I have NO idea how my daughter manages to look pretty and still have her face falling off! LOL!

I caught her with her sunglasses and swim suit on... going out to the pool and asked her to look surprised for a moment that she was falling to pieces. This is what I got.

She did giggle in between shots... but then... she gave me this again and again for five minutes. I am so blessed with a talented daughter.

She's amazing.

Every time I glance at this... I see, just for a millisecond, my daughter "signing". She is very good at sign language... and very expressive.

I love that.

This is charming! I didn't get a chance to view this challenge. This fits perfectly! Like puzzle pieces... (groan....) Nice!

Wow this is neat. Cool idea, but I am not sure why the missing pieces are different shades of black, as they would all be a single background color. Lower right quarter has some smudging that detracts from the overall effect.

The idea was ok, but the editing is not at same level.

I have to hand it to you- the detail work is phenomenal; the shadows of the pieces on the shirt really sell the reality of the shot. A bit oversold on the expression? -maybe- but its still a powerful entry.

Good idea! Love her pose and the falling pieces of the puzzle but a little let down by the blank spots left behind....they're too flat and one dimensional and don't match the rest of the photo. I hate to be critical because I couldn't come close to PP like this. But the rest of it is soooooo good (you even have shadows from the falling puzzle pieces, wow!).

This was a good idea, and you photographed the model perfectly. I only wish the missing puzzle pieces followed the shape of her face instead of lying flat. Don't ask me how you would have done it though.
