Last minute entry. Made of 3 different shots. The model is actually not blowing on this one. The one where she was blowing was looking less natural (!?).
Very little post-processing other than combining the elements from 3 different shots.

This is a stunning example of low key. I agree with the critique below that the hair in front of the face is a little distracting. It is such a clean image that anything out of place is very noticible - gave it an 8 during the challenge.

Hi from the Critique Club

First glance at this photo and I love it. I like its gentle low key feel and its effortless floating appearance. It evokes a feeling of innocence and romance.
I voted this shot a 6 during the challenge and I will try to explain my thinking in that score
I think the shot is very well composed as it the crop and the idea is extremely pleasing
For me it is the lighting which is giving a rather distracting glow along the nose and upper lip and the last few strands of hair just above the nose in particular. (I realise that commenterís are praising the lighting so this is my opinion only)
This looks back lit so moving the light source is not an alternative but I think that a reflector at some distance in front of the face so it is very subtle would help soften the glow and help it float into the feel of this shot.
I also feel that the blown seeds in the air are too bright and distract from the overall sense of the shot.

I hope you have found my thoughts helpful. Please feel free to email me if you have any questions
Good luck in future challenges.
Rose

Good stop motion on the blowing particles. I like your use of lighting in this one.

Beautiful low key. The movement of the dandelion seeds is lovely. I like the light on her eyelid and outline of her profile. Wonderful. One of my favs of the challenge.
