Vision: This is a stunning piece. It would look lovely on a cute romantic card, or on a book cover. The colors just draw you in. I like how you used complementary ones (red and green) to present them in the most beautiful way. The waterdroplets (and bokeh) complete this beautiful photograph. You can see the diversity of them; and the effect looks just like a morning dew.

Originality: I've seen many same concepts - flower closeups (especially roses) and waterdroplets on them. I can't say it's original, but its a great simple idea. The difference that you've made in creating your own version is mostly based on colors, and that makes it really different from the same concepts. Well done on that.

Technique: This piece is actually an example of how a good close up photo should look like. The focus is rather nice, as well as the use of selective colors. The only thing I found slightly disturbing is the blur effect, especially in the upper left corner. It looks like it was intentional in some parts of the image.

Impact: Even though we've seen the similar ones, this work is special and it's something I'll remember for a long time, especially because of the "red + green" you used. I don't know if it was intentional, but I like the symbolism of it. It reminds me of mature people with young souls. The center of the rose is still green, despite the fact that the rose has blossomed in all the red richness. Some people I know are just like that, and I think everyone should be - young souls.

Thank you for sharing this and well done.

This is my first ever critique, so I will be strict <img src="e.deviantart.net/emoticons/let…" width="15" height="15" alt=":P" title=":P (Lick)"/>

“You are my golden star” is one of those photographs that make you stop and stare, and feel, and imagine.
The girl in the picture reminds me of Alice from The Wonderland story, or some other kind of a fairy tale that only she knows. Her expression is delicate, somewhat dreamy, but still her wandering eyes are focused on one little dot in the distance she considers only hers. It might even be a little star – her golden star, because from this angle we might get a feeling that she's floating somewhere above the land surface.
The bokeh effect adds to this special mysterious feeling. We (the viewers) don't know where that place she stands in is, but we feel the glorious impact of it.
The feather in her long hair, along with the subtle colors of the photograph, awakens some kind of an old emotion, like those beautiful sepia pictures from the past we cherished for a long, long time, and we never wanted to get rid of them.
Her body is positioned perfectly, slightly provocative, with the innocent detail of light playing in her hair; maybe the summer is behind, but it’s not over yet.

Overall, with the natural beauty of the model and her innocent, yet striking pose, this could be a cover of the book I would certainly buy - a modern Cinderella story.
You are my golden star
