The hair across the face is a big distraction,if you don't mind me saying......

Welcome to EPZ Dori.

This is a really beautiful shot. The colours are gorgeous, and the timing of the girl running through the wheat is well done.

The light is behind the girl, so her face is a little dark, and this can easily be corrected in Photoshop. That hair across her face can be cloned out also.

I would also suggest a crop to more her off centre, to give the impression of her running into the frame.

I have loaded a mod with these adjustments, hope you find them useful.

Hi Dori, and welcome to epz!
Nice first image and great move putting it into crit.

I can't really add too much to Willie's crit, but have posted a different interpretation. I softened the cereal but kept the little girl's features sharp by using a layer mask. Also cropped the frame so she is running into the middle picture roughly from the third, and lightened her face of course. I rather like the stray hair myself as I think it helps show movement, so I left it.

BTW, let us know what you think of the mods

lovely shot of the girl playing in the field, the colours are lovely and i like the picture a lot,
just a couple of niggles in that there is a distracting strand across the girls face and the composition would be improved by placing the figure nearer to the top third to give space to move into the image.
best regards,
