lots of leveles adjustments and masking. gradient map and clone two small spots on her arm. crop, resize, usm and border.

Thanks for all the comments so far guys(and gals). this was a funny set up. I had to put hooks in the ceiling to hang up a backgorund on the other side of the room so that the mirror wouldnt reflect all the clutter in the room but I am so short I had to use a step stool AND high heels. almost killed myself. :P

Congratulations on your excellent 5th place Crystal. Again, another stunning piece of work from you. Those heart tights are just too cute for words.
Someone mentioned the creases in your backdrop - I thought it was tiles ;-)

Beautiful shot! I love the dreamy mood here. The dress and pantyhose are well chosen.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
10/15/2006 10:07:33 AM
This is very good. I love the shape of her dress, the ribbon and the heart tights. I can imagine the face without seeing it, which I think is what this challenge is about. Well done, good luck!
  Photographer found comment helpful.
10/15/2006 02:46:00 AM
Dreamy, warm, and mystical. Nice job!
  Photographer found comment helpful.
10/13/2006 10:20:26 PM
I really like the acid looking background. It creates somewhat of a ghostly look. 8
  Photographer found comment helpful.
10/13/2006 07:39:06 PM
A cool and fun image with a somewhat familiar touch? ;) Back to bump to 8.

The coolest thing about this picture is that the reflection looks wrong. It creates a sense of magic so important to the shot. 8

Great interpretation of the challenge! Lovely outfit for the young lady - the flare of the skirt especially works. The background is a nice professional finishing touch. (Is this Odyssey?)
  Photographer found comment helpful.
10/10/2006 05:54:17 PM
I am going to go out on a limb here and predict this is the winning entry...well done! (10)

Alice in Wonderland. This is just over all good. Everything appeals.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
10/09/2006 01:41:45 PM
Wonderful processing! I am going to guess that this is jaded-youth's daughter. I love the allusion to Alice in Wonderland, cute dress and tights. Bumping up to a 10, I've gone through the entire challenge and this is among the best.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
