Hello judges, the past few rounds you've been commenting that a lot of my photos have been coming off as the same so I wanted to deliver something different this round. In this photo I am representing the color yellow both literally and metaphorically. Sporting a yellow chiffon Stella McCartney dress, I am fully embodying the colour yellow by radiating confidence like the Sun. Even amongst the ruffles of the gown, my personality shines through creating a dynamic photograph that I hope you all enjoy.

Amanda: Now I do appreciate that you're trying to shake things up and not be so pouty and blank, because that's what we want to see.
However, I think this is a little over-the-top. I really hate how your dress covers your eye, and the red mouth is more a focal point than anything else here. With the pink background, the yellow sort of fades away, and you could have asked Maria to make that thing a light yellow if you couldn't do it yourself. That would have taken the overwhelming background out and improved the image a lot. As much as I like that you're taking a risk and changing things up, this is a bit too awkward and as much as I want to like it, I can't bring myself to. Sorry :/

Well... you're free to touch stuff up all you want. That's how Taylor won ANTM5, and several other people have been known to as well. Maria's magazine cover and spread last week were also original submissions.
You just have to know what's in bounds: You're free to recolor stuff, change the lighting, add a hat, or simply do touchups. You are not allowed to insert yourself into another person's body or a false setting (except for magazine covers). If you wish, you can adjust the background and I can re-critique it for you, since it's not a stress week and you didn't know the rules.

Nicki: J-Law, in the recent weeks I haven't been a fan, but I certainly am this week. My only problem with this is that your mouth is prominent, but I think it's a vast improvement on past weeks. The dress is largely original, and yellow. So good job!

BB: I really like it actually Jennifer. I feel this is totally a different side of you. Before this I saw you as sweet and bubbly girl but here, you are sexy, confident and energetic. But I do agree with Nicki. Watch your mouth, in this photo, it looks a little bit hoochie. You don't want to be label as hoochie but sexy.
