I normally love trash the dress shots...but this one is way to contrived. the dirt is not natural looking and the lighint from the flash is way to bright. good attempt though. 5

I like the obvious effort you've gone to.

The model's pose is in conflict with her predicament, which gives it an edge, like she's enjoying being thrashed.

interesting subject, but it doesn't make the shot attractive (IMO)

Details in light and dark areas seem to be minimal (4 for technical alone.) I do need to make this comment... There are certain subjects that I hate to see used for Challenge set-ups, especially those about human tragedy. Spousal abuse, child abuse/exploitation, and suicide are 3 of the biggies. If she had an open bottle next to her for "Smashed" or "Trashed", it would have been not good, but a beaten wife on her wedding day??? My thinking may still be stuck "in the box" from the middle ages, but this is too "out of the box" for me.

I'm going to apologize to the photographer for reacting before checking on the Title. It turns out that it really was a Trashed Wedding Gown, not Thrashed. I'll not feel sorry for my stand on using human tragedy to win contests unless it's photojournalism, but I do feel badly if my comments spoiled what was a fun shoot.
