should have placed higher. I guess the flare really bothered everyone.

Very nice.
The sunlight casts a beautiful color on the subject.

You can also feel the emotion trying to be conveyed.

The glare is an nice effect but it is a little overpowering.

I like the suns rays produced by the lens flare. If only the pink-ish ray was yellow like the others.

Excellent pose, interesting lighting, good exposure and composition. I'm ambivalent about the flare and torn hose, and think that it would look better without these somewhat distracting features, at least the color streak. Hope it does well.

Very dramatic lighting and composition. The model is also displaying good emotions. Very nice work!

Great lighting and composition but, I think it might have been cropped a little tighter on the left to cut out the discoloration.

Excellent execution. But the area on the top left is over-exposed. A little more crop would have helped. 7.

perfect expression, perfect pose, perfect colors and perfect composition, with a title to match it and to fit the challenge. i am giving it a 10. although the pink beam of light is a bit distracting, i think its ok not to have cropped it off because a sunless photo wouldnt have the same effect.

Acting of the model is very fake here. I don't belive this photograph even for a second.

The torn hosiery is a nice touch. Gutsy call on leaving the sun flare in. I like it, but I imagine you're going to get called out on it by others. :D

This could be VERY enticing if the composition was to exclude the part just above the hill at the end of the visible road. Just a touch more mystery, that's all. But then you would have had to do something about the flare (at the time of image capture).

Good luck in the challenge.

Great shot. Love the emotion. The torn stockings. Was she left there by someone? Was she running after someone? Great concept. I'm sure others will be bothered by the light flare but I say it adds to the contrast of the picture. The torment of the woman is met by the warmth of the sun. Excellent job. A 10 from me

I would have cropped out the pink part of the flare on the left to what is an awesome image...8
