those splotches... bad skin that you can't fix in basic. And pale... yes that was an artistic choice.

had this hat I bought for when I'm freezing in Philly and figured I had to use it for a photo. :) I'm please with the outcome.

i finally decided to look at your portfolio. Love this image. :) i dont care about the splotches or how light her skin is. the pale or light color of skin is fantastic! i think that it adds a lot to the shot. i think that her lips and skin tone make a wonderful contrast. I like the empty space to the left. over all i think you should have gotten a ribbon, but i suppose getting 4th isnt too bad either.

Fantastic job over all! (maybe if another self portrait challenge comes up we can go head to head.)

i shouldnt have voted this a 5, this is great. allthough thinking back i think i did because they were sunglasses and not 'glasses/specticals'

This is a gorgeous shot but one thing that bugs me is her nose looks flat. Maybe shade her nose a little bit more to give it depth.

Beautiful. I prefer the composition on this one as compared to your outtake, though the outtake seems a bit sharper. Love the sense of movement in both.

Splotchy skin? Pale? Who cares! It's FABULOUS!!! Congrats on 4th!

I'm going back and forth with which picture I like best, the one you chose, or the outtake.

I'm torn.

Anyway, I just wanted to say that I absolutely ADORE what you have going on in this picture, and she reminds me of Anne Hathaway. Particularly in this picture:

Awesome stuff Monica. Congrats on 4th. The composition is bold and the expressionless facial expression says it all!

Such a pale face. Such a pale composition for that matter. It's nice but I don't really like the placement.
01/15/2008 09:26:50 PM
Wonderful colours! Great specs love it

Of course this is so cool. The coloring, lighting, composition and action captured seal the deal.

i really like this. It's one of my favorite styles. The kind of "urban look"
  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/11/2008 01:24:40 PM
This one is definately very cool i like the motion of the hair, but the stillness of the glasses and face.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/11/2008 10:25:22 AM
I love your composition. it just works. there are some strange blotches on her face that I'd like to see removed, but overall a very lovely image.

LOOOOOOVE IT!

Nice capture and a good choice of crop to set the mood. She's walking by, and turns briefly to see something - snap: a moment captured.
Good job.

01/10/2008 05:55:35 PM
nice composition
too bad the nose and the skin look so strange here. I can't avoid seeing those dark spots all over the face.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/10/2008 05:51:11 PM
great composition, great model, refreshing to see a little action in this challenge
  Photographer found comment helpful.

I really like the contrast and limited color palette. This is one of my favorites. It looks like a magazine ad. I like that the girl looks like she's headed off the frame and her hair is turning... shows lots of movement, yet her face is serious and looking straight on. Nicely done!
  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/10/2008 08:28:41 AM
Feels like painting, I like that
  Photographer found comment helpful.

great fashion shot
  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/09/2008 10:54:42 PM
So stylish... beautifully shot. I love the predominantly grey tones and the reds of her hair and lips. Framing is perfect too - the trailing/negative space really works well.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/09/2008 06:49:32 PM
this picture really jumps out at the viewer. Bravo!
  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/09/2008 06:47:57 PM
Great picture! I really like how candid this picture looks and the color of her lips, and her glasses looks so unique. Good job
  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/09/2008 06:46:05 PM
This is probably my favorite photograph of the bunch. The framing is just right and the color of her lipstick adds the little bit of color. Excellent shot!
