    Oooo...very pretty. My only nitpick would be that horizontal leaf behind the subject.

    Oh, and what number is "IIV"????

    :blushing: Whoops! Should be VII I think... and you're right, I should have noticed that horizontal leaf at the time, however I didn't

    I like how you got the light in the "hairs" of the plant! Nice angle too.

    I find the bright foliage on the right background a little distracting though. Maybe tone it down or better still use a reflector for the underside of the subject & reduce the exposure to loose it a bit more?

    Oh & get a pair of cutters on that horizontal leaf! :lol: :thumbup:

    I did actually try to knock back the foliage in the back right, but it was getting a bit too obvious - could be a different technique would work better for that, but my PS skills are a little short of where I'd like them to be at the moment. Something to work on though.

    It's a little overexposed near the bottom left hand corner and a touch overexposed in the upper right hand corner.

    A good shot, all in all.
