    Of all the nice backgrounds @ S. Monica, Venice and M del Rey.
    Why there?
    Picture is really small, I can't enlarge it.

    Hi Splashy,

    Why there? Truth is I couldn't walk all the way to the beach thru the sand.
    ( arthritis/rheumatism, aching knee , you name it. )
    The younger guys did go beach side with her.

    Thanks



    ( sorry, but as per agreement with her, I can only upload small file. )

    Hi Victor,

    I think the stark, gritty background could work if your model wore a pretty, etheral white dress... just a thought

    Sorry to hear that, but the effort it took to come down there must have been hard also then.
    If you're still there or next time, there's a wooden stairway on the side and or the selling booth on the sideway, they are very nice to use.
    Also going a bit south with the car, there's a parking space next to the beach with all kind of nice backgrounds.

    I like the picture, but next time be aware of distracting objects around the model.

    Nice image. The hands are leading the eyes downward and the sharpness decreases and distracts from the whole image. Wouldn't be so noticeable if it weren't for the ring and hands. And yes I know there are other attributes that should hold my attention.

    Hi Christina,

    Yes, that sounds like a good idea.

    The white dress will really make her stand out.

    Will keep that in mind for the next time we shoot.

    Thanks

    I love everything about the photo, very nice capture. That said their skin looks just a tad too red?

    Hi Christina,

    Now that you mentioned it, I guess you're right. It does look reddish.

    Here's a version with saturation adjusted down. Do you feel this is just about right.

    Thanks for your comments. They really help me learn better adjustments.

    Hi Victor,
    Yes, that looks just right to me (but please wait to hear from others).

    And commenting is helping me to learn, too

    Very nice picture, I would pass a brush over the legs and arms to diminish the reds a bit more.
    On the other hand, his skin could have been that color.
    Next time try to get her feet also.

    Victor, I can relate to that my friend!

    I forgot to take my medications before I went ashore in Corfu and only stayed ashore a couple of hours due to leg and back pain. I think that the climb up to the top of the Dubrovnik City Walls the day before really did this old body in. I actually did not feel good until we arrived at Istanbul several days later and my imagery (or lack thereof) reflects how I felt!

    Very stylish, indeed.. Gorgeous image of a beautiful woman in a beautiful setting...

    Now that I said that I think the photo is a wee bit crooked.
