Dang... lovely colors! Beautiful portrait. Probably would have scored much higher in the challenge it was in, if there were visible rain drops or an umbrella or something. But dang! Simply beautiful.

Cute! I like the cool color scheme. A bit of of an akward pose for the girl - she seems to be twisting kinda weird.

Too blue and the girl looks like an awkward shape. But love the focus

Too centered and hard to see the leaf.

I wish they had such cute rain boots when I was a kid!
I notice a blue cast to the photo overall and expecially on her face. It makes her look cold. Usually, placing the subject off center adds more interest to a picture, but I'm not so sure about that in the case.

Very nice. I like her outfit...simple, classic, evocative of childhood. I like the color contrast of the green boots with the dark ground and her violet dress. I'm wondering if this could have been warmed up a bit though. It appears very blue. Of course, that can help to create the mood but I feel like her skin tone could be warmed up a tad. Just a tad. This shows thoughtfulness in composition--very simple background, interesting placement of the child in a vertical frame. I kind of wish she were looking into the camera---her eyes are at perfect placement in the center of the upper third of the frame that it seems like when we look there we should meet her gaze. I would have likely given this a 9 or 10 if she were meeting the viewer's eye.

Not bad, cute lookin litte girl. I think this would be better if we could see all of her reflection on the pavement. Just an idea.

Cute and certainly shows rainy conditions. The color temp may be a tad cool (blue), a little slide upward would make the white of her dress whiter. Best of luck to you in the challenge.

This could be composed better (maybe offset or have a leaf in the watter as well as in hand.) But it is very cute!

Gorgeous portrait. The subdued colour and light adds so much to this. Wish those cute gumboots were more in focus, but nonetheless, the image is a treasure :)
