great shot! the expression, composition, lighting all hit. i would like to compare this to the uncropped version, just to see what it looked like with more foreground.

Excellect shot!
Very nice composition. The look in the eye creates a nice conflict with the candy isolated on the right which leave the viewer looking between the two. The reflection also adds some interest. Just a little more light on the fight of the face might have helped, but just maybe. One of my top two for the challenge.

I like the effect of the reflective table. Beautiful picture, probably among my top picks! In fact, this was my favorite after I was finished voting!

Nice job with this picture. I like the feeling of forbidden.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
07/22/2004 02:14:00 PM
Fantastic!! The composition and the B&W processing are excellent. Only I might have cropped a bit taller to include all of the chocolate's reflection.

So easy to make beautiful black and whites. Great picture!!!

Great composition. I think this is my fav with a person inclusion in this challenge, the focus point remains the chocolate.

Great model and great lighting. For the title "Temptation" seems appropriate. Should fininsh high...

A simple subject, an elegant composition. I love the personality show, the anticipation! Lovely b&w very balanced with the face at one side and the chocolate not quite all the way tothe other side. The arms folded on the table create a nice horizontal line connecting them. Maybe just a tad sharper or more contrast? 9

Lovely image, excellently composed. Strong emotional impact - I can really feel the contemplation! Perfect for black and white.
Lighting seems harsh and is it post processing that's blown out the left side of her face, her elbow and finger tips or exposure during taking?

Lovely composition and a clever idea.

To really make this great include the whole reflection of the candy. It seems undone without it. I love his expression and his eyes.

A familiar sight if not feeling - temptation. I like the composition and her (I assume) expression is wonderful. The choice of going black and white is good too as it breaks it down into the chocolate and the look.

Beautiful light, focus and composition. Great expression!! 9 from me.
