You are very right. Yes is a good lokking clown, but the background takes away from that.

I really like her makeup. Great colors. The thing sticking out of her shoulder is a bit distracting for me as is the strap on the opposite shoulder. Without those two things and perhaps a less busy background, I would have scored it even higher. Good luck in the challenge.

Wow what a nice looking clown. The facial expression is pretty priceless. Good job.

Cute. Colors are very good.

This shot just doesn't do much for me.

I don't know if it's the look on her face or what, but for some reason... this clown doesn't seem so child oriented.

Did she really have to have the wallet there and the handbag strap on the other side?

What a lovely model, and well shot. Usually I'm liking the really saturated stuff in this challenge, but here the softer approach is much better suited.

Nice portrait. Great lips.

she looks sad a bit overexposed 8

Nice, crisp and clean image.

nice makeup, but the background is pretty boring. but i doubt you had barely any control for that.

I like you focus on her face, and the makeup is very nice. You could have made her do more of a "clown" pose. Make it more humorous like a clown?

My eyes keep being drawn to the background items...that is a let down.

By far one of the best makeup jobs I've seen in this challenge. I think I'd crop tighter to get rid of the background busyness above the clown's head.

this is lovely. very unusual clown face... where was this taken?

Finally.. A lovely clown and I never thought I would say that phrase!!! I love her she's such a pretty clown, well-executed!
