This is me in a dress I made myself. I was considering doing a self portrait of myself in some kind of sewing situation but then I got a job and had no time. Picture taken 10 minutes before sunset the night the pic was due.... quick but it's alright too

great shot- the only thing that is semi- distracting is the slack fabric between your shoulder blades - I like it alot though!

Good idea. This photo has potential. The composition is good (off-centered) and it was a deliberate colour choice of your dress. The green vs. pink works good. Only thing I don't like here is the lighting. It's a bit flat and bland. Maybe a shot at a different time, like during sunset, could have helped. Still an 8.

Does the title mean that someone really doesn't want to cut the grass? Looks a little long.

Putting yourself off center makes it seem like this scene goes on and on. Perhaps it does. I do like how this shot says things about yourself, even though we can't see your face.

classic, on flowers in the hair would have been better

Reminds me of that Wyeth painting (wasn't that Wyeth?) with the woman in the field and the house in the distance. I think it would really add something to be able to see the horizon.

the composition is good, but it's just not the right contest IMO.
06/19/2003 01:54:45 AM
This is a really nice shot but I wish I could see either more of you or maybe more of what you are looking at.

Hi There,
I just came back from a walk in the park. =o) This in a nice serene image. Great texture. I feel almost drawn in with the desire to walk around and have a look at your face. Great Colout. I like the off center subject. Very appealing and so is the Photo. =o)

Nice composition and tones.

This is nice. I like the idea that you are turned away from the camera like this. The pink of your dress stands out nicely against the grass (of which I can see almost every distinct blade).

Cool cool cool shot. It looks natural - I like that the green hasn't been oversaturated in PS ... the pink is a great contrast. One of my favorites in the comp.
