I love this image. I like the radiating arms of the parasol guiding the viewer's eye to the centre of the image. The parasol being a symbol in Buddhism for protection against illness and harmful energies, which is appropriate for a bride to be. Then there is a ring of "clutter" in the pattern on the dress and the jewellery on the head and hair, which by contrast leaves that simple, beautiful face as the focal point of the image. I really like it.   Posted: 01/05/2020 23:15:13

Dan, I think she is beautiful. The contrasting colors of her dress and umbrella against her soft face, I believe, make a perfect portrait. To me her face is flawless with great catch light in her eyes and her head framed by the jewels. I find myself really drawn to her. Nice!   Posted: 01/06/2020 10:17:29

Beautiful picture. The crop is excellent and I like how the ribs of the parasol radiate around her head.   Posted: 01/07/2020 10:33:48

Hi Hung Phan, I like the changes you made but it changes the mood. The lighting of the subject works but it makes the background too light.   Posted: 01/13/2020 07:48:34

A perfect crop and rendition of a beautiful girl. The slightly shaded face fits with what the parasol is supposed to do, so I would not change it.   Posted: 01/14/2020 23:14:57
