I am really sorry this was dq'ed. It's a shot you should be very proud of...I am sure you are...your model is gorgeous and has an angelic face and expression here. You are SO good at these...you should start a greeting card series...have you thought of this?

I love the idea and the serenity on her face. I can see the clone jobs beneath her and gather the element was quite major for this to be DQ'ed. Damn shame as this is such a beauty.

only thing is I wish her knee weren't blocking her arm, and there is a fuzzy spot in the grass on the lefthand side... other than that, what does your original look like? (why the DQ?)

it is like the end of a beautiful story as the angel is being helped back to heaven.I am almost afraid to give it a 10 but I must because that is what it deserves.

A very nice shot, she seems very much at peace and at one with the nature around her. Unfortunately for ME, the viewer, the photo demands too much interest in this photo, from the girl, the sky, the lighting, the grass and weeds, the ground. There is just TOO much here to look at for it to really 'blend' and give me the feeling of it being a serene photo. Great photo, in other circumstances.

Strong shot. Could use a little more light on the subject. Extra point for achieving the illusion.

It took me a little while to see her legs crossed. Maybe I need to calibrate this monitor. It is a delicate image which stopped me in my voting to look for a while. The upper part is of a religious nature - yet the bottom part is ordinary in its weedy lot appearance. That is a strange juxtaposition. Yet, why should weeds not be included in religion, I ask myself! 7.

Cool idea. How'd you do that??? (lighting is a bit off for me though)

Great idea, not sure if I'm right but on my screen I am sure I can see some editing 'marks' on the lower left handside? I might have been tempted to crop a little of the grey in the F/G out too (but sometimes I can be too picky!). 7

There is a lot of christianity in this image, and Zen is the intuitive thought of the photographer,IMO this is a top shelf image...

this is amazing...how did you do this? My only neg would be the weedy background which is a little distracting, other than that, awesome...love the backlight...I wonder how this would be with a tiny,weeny bit of fill in flash

okay..i'm impressed 10+....i dunno bout the withered looking background...but setup is awesome....soft light layer on crossed legs would be nice also...

i think you have a very interesting shot...the only thing that bugs me just slightly about this shot is she is too centered...if she was a little bit more off centered i would just love it! but i still give this shot a 8
