This image caught my eye the moment I saw it in my inbox.
It represents the free and uncommitted feeling of spending one's time in a beautiful place, as shown here as a field.
The picture tells a story, it shows fun and happiness and summer and good times. A song by Jack Johnson would probably go perfectly with it. <img src="…" width="15" height="15" alt="=)" title="=) (Smile)" />
Although the partly unfocused book adds a kind of romantic feeling to the picture, I think that the sharp blades of grass on the right are a bit distracting.
Apart from that there's nothing I don't like about this picture, I'm quite into the position of the model and that only her legs and her hand are visible.
Altogether I think this is a lovely picture and it deserves much more attention. <img src="…" width="15" height="13" alt=":heart:" title="Heart" />

I went into the critiqueable area and this is the one that really caught my eye. I do like this though I'm having trouble figuring what the focus of the photo is. i do think that it looks like a beautiful place to read, calm and relaxing. The model did a wonderful job also. I love this piece though the focus is somewhat throwing me off, I'm also seeing more beauty in the piece because of it. I'm curious what book was used? This photo is eye catching and wonderful. I really do like this piece of art. Great Job!

Thank you so much for the critique :hug:

I understand what your coming from with the focus. My lens was having trouble auto focusing this day so I went to manual hoping for the best. (:

The book she was reading is called "The Green Cameo Mystery". It was a book with a stunning green-teal cover I found in a forgotten pile of old books.
