Hello from the Critique club

A pleasing image that meets the challenge.

You have distinguished the composite nature of your image for the challenge by quite clearly photographing the flowers in a distinctly different light. They are also very much sharper than the rest of the image which again makes them stand out and therefore self-evident for the purpose of the challenge. Whilst your original image is three lovely ladies, a very pleasing subject, it would be so much more appealing if we could see their eyes and they had a hint of a smile. As it is they don't look very happy or engaged with the moment, indeed they look as though they feel uncomfortable and this somewhat detracts from the effectiveness of it. Having said all that I like the hat and their hair, especially the one in the middle but I think her forehead could benefit from a little dodging just to reduce its brightness a bit.

I would say you have achieved your goal of a surreal image especially given their expressions as though to say well whats wrong with drinking flowers! Well done and thanks for your submission.
