Looks like there's an interesting story to be told here. And I'm disappointed that you did not have a description here - but it's a really good way for people to make up their own stories.

I love the black and white contrasts of the stones and it's great that you kept a lot of the details on the dress.

Beautiful - the colors and the selective desaturation are perfect!

I am a fan of selective desat, so the color and tones work well for me. I just don't feel this picture though. I don't know if its the mannequin or the barbed wire/christmas lights around the window, jmo.

I love the tones and the selective desat and that is one gorgeously fairytaleish dress and just that slight hint of pink in it is lovely.

The background does this shot in for me. I think I could probably go for the house type background but the Christmas lights ruin this for me. I like the presentation of the dress though.

I like the idea, but I think a better setup would have worked better. a different angle or something. My eye gets drawn from the dress to the window, because my mind is expecting to find a face above the neck, and instead there is the window. The colored shutters detract from the main focus of the image also.

What a very cool shot! Begs a lot of questions...

Nice, I think the desaturated dress adds a nice touch to this part of the story, good representation meets the challenge
