Excellent shot. Only criticism is that I don't like the green (distracting). Nonetheless a great job. Good Luck

This would have been even better with more space between the girl and the plants, and a lower perspective. You really got something going on here, I like it. :-) 7

i sense what you wanted to do here, but something leaves this feeling a bit strange. not really able to put my finger on it, though.

I would have zoomed on your subject more.

good use of negative space, tho i cant really feel anything from all this. she looked more like she was walking along the beach than Lost (image title), but then again, that's not all that important. Maybe a tighter crop would be my preference. Gotta say i like the details on the main subject tho!

Nice a simple, I would have liked to see it without the 2 plants they distract from the girl. Great composition.

Good use of selective color, and with the triangle formed by those objects.

Not sure what sort of processing you did with this but the girl looks to be floating. I love the textures in the sand but I am not fond of the girl

Great eye to see this... I might have named it "Dancing with partners" though, looks like she is dancing with the two bushes

This is so simple and yet so elegant and beautiful. I love the minimalist look to it -- and that perfect splash of blue from her dress. Excellent!

attack of the little bushes!
01/12/2007 06:11:03 PM
This would be better if the girl was looking towards the camera.

The size, colour and placement of your subject on that huge amount of sand looks really good. I didn't like the 2 other things there at first but after a while I think they give a bit a balance to the shot. Overall it's great shot.

Best: Scenery..are those little bushes?
Worst: Just a little bland...needs more shadows in the sand..

Wonderful use of minimalism. The texture of the sand as well as the two patches of grass really add to the shot. NICE!!! I like the square crop too.
