Another shot of Aleksandra the dancer. I'm hopeful this will do well (although I really don't expect it to live up to my Red Challenge success).

Here's a duotone version I considered going with:

' . substr('//images.dpchallenge.com/images_portfolio/55000-59999/57775/120/742354.jpg', strrpos('//images.dpchallenge.com/images_portfolio/55000-59999/57775/120/742354.jpg', '/') + 1) . '

(After Challenge)

Wow - thanks so much to everyone who voted and commented! I would have been thrilled with a top 10 finish in the Master's Free Study - I had no expectations of ribboning!

probably scoring well, good DPC fodder.

Super cool. Love the colors and the figure. Well balanced.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
12/07/2008 04:13:19 PM
Well Bree, your other one was better. Either that or we have a bit of diminishing returns. The magentas don't look right with the clouds. Still, a classic. 7

Fantasy, love it.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
12/05/2008 03:41:53 PM
Good job! Colors, composition and negative space (although it's not entirely negative) is excellent 8
  Photographer found comment helpful.
12/05/2008 11:46:41 AM
Very beautiful, I love the strong graphical element and tones of the sky.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
12/05/2008 10:43:38 AM
Amazing colours and timing. I like the negative space here too.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
12/04/2008 01:12:12 PM
Sublime. Serene. Lovely. Just a sheer delight to view. 8
  Photographer found comment helpful.
12/04/2008 09:10:46 AM
I predict an 8+ score and the Blue for this one! Well done, best of the bunch! A Breeeeeeeeeeee shot? ;)
  Photographer found comment helpful.
12/04/2008 05:26:35 AM
I know this will appeal to the majority of voters here but too me itís a bit too colorful and slightly unnatural. I like the silhouette though.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
12/03/2008 07:26:06 PM
Beautiful & graceful.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
12/03/2008 04:39:34 PM
Beautiful colors!
  Photographer found comment helpful.
12/03/2008 02:22:18 PM
Really beautiful silhouette, but too much sky.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
12/03/2008 02:12:26 PM
Beautiful colors. Feels like there should be an inspirational message at the top.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
12/03/2008 11:37:35 AM
Magical, indeed... :) The use of negative space really works in this image. Kudos!
  Photographer found comment helpful.
12/03/2008 02:10:45 AM
awesome colors
  Photographer found comment helpful.
12/02/2008 11:13:59 PM
No vote on this one as I've seen several of the out takes on the site. Beautiful spread of colors across the frame.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
12/02/2008 02:54:12 PM
If this isnt you then someone out there is copying your style! :)
P.S. What about the new D3x with 25 megapixels? Ouch!
  Photographer found comment helpful.
12/02/2008 01:31:36 PM
Very nice, D-3 at work? Great color.
  Photographer found comment helpful.

I am guessing this is ' . substr('//www.dpchallenge.com/images/user_icon/21_F.gif', strrpos('//www.dpchallenge.com/images/user_icon/21_F.gif', '/') + 1) . ' Breeee123's photo. It's beautiful.

Great comp, and colors, neat idea, 8.
  Photographer found comment helpful.

Nice colors & form... -- 8 --
  Photographer found comment helpful.
12/01/2008 09:21:58 PM
Glorious colours, and a beautiful sense of motion from the siloette. And yet it just does not work - mainly because of the unnatural purple on the clouds, which really gives the editting game away. I believe a landscape crop of the bottom half of the image would have been much more powerful.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
12/01/2008 07:44:55 PM
This has to be Briana. Lovely backdrop!
  Photographer found comment helpful.
12/01/2008 05:26:47 PM
Breeeeee????? I hope so because if it is -- another ribbon for my friend :) If not -- then what a compliment! This is magical. Breathtaking, and only my 2nd 10.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
12/01/2008 01:43:35 PM
Magic image too. Fabulous.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
12/01/2008 12:27:29 PM
amazing colors. the scarfs and dress or whatever it is, adds a really nice touch.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
12/01/2008 11:36:33 AM
Wonderful colours.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
12/01/2008 09:09:03 AM
gorgeous colors ... love the composition also ...
  Photographer found comment helpful.
12/01/2008 05:18:53 AM
So much more than a sky shot - lovely, one of my favourites of this challenge.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
12/01/2008 04:58:50 AM
very well done again, but the large portion of purple kinda distracts. had preferred a tighter crop and a less centered composition.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
12/01/2008 02:29:15 AM
Top 20, if it isn't, I'll be very shocked; this is great!
  Photographer found comment helpful.
12/01/2008 01:25:57 AM
Great colors and silhouette. Very nice.
