You might recognize her from some of my other photographs. She enjoys being photographed as much as I do photographing. A Southern California November afternoon: what a gorgeous day!

Rotated, cropped, curves for contrast, slight boost in saturation, although the sun was setting already so the color was warm, darkened the upper half to bring emphasis to the flower, color balance layer to punch up the greens, finally a little burning in the flower.

Nice shot, interesting idea, just a brick wall seems a little distracting, blue sky maybe.

Composition is ok. Overall I think it is a little dark. The shadow on her are is distracting. IMO focus should be on the flower closest to the bottom of the frame and draw you in to the photo.

Great capture. Your decision to shoot vertically really adds to the photo and the composition leads the eyes throughout the shot. Nice lighting and DOF...... 8

This is a very nice picture, I really like it, but I think competition is tough - good luck!

very nice point of view.... makes the shot original. the only thing that takes away from the shot is the bit of a shadow on, lets see... eh, the right arm of the subject... haha. can't be perfect though. Nice shot.

Nice use of shallow DOF to emphasis the subject.
