really like the soft glow on this...seems that score should have been much better, but then there were 678 entries...so that makes it tougher...your % placement is pretty good...very sweet picture

didn't see this in the challenge - but just love it.

How do you get that softness in there? is that a Glam Glow action? It sure is cool.

This is art that is worthy to hang on many walls! Really has a timeless, every person's memory kind of feel to it. I related to it instantly - ah the magic of photography.

This is very nice work - you should be proud to have a shot like this in your portfolio.

Nice cute soft image. I think it was nicely done, but doesn't move me personaly.

Very nice, soft action really works with this shot. Wish it were more rule of thirds with a little more space to the right.

So dreamy... Hmm, maybe ease back one step on the soft glow? She's disappearing.

I think its glowing just a bit too much and the hat gets lost in the sky color wise but I like the composition. 5

Great photo, should be definitely placed in top 10! (10)

appropriate softness for scene. Like the tones used. You would think the dark clump at the bottom right would be distracting but it actually (for me anyway) balances the image. Well done and well cropped.

I like your image but find it a little "diluted." Perhaps the white stripe down the back of the skirt is a bit distracting. Nicely creative though.

Very nicely done.

The over exposure is a fantastic idea here, though its a bit too much as the hat gets lost... bring it back a bit and you have yourself a winner!
  Photographer found comment helpful.

This could of won "soft focus" in my opinion. Very nice!

Composition: 7 - Really nice, not quite centered but not quite following the generic "rules" - works well!
Technical: 6 - I like the soft focus and the high key but its a shame the hat blends into the sky.
Creativity: 6 - I like that it poses questions such as where is she going, and what is she looking at?
Appeal: 6 - Could add appeal by adding a slight sepia tint, really subtly, just to add some warmth. The B&W just seems a bit cold and uninteresting.

Overall Calculated Average Score: 6
