Lots of negative space in those comments! But I feel it. I like it.

Thanks folks, I was trying to generate a sense of negative space despite a photographically cluttered scene. It certainly is overwhelming when viewed from out here. Considered in the context of negative space (contrasting elements) she struck me as peacefully and actively embracing the surrounding stimuli over the 5 second exposure. My favorite aspect of this image is the sheltering tree "guiding" her further along despite the lack of a path.

In your face, contrarian negativity. Congrats on the bling and the "ribbon"

I like the details here, the leaning dead tree, the leaf, the way the creek is the negative space. Best brown in a while.

your overexposure/processing turns a cluttered scene into a world of negative space. the blurry figure interacting with this electric negativity fascinates me.

I'm hanging this in my fantasy art gallery

I get no feeling of negative space from this at all. It's too busy and cluttered and the low contrast black & white doesn't help.

No vote. I don't vote on challenges that I enter.

Details: Use the surrounding space of your subject to create the wow of the photograph.

The photo is much too busy to meet any of the above for me.

I don't feel as thought this meets the prompt of negative space.
