A particularly windy, summer day out in the desert. The Santa Ana's living up to the reputation...

    Great photo and feel. The skin tones look perfect and detailed, yet give me feeling that the skin is soft to the touch. Good tones and good in single color. You captured a great moment of this model. Thank you. Bernard

    Very good shot Derek...the only draw back is the position of the model because the tree branch or whatever it is somehow distracting...may I advice you to be more careful in placing your subject in future before clicking or correct the mistakes after seeing the result on the LCD display panel. I am telling you from my experience that costed much for me. Apart from this the image looks really nice.
    Best of regards

    One thing I like about this, is the naive, almost innocent feel to this. There is a slight Native American texture to the composition that gives it a lot of strength. Excellent.

    This image is so magnificently beautiful ~ I keep coming back to admire it. You did an superb job on the skin tones, contrast & gradients ~ The model is simply gorgeous & a perfect choice for a shot like this, with her somewhat innocent 'girl next door' look & her beautifully contoured body. I really can't say enough ... Kudos :D

    Christopher Griesé said (7 Dec 2010):

    In response to Partha's comment above about the branch, yes, I agree that it's hurting this shot. However, it looks like a very easy retouching job to simply remove it from the image, or realign it to a better position. I would be happy to do that for you, if you don't know how yourself, since I love this image so much :D ~ PM me if you want ...

    Thanks for the great comment! Im surprised the branch draws that much attention. Since it doesn't actually intersect with her body it doesn't bother me at all.
    I find it rather complimentary and adds a bit of symmetry but I love the fact that people cared enough to tell me, I really appreciate that. Im pretty adept at PS and I could remove it if I wished but I don't see the need. :)
