i wasnt going to enter this challenge coz i'm not that into flower pics ..
but one day i went for a walk and this image came into my mind .. slightly different but the general idea was the same .
i got elle to pose for me against a black backdrop and processed it for the challenge ..

i was hoping the voters wouldnt mark me down on the size of the flowers coz to me they had impact and meaning ..
i entered it coz i really love the way elle looks and the general feel of the image ..

Roz, this is beautiful! I like what MsAmbrosia said about it making a beautiful wedding shot. I've had weddings on my mind a bit lately, so that's almost exactly what I was thinking -- how much a bride would love this picture if it was part of her wedding album. Elle is so beautiful, and this has such a soft dreamy look, without being high key. I think you did an excellent job, and I'm disappointed that it didn't get a better score.

I'm not sure the emphasis is on the flowers, but I sure like this shot. Lighting and color are spot on. Beautiful.

The flowers don't seem to be the subject to me. Also, the woman's lipstick seems fake. 4.

Pretty, but her face looks too smooth and unnatural, like you used too much noise reduction.
