Thanks for those comments - well, I'm assuming dudler's comment was not a criticism! This is the wreck of an iron steamboat that ran aground at Caloundra (Queensland) in the 1890s. It keeps changing in appearance as sand is swept up onto the beach by the tides or dragged back off. Plus, of course, the ongoing corrosion makes it's own changes.
I'm sorry, but for me this represents a lost opportunity.
Lovely shot, very natural appearance. Personally I would have shot it on an angle with her head top left and tummy bottom right. Her forearms are pretty much at right angles anyway.
So simple, so beautiful. Just love the pose and the general "feel" of the image. Proves my point that true glamour is more about what you don't see than what you do see. Without the shrug this would have been gratuitous and tacky - covering her has raised the image to the top of the tree. Seductive with a capital S
A lovely looking girl, but the photo doesn't quite make it. I guess you used a flash - it's left a harsh shadow of her nose on her cheek and one of her face on her hair. Diffused flash - ideally by bouncing off a wall, ceiling, reflector, etc should soften the effect. Or use a reflector to bounce light into the shadows.
Beautiful as many of your images are - and I have voted for some of them - I'm afraid this doesn't do it for me. I feel that central stamen is positioned wrongly. If it could be directed along the "leading" diagonal from bottom left to top right the whole dynamic of the image would be changed. Even if all you did was alter the crop you could improve it: try cropping approximately 25% off the top (just above the deep shadow and add a similar amount at the bottom if it's in your original image file.
