    I love the play here raiven!! The flowers look great with the blue, and the exposure looks good to me.

    My nit on this one is the composition, it feels rather messy despite the striking initial appeal of the shot. The crop through the flowers at the bottom and left edge is distracting to my eye. I think the crop should have happened through a stalk without flowers if that was possible.
    This has the potential to be absolutely gorgeous though and if I had the opportunity to reshoot it I would.
    Hope that helps

    Cool idea. I'm sure you people in those freezing temps are finding it hard to deal with now. I know the 'Snow Girl' Kat is!

    I like the photo as is except for the crop through the flower on the left of frame.

    I think I would shot this with less DOF and from the right of frame. By this I mean I would have focused on that clump of flowers at the right of frame and shot through to the flowers we see at the back of this photo. That way I would made that right hand clump the main subject and the rest of the messy plant would merely have added depth. But that's me and what I like.

    As I said I like the photo and how you've presented it.

    I like it, I think the randomness of the composition makes the shot. Great tones, just works as is for me, very nice. I would leave as is, just has this real wild look about it and it makes it unique.

    Hey Raiven. Nice exposure and colour! I also agree with Marco about the crop. Perhaps make just the 2 stalks leading to the top right the subject?

    Cheers
