Great setup and pp. I like the unusual perspective and setting!
08/18/2008 05:31:52 AM
How creative and surreal.
I do agree with the voters that the branches are a bit distracting.
Congrats on top 5!

my pick for second place, very creative and nicely balanced shot. 9
08/14/2008 08:59:29 PM
wow, creative take on the occupation, 9
08/13/2008 03:18:35 PM
love the clarity presented here
08/13/2008 01:05:28 PM
Wow. What a strange and unique picture. I love this.
08/13/2008 06:56:14 AM
The branch aren't too good on the front, the background is amazing. Nice
08/13/2008 12:54:33 AM
Wonderful lighting. The background colors look unreal but work so well for this image. The centered composition looks perfect for this shot and overall a great take 9
08/12/2008 03:56:43 PM
Very creative! Oh, and if this is you, all I can say is.....beautiful!!
08/12/2008 01:28:56 PM
I really like the concept. Unfortunately the models expression isn't a happy one. The sky is super tho!
08/12/2008 09:48:07 AM
yes 7
08/12/2008 01:53:57 AM
good shirt choice, matches the sky nicely. the yellow in the flower looks good too, it just pops
08/12/2008 12:14:55 AM
I really like this but find the branches a bit distracting.
08/11/2008 09:36:20 PM
shut win this 10++ ;-)
08/11/2008 06:58:12 PM
Cool shot with great colors. Back to bump you up to 9.
08/11/2008 01:40:06 PM
one of the best in show, maybe a bit too dark in the uppper left
08/11/2008 01:16:47 PM
great light on the model. Nice finiish with the twigs on the tracks 8
08/11/2008 10:28:54 AM
Beautiful shot with the background and all (the model, too), but she chose a rather surprising location to do her "work". Or is this picture supposed to tell a very sad story?
08/11/2008 10:14:44 AM
Amazing color and overall photograph. (not voting)
08/11/2008 09:36:01 AM
very unusual setup, but also very compelling and atmospheric, eerie. 9
08/11/2008 08:29:11 AM
Superb photo.
Maybe a closer crop to het rid of the dark top left would improve this.
08/11/2008 08:14:17 AM
incredible good image - i think this could easily ribbon
08/11/2008 07:42:18 AM
Cool and arty approach
08/11/2008 05:12:16 AM
Nice, original; just a bit too dark on the left-upper corner (7)
08/11/2008 03:59:07 AM
I think those branches, to me anyway, are a distraction. Love everything else though: 9
08/11/2008 02:07:38 AM
E X C E L L E N T......... Bumping to a '10'
08/11/2008 12:51:59 AM
Hmm. I think I'd like it better as an image without the branches, which are just one element too many in an otherwise interesting story that leaves me wanting to know more. Why is she sitting on railroad tracks? Why did she choose to do "love me, love me not" in that spot? What does the storm represent?

For this challenge, though, it seems an odd combination, and florists generally don't spend their time pulling flowers apart.

Interesting choice of locale for this shot. Illustrates the occupation, but not in the normal environment.
08/11/2008 12:05:12 AM
Awesome awesome pic if I could vote it would be a 10. I love the sky and the way you pop out of the pic and the surrealism of it all!
