I really like this image. It didn't strike me as a great image as I was taking it, but once I uploaded it I fell in love. I messed with contrast, and did a little dodge and burning but no major editing. Its never before been seen, but at the same time I feel like it might not be quite original and out of the box for this challenges. I'm really hoping for above a 5.5.

After tweaking it a bit I've come up with another rendition of the picture that I think would have scored better ' . substr('//images.dpchallenge.com/images_portfolio/100000-104999/103818/120/806563.jpg', strrpos('//images.dpchallenge.com/images_portfolio/100000-104999/103818/120/806563.jpg', '/') + 1) . '

Nope, haven't seen this one before. Closest I found was this -- ' . substr('//images.dpchallenge.com/images_challenge/0-999/887/120/Copyrighted_Image_Reuse_Prohibited_694701.jpg', strrpos('//images.dpchallenge.com/images_challenge/0-999/887/120/Copyrighted_Image_Reuse_Prohibited_694701.jpg', '/') + 1) . ', and it's very different.

Nice lighting -- interesting shot!

I found plenty of hay but not any of anyone laying against it. That had to be uncomfortable though she makes it look relaxing.

comment only.

I'm not voting as to me the challenge title and description leave little room for a shot to truly meet the challenge. I do like this, nice lush greens and the model helps turn an ordinary image into one with more substance and whilst I can't actually see her face I can see has a beaming smile (maybe laughing at your wacky idea?). Nice shot and good luck.

Red contrasts well and fits your theme.

The red pops a bit too much, being the brightest thing in the image... taking the eye away from the face and the fields, I think. I like the whole field scene though. (not voting)

I like the image, the red shirt is perfect in this setting.

Beautiful use of color to make this shot sing.

Good colours, light and compositon.
Dont think that it something really original, considering other entries. But this is a nice shot

Hmm... with the title, I'd imagine this to be a little less serene and a little more gritty. Perhaps if she was fastened to the hay in some way...

Is she smiling? laughing? Odd sense of relaxation based on the title.
