Hey there from the Critique Club

First of all, congrats on yet another ribbon, as well as your second highest scoring photo to date. I'll also provide a bit of clarification, as least as I understand it, for chispa. As long as the "artwork" is not the subject of the image, it is allowed. In this example, it is not the subject, rather it is a small portion of the overall composition.

Camera Work/Technical: Everything looks nicely focused and very crisp. The tonal range is also very nice, thus making this image particularly appealing.

Lighting: Great, even lighting here with no losses in blown highlights or dark shadows. The reflection on the top right of the magazine cover is mildly distracting, but not nearly enough to detract from the overall scoring of the image.

Composition/Content: Absolutely wonderful for this challenge. You hit the challenge on the nose, meanwhile presenting a issue that faces young girls climbing into maturity. I like it! The placement of the magazine is spot on, as is the placement of your "props." Very nice work.

My Opinion: Personally, I think this one deserved second. While the first two shots in the challenge are nice, my favorite is 5th place, submitted by jaded_youth, followed very closely by this one. Another well-deserved ribbon and top score.

Eric

I think this image is fabulous!!!

BUT why is the magazine allowed?? I thought artwork (including magazine covers) were not allowed.. if they are then why aren't other artistic images allowed (like monitor images)? Just want clarification : )

Classic, I won't say that you should have won blue (because I love Lesley's shot), but IMO, better than the red in creativity and craftwork.

Julie, congratulations on the yellow ribbon. Nice idea for the photo. At work, we call this a SWIPE (Steal With Integrity and Pride Everywhere). having the idea is only the first obstacle. Executing is the difficult part, and you executed this very well. Steve

The technique, while a bit cliché, does work well with the challenge criteria I suppose. Iím sure that this will do well. Good luck!

Creative use of magazine positioning to capture more information about the subject's personality

Clever way to show the inherent conflict in many teenage girls between their remaining childhood desire to just play, race around, get dirty, use up their energy and their desire to grow up more quickly and join the adult world of glamour and fashion and dating and independence...

nice juxtaposition. and nice b&w conversion. 8
  Photographer found comment helpful.
10/09/2006 03:40:36 PM
That's just excellent...

edit: Just came back for a second look - and your picture is still great. The idea might not be very original, but you've still created something special - probably due to the contradiction between the "real girl" and the "glam girl"... I'll raise my rating by one...
  Photographer found comment helpful.
10/09/2006 03:38:27 PM
Very creative. This is one that doesn't even need a title.

lol, this is one of my favs so far, wish there was a little bit more interest in the background, but it really is a great idea. and you matched the magazine sooo well. nice job
  Photographer found comment helpful.
10/09/2006 02:07:41 PM
That is fantastic, I like the way the picture and the girl lined up and her hair just seemed to flow right onto the page. I also like the B&W effect which bring the tones together. Top ten if not a ribbon!
