Great shot. I would have liked the photo better if the model could have been perfectly parallel to the rocks, although I suspect mother nature's structures prevented that. I really like the contrast between the cold, hard, gray of the rocks and the warm, soft, and color of the model.

For some reason, I like this. It seemed "cold" at first, but she has such a...well, look I guess... that it adds mystery to this. She seems minimalized by the crop (perhaps the intention), but I would have cropped more off the left to give her more power in the image.

I like the contrast of her colors against the grey rocks.

I like the bold composition. For all the contrast, she almost gets lost. A poignant effect that fits her expression.

I really like the shot contrast between the girl and the rocks, I am not sure what his below the girls feet but if there are rocks then I think showing just a little more would make this an even better shot.

Nice creative image. Wish I could see a little bit of the rock she is standing on, help giving the perspective that she is perched and truly a part of the rocks. Good use of thirds. Good Luck. 7.

Neat! This might look interesting with some more contrast, and a bit of burning and dodging. Also, I personally might have tried out some selective color. Just an idea. :) I like the interesting shapes of the rocks, and the splash of color from the woman's hair.
