Its a very pretty piece. I say pretty because as far as catching my eyes go, it is at the middle of OMG and OK. I love the color and the background. Although there is a lack of vibrance in the picture as a whole, i don't think that it would have made much on a difference in terms of impact. All the element in the picture work well together. The blurring of the grass is perfect. Maybe its the model that is the problem. I find it hard to be captured by her expression. It is almost non existent. What is she trying to say, or is she just saying nothing? All in all a good work.
What do you think?

How do you afford such models and keep under $50?

interesting, but i don't understand something: how in the world can a photo cost money? and even $50 or more? 0_0

The 50 dollar costs I am referring to is the cost of producing the shoot that the images come from.
