Greetings from the Critique Club...

My critique will be short and sweet since you didn't post any of your own thougths on the photo...

This photo scored high enough in the challenge to not require much critique. Everyone seemed to like it.

I think it's an excellent image. The color saturation is a little heavy for my personal taste though.

This is so awesome! I wonder what her story is. I love photos like this! Just love them! I'm glad it got such a strong score.

Makes me pause as I sit here in my nice house sipping the Assam tea that was picked by someone much like her. Wonderful color. I like the shallow DOF, but I would have cropped a bit off the bottom. I'd also prefer her looking towards the camera. But all said and done, a very good portrait.

this is a nice candid but not a portrait - at least that is how it appears to me

I like the colors and the DOF in this photo. However if it was a tad bit less contrasty it would have been more awsome.

The lovely colours, exotic location and shere simple beauty are diminished because you did not sing or whistle out some music in exchange for a look into her lovely eyes.

Wonderful photo for this challenge. I love the crisp colors and DOF. My only change would be to crop out the bottom area with the shallow DOF to bring in the main subject. Minor detail. The lighting on the green and her dark skin turned out just right.
