This is a truly wonderful photograph that reminds me of the beauty and calm found in Ireland. I could see myself relaxing in this bed of leaves while listening to my favorite Enya piece. When a picture has the ability to pull you in to the point of you imagining yourself as though you were there, it's a powerful thing. This photograph does that for me.

The emphasis on the color green along with the subtly of the brown and white dress is a great combination. The blur effect on the leaves in the foreground is a nice idea but I think that they are perhaps a bit too blurry or the wrong kind of blur effect. The model's expression is that of getting lost in deep thought or daydreaming and it is fitting for this setting.

All in all, this is a rather fantastic piece and I was glad to critique it. Great work! :D

Once again you show why you are a master of composition. Somehow(No doubt with training and lots of hard work and dedication) you create images that are far more than just photographs. This, like a lot of your pieces is an illustration. She mingles in with the foliage with such grace. Not a model thrown into an "Interesting" backdrop. We are left with the feeling that she belongs there, that the growth is as much a character as she is. Her costume is perfection. Nordic, ancient, a product of a time long ago or a world of myth and magic. Her expression adds to the image and to the mystery. What is she thinking? What worries are troubling her, what has brought her to this magical place? There is the feeling that she has an important choice to make...Brilliant work from a brilliant artist.
