post challenge: YEAH!! finally... thought I had lost it but I guess I'm back : ) Yes, this is a self-portrait and I shot it in b&w mode on my (dare I say it) point and shoot. I bought tons of black and white ribbon that was on clearance and some tinsel for my neck. It turned out exactly as I had planned it. Thanks everyone!

I love this photo. It's not easy to get peoples vote with BW but clowns... double difficult. Very good job here, your posing and composition here with the quality of the image got you the blue :)

this is too cute ;) good job
  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/15/2008 03:57:24 PM
Lovely B&W, I reckon this will make the top ten, well composed, good sharp eyes and excellent levels
  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/15/2008 12:39:55 AM
Good shot, but I think the b/w takes away from the colorfulness that we all know about clowns. Still well done.
01/14/2008 03:03:35 PM
Good idea using b/w on such a colorful subject. The high contrast was a must, and this was well done. That foam nose just pops out at me.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/13/2008 12:43:12 PM
Fun. I like the paper curls. Very effective in B&W and nice composition.
  Photographer found comment helpful.

  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/11/2008 06:33:20 PM
Very cure expression and I like the b&w contrast. Back to bump you up to 8.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/11/2008 03:56:36 PM
I really like this one - specially because clowns usually means a lot of colors... You did a very good job WITHOUT colors...
  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/11/2008 12:33:05 PM
Great expression on your model's face! Fun image 8

  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/10/2008 12:27:56 AM
Wonderful - love that you choose B&W - I think it's brave and paid off. Colour is over-rated - GRIN!

Has a good feel, should do well
  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/09/2008 10:33:56 PM
Expression is more neutral than sour.. nice b&w though
  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/09/2008 08:00:51 PM
what a great image! love the expression, and the use of black and white, though clowns are usually very colourfull. the curvy string is also great at framing the face. good job!
  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/09/2008 03:37:31 PM
Cute take...my eyes keep being drawn to the lips...I think some color...but not all would have helped. So instead of going colour or black and white..maybe a half way point would be better.
01/09/2008 01:49:24 PM
Jutilda?? ;) classic expression.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/09/2008 12:15:54 PM
why not color?
01/09/2008 10:52:48 AM
love the expression my pick for top honors
  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/09/2008 09:09:21 AM
Interesting perspective and good DOF for this shot. I do like the model's expression and the curly "hair." Whites look a little blown out on my screen but I don't find that too much of a distraction.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/09/2008 08:20:54 AM
Awesome B&W Conversion.
