I absolutely love the concept, the fact that her shoe colour kind of tones with her hair and the 'falling' leaves. But I think that the background image of the wood needs more punch. It looks to be a bit bland, and doesn't really do justice to the overall composition. I don't know whether you added the slight shadow underneath her, or if that's just a lucky colouration on the ground anyway, but I think it needs to be more pronounced. There's also a very slight halo effect round her bum and just underneath her back, which I think may be from cutting her out and adding her into the image afterwards? It's very, very good though, and with a couple of minor tweaks, could be very, very exceptional instead Grin

Thank you Tanya for your critique, it is very much appreciated. I have dealt with the slight halo and saturated the background a little, but not too much as I do not wish the detract away from the model!
I shot this yesterday, background firstly and then the model on two chairs, so the shadow is as it was with no manipulation. All I have done is remove the chairs and no cutting out was necessary due to the empty scene under the model layer.

Once again thank you for your advice.
