Minus one for the obscure title. It almost looks as though she's a real life part of a painting. (Nice of you to drop in and pick up a ribbon now and then! Congrats!)

Dang! I guess 9th isn't going to cut it, eh?
  Photographer found comment helpful.
07/08/2008 12:30:35 AM
Her face is too, smooth. The background is totally blurry and way out of focus. What's a girl in a dress like that doing picking flowers. This must have been just sheer luck. Keep trying. :-)

You know I was just kidding, This is a great photo.

beautiful
  Photographer found comment helpful.

Lovely use of natural light and I love the warm tone of the image. The pose, bent forward as she is, looks dreadfully uncomfortable. Eye contact is nice.

07/02/2008 02:08:18 AM
Great portrait although I feel the eye make-up is over done.
