Award Shortlist   

Perfecting the art of table stands

By Richsr
Many thanks for all your comments on my last upload from a while ago. Thanks to Natureshaven for the GEA, and Ugle, lonely_oryx, sherlob, Deep_Bhatia, tynnwrllunian and Alda, for their User Awards.

A busy few weeks so not had much time for image processing but this weekend managed to get some time to do some.
Its often interesting with movement and action shots in the studio, some times the first shot is the best and you can't better it, no matter how many times you try. Which was the case with this shot.
The timing was spot on with the hair and leg all making the shapes I wanted.

Thanks for looking
Regards Richard

Fantastic, I can imagine the jubilation when this shot worked and worked so well.
Tremendous idea Richard, the model has come through in a difficult pose with that hair in exactly the right position.

Tremendous image which feels very elegant and 'fine art' due to the sharpness, simplicity and mono beauty. The pose is very interesting with her balance creating tension while the hair direction adds a surreal touch, especially with it's beautiful illumination. The lighting overall is excellent, modelling her muscles very effectively.
