thanks for the votes and comments all, a new personal best for me :D

We had an assignment for school, and arranged the location, models, clothing, make-up.. It was fantastic!

While there, we wanted to use strobes, but they didn't work together. So we had to decide to use reflection screens with the available sunlight.

This is the kind of shot that a bride at a wedding would kill for. Great venue set up and lighting.

WONDERFUL! i loved this when i voted on it and and i still love it. i actually really like how part of the building is blown out because it really draws attention to the models. what is a reflection screen? is it just bigger than a regular reflector?

the spacial relationships are exquisite here. the focus remains on the woman,as she invites us into the image, and the triangle men provide a strong storyline. the tones are also lovely. very theatrical!

This is truely a breathtaking image, and I love it.
The lighting is just so special, and so natural, and it really helps to make the image "pop" for me.....

Wow, I'm not sure if I commented on this before, but it's awesome. The bright lights coming from the window make an awesome background and the placing of the models is also superb :)

This is AMAZING!!! I could care less if it had been in your portfolio first! This photo NEEDED to be in a competition, and as you can see by the 7.1017 score and 8th place out of over 619 entries, no one thought anything of it!

Congratulations on such an amazing accomplishment with this photo!

wow. When I saw this I said out loud, "I want to take photos like that". Very inspiring.
  Photographer found comment helpful.

I'm not going to say: -"This should win!!!", because superior material like this photo never wins here. But I can say: -"You did it!... Yes you did it!". The future will let you understand (more deeply) what I mean.

First-rate in every way.
This picture has so much going for it, and can honestly say that I could see this in a gallery, a wedding apparel store or in a fine magazine.

Bravo.

There we go - Great image - Love the PP love the exposure - Blown out highlights actually make this image even better - Don't let anyone tell you any different! The composition is fab - Love her expression - Nice capture giving it a 10 just for all the elements coming together for a great looking pic. Well done.

03/01/2007 02:11:19 PM
I dont think its right to post your photos or outakes all over the forums and then post them in a free study. The image itself is very nice and I would have probably given you a 7 or 8, but I'm sorry but I am giving you a 3.
