I would like to thank my daughter Sandra, who was very patient with this shot, it took more than 3 hours (probably because the lack of equipment) so I had to improvise all the lighting.

This one has been my first portrait, so I hope to do OK, I had a lot of fun (some times I felt frustrated because I didn't get what I was expecting) but after post processing I'm happy with the results.

An excellent use of lighting and in using the make-up and the glitter to further exploit the light.

The overall picture is glamorous and I really like it, but for some reason the overall effect makes me feel sad for the young lady.

Great job!! (8)

great photo. Not keen on the border color though, it adds too much color to the scene and it's contrast takes away from the overall contrast in the photo.

Very original. I like the splashes of color and the contrasting darkness. Beautiful

I don't know if this is cute or creepy. Neat image, but doesn't say "hair".

Oooohh. I hope that didn't dry on! LOL What we won't do in the quest for a little imaginary ribbon! I wish I could bottle the creativity from this challenge. Yours is among the most creative. Good luck.
