Nice shot but an odd angle. It also seems as if there's a lot of dead space. A tighter crop would have improved this.

At first I didn't notice any transparency, it looks like the graininess could be moire or something. Still, I think the effect could be made more powerful. Nice shot.

The compression makes it look like the picture was scanned out of a magazine...

nice framing. great colors. flat. boring. if this is a veil, I think getting some draping in the veil would great add interest.

Almost like a canvas, that background is a bit distracting, though

I view the challenge as the veil being the primary point of focus. As it's not really visible here, this looks like a grainy rose. Nice background, though.
