Thanks so much for all the nice comments, I am extra happy with this ribbon because I really liked this image. Saw the hat the day of the challenge and had to figure out how to use it and loved the outcome. The lighting was by choice I love the look and went with it and am so glad it was well recieved.
Thanks again, Sue

Big congrats on your ribbon. I knew this would ribbon. Keep up the good work.

IMHO you deserved the blue with this one.
I can´t believe your final score was 7-
Congrats for an amazing entry, and keep up the excellent work!!

Go Sue! You have the touch!
Also, thank you for your thoughtful comment during the challenge.
The mystery about wanting to see beneath the shadow of that hat makes this shot a grabber.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
07/14/2008 01:21:21 AM
This was my favorite of the challenge (sorry Irene)! The range is wonderful and I love the hint of her right eye glinting under their, that is when you finally tear your eyes away from those lips and see it.

Very nice image, bright red lipstick to the pale skin is very nice, great use of shadow.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
07/09/2008 11:38:30 AM
I like the lips on this one but the overly blurred skin and over-blown area on the left are a bit too distracting. Still it is a high impact shot - well done.
  Photographer found comment helpful.

This is one of the last few I've voted on -- and it is in my opinion head and shoulders over the rest. My pick for the blue ribbon!
  Photographer found comment helpful.
07/08/2008 07:28:43 AM
I really like the colors here. The texture of the hat is outstanding. You have to be careful about the light being blown out. I can see the light blowing out on her right cheek to her neck, maybe dialing it down 1 stop would do the trick. I hope this helps. Overall, good photo!
  Photographer found comment helpful.
07/07/2008 04:47:59 PM
The shade from the hat over the eyes is ace and the pattern on the hat complements the overall composition. Not sure her left shoulder adds much, but adding to my favourites and giving it 9 all the same.

Fabulous composition & lighting. Love it!
