The combination of her natural beauty, the colors,and the weathered surroundings is very striking. Stunning image.

the thing I love about this shot besides all the great color is the smirk that is just about to crack into a smile. Congrats on your top 20 finish.

Nice shot. The composition and contrast in colours is great. Nice lighting on your model's face. If anything I think the pink dress looks slightly over exposed.

Didn't see this one during voting which is a real shame. Stunning shot. Love the blue-greens of the steps and all the contrasts going on.

Nice capture. Love the contrast of her pretty spring dress to the shabby stoop. Also love the position of her hands. Good luck in the challenge!

I love how you've processed (some might say over processed) the colors here to create a vibrant portrait. 8

A beautiful woman. This is an image of contrasts - with the dress, the headwear, and the decaying yet beautiful turquoise stairs. Great work.

This is such a good photo. The girl is lovely and so demure. The colors and textures are wonderful. 10 and favorite.

There's an odd sensation of her being slightly disconnected from her environment; like she's floating, almost. I think the location - the shapes given to this image by the stairs and so on, might have been handled slightly better, making them a stronger contributor to the composition rather than simply a background, which is how they seem here.

great colour and portrait of a beautiful woman

The colors are lively, BG a perfect setting for your graceful model. I like the way everything is not quite straight. Reminds me of the works of Paul Gaugin.

WOW - what a stunner. It jumps off of the page. Her beauty and your ability to capture it is wonderful. Love the fuschia and the turquoise contrast with her rich warm skin tones. 10

Hmm... I am not sure if this is GSAL or Goodman(sorry if this is neither :) , but I really love this picture. The colors are so beautiful and the textures have been brought out wonderfully. There is ALOT of wonderful photos here on DPC but this is my FAVORITE of the entire site thus far. If I could give this higher then a 10 I would.... I really really really hope this ribbons! 10 -Jamie
