    Just realised that this competition has ended... I think!! I'm in France, so the times are all mixed up. Some great entries, I'll be back in a few hours with the results!

    Nice shot, nice attention grabbing eyes. I like the framing, although would have preferred a less shallow depth of field so that both eyes were sharp.

    Fireman32

    Nice pose, model and idea. Lighting is nice and even, it looks maybe a little flat to me though? It could just be me

    pmxperience

    Great first attempt at a photoshoot like this! The lighting is really nice, is it natural? It looks very controlled...

    twitch31

    Love this shot. the sun looks awesome, and the sense of depth is great.

    ijohn.8.80

    The bokeh is quite nice, but the subject is very soft focused and a bit boring for me.

    acearchie

    Nice shot, nice light. Could have done with a reflector or something to get her eyes to shine a bit more though, some might say the background isn’t very well thought out, but I think it works. I just think it would be greatly improved with some fill light on her face.

    dmax35

    Nice light and colours, but the subject is lacking enough interest for my tastes.

    Axisofbeagles

    Again, I like the light and the colours, but I think the composition lacks interest... for me anyway!

    Caliber26

    Lovely sky, nice colours great shot!

    imac wannabe

    Nice shot, would have been ideal for last weeks contest!

    Macry
    Nice sky and colour not much in the way of subject matter though..

    genshi

    Lovely photo, and one of the only ones really that has filled the ‘creative’ part of the brief!

    jjk454ss

    Im not sure what you’re getting at here... maybe if you had some fill light on the subject and brightened the (what i presume is) red strip on the tower, made the snow whiter.. alternatively you could have metered for the sky more perhaps and silhouetted the tower?

    fullstop102

    Nice colours, nice details

    longsticks

    love the soft sun, and soft background in general. really nice photograph.

    Badrottie

    A nice photo, but a little uneventful for me.

    em5photog

    Nice colours and nice perspective

    milbournosphere

    Nice capture. looks like it should be in mexico or somewhere, maybe because of the colouring.

    deep diver

    Also a nice photo, but a bit uneventful

    Keleko

    Really interesting capture... you are refining your editing style nicely since i first started to see your photos, and although it might be a little too much for some... i like the detail and the arty aspect of it.

    DirtySocks85
    Great background! Nice subject. I might have preferred to see the little fella more on the left of the frame to maybe get a peak of what he is looking at, or at least more of a guess...


    Some nice photos in there for sure, although most of them seemed to ‘capture’ the interesting light, rather than creatively use it.

    3rd pmxperience (as long as you promise me that it’s natural light!)

    Wow, thanks very much cupcakes2000, I'm flattered as I thought the quality was high this week.

    I've started a new weekly contest thread, looking forward to seeing some great entries :)
