This image stood out amongst all the thumbs the first time I looked at the entries. I seriously expected this image to be in the top 10...awesome job. Disappointed by the score...but I expect that from the voters these days....!

I love the concept of this shot and I like the lighting design. Perhaps just a tad too bright on the faces?

I am not really seeing the connection between the title and the shot I am afraid.

That aside I like the setup especially the lighting.

nicely done, you have captured an time frame nicely, it feels as if I am viewing a photo from the 20's

A very post modern image - different and unigue even though it follows the singular monotone/color meme - a solid image that is crisp, sharp and properly framed and composed - a technical success in every way. From an artistic standpoint, it has significant impact being richly colored with excellant detail. This image would have worked as a black and white as well. A perfect demonstration of the power of properly controlled light and focus. Well done.

Uhm, I hope I'm not offending anyone here, but honestly I think the photograph would have had more impact if
a) It was more saturated
b) The models were a bit more attractive.

The lit highlights on the models is also a bit blown.

However, I like the fact that it makes you wonder about what the story behind this is. 6.
