But enough from me, let's hear from you!

Beautiful portrait. The natural (I assume) lighting really is gorgeous. I might change the central composition a bit, but otherwise everything is perfect.

Wow, I liked it in the first challenge too. Didn't know you could do that.

Great little study.

One of my ribbon picks this challenge - just a great expression and your use of light is right on the money. Going in my favorites as well.

Gorgeous. If an oil painting, it would certainly be hanging in a museum. Perhaps it will as a photo also. A 10.

simply great image. The light concentrates perfectly on her face.

A classoc study and superior effect with b/w

First class image..the lighting is superb..my only reservation is the centre composition. When I blot out the lefthand side of the image (from the edge of the hair back) leaving the child looking into dark negative space it adds impact (for me). I stress that this is only personal preference and I am no expert in portraiture..but I do know that this image will finish with a high placing as it is an excellent piece of work

Very sweet portrait. I like the lighting very much. You can picture the window just in front of her eyes as she looks out and dreams. Very nice.

Very sweet.
07/01/2004 02:36:10 PM
Very sweet! Excellent lighting to set the mood, great catchlight in the eyes. The b&w treatment really contributes to the feeling of the shot and the composition is spot on!

I love this... such a dreamy look... 10
07/01/2004 07:38:07 AM
Would have liked to see a bit more of her face, otherwise nice mood
07/01/2004 03:06:32 AM
Superbe picture, good luckto you I hope it does well. - 10 + fav

Really, really beautiful. If the background was more even (black all the way around) I think this would have been a 10, but it's still really great. 8 for now, and I might come back and rate it higher.

Good luck!
