Your portrait work is unbelievable. You have a true gift of composition and use of light and filter. Man, this is gorgeous. The choice of deep lavender color against her darker skin tones is a lovely compliment. Superb!!!

This leapt off the screen at me the moment I saw its thumbnail, and it remains my favourite by far of this competition. This is a superb figure study, regardless of theme. If you make prints available for purchase, put me down as a customer.

Congrats!! Fabulous shot! I would have given this a 10 but unfortunately didn't have time to vote this week. Well done, you did extremely well even without another 10 :D Congrats again!

Thank you for the comments and nice scores. She is not a model...but a client. She was fun to work with and loves the camera! I cant wait to finally finish processing all of her images. The purple fabric she just happened to bring along...i went with it. ;)

beautiful! i love the purple wrap...but with this being a purple challenge, i would have liked to have seen more purple in the background. I like it like this too because she stands out from the background.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
07/10/2004 02:51:28 AM
I really like it, however, I think I would have liked it more if there was a little more detail in the shadows on her neck. Great job though. 8

Nice
  Photographer found comment helpful.

Exceptional model in dynamic lighting. I'm a little unhappy about the positioning of the hands behind her back. Your choice of background could not be better.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
07/08/2004 09:25:09 PM
nice work here.....great model.....I like the pose, the lighting, and the addition of purple....a 10 from me!
  Photographer found comment helpful.
07/08/2004 10:46:54 AM
great colors, nicely composed, a slightly lighter background would help; her pose, with the hands hidden behind her back, carries a suggestion of submissiveness which detracts from the overall appeal of an otherwise superb photo
  Photographer found comment helpful.
07/08/2004 02:26:27 AM
Nice lighting. Nice symmetry in that her knees match her shoulders, and some other parts ;). Gode pose, image doesn't shout purple at me.

nice lighting, sophisticated shot. 9

This is a beautiful photo... the lighting is perfect, in my opinion. The model looks so contemplative and/or hopeful. Brings about emotions. I think this is in the top 3!

Photos like this make me want to plunk down my 25 bucks. This portrait is exquisite.

Stunning portrait.. The light is excellent, the shadows add another dimension and just a bit of mystery. nicely done. 9

Heather is a beautiful woman and her purple attire shows off her beauty well. I like this take on the idea of purple. I gave this one a 9,

The lighting on this image is just beautiful. But her expression doesn't match the pose.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
07/06/2004 10:26:27 AM
I like the angle of the lighting in this shot. The choice of background color against the pale purple works well. Lovely model.
  Photographer found comment helpful.

Beautifull lightning. You have really brought out her wonderfull skin colou and the structure of the skin. The glitter in the fabric matches her so well. This photo is radiant.
