  #117 Square Photo
Entry 5 of 28
   
 
Frailty, thy name is woman       ©2012 Jade O.
Panasonic DMC-FZ30       5th place, 124 points
1/125s, f5, ISO 80, 35mm, Normal Program, Pattern, flash
 
Post-Processing: Layers, of course, cut, selective burn, & resize.       Extra Info: Title is line from Shakespeare's Hamlet (I, ii, 146)

Perhaps more apropos, a modified quote from, As You Like It...
"All the world's a stage,
And all the men and women merely players:
They have their exits and their entrances;
And one woman in her time plays many parts,..."

BTW a prize if you guess, Who is the woman behind the mast? (Maybe that would have been a better title...?)

    Thank you all for your votes and especially your comments. I thought this a little edgy so I am pleased to see it ranks so well. Alas, I did mean mask, not mast.

    Mast or mask - I already had to correct one spelling mistake from Jade in this challenge so it just is not possible that there would be two in one challenge. Therefore it must be 'mast' and that is why I chose Nefertiti.

    Congratulations on another fine finish, Jade! This is an interesting image, and I am sure we are all waiting for the name of the woman behind the mask.

    I wanted this much higher. Like #1. Congratulations on a good finish anyway.

    Well done Jade - no idea who is behind the mask - you are going to tell us, I hope

    number one from me. very few entries seem to benefit from 'square' frame, but this one works well for me... also it's a great composition. nice work.

    Wow!, This is quite a production. Seems spooky and brooding. I can not critique it photographically, for it is far more intricate than a photo.

    I find my eye is unable to settle in this composition until it hits the large striped nose. I don't get a sense of frailty but perhaps I take the wrong meaning. The woman behind the mast is obviously Nefertiti sailing into obscurity on one of her ships :-)

    A beautiful and complex representation. The use of space is outstanding.

    I also love Macbeth Act 5 Scene 5 - seems even more apropos these days.

I really like what you've accomplished by layering the photo - fantastic idea. I do find the nose bottom left, distracts a bit from the whole.

    Clever guess, but only close. I don't have blonde hair!
