When I rate it this way I truly do mean it. Photography is such an interesting medium, because while there is realism to it, there is also such a burtonesque over realism- overly rightness to a scene, and this has it, and I love love love love love this picture.

I don't say that to be annoying I say that to be honest. The way the ones in front are out of focus are really quite interesting photographically speaking, because usually a photographer tries to get those little annoyances out of the way, but you just let the camera do it's magic. I like the way the bokeh in the trees is a lot larger than normal bokeh happens, probably just the genius of the lens and the right circumstances, but the way that the muddled green fades up into white really creates a sort of cotton-white dress- old souther- country feel, while not loosing the modernness of the way you photographed it and edited it. What lens did you use, might I ask?

In any case I'm sure your also looking for areas one which you can improve, and I tell you, there isn't a huge amount you could have improved on, maybe clarity in lots of parts, but under the circumstances I think you did incredibly well. Some of white space and dark space don't fit quite right, but then at some point critiquers will have to learn that not every category is photo manipulation ;P.

The flower to the right side, the highest one, completely detracts from the powerfulness of the white space after closer inspection because it breaks the line, whereas the tree doesn't break it it just divides it softly, and draws the eye up, this puts a stopped in the flower, cloning could get that out, but you are the artist, and I intend to let you remain that way, just technical opinions, I guess you could say. Some places in this photo the contrast looks a little bit intrusive, the darks way to dark in some places, I think. But that may just be a personal view and not a general aesthetic. As they say, to each their own.
What do you think?
