Lovely. Just lovely - and very well titled also.

I would sure like to have a look around inside the heads of the individuals who issued a 1's to 3's for this photo. I wonder (quite seriously) what on Earth put them off? I see not one of them cared to comment. "How rude!" :|

this woman's hair is a fire hazard and she should be reprimanded for being so irresponsible

oooohhh..my favorite so far! Maybe mute the skin color a little so it doesn't compete with the lovely spun gold of the hair??? red attracts the eye more than yellow so even though the photo is perfectly balance compositionally the pink of the skin carrries more weight than it should. maybe. 9

nice work with the soft focus... the composition could possibly be stronger if some of her face was visible.

The softness really works well here. Great use of the light and the color of the hair.

10, even though I would like for the highlights to cover more of the top of the hair and the brush. This is a very beautiful photo.

Sensational, but what a pain to manage all that hair! Love the lighting on the hair and an overall very natural looking photo. Great stuff.
