^^ Nice shots. Two commenst:
1. Dress needs to match the surroundings
2. Loose the trees. Don't know why people still use them as props
The person who posted after you, who quoted your comment about the dress, must not notice how the black dress just doesn't jive, especially with the dark bench.
You have an interesting point about trees.
I notice them a lot because I'm an arborist. My biggest issue with trees, is if I want to use lighting. Lighting removes the natural shadows in bark that come from light that should spill down from above. So more and more I'm trying to avoid people next to tree trunks or do something different that does not light the bark.
So my thoughts are use them or avoid them. Just depends.
