I am really loving this photo. Has a very surreal feel to it. The only thing that bothers me is the stars at the left of the image seem to be starting to trail. Doesn't really detract from the photo though, so I am giving this a 9 out of 10.

My photo was taken during a re-enactment of a battle in the late 1800's. There was this guy just sitting in the tree and snapped his picture. The processing on it was a kind of trial and error until I got something I liked. I wanted the colors to be very muted, almost non-existent.

Love the gritty look of this photo and the lighting is perfect...9/10.

Nice house picture but I have to say the light in this picture doesn't quiet work for me.
The sun is too harsh although some might like the sunny/bright day feeling.
7/10

What I had in ming was much more awesome than what turned out, oh well :rolleyes:

Not all that interesting but I like that the sky isn't totally blown out. How much for the rig? 4/10

Looks pretty cool, although I have to say I am not sure what am I looking at.
The back-lighting and overall lighting is very cool though.
Is this some kind of Alien drink?
8.8/10

I think you nailed it from a technical perspective. Lighting/exposure, background and sharpness are all great. However, the pose/model is just too boring and there connection to the viewer at all. Also, I'd warm it a bit in post. 6.5/10

The colors seem a bit too redish which makes my eyes want to focus on the flowers then her skin. I would suggest to try to bring out her blue eyes more, that to me should be the strongest part of the image.
For the hand, it would be best if it was resting on her stomach or playing with her long hair. It takes away from the beauty of this image.

One final suggestion would be to take this image and rotate it and look at it vertically. You will see that the hand looks more like a a salute vs her gently touching her face.

5/10

I guess it's my turn, any suggestions on improving is highly welcomed :)

I like the concept of this image, but what I feel would have made it work better was if the lights were in focus. Having the OOF lights in front of the subject is distracting and takes away from the overall image. I otherwise would have really liked this and the lighting those lights create is nice. 6/10 (would have been a solid 8/8.5 if the lights were in focus).

Some moments are too amazing to be ruined with words.
