LAST day of the challenge... no model... no idea...

Team for DPL is probably getting antsy because my other image this week will probably bomb...

Yet... they're still kind and encouraging to me.

*contented sigh*

I am so blessed with a GREAT DPL TEAM! (go LongShots! *grin*)


Anyway... here we are... Darling Daughter arrived... I asked to shoot her in her shower... she put on a swimsuit... and... she was so ... uhhh... chaste.


LOL!

"Can you give me 'sensual'?"

Her face! LOL!

She was so adorable while she laughed out loud in the shower. LOL again while I remember.

Anyway... We finally got to this.


(This explains the title. Although... it kinda reminds me of the Nike commercials in BW... "Just Do It".)

I hope you like it.

My team deserves it for their faithfulness in me and the rest of us.

Post Challenge: WOW! Thanks for the ribbon, folks! And a BLUE ONE!

I suspected this might be in the top ten... but never dreamed it would ribbon with a 6.5.

Yipppeeee!

Gorgeous light. And I really like the fact she isn't wearing a ton of mascara. I can never understand those shots where the model is in the shower wearing a ton of mascara... I mean, c'mon - who does that? Great job from your model, too!

Hmmm water is hitting her chin and no soap is in sight. I don't see why she needs to close her eyes.

Luckily I don't count dnmc in my voting!
