The beautiful work of Ben Heine never seems to taper off or hit a plateau and this fantastic photograph is a perfect example of his excellence. I love the contrasting colors on the floral dress and the way they compliment the dense grass. The fallen leaves seem to be perfectly scattered around the eccentric model who has hair and make up that are just as flamboyant as the colorful dress itself.

When I usually browse through a stack of deviations, my eyes jump around in hopes to see something extraordinary. This is it, folks! Even the subtle vignetting draws the viewer's eyes directly to the center. This vivid photograph is surely one of the best works in my humongous collection of favorites.
What do you think?

The color saturation adds to this piece very nicely. I like how you portrayed the perspective. I know her knees are under the dress, yet I see her as though she's standing in a hole in the ground; like an optical illusion.

I love the shot, well done. One thing that i just find is that there are too many focus points; it kind of gives the eye too much to look at in one setting. But over all the colours are gorgeous and the pose is lovely.

I love the bright colours in the photograph!
I really like how you have made the red in her hair pop by adding the yellows from the sunflowers. The dead leaves on the ground are a nice contrast to how alive and bright everything else seems. It also adds some visual interest.
Beautiful photo!

Interesting. She appears to sprout from the earth herself and from the dress. The view and the style remind me of the way the video for Tom Petty's "Don't Come Around Here No More" In the sense that everything seemed to have abnormal proportions. Very cool effect. I like it! I like the way the shot's composed, the attention is drawn to the girl with the flower and everything seems to fade away into darkness around her. Beautiful. Her skin really glows in the piece and becomes a source of radiance. The shot seems to indicate a patient and timeless sense of waiting, where nothing is being wasted but each moment is being enjoyed, savored and appreciated. A truly elegant piece, well done and well shot!!! Michaelle is an amazing model!
