Greetings from the Critique Club!

This is a wonderful image and I love the colors, the set up, the lighting, the focus, the model's look. It's a great overall shot. I scored it high during the challenge, the only thing missing was the hair, though I can't talk, I had pretty short hair during most of the 80's as well, LOL!

There really isn't much for me to offer in the way of critique, it's a great shot.

Hope my comments help.

By far one of the sleekiest images with great tonal values, a strong composition and telling facial expressions to celebrate an era. Congratulations on your top ten finish.

Pose is good, "boom box" is a little small for the 80's...they were huge back then. (hmmmm, come to think of it, is that a CD player? They would not have existed back in the 80's in that style)

Love the color. The radio should have a tape.

hmm...that boombox seems a little bit too modern for the 80's aint it??

Excellent colors and contrast.

Hey, I recognize this shot :) Nice work, although the CD player isn´t really fitting with the 80´s theme at all... Hope you do well in the challenge :)

Good composition and you would never leave your ghetto-blaster at home in those days. Colours are spot on. It's the 80's all right. I think I would have made more out of the woman, not the blaster, a little out of balance, but I like it.

Good portrait, the radio doesn't look very eighties with that cd player, lcd and round forms but I don't care. 8

I quite like the shot-- great lighting & colors. Would have probably worked a bit better with a casette tape boom box-- this one feels a bit to contemporary.

Boom boxes were very popular in the 80's - not this shape though.

don't remember cd players like that in the 80's??

Flott mynd, en þessi geislaspilari er ekki alveg að fitta inn.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
02/20/2006 05:47:08 AM
I very much doubt that's an 80s model stereo. Nice colours, though.

Great concept, the eyebrows are quite wrong for the period that I remember .. but good pic and background.
