    Like it lots. Not typical, which is good.

    Great processing! I would try to clone that flare in the hair out. But that's so up to personal taste. Good work!

    The glare is distracting to my eye and takes away from her beautiful face...but great job overall...

    I would leave the flare as it is. Maybe more of it next time if possible. ;)

    Since you asked, I am not a fan of flare. To each his own though.

    I like the fact the viewer can see the setting
    Grading/colour rendition is beautiful
    Pose and smile on the lady's face is so beautiful and natural
    I would add more flare (make it more of a feature) or totally reduce the flare (its distracting as it is now).

    All in all a wonderful photo

    I would crop the girl out and just leave the flare!!

    Regarding flare and light sources within the frame. I believe that there is always a right time and place for such highlights. Sometimes they add some meaning to the picture. Sometimes they detract. You have to know when to use it or keep it. This is one of my new topics I want to get to grips with after seeing examples on this forum.
