Beautiful shot. Such vivid colour contrast and great composition. Really eye catching (and eye-holding).

Lovely sharp shot, the vibrancy of the vivid red dress looks great against that snow

This for me is one of those "almost" shots. It's a nice photo and well taken, but there are a couple of things on it that really bother me.

1: The shape of her left arm looks unnatural and uncomfortable.
2: I don't think the image "flows" particularly well with the tomb stones cutting across at the halfway point.
3: Where is the focal point? Her eyes? The Rose? The flower on her right breast? The writing on the stones?...

On the plus side, the tones in the dress and skin are wonderful, and, aside from her arm, the pose is really good.

These are only minor things, and it's a really good idea, so still worthy of a vote.

Danny

I have to say Danny is right here - those are things which just detract a little. It's a shame you can't turn the clock back to fix those things - because I also agree there are some pretty wonderful things about the image too. You've got a lot out of the conditions and the vividenss of the dress. This is much the better of the two versions you've posted.
