2007 Neiman-Marcus Adolphus children's parade.

I knew the office building would kill the illusion, but I tried to shoehorn that in with a clever title. Well, I tried anyway. Gotta stay within the editing rules. I expected this was going to come in within the low to mid 5's and it did. All the comments were spot on. Thanks for the feedback during voting.

Here's a new version of it without any rules to adhere to:
' . substr('//images.dpchallenge.com/images_portfolio/80000-84999/83313/120/621131.jpg', strrpos('//images.dpchallenge.com/images_portfolio/80000-84999/83313/120/621131.jpg', '/') + 1) . '
The edit is not the best, but it's actually my first attempt at merging two separate images in this way.

This would be a nice photograph, if that building in the background wasn't so distracting.

The background takes away from her face a bit but great look on the model.

might need to be just tad brighter, but I like the colors and the soft focus. Also, it might have been neat if you had been able to take the shot in a spot where you could see more of a building, or that felt even more 'city like' to enhance the idea of her being out of place. Just a thought. :)

The dress is very colorful. This picture isn't getting me for the simple fact that I feel like its a shot you caught somewhere and said oh, I can make it fit the challenge somehow. As a photograph I like the processing, the soft glowy feel is nice.

Gorgeous model on the float, but would love to see you take two steps to 6 steps to the right and cut that building out of the shot.

Great subject but for me the building up behind the trees on the right really destroys the fairy tale spell. Nice shot though.

Lovely processing to make all those colours pop.

A little too much NI or soft glow added for my tastes. The tilt of the bars makes the image feel a bit off balance to my eye. Great colors though.
