Man, I'm getting tired of using me in challenges... I can only imagine you are as well!

Taken in my studio, again! I'm getting alot of practice on high key here! :)

This is an old hat a friend picked up for me at an estate sale. It's one of my faves... I wish I had a place to wear it more often.

I'm not expecting a great score, but I want to be more active and enter more challenges. This is my start. This is the 3rd week in a row. I need an update to push every 15 minutes now! :)


WOW!!!! Thanks everyone! It was a tough week for me, I sat at 7.28 all week and it started going downhill yesterday! I started getting worried that I would lose my personal best and a shot at the ribbon.

Anyways... This was taken a few hours before deadline and I'm very happy withe this image. Took me like 15 minutes to shoot! :)

*does happy dance*

Excellent work Lorrie, a stunning image. Great to hear the low voters couldn't hold this back :) Congratulations!
11/22/2006 03:51:01 PM
Hi Lorrie... congrats on your ribbon. I thought this image was wonderful and was very pleased to see you place so well. Great job!
11/22/2006 01:39:59 PM
I propose that DPC track down the people who vote 1's, 2's, and 3's on these types of shots, that are obviously undeserving of those votes, and ban their accounts.

What is the point of allowing trolls to affect our hard work?
11/22/2006 01:26:48 PM
Great shot! I knew this one was gonna be trouble. Be thankful you can score well with self portraits... we "harley" knew it was you anyway. ;-)
11/22/2006 12:11:36 PM
I didn't see tis picture when I voted, maybe I didn't get through them, or maybe you turned it in after I voted, but wow. Absolutely Gorgeous. Everything is good on this picture. I would've given it an 8-9.
It's a beautiful picture : )
Enjoy your happy dance!
11/22/2006 09:42:12 AM

Going with a 10 on this one, nice job..
11/21/2006 10:11:16 AM
Excellent fashion sense. I don't even mind the harshness of the lighting on her shoulder. Nice perspective. Well done. Bumping up.
11/21/2006 01:43:20 AM

This photo is certainly a "feather in your cap!" :)
11/17/2006 09:14:47 AM
Strong composition and great color in the feathers. Nicely done!
11/16/2006 11:53:02 PM
Beautiful composition and lighting. I like the light background it compliments the feathers. Gives the feeling of lightness.

Beautiful in every respect and my pick for a ribbon. Well done and good luck!
11/15/2006 08:46:52 PM
This is such a pretty shot. I love the composition and the colors. THe border is killing it for me though. The pic has such a mood of softness that comes to an abrupt halt at the border. Gorgeous set up and light. 7
11/15/2006 08:41:01 PM
I love the crop and colour in this shot 8
11/15/2006 08:11:39 PM

I love the colours in this shot - my favorite of the bunch so far. 10 for me!
11/15/2006 10:04:30 AM
Finally something good to look at. Whites are a little hot, nice detail in the feathers. 7 for now.
11/15/2006 02:10:25 AM
Should be up on the front page.
11/15/2006 02:00:51 AM
Really purdy and feathery. Nice image that should do well. Good luck!
