A lazy day at the park. These friends may have had a little too much to drink.

I love the composition, but can I just say that I almost always hate vignetting? It seems like a cop out, a contrived way to force the eye towards the center or create a "mood" (though I'm not sure what the mood is supposed to be... mayonnaise?). Sorry, just a general rant. As I said this is well composed and doesn't need vignetting imhhhho...

Get rid of the laughers and make this a shot of the woman in the black coat, and I'd love it. Those eyes look restful. Love the out of focus ring.

interesting filter(?) with the soft blur effect. gives it a dreamy quality. with the one lady looking directly in the camera, it's almost like she's the only real person and the other people reside in her dream.

Nice photo. Looks like they are enjoying themselves. The women in the middle seems to be somewhere else, making the viewer wonder where. Nice colors and fading effect.

Ok nice pic, not sure your allowed the use of the filter strictly but hey who cares, the guy with the hat looks like he is trying to fit in the shot

I like this one a lot...the composition, the vignetting giving it a dreamy kind of feel, everyone laughing and not paying attention to the camera and them POW right there she is staring right at you....beautiful model...a touch of red eye but what a great shot

This is a pleasant shot, with the partial soft focus aptly applied to the externals only.

I'd consider anything and anyone but the central figure external to this image, really. Perhaps, the soft focus could have been extended even further inwards, blurring all but her strikingly even features, the intense eye-contact? What a shining model!

I really like this photograph. To me it gives an excellent feeling of peace, as the outer-ring of people all appear to be in the the process of an action (laughing) and yet the focus, and clarity is on the young lady looking directly at the camera. That gives me a sense of stillness and calm - much like those moments you read about where two people make eye contact and the world stands still. I'm not sure if that's what you were going for, but that's what it evoked to me. :)

I like the edges, makes it seem all soft and cuddly, I like how the girl in the middle is just there looking at the camera. Good detail.
