We'll start with the model, who has what I see as a 50's sort of pose. And the mostly muted colors feel retro. But ... the Aquabot has more color than anything else in the scene. Not really sure what I think of that, since it's neither retro nor the most interesting thing in the image. Also (and I know this may be picky to notice) the hose looks pretty well in focus as does the fence to its left, but the fence on the right is totally blurred out and the building isn't sharp where I expect it to be to match the hose. My eye keeps trying to make sense of the DOF and not being able to. Maybe a Lensbaby kind of thing but I don't remember noticing that disparity before.

This sort of comes off but not quite in my opinion. Maybe nearer to the model ?

The processing color is perfect for this image.

Yes. Great job on this.
I really like the PP as well.

I like the setup, and the way the legs make a compositional triangle.
But that item she is sitting on seems so out of place. Replace that object, and I think I would give this a point higher.
