An extraordinarily strong composition, with the model's leg, torso and elbow forming a fine diagonal across the frame. If I wanted to be really niggly, then I'd suggest an older chair more in keeping with the character of the scene. Many congrats on the EC.

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].

The really remarkable thing about this photo, considering how exquisitely proportioned this young lady is, is that she does indeed look even more beautiful than usual in this photograph. I'm not sure I can quite rationalise how that could possibly happen. Perhaps I'm just getting old.

Anyway, a richly deserved POTW.
