This is stunning. The depth of field here sings and the colours cry for attention. I like the detail coming out of her dress, mimics the flowers in her hand. Well caught!

I love this picture! She is absolutely beautiful and I love how the wind is blowing her hair across her face - sublime! My only comment / suggestion would be that on the flowers next to her there are dead flowers - or flowers with no petals at least. It would have definitely added more color to your photograph. Other than that you would have got a 10 from me!

what a great picture !! I love the way the hair is the only thing indicating movement through two nicely parallel windblown lines - good too that the face is slightly obscured to add focus to the 'action' in the hands and the rest remains calm and pensive

One of my favorites. The only problem I have is I wish your photograph would of been atleast in the TOP 10. GREAT JOB!

I rated your picture highly, it was in my top. I thought you had a ribbon to be honest, but maybe next time! Your getting better with each challenge! Good for you!

Wow... 11th place!!! Thank you everyone for all of your very supportive comments.

My thanks especially go out to mhoogendyk, whose not only enjoyed the photo, but gave my daughter an ego boost as well.

And also to menardmam who, if only for a fleeting moment, was impressed enough to wonder if my photo might have been Heida's work. (what an honor! and even more so because she left a comment too)

Nice - I like the clarity and the breeze makes a nice effect

There were a number of "He loves me..." entries in the challenge but this was by far the best. The yellow flowers against her black dress and the flow of her hair reall make the shot. Excellent job.

Woo hoo. This is my 2500th comment. I guess you win some sort of lottery or something. The image is well shot. I like the way you've placed the flowers - except for the one behind her left arm. The model's look is perfect and I love the wind-blown look to her hair. A small point - the necklace and the earring seem to be connected - a bit awkward. Too bad the sky was not more blue up near her head. The white clouds hurt it a bit. But - it certainly meets the challenge - and is an excellent submission too. Thanks for sharing.

my favorite of the pedal pickers. Don't exactly know why... Scores an 8 in my book.

Rated this a six, then a seven, then an eight. It kept growing on me. As a portrait, it is so striking - natural windswept hair, crystal clear focus on the whole individual, obvious symbolism of "loves me, loves me not" even without title (Why do we have to include titles, anyway?), great contrast of black dress and yellow flowers, no confusing background because of angle of shot, downward look indicative of hopeful longing - it is just a really nice photo. Doesn't hurt that the subject is very attractive also.

well done

Nice photo! It may have been more effective to not have the hair blowing across her face. Overall, a good photo.

Even without the title, I think you have catured the challenge well.Good luck with this one

I like it, but I wish her hair wasn't covering her face.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
08/26/2004 04:15:31 PM
Her shirt is a little distracting from the flower but that is just a petty thing. It's a beautiful photo.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
08/26/2004 01:45:53 PM
This is a great photograph IMO. The color of the flowers stands out so vividly up against the black shirt. Great use of colors and use of DOF and I can almost feel the breeze blowing thru her hair. Great Shot!

Wonderful image. Beautiful creation. Well done.

Very nice job. Among the best of this challenge. Subject, focus, colors are all virtually perfect. They do a nice job of conveying an emotional punch.

08/25/2004 02:20:52 PM
Good shot that meets the challenge very well. I like it but it could be better with tighter framing of the girl with the flower. Nice.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
08/25/2004 12:52:02 PM
Nice image !! A tighter crop with only one flower in her hand and no flowers in background could have made more effect. I like her hair going with the wind and covering her face a little. good capture.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
08/25/2004 12:07:45 PM
Great shot! The image is so crisp and the yellow flower against the black dress looks stunning. I love it!
  Photographer found comment helpful.
08/25/2004 09:21:54 AM
Nice...the pattern on her shirt keeps distracting me from the important things (her face, the flowers/petals, her hair)...Different shirt would have earned this a 7...

Good work!

the shirt distracts a bit, otherwise a great photo for the challenge and a great shot. an 8.
