Oh cool...

I didn't know that was you, but you got a (9).

:)

I should have known it was the self-portrait queen.

Nice pic. I like the pose, the slight lighting of the subject and there is something very spicy about the edges where the garment has altered the smooth lines of contour.

Why didn't you guys save room for me? Congrats on the Top 10...

Congrats! I didn't get a chance to vote but this is impressive...

"the female of the species is more deadly than the male..." - was that a kipling reference or from the band space? Either way, I would like to see what that picture would have looked like...

An outstanding and highly impressive silhoutte. Possibly one of the best silhoutte compositions in DPC.

Excellent photo on so many levels.

I like the curves. It could be better if she were undressed (note the clothes over the curves).
  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/08/2006 06:47:15 PM
Good concept. With silhouettes, you need smooth lines to make it pop. Bumps on hip and underarm hold this image back.

very nice

superb entry, great idea, excellent composition... i hope this ribbons or places in the top 10

I like the black and white, but i think it would have looked better with the black cropped to the midline of her body.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/07/2006 04:29:42 PM
Totally sucks. I give it a 1. haha. this is still among my tops. The only thing I don't like, and this is a total nitpick, is I'm guessing your undies are making your hip less smooth. 9

Good one, I think this meets the challenge nicely

Has that 007 feel to it, great idea
  Photographer found comment helpful.

Very nice an creative. I would prefer if it weren't so centered.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/06/2006 12:43:55 PM
one of the best from the challenge. My only comment is the lines are a bit revealing of the model's clothing. This would have been very effective had the model been nude, but I understand that is always not available. 10

My favorite image in this challenge. It's clean, fits the challenge topic very well. I like the ambiguity between positive and negative space. There is a little room for improvement though. I think the distortions in the form made by clothing straps hurt a lot.
Thanks for submitting this.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/06/2006 07:46:22 AM
Very nice. Good idea, well executed, should score high.
One caveat : a nude would have been even better, the contour is not fluid enough.
Good luck.

My favourite this far. 10.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/05/2006 12:56:23 PM
you can tell that the model is wearing clothes... the little lumps and bumps slightly detract from what is other wise a wonderful picture!
  Photographer found comment helpful.

Several shots in this challenge have been so graphic, they no longer appeared to be photographs. I reall like how this one has just enough light on the model that textures and lines are visible on her pants, face, and hands. Great image.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/05/2006 10:55:20 AM
Nice! I like the splashes of light on the face and hand.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/05/2006 10:15:25 AM
This is kind of cool. I like the contrast.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/04/2006 11:11:13 PM
What a great idea! Very well executed. I particulary like how the outline of the jaw is still visible, yet everything else is a pure silhouette. But I would have much preferred a smooth contour, not marred by clothes. 7

Too much black a needs a crop on the right
  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/04/2006 07:17:40 PM
well, isn't this just a nice graphic? Nice job!

Very neat photograph.

What a good idea!!
  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/04/2006 12:25:30 PM
Several silouhettes in this challenge and yours imediately caught my eye. This is a good example of taking a simple idea that is pretty common and adding that little twist that just makes it pop out and special. One of my best.
  Photographer found comment helpful.

Really like how you have used the shape of the person to divide the light and dark. Well done, only thing I "might" have tried was to make the division on the thirds more. Would have to see it to really know if it would have worked better or not though. And you may have already tried it and not like it as well. Oh well, really do like it and hope you do well
  Photographer found comment helpful.

Simple bold contrasting hue of B&W present here in this photo make me think upon the shape of the woman seen in the dividing line between the black and white BUT I also see the shape of a curvy vase set on a white backdrop. Excellent presentation and capture.

01/04/2006 10:47:38 AM
This would have more impact is the lines were smooth, i think. Was the model clothed? The underarm, waist and hip all have a bunched appearance that detracts from the overall image. Lighting is very well done, however, i like the overall effect.

This is nice.. though the clothing ripples do kind of grab my attention.
