Very good portrait. All I would do is crop the bottom just at her "thumb line". Hold something straight on the bottom of the photo and see a subtle difference?
Not sure of subject. If a drop of liquid it is not formed enough. DOF is good and the phot is "moody". Would crop to get "Rule-of-Thirds".
Not enough DOF, or not in the correct plane - I agree that the background female figure should be out of focus. I would make the whole photo brighter (lighter). Subject matter shows a lot of emagination, though.
Would clone out the green entity at left bottom and the two trunks growing from her head. I would make the background much lighter. But, for no post processing, not that bad......
Like the colors and DOF intensity is just right. Would crop subject blooms are more to the left and the bottom almost up to the out of focus bloom.
Like the "cork" concept and compo. in general. Think the Bubbles should be a bit sharper and the whole photo brightened.
I think the plate is far too busy and a distraction to the beaautiful red and "pebble" pit formation. I would crop until 90% of the plate has gone.
Amusing and a bit different. Would have cropped to alonside bees on both ends and reduced contrast.
Along with most comments - would like to see cleaner centre focus, and a slight crop to off-centre the middle.
Unusual , interesting color combo., but the centre needs to be sharper.
I think a careful crop of the LHS and top would improve a good shot.
Perhaps cropping of the RHS to barely keep the back legs in frame would alleviate the cropped front. Perhaps a little more contrast.....
I think a little more contrast and saturation would bring the shells to life, together with a crop.
An unbeatable shot in my view - color, compo., very clever capture of a very difficult color ....
I would prefer a little more contrast. Would not detract from the "calm" atmosphere of the photo.
Agree with Andre, would crop the LHS of the photo after doing what he suggested.
My favourite subject .... bees. The only small change I would make is to crop to get the Rule of-Thirds, which II think would improve the compo. in this photo.
I think the original should be cropped to Rule-of-Thirds and whole photo "darkened" a touch by contrast adjust.
