Hmmm... I was sure I left a comment during the challenge but don't see it here. I think this is one of the most evocative and perfectly shot images I've ever seen. Everything about it works for me.

sweet & simple

Lovely shot, framed so well.

Pretty.....like the frame and the movement!

So simple and innocent! Bravo!

I like this photo. I think what I like about it the most is that it is unique in the challenge. The orange is not overpowering, it is not a carrot, and it is not the first orange item you came to. The photo stands on its own as being a good photo. Very well done I think.

I like what you did here, and moreso, perhaps can see lots of good shots coming from this. I think with the motion going to the left, it seems I am being forced to move my eyes out of frame, rather than into the frame, which might have been stronger IMHO

The composition definitely works well here.

I love this. It fits the challenge. Dynamic. Beautiful model. Love the eccentric placing of the model.

Beautifully done shot. Very little to say - colors are great, exposure and lighting are perfect, the motion really brings attention to her hair, making it perfect for the challenge, and the composition is just beautiful.

I like color on this. Excellent composition. A bit soft on the focus though IMO. I guess its a good thing that she's not wearing an orange top... it would've been overkill! Hope you do well with this... Good luck! 8

Beautiful shot. Might even have scraped into the motion blur challenge :) I probably would have had her wearing a neutral top, maybe a white tee shirt or something (9)

Good photo. Sharp, and I like the compostion.
03/25/2004 07:15:03 PM
what a fantastic portrait. great color and pose. superb job.

your subject, composition, and lighting are perfect. This is one of the most excellent ideas in the challenge. Unfortunately your picture has some technical flaws that will loose you votes :( If I were to have done this shot, I think I would have used a fan the blow the hair around so your subject could stand still and you would get a much much sharper image, but still the same effect with the hair. -8

Beautiful shot. God, I'm jealous.
03/25/2004 10:46:13 AM
great wonderful shot. no doubt about orange being the topic. nicely counterpointed to the violet pullover and clean white background. excellent work.
03/25/2004 09:15:30 AM
Gotta love the Red Heads! Nice use of fast shutter to capture the flying hair! Great lighting too!
03/24/2004 11:27:35 PM
This is a great shot - I'd like to see more versions of this photo, as this one seems to be lacking something. What's great about this photo, though, is the subject's expression, as well as the flashing hair. Great color choice for the sweater, too.
03/24/2004 05:11:19 PM
Nice composition 8
03/24/2004 03:27:55 PM
original.....movement and sense of peace in one shot...well don.

I was hoping someone would do hair! And this one is done so well. Great picture!
03/24/2004 04:10:42 AM
Love it. Wonder how it would look with a light coloured background?
03/24/2004 12:44:58 AM
Like the use of space. Like the hair and the effect you were going for. Well done. Can't get over the hair.
