I like it a lot.

Im seeing the PIX on one of my notebooks which has the least able LCD screen, but the title certainly describes the PIX.

Also you've captured the subject's focus superbly.

Will be watching to learn what others think.

Just love it!

The eyes. The warm light. The colours! The composition!

I see that little bit of red on the left, and my "organizing mind" wants to shift it over to the right, but I think it really works in this picture. If it was just yellow on the left and red on the right, it might be too organized. That red adds a bit of tension, so to speak.

Take care & Happy Shooting!

NOTE: I'm trying to capture the picture in my head! Not the one my camera sees!

The red and yellow background overly attract the eye. Her clothing looks purposely dis-arranged and is distracting.

Personally, I find the image to be very attractive, well done and flattering to the model. The flowers add a nice splash of color. In my opinion, it's an excellent image.

I am again impressed. I do not find the flowers distracting at all as they are well out of focus and therefore do what was intended. The model 'pops' in the image because of the excellent lighting and sharpness. Thanks for sharing.

Aleksandar, I see you have once again delivered to us one of your beautiful models. While I find the photograph technically perfect, nice pose, good lighting, etc.,I have to agree with Ron (Streets) re the bare shoulder. It just looks a bit "contrived" to me. The skin of that region is very appealing and the whole photo would rate five stars had you just made it look like an accident. This picture is not up to your usual perfection. Sorry, my friend, I am only giving positive criticism.

Like the bright colored background you use without taking away from the main subject.
Comments always welcome.
