Alec, this is perfection on so many levels. Lighting is a tricky thing when DDR is involved. It's beautifully done here. On her fingers, face, cheeks, shoulder, neck and BG.

This is VERY impressive. I not only FAV'd this image but YOU as well!

BIG congrats on your POTD! Well deserved!

Seeing POTD's everyday and they are, for the most part, all really nice shots, this image stands out greatly when comparing the "very good" with the "excellent". There are so many things right about this photo, that whether they were all planned in concept, or some just fell into place, the final result is a beautiful, exemplary photograph that illustrates the marriage of technical know how and the creative process of "concept to composition" in a wonderfully successful result. Congratulations on your POTD and well deserving recognition!

This is the kind of image that makes me want to check out the person's gallery and looking through yours confirms that this is not just one of a kind, but one of many beautiful portraits that speak volumes about your passion and excellence and vision.

Alec, I saw this a couple weeks ago and was mesmerized with the way you lit it, I just didn't get a chance to comment. But now that you grabbed a WELL-deserved First Place medal, no way was I going to stay silent. You produced an outrageous portrait here, it's obvious you know your stuff and I'm glad BP Judges recognized that. Congrats!
