Exceptionally well captured - the material perfectly offsets the form of the model.

Ha ha not telling - that just might give the game away!

Seriously we had 4 hours in the studio, with about 1 hour of make up and lighting setup, stretches, then I shot 5 different setups and came away with about 50 or so photos of which I am proud.

Thanks for looking, taking the time to comment and to all who contributed to this winning POTW.
