Just wonderful. I love the effect of the subject in middle of all those flowers.

The background is a little distracting as well as the flower stem in front of her hand. Nice shot though.

I like the overall effect here, but the subject doesn't look very serene - she looks either deep in thought, uncomfortable, or a tad grouchy. The setting, though, is just beautiful, and the girl is lovely. Lighting is nice, and the contrast seems to be right where it belongs; overall, the scene has a feeling of serenity even if that's not what I'm getting from the subject's expression.

Well executed. You captured just at the right moment.

Try cropping out the top of the photograph to eliminate the house and it bring more of the focus to your subject. Very nice photo

Lovely colours, dof and focus on this shot

Very nice...I think I would like it better without the house in the background. 8

Cropping off the top 1/5 would really help.

I would have cropped some off of the top of the shot to help the composition and to take out some distracting details. Nice portrait. 8.

Beautiful shot I would crop it a little tighter at the top of the photo, the house in the background adds nothing.

I like the simplicity and expression...very natural 9

This is awesome!

Good DOF, But I would have gone with a tighter crop to minimize the house in the background

Crop out the top 15% - to avoid the distraction of the house? Otherwise an attractive portrait.
