You look different, Caleb! I like the overexposed window and the lines of light. the facial expression works perfectly for this theme of facing something that threatens to overwhelm you. 7

use sunscreen and protect your eyes.

I like the composition of this shot and the bright lighting. The grey vertical lines on the left side of the shot are a little distracting to me, but I like the stripes created on your shoulder and face.

Just awesome! Perfect amount of light on your face and just enough detail in the white area to balance it out! Great work!!!

Excellent use of lighting. I think you nailed this one. The lines of light across your face and shoulder are sweet. Very nicely done.

Wonderful use of light here. I can only imagine how difficult it was getting without overexposing some areas. 9

Great shot! I love negative space and it works well here with a great composition, the lighting really sets this shot off for me :)

My favorite detail is the sunlight filtered through the blinds onto your shoulder. Very nice!

Wonderful tricks of light, cool balance between you and the highlights, perfect subject placement. 8

I like the high key, I think it would have been nicer if all of you or at least a little more of the left side was there, it looks kind of weird this way.

This reminds me of a 1960's "beach movie" only with a twist : )

Some of the white is almost too intense, but it may just be my monitor....hmmmm.

Lovely shot, very pretty. 7

I really like the overexposed window and the lines on your cheek and shoulder, just think you could have been more in the frame, you are not too shy are you? You also seem to be photogenic, think you should do more self portraits. Good job.

very provocative

I really like the combination of shapes between the lines from the sun and the dots on the bathing suit, but I'm not loving the crop

I guess this is Anastasia! Am I right?
05/19/2006 09:48:51 AM
I love those little slivers of light on your shoulders and face...excellent

I bet you're getting a bunch of comments for this one. This is awesome! The lighting could not be better! I'M PROUD! 10

I'm not sure if I like the crop or not. It certainly makes me want to see more which is a good thing I guess. Well done.

Very creative. Not sure about the crop, but the lighting and overall beauty of the image makes me overlook it. :) Well done.
