A very dynamic pose, and the expression is to die for! Great selection from this shoot, I think this image pops and really demands attention (in a good way). I love the wet sand as well, it looks very smooth and adds a soft dream-like quality to her environment. A paradise indeed ^^
the model is excellent in the scene and light and color are very good. But the background! the angle is not proper and the sea looks tilted. The sea surface must be normally horizontal. If you decide to stress this rule you must have a good reason for it (interesting dynamics or emotion in the picture). I suppose there are some artefacts from photoshop over the middle of the body. As long as I look at the girl the picture is really great (and the model is greater ), but my eyes feel uncomfartable considering the far background. I think this is correctable with a little bit more photoshop. best regards V.P.
In this one i know the horizon is not straight but i wanted her shape to be similar with the mountains on the background and if i cropped it and straighten it i would lose that..Thank you for taking the time commenting my work..i hope i read more comments from you
straihten the horizon and then with photoshop deform the mountains! the tilted sea surface kills the photograph (for publishing, microstock or hanging on the wall), you must be consequent. First the sea and afterthat the mountains! Its not a painting its a photograph
I think the off-kilter alignment adds to the photo, not detracts from it. Too much balance will loose the edginess that draws viewers in. Besides, it is as you said: a photograph not a painting. In paintings you have to manipulate the environment, because you are the creator. In a photograph, the environment exists in its true form and should be appreciated as such. Food for thought!
