Outstanding shot i really like the result! The eyes really attracted my attention.

I'm sure the placement of this shot speaks for itself.
I love the non-standard pose, the lighting, the tones in her perfect skin, and those eyes are simply awesome!
Brilliant shot, but again, you only have to glance at this to see that.

Congratulations. Great finish out of 612 entries.
Such a beautiful model and the lighting is perfect.
I've tried unsuccessfully to achieve that pose and look.
You're both winners on this one!

Congratulations!

Where are you finding women like this Justin?
  Photographer found comment helpful.
10/08/2006 01:14:35 AM
Very nice. Did you dodge the colored part of her eyes at all, or was that the result of the lighting?
  Photographer found comment helpful.
10/08/2006 12:37:03 AM
Very clean & sweet, Justin. I'm in love with the rendering of the stones :-)

Beautiful portrait. Nice use of lighting. I also like how the tones in her necklace go with the background you used.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
10/03/2006 10:07:00 PM
Wow, I like this image. The stones are nice especially for an ad, but somewhat distracting, I would like to see it with classic pearls, exotic shells or a single diamond. 10

I like your portrait photo. Perhaps a subtle change in cheek blusher might help.

I love the color tones in this, the neclace is lovely I just wish it was a little softer. 9
  Photographer found comment helpful.
10/01/2006 06:07:34 PM
Your model's pose is well done - I like the slight tilt of her head and her bare shoulders. Might be too much neat image. The tight crop works well.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
10/01/2006 05:42:03 PM
This is beautiful. She is beautiful. I love the light on her left shoulder.

Skin tones and eyes are wonderful, great work.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
10/01/2006 01:38:46 AM
I love the lighting on the subject except I'm thrown off by the two sparkles I see in the eyes. I somehow expect to one see one.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
10/01/2006 12:54:03 AM
Beautiful portrait. Great eyes and skin. Spot on lighting. Not sure about the necklace. I think it might slightly detract from her face, but man, that face! This is GREAT.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
10/01/2006 12:44:04 AM
nicely done...good tones. Perhaps a bit of noise or maybe it's a filter effect. Nice sharpness though from hair to the rocks.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
10/01/2006 12:15:24 AM
Absolutely stunning. The skin tones are perfect.
