I love the concept of this picture, the atmosphere and the surroundings. The still lake behind and the subtle white flowers in front of the girl in the tree make for a wonderfully pensive feeling that eminates from every part of the photograph.
The girl in an innocent looking white dress seems lost in thought, and the fact that she is barefoot and is lying inside that tree makes her seem natural and calm, an emotion reflected in her surroundings, especially the surface of the lake behind her.
The camera is in a very interesting position behind those flowers, whose color matches that of the girl's dress, and which are so subtly put in front of her - and which I wouldn't even have paid attention to at first if it weren't for the title of your work. Looking at them again though I love their symbolism and the way you arranged them into your picture.
Overall, the picture has a peaceful, pensive and yet also inspiring impact, and it shows a lovely harmonic scene.
Great job on this wonderful phontograph!

I'm not a photographer, so I'm not confident in my abilities to critique. However, I do want to saw that I absolutely love how her pose keeps with the nature of the scene. It's a beautiful picture, but what really moves it for me is how she is a part of nature. She doesn't break the flow. Wonderful work!! I love the richness of the green!
