Your creativity dazzles me! Your imagination and photography is beyond DPC challenges, take it further girl, you have such a wonderful talent that you should take elsewhere, you are wasting your time here. When I see a masterpiece like this and see a placing of 194th I can only shake my head in disappointment. No offence to the top 3 placegetters in this challenge but this is by far the BEST photo of the lot! You are an inspiration for me Rengim!

Underrated!!! I gave this image a 10. I absolutely love it. It's creepy and intruiging. Great work.

Terrific. And I *like* the hollow around her right eye. And find the toning intruiging. Face it, some people just like the box they're in.

I found this image to be absolutely haunting, eerie and surreal. It was one of my 9's, and I can't believe it finished as low as it did. Except of course I can believe it, because weird, off-the-wall shots like this rarely do well at DPC... Regardless, congrats on a fine piece of work!

194th place? Wow, this is really underrated! Top 10 at least for me. Anyway: you did a great job.

I like her pose, but find the clock to be unnecesary. I think that there needs to be more light on her face and left arm.

not sure what story it is conveying, would love to hear the idea behind it from the photographer

I guess I just don't understand posed photographs. Perhaps I should give up.

Beautiful. I vote 9.

10/03/2006 10:28:21 AM
Odd but I like it. Reminds me of images that photonica used to agent. 8.

10/03/2006 10:17:19 AM
Boy oh boy... awesome! I love the desaturated colour that works so well with the washed out sky and the background to really set her off (no pun intended re the clock)... and the pose is wonderful and unusual. Excellent!

very emotive!

I love the tones, girl and her clock, but her face looks too soft/blurred around her right eye area 5
  Photographer found comment helpful.
10/02/2006 05:34:25 PM
nice tones and wonderfully backlit...interesting pose
  Photographer found comment helpful.

Great shot! Love the desat and lighting. Quite strange and dark atmosphere.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
10/02/2006 11:29:14 AM
Great work!

(I apologize for the short comment, but I don't have any suggestions. It's just perfect. I would be interested in some photo details after the challenge, to know more about your intention. Your shot made me stop for minutes to think about it.) Good luck for the challenge!

terrific job, no need to think to find out who took this briliant shot. 10
  Photographer found comment helpful.
10/01/2006 07:38:24 PM
Ok this is my favorite image thus far, and my first 10 I am granting. I love the lighting, the pose, the whole scene. If I may offer a suggestion... blur the buildings more and draw more focus to the girl. great job.

good concept color and crop, foreground a bit too dark -8

This photo has a lot going for it, but the mood of it puzzles me.

Nice shot, good backdrop, good use of the shades of white.

I can't understand why people try to mimic death doom and gloom in thier images, surely life is better than this...
  Photographer found comment helpful.

Very artful. I like it. The luminosity of her skin is gorgeous. This might be a bit too avant garde for this crowd, but I hope it does well for you. 8

this is wonderful.

Very arty. I guess the desaturtion works well for this sort of shot (or you just live in a drab, dull town ;>þ).
