Another session that didn't turn out as planned. It wasn't until I'd got changed back into my comfortable clothes and looked at the pics that I realised I'd made a wrong choice of underwear. Something more Bridget Jones like might be appropriate to cover my backside Smile

Hey ho - the front view wasn't too bad though....... a bit more light on the right hand would be good but again I didn't realise that until I looked at the images. I'll add that I was perched on top of a small table to enable me to get a decent angle with the camera so just took loads precariously balanced and am not inclined to try again this evening Smile

It's all useful experience though......

Great Pins, nothing wrong with the underwear, just a good shot gets my vote.

Thanks everyone Smile

The knickers were fine this way round - the rear view left an awful lot to be desired - and not in a good way Smile Happily, for some strange reason, the pins always look ok - they don't look like that in the mirror!

Blimey Adrian - you're venturing down here? Take it easy Smile

Alison, wow, light is exellent, and i really like the way your hands add to to and frame the skirt. The pin sharp shoes are great with the focus slowely drifting of up the legs.

Thanks again everyone and thank you Pete for the HC Smile

I've just looked through the other shots and I think this was the best of the bunch - I won't bore you with any more!

That said, I'm thinking about white net next time?

This is so unusual and tastefully done that I'm not at all surprised at all the positive response. I really like the toning of the legs and also the way the body flares up to the top fringe like a delicate flower.
You certainly take self portraits to a whole other level.

Thanks again everyone and thank you Joline Smile I'm about to try a white version - if I can find the white gloves Smile I only have tacky gold shoes in the same style as those on here - they'll do I think - a tacky gold handbag would be natty accessory too - I'll add that to my shopping list!

Very classy Alison, elegantly taken.

White would be nice but without the tacky stuff, maybe just a simple pair of ballet shoes?

Congrats on the HC.

Thanks Stewart Smile The white attempt today didn't really work too well- there are one or two that might be ok but the black definitely comes out better.

The only ballet shoes I have are black pointe shoes - maybe I'll see if I can track down some cheap standard satin ones (they sadly don't come cheap and my dancing en pointe days are very long gone!)

Thanks again everyone Smile I picked up some rather nice black gloves in town this morning (reduced from 5 to 75p - I do like a bargain). I might see what I can come up with later on today......

So do I, I`m always browsing around charity shops looking for props, could be anything from woman`s shoes to hand bags, christ knows what other customers and shop assistants are thinking, not that I care Smile

Very good is this.

Once again I come back to this shot...........

And I see my comment appears to have disappeared (or did I not post it here?).
I LOVE this picture and although I have studied it quite a bit, I can't work out why it hits the mark so well with me.
The only thing that would make it better is being able to see it large hanging on the wall.

Unfortunately, as I am no longer an e2 member I can't give you my award.

Ah - I presume you didn't comment before Roy - all the others are still there - or maybe it's just personal Smile

Glad you, and everyone else, like/s it though. I plan to sort out some prints later today so might try a modest sized version and see how it comes out. Meanwhile I've got a gas mask to clean up a bit and try out Smile
