woo hoo! thanks everyone - I haven't had a ribbon here since 2005, so the long drought is over. (or the next one is about to begin...)
I can't believe I didn't notice the light over her shoulder or the hot pixel in the upper right. I pour over these images always and still miss things like that. They appear very faint on my laptop, but I see what everyone mentioned.

I think this is an image that could also be a tough one to beat. Such a beautiful photo.

A little hot up top but I love the look. Matching feathers and hair, nice shadows and feel.

Stunning portrait. Marvelous lighting. When she's done with it, can I have that vest?

Well done with the colour balance, bummer about the flare. Points for that outfit ;)

Terrific lighting and color -- right down to the blue eyebrows. Funky and dramatic and I would say blue hair is definitely a defining feature.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
11/25/2011 06:04:07 AM
Yeah right, that defines her. I bet no one knows her by name only by hair. super picture great processing.

lovely photo and model.. light is a tiny bit harsh on her nose and forehead but i still like it..
  Photographer found comment helpful.
11/24/2011 05:21:17 PM
this is really nice, but i would watch out for wordrobe issues. her eyelash is coming off. i suppose you cant do anything about it now, but i find that detail distracting... I think you have dust on your sensor too... you might want to clean that asap.

Anywas, nice lighting, great colors! good luck :)

Great picture and nice subject, odd stuff going on with the top background is distracting, very nice lighting though.

Good job!. very well worked.

Very competent lighting, I like the choice to leave the neck in shadow.
  Photographer found comment helpful.

Highlights are a bit too bright on the nose and forehead but I still like this shot. Would look good in a model's portfolio; fantastic outfit, all the colours compliment each other and the focus is great. Background is a little noisy, I'd have cloned out the white speck in the top left corner and maybe burned the right side a bit to help mask that shape (lens flare?)

I love the bird look

Near the top for me.

Wow!

Colorful and captivating. I like it! The shadow at the neck makes her head look a bit like it's floating though.
