Nice refreshing idea for the challenge. Well composed but I find the post processing a little harsh on her face. Otherwise, well done.

Very unique, good light, angle and composition.

Good portrait and pose. the skin tones seem a bit off. Especially the high key yellow area around her right eye and brow.

Beautiful! Both picture and model!

She may be a country girl, but there is nothing in the photo that says this. I'm not sure that tatoos are a country-girl thing ... normally the branding is on the cattle.

That said, it is a nice picture, well posed, etc.

Great composition! I love the eyes, they draw you into the photo.

A nice shot, but definitely a bit of a stretch on the challenge theme.

Good shot. The light on her face is a little harsh.

That is such a spectacular portrait! It does seem just a tad of a stretch for the challenge, but I've never been one to be that narrow about letting people use their own interpretation of a challenge. . .and a picture this fabulous just doesn't deserve anything but a wonderful score! It's just perfect! 10

Wow! Great photo, good luck. 9

hmmm...stretching the challenge, but I will take your word for it that she's a country girl! great protrait

Beautiful protrait with a very pretty girl. The pose is nice and the lighting is good. The shadow of her chin on her hand is a little distracting. On my monitor there seems to be a strange yellow section in the centre of her arm with an abrupt transition to orange - maybe due to sponge saturation tool? I would have tried to do something with that one tooth - it's not the tooth as much as the gap between it and the upper lip. This turned out to be a much longer comment than I intended - it does not mean I don't like it!

I've just got to learn how to do this. Shame I can't vote...
02/14/2006 12:06:36 AM
Very nice work, bumping up!
02/13/2006 05:01:17 PM
I love the photo, however, the photo should reflect the theme witout the words having to describe why it relates to the theme.
02/13/2006 01:55:50 PM
I dont know if this is well recieved or not...
It doesnt shout country life to me and lookes like it was shoehorned into the challenge with the title.
However, I like this, the pose and the clothes and the expression and the props all add up to a very nicely done portrait...
There´s a bit of yellow/orange in her face and on her arms... but still an 8 from me.

i like the colours here, good pose, great model.
02/13/2006 02:16:17 AM
Trying to see the country in this young chick ... and it ain't singing to me ... Interesting portrait.

Nice composition. The skin is soft and velvety without that overprocessed look. I think this is a great portrait. Maybe a tad of a stretch, but good nonetheless. 7
