what an awesome location!

for some reason, the color temp of her skin tones don't look like they match the color temp of the sunlight i'm seeing hitting the wall in the background. maybe it's just the color of the stone but, regardless, i think if you could "warm' her up a bit it would help this image out.

Caution, mean guy critique coming.

No, I'm not really mean (at least I hope I'm not!), but I get that reputation since I try to be really honest in what I see in a picture.

Anyway, here's how I read this image.

The bright patch of light on the wall says warm sunlight, lots of it. The cool skin tones say she is in different light, and my guess judging by the shadows and light falloff on the grass is that it's flash. If the flash light had been warmed a bit, it would probably not be as noticeable.

But here's where I am going to get into real trouble -- the dress. The back of the dress just looks like a mess. I presume all that gathering is very pretty when viewed from the back, but from this angle, it does nothing for the young lady, and just looks like a bunch of material loosely hanging on her.

I kind of wonder a bit what she is doing on a dirt path in high heels, but I can suspend disbelief a bit.

There are also a few neck crease issues.

So I'm left with the impression that this beautiful lady was at a party and for some reason she is now on a dirt path as the sun sets... I'm having a problem making this scene work. It's an interesting location, but I can't easily make it work in my story. Maybe she's giving a dinner party and she ran out of eggs and is going to the barn for more???

That's my issues with the image. Was that mean? I hope not, I didn't mean it to be.

AL - MANY THANKS for being MEAN!!! (it isn`t really - it is HONEST)
Your`s the best critique i ever got in this forum!

The story i tried to convey was - she`s coming home, from the glamorous city
to an old village. Well the attempt wasn`t that succesfull,
but i will keep on trying new things.

Again, many thanks

I think you got a cute model, a very nice location and a good fashion shot idea .. the problem here imho is the light, it looks too unnatural, flat ... I think the photographer must study a photo location and try to get a light that doen't catch the viewer's attention instead of the main subject.
