No, I don't think I will be my average score with this image for the knock out challenge.

Post Challenge:

Well, it did go over my average score...so I thank the voters for that.

I did crop out the tree's, but I thought the image lost some of the perspective and magic. I liked it MUCH better with the tree line in the image.

6th is great!!

I don't think anywhere in Texas we could find grass that lush and pretty right now. This is just plain breathtaking!

the crop was perfect, this works so well, imho, because of the detail and tones of green, with the purple and dabs of yellow. a faerie canopy dream.

Congrats on a great finish!


Thanks for the kind comment!

Cropping out the treeswould have made this much better IMO.

A fairy tale feeling to this image. Blocking out the trees with my hand seems to produce a stronger image.

9/10 here, this has a great fantasy feel to it!
If he doesn't think of it already, i'd recommend this to hang in the Posthumous Fantasy Art Gallery, it's hanging in my Favorites gallery :)

Really nice image and idea, but I would have preferred to see it cropped at the base of the treeline, so you only see her 'floating' in the grass.

This is awesome!! Beautiful colors and composition. Really looks like a fairy princess is laying on a ceiling of grass. 9

Just lovely.

What I love most about this one is the magical mood invoked in this composition. It has a dreamy Maxfield Parrish feel to it - the dandelions look like bubbles in a sky of plush grass greens. The girl looks like she is floating in her magical daydream.

I like this a lot. Especially the upper 2/3 of it. Maybe you'd lose a bit of the upside down feel if the trees weren't included, but I think I'd like it better without them. This has the feel of a dream.

I really like the feel of this but I think it would be even stronger if you cropped it before the trees so it was all grass. Still a 9 from me though.

Lovely.

Magical. A tiny bit of brightness on the skirt would have perked this up a bit for me.

Oh. Lovely.
