Thank you for the comments & critiques. Natural light photography is not my strong side, but I thought I'll give it a try, since I always get hammered on DPC for my harsh contrast flash portraits.

I wish the model's face was a bit more brightly lit, however, the emphasis *is* clearly on the polka-dots. Very nice portrait and meets the challenge beautifully.

I wonder how many users have never heard the song "She wore an itsy-bitsy teeny-weeny yellow polka dot bikini?"

Nice portrait, but her expression is a bit ...confused, making me lose interest pretty quickly. And I don't see no yellow! (No penalty there) 6

Very pretty model and excellent composition. The lighting seems a little dull.

But it's not yellow...! I'm sure this one will do very well.

such a totally technical thing (and it does not count against you) her earring needed to be a round white ball...otherwise a really super sharp well done picture

I think I need an itsy-bitsy, teeny-weeny cold shower now.
