It's well into winter here, so we had to shoot this quickly in Devonian Garden, downtown Calgary. And we had to do it fast before security got on our case. They don't like dead girls in the bushes.

Lighting is too flat and uninteresting. Nice garden, though.

Cool idea, and I love the point of view, and the way she is slightly covered by the branch. Some more contrast and even some more saturation might look really nice here.

Imo, it meets the challenge. But it really doesn't fit well to me. Her surroundings give away to more of a modern day back yard feel. There are too many different types of plants here. So instead of noticing the story I am drawn to the plants instead. I think this would have worked better just grass or even in a pile of leaves.

A lovely composition. I think a little more editing could have taken it more into the fairy tale realm though.

Fun take on the challenge. I think a little tighter crop on our apple victim might have helped.

Excellent pose. It seems a bit flat though. A little more contrast would have scored a bit higher.

very cool, you had a snow white costume! I think I would have tried to work with that more and not hid the model behind the bush. although with the costume one of the most easily identifiable images so far in the challenge.

Meets the challenge well. Nice composition although it seems a tad dark to me and could possibly have done with a colour boost

Nice shot though

Good general idea but the post processing leaves alot to be desired. Just a bit flat and boring overall. A heavy handed processing could have made this pop much more.

Image is flat.

I like the costume and the apple idea, the lighting seems a bit dull and unfocused though. it doesn't help to make the subject pop out with her surroundings
