this shot is wonderful, a lot of emotions to see - happy that spring is here - but also contemplative. The light and the bright yellow colours are pretty, I also love the flower in the front, the softness, it's very nice, thanks

I wasn't to sure if I liked the blurred rapeseed in the foreground or upper right corner,but after a couple of seconds I found they gave a real sense of your subject being
surrounded by a large area of yellow rapeseed.I guess the background may have been changed using a wider aperture,but I think it would depend more on your chosen focal point?
C'est pour çá que certains critiques d'art français parlent sur "l'hazard artialisant". Votre distraction a produit une nouvelle fonction pour f8... LOL, mais je vous dis que le resultat à eté très interessant, avec un "trou" de netteté autour de M., produisant un original portrait. Le POV/DOF c'est bien et aussi la lumière.

hey Erik :)
I really like this photo, 100% natural.
Erik, this is a nice image, full of spring mood... I can feel the perfume...
The foreground unfocused flowers are well located within the frame and help to make the viewer feeling of 'being there'.
The sky area is also well located and not OE at all.
She is too centered and that steals some punch to the shot in my opinion, it is too evident.
The harsh light conditions work well on the soft flower textures, but on the woman is not the same thing... projected shadows are created. However the dynamic range is very well controlled and it looks pleasant.
About the model, correct, but I miss a more expressive face as long as she is in the middle of that beautiful landscape and staring at a blooming flower.
f/8 is appropriate, a wider aperture could´ve got part of the model unfocused... ISO 100?

Zeer knappe pose van M. en mooi gekadreerd met de wazige bloemen in de voorgrond. Mooie kleurmengeling van de bloemen, sjaal en hemel. Allemaal heel zacht. f8 lijkt me eigenlijk juist perfect hier. Je had misschien een twintigtal centimeter diepteverlies kunnen winnen door een groter diafragma maar, zoals Galder schreef, had je het risico van M flou te hebben.

A very well-worked photograph.
I have the curious feeling that I am secretly watching M as she wanders through the field. However, although she is unaware of being scrutinised, I have all the time in the world to absorb her features, her expression, her clothing, her mood.
This sharply focussed subject gains superb atmosphere from the unfocussed areas, which supply a good context.
Central positioning works amazingly well!

You get a good sharpness in this very very good compositio. The yellow of flowers made agood frame to the beautiful model,M.
Spring lives in your photo and touchs a beautiful sky- Love the perspective.

merci pour ta critique, qui est totalement justifiée, je me suis pas assez appliqueé pour capter cette image, j'auri pu faire beaucoup mieux et c'est le but du site.
Fantastique portrait dans les fleurs, ce jaune, ave le contraste de l'habit violet, cette attitdue, le regard de la dame et son attitude qui admire les fleurs, spelndide compo.
merci et amitié
I would have avoided the two yellow blurred spots, the hard and lateral light emphasizes the wrinkles of the face.
Beautiful the colors and the location.
