    I took this picture on a little farm in Brazil. I liked the colors and the textures that I saw, and I thought it would make a nice portrait. I'm still working out my post processing technique so any comments or criticism would be much appreciated. Thank you for your feedback!

    I find the frame distracting, other than I like it.

    Thanks, Abraxas!

    Thank you for your comment Steve, I have attached an "unframed" copy below. Is it better?

    Very beautiful photograph. Lovely centred composition --the subject and the flowers (along with the crack at the top left) break the symmetry nicely.

    I don't think it needs any further processing, but that's just me.

    I love the color

    red blue yellow and green.

    I love the way of balance.

    Love the shot without the framing.. the cracks, texture, expressions and emotions coming from the lady are wonderful captures. great shot!!!

    I think is a great photo, putting aside the colours and all that, I think it has great emotion, you look at this picture and feel peace.

    I agree the colors are very nice and I like the simple form of the image, the only problem I see is she is not really doing anything other than looking really pissed off. Not sure if she is or not but that's what it looks like to me. If she was say looking at something or doing something it would help. Otherwise it's a great shot nice composure with nothing I find distracting.
