I have never written a critique, and I don't think I am very authorized to do so because I am not professional photographer (or an other type of artist) in the slightest, and I actually don't take that many pictures. But I do love to snap some shots, and I really love Michelle's photography, so here it goes: I first want to say what a great location ths picture was taken in. And I really love how the white dress pops out, and in the reflection it turned a bit blueish, but the bottom of the skirt is still very visible. I also like the fabric pattern, because does not clash at all with the nature feel of the overall picture. I like how she stands, giving the feel that she's weaving through the trees, and not walking on a direct path, and kind of in a twisting, circular motion. (Maybe I confused some people there. I hope I make sense.) I like how her right hand if holding her dress, but the only thing that seems a bit awkward is the other hand. The arm doesn't even seem strange, it's just the hand on the tree, it just looks a bit tight and tense. I know she's holding the tree, but spreading a couple fingers out would make it look differently, but it's just an idea. Maybe it's just from a distance, or the camera and the angle of the hand. Now onto her hair. At first, I wasn't sure I liked how well it blended in with the trees in the background, but if it didn't match I don't think the picture would look like she actually belongs there, like it does now. So I really like her hair! I also like how it's layered and sort of fly-away, because you don't see many pictures with that. Over all I love hte serenity of it, and it's like te veiwer is looking it something secret, with so much emotion. GREAT JOB! Teriffic! :D
