This is a beautiful photo, but I'm sure you knew that. It is very catching with the vivid colors. Often when you try to make the colors this vivid, you end up with some issues with the color boundaries, but this photo is beautifully edited.

I really like the warm feel of the photo, and the lighting is very well executed. The back lighting profile is a lovely affect, though there is maybe a touch more blown out areas than I would like, especially at the forehead. The depth of field is very nice. The background is nicely blurred while the subject is beautifully in focus.

My main criticism is with the positioning of the model in the frame. If you are familiar with some of the basic rules/recommendations of photography, one that I think could have made a positive impact on this composition is filling the frame. My recommendation would be to reposition, rather than cropping, so that the model is in the left third and the top of her head is nearer the top of the frame. The subject of the photo is the model, and she only occupies about 20% of the frame. I think that minor adjustment would make a big impact on this photo.
What do you think?

WOW, so so pretty. And I love the colours, it creates such a jolly mood. the red, green and yellow compliment each other so well--and I especially love how sharp the photo is. Wonderful how you put full focus on the subject model! she is so lovely haha

Really amazing but try not to have the focal point in the center, especially if you're going to have a watermark right there...It really hurts the shot.

The lighting is really nice, even though it is overexposed on her face in some spots. And as others have said, that watermark :dead: Overall a nice shot though :)

Everything about this picture is just amazing! Magical! Wondrous! Just one thing though. Is the watermark really necessary? I feel like it's taking away some of the majesty of the picture.

Two major questions: do you really believe that watermark is necessary; especially when it covers her face? The second major question: Have you considered not centering your images? By applying the rule of thirds to this image you'd get much more tension without the watermark being intenseive. Plus, you'd be able to set her in the shadows a bit more to allow the over-exposure of her face to really contrast against that darker green. With that, you'd have a much more solid base to the image and there would be multiple focal points (again) adding tension.

Your depth of field is wonderful, but you can't just take a pretty model with a wonderful expression and then just cover it up with a silly watermark.

Looks great, the colors look really deep! The only thing I would have to say is that she is pretty much perfectly centered which I usually don't like. Great shot!

Good expression and contrast of colour. I feel like positioning the model slightly more off-centre (to the left) would have helped draw me into the photo.

Very interesting shot... I love the light in it.
The composition is a wee bit centered for my tastes and the Contrast seems off.
But overall great work ^.^
