Shouldn't there be a rule against using such beautiful subjects in these challenges? Lol.

Great lighting, great subject with a great expression, but it's alittle too soft around her cheeks and neck - especially on her left side. I would have liked to see her whole head, sharper eyes, and the backlight raised a tad bit.

A really nice photo though.

Great shot and appropriate title. I love the capture but it's not quite B&W

Maybe not black and white but she is still beautiful. Great portrait.

the soft focus on this shot is not working for me.

Perfect example of the debate over "color". After all the noise and BS there is still a great photograph to enjoy. The B&W flavor is prevalent without being exclusive. The color is necessary. Nice job.

Either go with sharper relief or softer focus. This seems to right in the middle and it gives the impression of being oof.

Its a beautiful protrait, but it doesnt feel like B&W to me. I would have used this for the color on color challenge.

OK, I came back to it.. I really like this portrait, so Im going to up my score. 7

This is a color picture. "Almost" meeting the challenge is not the same as meeting it. A small spot of color in a mostly black and white picture may be unavoidable, but this is mostly color.
