    Strengths:
    Rich blues, the face on the left gives the photo an edge.
    Suggestions:
    A closer crop, cutting out the black- white body could still leave a dominate blue subject but not pull the eye off to the right.

    Strengths:
    The montage effect is very well executed and the lines are great. The dramatic blue "flare" near the bottom catches the eye then leads it up to the narrower part of the gown. Then you can wander around and take in the most interesting and nicely contrasting background images, then back to the gown - very well done.
    Suggestions:
    They say you shouldn't "amputate" an arm, as happened here with the zebra person, but he's not the focus of the image so it's much less of a problem. Otherwise, no suggestions.

    Strengths:
    Great unique composition. I really love the intensity of the blue dress cascading like a waterfall over the table . The richness of the blue dress interacts nicely with the mauve tablecloth. The face of the woman in the background adds emotion to the photo. Its as if that dress has some meaning to her.
    Suggestions:
    The drawing of a "human zebra" on the right is a distraction and does not add anything to the picture. It should be cropped out or edited out of the picture in my opinion.
