Thought I added this as a favorite during the challenge.
Now corrected. Should have placed much higher in my opinion.

Ridiculously low. This is outstanding! It should have been top 25 for sure.

Great shot. I love the shallow DOF, the B/W tones, and the expression on her face.

7 - Nice portrait. Toning works well. Main detractor in my opinion are the knees dominate the image too much, perhaps the pose a little more side on, who knows. Also, a fraction nudge rotate up on the right (if you were able) just to get the boardwalk/decking straightened, or at least the line cropped out - if that makes sense. Toning works well.

She looks different than in the magazines... :)

Unorthodox pose for photography. What? She has exceptional knees? ;>þ
  Photographer found comment helpful.
10/05/2006 03:00:26 PM
wow, what a beautiful model. oh, and a good picture, too! I like the foreshortening of the knees, the way you make the perspective lines of the bridge look like a box that she's trapped in.

there's something very compelling about this shot

great lighting, great tones. I like it as black and white also. Her expression could be better Ithink, but it isnt horrid.
  Photographer found comment helpful.

fabulous! love her expression and very nice tones! 9

Nice tones selected for this photo. Interesting composition, however she looks very uncomfortable/unnatural in the chosen pose. You may have been better served (if your objective was to keep her below the railings) to have her sitting against one side or the other? JMO of course. Good luck in the challenge.

Excellent! A great portrait with feeling. Esp. I like the natural look here. The pose doesn't look that overstated, as many other photos do. Beautiful model, well chosen location and technically perfect. Well done, good luck for the challenge. 10 + fav.

Great composition and what an excellent choice for a black & white.
The depth of field chosen works well on this.
