Again I am liking the concept here but the colors are not appealing to me.

Another good work even if I prefer the other one but it's really just a matter of taste, the BG is good maybe the face a bit too near of a pic or too white parts, just my two cents.. bye VS

What you did to the model's hair in terms of coloration looks eye-catching but comes at odds with the overall pastel tonality (which I find beautiful) of the image, imho.
I would also tarnish the reddish skin tones.
Sorry about this criticism - but you asked for it.

Yes, I agree about the colors. The face on this model seems to call for darker more extreme colors to match the apparent mood.

The impression I get is middle-eastern - "Persian" to be more specific. Probably because of the treatment of the hair, which suggests a shawl, as well as some of the "arabesques" and flowers that I see in the background. Maybe I am influenced by my recent fairly tale reading, but this image shouts "Schaherazade" to me (a strong and intelligent young woman who triumphed over the capricious king).

Filters can be a two-edged sword (I usually overdo it, to the detriment of the photo), but in an image like this, with a single strong element (less dependent on photographic "realism" for its impact), the effects provide an interesting "backstory". And I like the colors - the vibrancy matches the strong, frontal pose. I might have decreased the contrast on the facial skin somewhat ... but I am seduced by youth (sigh).

Not sure if that's where you were going, Jeff, but that's how it strikes me - middle-eastern fairy tale: caravans, genies, princesses, lotus blossoms and all the rest :)

Thank you have no need to apologize for the criticism. In fact it is important if I am to grow as an artist. It is all very much appreciated and has given me pause......

Sometimes it is difficult to offset color vibrancy with an image. I go from dulling down images....a technique that looks good when printed....sort of 'print like' to extremely 'over-colored' pieces. Part of my problem is that I do not have a properly calibrated monitor....

Really nice play with colours and forms ...
