Irene, this is gorgeous, and so angelic! The beautiful vibrant colors add to the reality of emotions, while the flowers add the mystery of a child's innocence of their world. Composition and lighting are excellent... Your layering and editing has truly produced a masterpiece with perfection! 8o) #1301859

Irene, the work you put into this is flawless, so professional. And everything goes well together - the tones, placements,and mood of innocense and serenity. The pink on Lily's attire from the sunset light adds the the magical touch. #9745497
