Greetings from the Critique club.

I didn't vote your image, but if i had i would have given it a score in the middle of the pack ... about where it scored.

What I liked: Good composition, good technical execution.

What I disliked: set-up feel of the photo, and lack of emotional payload. I can't figure out what you're trying to say.

Clearly it meets the challenge, but it doesn't tell me a story, make me care about the subject, wow me into looking longer.

You have some fantastic images in your portfolio. Don't let this get you down. learn and move on.

omfg.... This was one of my highest rated. One of your three 9s in fact. No way is this a 5.3. What the heck is wrong with the voters these days?!

creative use of selective desat. it's corny but still original and individual. I like that combination! 8

I would have really loved to have voted purely on the model, her pose, the lighting, her hair all of which are superb but I'm sorry the flowers just don't do it for me. I would have loved just her dress left in colour and left it at that, I will still vote it high for the composition and model appeal. Good luck

Interesting. I'm not sure I like how the person seems to have a blue-ish tint... but I really like your composition and the clean white background works well here!

I like the idea. I think if you would put more time into it, it would worked out much better.
