My favorite image that portrays success so well. Congratulations on placingin the top10. Though I thought this one would ribbon.

what a fabulous image...should end up at the top

Very powerful. Nicely done!

I like how the photo fades to black at the bottom.

It's a little oversharpened/over contrasted on some places--the white specks and blob above the subject's head--the concept and composition and dramatic lighting, however, really works and makes it a cut above the other graduation-themed ones. :)

very good... love it... good lighting...
05/29/2006 06:48:07 PM
Lighting's nice. couldve used a little cleaning though.
05/29/2006 10:37:55 AM
the white behind thier head is distracting, maybe overexposed hair?
05/28/2006 02:09:11 AM
Love the backlight, love that it's b&w. 10
05/27/2006 02:45:00 PM
Excellent composition and exposure.
05/27/2006 08:34:09 AM
great shot for this challenge, with great lighting !
05/27/2006 01:11:05 AM
This is an outstanding B/W photograph. I like the way it transitions from totally dark at the bottom to powerful light at the top. Very dramatic.
05/26/2006 07:04:48 PM
Great light, the look of an evil genius. :)
05/26/2006 12:41:51 PM
Great shot. This feels like so much more than a simple graduation. It has the look of a very hard earned achievement. I love the lighting.

05/26/2006 10:04:04 AM
Wow, dramatic lighting works well!
05/26/2006 07:35:09 AM
This is staged, right? :) ... The result is powerful.
05/25/2006 06:25:33 PM
Although there are a lot of graduate pictures in this challenge, yours tops my list.
05/25/2006 05:52:16 PM

05/25/2006 04:33:31 PM

05/25/2006 11:29:00 AM
great lighting 10
05/25/2006 11:20:14 AM
If she/he's so happy...where is the smile to show it. Nice photo but I'm not too fond of the white spot, it't taking all the attention away from the subject.
05/25/2006 12:00:50 AM
05/24/2006 11:13:04 PM
this looks too posed - she should be more excited about her "success"
05/24/2006 09:07:01 PM
I love the shadows, the angles... the whole enchilada - very well done
05/24/2006 06:21:44 PM
the white spot is hot and distacting but the rest of the image works well.,
05/24/2006 05:47:45 PM
Nicely stylized.
05/24/2006 01:11:46 PM
where's the smile? when I graduated you couldn't wipe the smile off of my face if you tried! great photo though ...
05/24/2006 11:07:56 AM
One of the few 'good' photos that have something to do with success.
05/24/2006 09:23:32 AM
I love the angle and the lighting.
05/24/2006 08:53:46 AM
I am so going to copy this when my son graduates next year!!
05/24/2006 05:30:27 AM
