love this composition..compelling work!

I gave this an 8. Really liked the composition and capture. The 'hidden' (visually) candid nature of this helps capture her seemingly 'far away mind'. The clothing and accessories of course come up extremely well with your excellent processing - which if you could bottle and sell would perhaps make you a tidy sum. The focal points too, very good. Excellent image.

I guess I pegged you didn't I? Nice finish, Rich.

Great shot. Congratulations on the great finish. I personally thought it would finish even higher though!

Lots to be learned here, as far as the elements that create a great photograph - composition, light, toning, polished presentation. But mostly it's a lovely, thoughtful, introspective photograph with a gentle soul.

your processing skills are something that I am striving for and hope to one day achieve, this picture is elegantly composed and is beautiful

Beautiful capture. Gorgeous tones and I do like the crop. The blur/dof looks perfectly applied as well. This should do quite well. Good luck! ;) (no vote)

Amazing portrait, love the pose and editing.

Beautiful tones and an admirably bold composition. Also the most elegant (by which I mean restrained) orchestration of both focus and apparent sharpness. It's not really my kind of photograph, but even I can see that it's damn near perfectly executed. 9.

My wish is that you will not have to suffer any "pity you chopped the top of the head off" comments.

great image, love the composition and the tones, recreates the feeling of the 'nature postcards' of the late 19th century.

I have seen this on 1x and loved it! So, the impact second time will perhaps be a bit less. But nothing to subtract from the loveliness of the shot. 9???neigh 10.

This has a 21.gif yanko feel to it. There is the perfect range of tones and I like the dof blurring out around her.

Very yanko-ish! Lovely tone and a very nice portrait. 8

Easily the best in this challenge - fantastic image. The composition, crop, lighting, colouring are all wonderful. That is so well done, congratulations :):) (One of maybe a handful of 10's I've ever given ;))
