Greetings from the Critique Club!

Lovely ethereal feel to this shot, I definitely had it pegged for top 10 which is where I am glad to see it finished (gave you a 7 in voting). You look more like you are floating than levitating, certainly no feel of a jump to it. The relaxed hands, serene face and billowing dress add to the dreaminess. Bet this took a fair amount of jumps to do.

Now nitpick time...if only you had been about 2 feet over to your left you probably would have been in the top 5! Yes, the edge of the roof growing out of your head and the drainpipe is the only thing that kills the shot for me. It may have given you a bit more space to gaze into. I'm not a huge fan of this sort of pp but here it does help to enhance the shot and not overwhelm it.

Overall a lovely shot, just watch out for the edges of roofs and drainpipes in the future :-)

Feel free to PM me

Susan

Comfortable in her witchcraft.

I love all of this except that house poking her in the head. *sigh*

Love the dreaminess of it all... And the casualness of her "levitation".

I really think you've done a great job with the leap and capturing that, and I love the processing. The lines of the roof behind your head keep this out of my top 3. (I'm assuming this is a self-portrait, Sophia?) I've given you 8, and that means I consider it to be at least top 10 in this challenge.

Love the softness here. Works very well with the colors and light.

I love the soft edges, pose and tree........the roof line and drain pipe look like they are impaling your head....it's one of those things you might overlook that is glaring in other people's faces....(unless you left it there on purpose??)... especially when you have spent so much time processing the other parts of the picture to get the mood you'd like. PICK PICK PICK>>>>>>>>> I've starting to make suggestions which people may hate so I say what other's do...IMHO........to start a critique....rather than to say one word.....like "distracting" or some such sting.....I hope, when I start doing this people understand that I am not being negative...only lending a different point of view...literally.... so assuming you either had someone else take the shot or set up a tripod....you may have wanted to try to get a shot of her (you?) closer to the tree and farther down towards the center.......ug. I should stop. I just think this has potential. What do you think?

The standout image for me, I feel it is the only one that captures the complete essence of Natsumi's work. Great colour palatte and soft processing. Got to be the blue!

I love the softness of this. Almost looks like ' . substr('//www.dpchallenge.com/images/user_icon/21_F.gif', strrpos('//www.dpchallenge.com/images/user_icon/21_F.gif', '/') + 1) . ' ScooterMcNutty in the shot

Love the processing in this photo. The capture is great... it looks like she is floating through the air. Nice lighting as well. Beautifully executed!

Nice lighting and composition, but I'm not a fan of the color tones. Looks like some sort of HDR coloring was used? I don't think the effect helps the image.
