The 'eyes' are great- that's what I always look for first and the tone and framing are very,very good. Sharp focus and good contrast. It's a winner.

It had been a while since I have entered a contest. I was finally getting the itch again. This site has really taught me so much. I entered this portrait, because it was what I had from the weekend that I REALLY liked. I knew in the mind of alot of viewers it wouldnt be considered as "environmental" but I though that a few would get it? I am not dissapointed in the score, or the comments. I love the shot! I am happy. I actually did think that the environment fit pretty well in the shot? Those "Spring Flowers" as we call them.....are a huge part of an environment in the spring in Kentucky. But I didnt think worldwide.....I thought local? I still thank you for all your comments, and I learned something. The pic needs to be universal. That makes sense. Congrats to the winners! They were wonderful!

I don't know if this would be considered environmental, but it's a beautiful, clear and wonderfully processed portrait.

Very nice portrait, but we can't see any of her environment, which is crucial to this challenge.

while this is a stunning portrait -- it doesn't show the lovely young ladies environment. I adore her freckles!

not bad as a kids portrait, but where is the environment?

Angel or imp? Those eyes and expression hint at something besides the sweet.
This is a really nice portrait, the detailing in wonderful. You've captured the essence of Gracie, but I'm wondering about the environment that she is in.

I love this picture...you have captured this little girls personality. But, what is the environment that she is in?

Nice shot and processing. Although this is a portrait, it doesn't show the her environment...4

Adorable face and nice soft lighting, but DNMC - back up and include some environment around your subject.

Nice portrait but I think I'd like to see a little of her environment

Great capture! Very clean!! wish there was more "environment" in this shot though.

Great portrait, but hard to tell much about her without her surroundings (environment).
