I do like it. It works compositionally, and the subject matter is curious. "What's that frilly dress hopping logs in the woods?"

It needs something tho. Like more 'weight' in the lower right corner. This could be accomplished with something more interesting than the green field, or an expanse of green field. (field in this context being any expanse of color)

Part of the visual interest in the picture is the juxtaposition of the skirt in this environment. But in the square format it's too overwhelming in the composition. Too 'top heavy' for my taste anyway.

But no, I do think it's a visually interesting picture -- and I don't bother commenting on too many picture posts. I don't think you're crazy

Also, on a minor note, the eye is drawn to the hand, and it looks a little blown out.

Quick and dirty 'shop to test my theory:

It very well could be her skin looks blown out. She has an issue with collagen in her skin and it makes her sort of glow. She is very difficult to photograph and so far I seem to be doing the best job at it, lol. So do you think a wider or taller version would work better?

I thank both of you very much for your input

Fea Forest

Very interesting, my first thought was of trying to catch a Fairy in the forest.

The still quite peace of the forest contrasted by the quick and colorful movements of a Fairy.

Interesting composition!

What do think about having a dropped off white high heel shoe down in the clover, right corner?

I like it, but maybe not as a stand-alone work? devs66 mentions the "catching a fairy" theme and I really think it fits here. I'm thinking, and I may be totally daft, a series on this theme would be really quite good. Each shot only catching a "glimpse" of the model, different parts of her in each shot, so you have to put them all together to "catch her" in her entirety.

No idea if that makes sense at all, but sounds like a fun shoot.

Artistic shot and love that contrast between colourful skirt and the natural log. Good composition there. You got a very good eye for things around you

How about just showing the skirt with a bit of the feet showing? Leads the eye more than the hand.

Wow, some very cool and interesting feedback! A series does seem very possible and I love the idea. It does sort of remind me of a fairy so that is a cool idea too. Love the shoe idea. funny thing is shoot was totally on the fly and unexpected, lol So with some pre planning I can see some really interesting results And I think I will have to see if I can make this happen soon Thank you everyone

I have to agree about the 'fairy in the woods' idea. And I love the composition as it is. But I do think a series would be stunning.
