same comment as the cigar one - tightened the crop to put her eyes on the third-lines, and bring her more in touch with the viewer, without losing any necessary information. Love the angle that you approached this one with - this is one of my favourites in your portfolio.

Lovely and again lovely. Great tonal values along with attractive hues to capture the essence of this lovely subject with great texture on the mink. Congratulations on your 6th place.

Would make a nice fur hat commercial, but I don't like to see commercials. 3

What a hypnotic stare! Lovely angle and very good w,b. and exposure.

Very pretty girl. The blowing hair and the mink around the neck make this look very cold - as though the hat is absolutely necessary. The shot is really nice. Just one thing bothers me -- the spots on the front of the hat. I can't tell what they are so they become distracting.

Beautiful lighting. I really like the catchlights in her eyes.

Very nice. Probably the best of the challenge. Perfect focus and lighting. The movement of her hair adds a nice touch. Her eyes are beautiful!!!

Beautifully executed and composed.

Nicely lit. Pretty model. The hairs flying up in the back are a bit distracting. I think it's more because the hair in front is so motionless that the back ones seem out of place.

Sonderful emotion, and very clear eyes.....killier looks. Thanks for sharing

Beutiful colors and focus! The pink lipstick makes the picture pop!

Beautiful model and sharp picture. The lighting coming off the beads on the hat is a little distracting. At first glance, it looked like there may have been something wrong with the photo (perhaps lens dust or something). Score: 7.

It's a little hard to see the hat (as dark as it is, it loses detail in the upper parts). BUT DANG! She's beautiful! She makes this hat look GOOD! :-)
