I took this outside, with the umbrella as a prop. I photoshopped it a little bit afterwards.

Is this a combination of two shots?
The grass bank on which your subject is standing has a clearly visible vertical line with different textured grass on each side of the line.
but the line doesn't continue vertically, otherwise it would pass through you subject ~ which it obviously doesn't.
Frank is right. What you've submitted has a sort of 'era'-ness about it. The face of your subject is particularly appealing.
The fabric of her dress is interesting. It's a nice composition. But after looking again, it's clear that your subject has been placed onto the grass bank
The grass texture from the hem of her dress to just in front of her feet is noticeably different to the grass on the rest of the bank.
There's absolutely no reason why you should not do this ~ it just leaves me wondering: why?
Maybe some help, by further info in the description, would help
As a composite image (if I'm right in my assumptions) you have done very well.
I merely don't understand the need to have created the composite,
Louise, I've done a quick mod, to blend the texture of the grass around your subjects feet and legs.
It's not the best bit of cloning I've ever done , and I apologise for that; but it does show that with a bit of time and patience, the different textures of the grass can be overcome, to make this a very pleasant composition.
A nice composition, but she does look rather fed up. The brolly has burnt out - needs a bit of burning in. I think I would have stayed with colour - there would have been no issue with grass tones then, just different greens and focus levels.
I keep looking at this and thinking it's not quite straight.

I'm not sure that this is a composite Jack. The whole area in front of the young lady is actually a very big cloning job.
Might explain the use of B/W as well?
I'd be intrigued to see the original!
Thanks for all the comments, everyone! lol, Jester is right! It's just a big cloning job! I was playing around with photoshop, and I thought it would look nicer without this one big pot, which i could have just reshot and moved, but I decided to give it a try in photoshop instead! I also selected and sharpened model and blurred background. I also cloned out one tree trunk that was sticking out of the head.
The umbrella is actually light pink with colorful hearts, and the dress is dark pink, but i took it in black and white. I don't know why, i don't usually do this, but I just wanted to see how it looked like that as soon as i took it. Well, i'll post the original if anyone would like to see!
