Inspirational! First time I've ever said this in the crit gallery, but I see no way to improve the image.
Grasping at straws, perhaps the iris is a little hexagonal in the big portrait.

Still, must say I love it, and it has given me some fresh ideas for my wedding portraits, thank you!

Hello Paul and Kim. I have to say this is unique and quite beautiful. Like Patricia, I feel I am nit-picking, but will say what I think. On the bottom right side there is a red patch that I think spoils the image. I think there is a flower in there (wish I could view large), but it's mostly the white bits that look like skeletal hands that are distracting my attention from the rest of the image. Not sure what they are. Also, on the left of the frame, where the swirl of the stem touches the inner frame, I feel that it has been cut off and that it should continue in an arc to the left of the inner frame, so that it joins the top left. The only other thing that I am not sure about is the amount of space given to the hair and forehead of the background face. I have tried scrolling up to see what it looks like with some of the top cropped, but am still unsure as to whether it improves the composition. I find that what the crop does do is give more attention to the picture bottom left, and makes the larger face more of a "background" without dominating the image so much. It really depends on your intention here. The dimensions would obviously be altered with such a crop, too. Another little niggle, sorry to go on, is the shadow of the inner frame, which I don't feel is necessary. I can appreciate that Kim is trying to give an example of several of the types of manipulation she knows, all in one image. It works well, and should certainly be appreciated by any teachers or judges.
Pamela.
