I've only ever passed through Naples [it doesn't have a great reputation], so I was surprised to see such a cracker of a shot - on a gloomy day at that. Superb composition and tones too - I expect it would look good in mono, but I can't help feel it would lose some of the atmosphere the blue tones are giving this.
I think you meant 3.25pm - in the afternoon (the EXIF says a 1/60th exposure!). I suppose this looks unnatural because it is unnatural - a fair bit of post-processing going on that's accentuated the dark sky against the sunlit landscape - an effect that's not so uncommon in Yorkshire. (Unless of course you've dropped in an entirely different sky...)
At first glance I thought it was blown [looking on a mac], but a bit closer scrutiny shows there's a highlight at the bottom centre of the dress that's considerably brighter than the body of the dress and I'm sure the detail in the dress comes out a lot more in print/larger size.
I'd agree with Phil - the composition is very effective. It gives emphasis to the quite striking main subject and still preserves a bit of context and narrative with the gaze of the background figure.
As others have noted it's rather more usual to see this model wearing rather less [not that I'd go out of my way to look for that sort of thing, you understand].
It's a shame this is so small because I get the feeling I'm missing an awful lot in the detail. Is that a pterodactyl or dragon in the distance, for example?
