beautiful shot!! lighting is amazing.
02/27/2006 08:13:52 PM
What an excellent job. I like the rawness of it and the attitude in the girl's face is wonderful. She is believable as an 80's punk rock star. Two thumbs up and one middle finger ;)
02/27/2006 07:01:28 PM
Congrats on a great image !
02/27/2006 04:43:23 PM
Outstanding finish for a very powerful image... WELL DONE. :)
02/27/2006 02:55:58 PM
Man, I'd like to see those people who voted 2,3, and 4 on this shot try and get ANYTHING close to a beautiful shot like this. Voting down an image based purely on possible lack of meeting the challenge EXACTLY is stupid. Anyway - you got the last laugh with this ribbon - good on ya!
02/27/2006 01:56:28 PM
wicked, should be blue... great job, you probably got hammered for the finger.... bummer.
02/27/2006 12:18:31 PM
Perfect illustration of the 80's! Congratulations on your first ribbon. This really deserves it!
02/27/2006 11:42:12 AM
Great shot indeed... you dserve the ribbon. It would have been even more appropriate had the challenge been The 70s seeing as how that was when the Sex Pistols were making headlines.

congrats on the ribbon!
02/27/2006 07:12:16 AM
I'm so happy this ribboned! My favorite of the challenge. Congratualations on your red :)
02/27/2006 05:30:13 AM
BADASS. and although it might not technically be 80's, who cares, it's only one year inbetwixt that sid died...but they themselves didn't. i have many sex pistols songs in my ipod today, and hell, its 2006. and the anarchy symbol? i had a period in highschool in the 80's where i signed the the A in my name as that just (for them)...so they lived then and they still do today. so there is that. ;) this photo rocks.

A huge congrats on your ribbon. I loved this image and was very pleased it did so well. Awesome.
02/27/2006 03:31:17 AM
Simply stunning ! Congratulations !
02/27/2006 02:59:39 AM
Wow, what a stunning photo, captures the era so well. Congrats on your Red ribbon!!!!
02/27/2006 02:10:21 AM
Loved the Sex Pistols. You could've called it Malcolm McLaren who was still working in the 80's but fewer ppl would've got it. Congrats on the ribbon.
02/27/2006 01:38:56 AM
Nice work! Congrats on ribbon.

Hey don't let facts get in the way of an awesome picture! Also, maybe the middle finger was meant for the 80's in general?
02/27/2006 12:49:45 AM
Great job! Congrats!
02/27/2006 12:40:45 AM

Not sure I like all the dead space. The model looks great, I'd love to see a closer shot.

Terrific image!
02/24/2006 04:12:16 AM
Oh the punk era. love it. The colors are fantastic however the image is a bit soft. Still a high score from me.
02/23/2006 11:39:20 PM
beautiful image. compostionally elegant and well lit.
02/23/2006 10:53:25 AM
I saw someone with this same hairdo at the movie theater last weekend! Seriously. The retro movement I guess. ;^) Good luck in the challenge.
02/23/2006 03:00:00 AM
Great photo, and nice use of the shadow of the hard, composition is good! I'd personally have liked it a little sharper but I quite like the softer effect as well
02/22/2006 06:53:16 PM
The very fake mohawk kind of turns me off this (it loses some authenticity). Still, it's a pretty cool shot. The white anarchy thing pinned to her chest is kind of distracting. It's hard to make out at first.
02/22/2006 05:59:34 PM
perfect summing up of the 80s, great shot
02/22/2006 05:18:52 PM
My favorite for this challenge. Very direct and boldly positiond. I even find a very cool attractiveness in the model. Great job.
02/22/2006 08:18:47 AM
Sid Vicious and the Sex Pistols died in the 70s. Anyway, cool lighting and cool composition...
02/21/2006 04:10:45 PM
The Sex Pistols are a 70s thing, as was most punk.
02/21/2006 10:56:03 AM
well, the Pistols were 70's... and no punks were as pretty as this... but hey, big props for giving the finger!
02/21/2006 10:09:14 AM
love this.. love the sex pistols.. get the feeling just right
02/21/2006 07:45:07 AM
Love the lighting, don't know about the image on front of the dress/shirt, lovely negative space on the right :)
02/20/2006 10:27:53 PM
Love the lighting and coloring in this image, very nicely done!
02/20/2006 03:52:15 PM
a classic of the 80's images, but so well done. I like it :)
02/20/2006 12:34:22 PM
As rotten as Johnny could be.
Excellent shot.
02/20/2006 11:34:08 AM
I like the negative space, not as keen on the lighting though, a little too harsh for my taste. 6 from me.
02/20/2006 11:06:13 AM
My favorite after having seen all the photos.
Nice , "dark" , good composition , good make up.
02/20/2006 09:11:53 AM
When I think "Sex Pistols"...I think mid to later 70's really...
02/20/2006 03:04:17 AM
Nice image ... I really think this is a good one.
02/20/2006 02:26:15 AM
cool image
02/20/2006 02:18:36 AM
NICE! I realy like it, hope you dont get voted down for "the finger" cause I know some will.
I wont...
02/20/2006 01:46:36 AM
probably a little too much empty space on the right...nice shot though
02/20/2006 01:20:12 AM
02/20/2006 01:16:16 AM
AWESOME!!! My fav so far.
02/20/2006 12:47:17 AM
Excellent - just what I would have done had I had the talent:)) Captures the flavour, the zietgeist and the undercurrent of the time. Congrats 10
