Good call.

Not what I would consider a portraiture per se, but it's a very nice fashion shot.

Top 5

Excellent composition, the overall softness really shows of that great hat.
01/08/2012 12:29:48 PM
Lovely image,top ten at least.Ribbon ?.
01/07/2012 10:50:32 PM
I like the soft grain in this.
01/07/2012 02:56:02 PM
The eyes really grabbed me and pulled me into this portrait. Great job.
01/06/2012 08:39:31 PM
Stunning and electric. Nicely done.
01/05/2012 10:00:31 AM
The contrast of the eyes and the gorgeous blue in them. this is a great capture. I like how you used the blur to put focus directly on her face.
01/04/2012 04:00:26 PM
Beautiful model, too bad for the fur.
01/04/2012 03:16:05 PM
Very nice hat and very nice skin
01/04/2012 02:59:16 PM
Beautiful eyes and light. The only nit pick is the shadow under her arm. I don't know why but is catches my eye. Still a great portrait.
01/04/2012 08:13:26 AM
Very well lit.

Beautiful image. Those colors work so well together, her eyes are so stunning and that hat! Yes, nice hat! ;)
01/03/2012 09:57:49 PM
Beautiful model. Processing looks really natural. Nice, clean, well done shot. I'm sure you know this one could have easily been butchered to death in post processing and you showed here that you really know what you are doing. Good luck on this one but you won't need it...
01/03/2012 08:21:19 PM
Stunning model......Nice professional portrait. Great pose
01/03/2012 01:17:01 PM

a perfect glamor shot, all aspects quite perfect. I would be surprised at anything less than a ribbon.
01/02/2012 10:50:02 PM
well done on this.. 10
01/02/2012 06:39:07 PM
Love it. Ribbon-worthy.
01/02/2012 12:42:00 PM
Gorgeous portrait.
01/02/2012 11:27:08 AM
I think perhaps the best of challenge, but I have a few more to look at. 9 for now..
01/02/2012 11:11:20 AM
love it, suggestion of nudity and the colour cast of her skin to the blonde hair match the hat so well and her blue eyes great photo :) my only 9 and my pic for the ribbon.
01/02/2012 10:48:59 AM
This is perfectly lit, composed, and exposed. I cannot find a single fault with this photo, well done!
01/02/2012 10:14:07 AM
This is the perfect portrait. Lighting, focus. WOW Spot on.
01/02/2012 09:59:15 AM
Great lighting. lovely model and composition.
01/02/2012 09:41:36 AM
S-T-U-N-N-I-N-G! I'm not voting in this challenge, but I predict a ribbon for this one!
01/02/2012 12:44:37 AM
I was loving it... I still do, but...

I scrolled down to her arms and chest and... she seems cold.

I would like this more with her face being in focus and the rest a bit blurred.

I feel cold.

She's lovely, although I find the image has an overall yellow cast which is not appealing to me.
