I was in the mountains this weekend, and the sun was so harsh and there were no clouds, verry bad light for taking pictures. When I was just about to give up in a shaded place up on a pile of wood, there she was, this gorgeaus gipsy child just like you see her. Her name is Andreea, I asked that after i took the pictures, the picture has no preparation for posing or anything is just like I found her.

Cristi, this was a 10 from me as I said below. I'm just coming back now trying to understand how I managed to forget adding it to my favorites. Well, that's fixed now and I hope you know that it's been my favorite all along, even if it wasn't official.

I'm so glad to see you back and really hope you keep entering some challenges or adding to your portfolio. DPC desparately needs your vision.

Excellent b&w conversion, the tones are very nice. Wonderful setting and pose. That dress lends an interesting vintage feel to the photo. Great job!

I don't think I've seen anything as perfect as this. I just keep coming back to study, admire and enjoy this. It's perfect in everyway. Truly a professional masterpiece and I can't wait to see who the photographer is that produced such a pristine work of art. Because that is exactly what this is, a piece of art. 10

this is somehow both Victorian and Baroque. An allegorical wonderland. 10

-I like her expression.. I think it matches nicely with the title, as if she just fell from heaven and is curious to everything on earth
-Good choice of B & W

Great B/W photo. The little girl is a bit too centered. Try cropping where there is more of the tree to the left of the girl to see what affect you get. Focus in this image is nice and sharp. Hope it does well.

Obviously, this is technically wonderful; really, really good job. But the thing that jumps out and makes me love this little girl is that dirty foot. It's a heartbreakingly sweet image. Hope you do very well with it - you better!

This is one that makes you stop and look, I don't know what you did in post processing to give it this fairy talish feel it seems to have but I really like it. She does look like a little angel. Hope you do really well with this its one of my fav's here. 10

Very relaxed, candid, and well-composed image.
This works well in black & white and overall presents a nice balance.
