Wow, I fully expected this to ribbon. My only suggestion would be to have to model wear lighter clothes. I find her lower half blends into the shadows a bit.

I was using EX550 flash. Exposure was set for the background and then adjusted flash power to expose the subject

I like the color and mood of this picture. The lighting on the woman however makes it appear as if she wasn't on the beach. It appears to be two pictures put together via Photoshop.

Lovely sunset, I assume, colors, reflection, and pose, just wish that the model were closer, larger, more detailed.

Gorgeous colors and great job catching the sun as it's setting. My nit with this otherwise gorgeous shot is they way the surf line catches her right at the point where her legs attach to her body - when this first opened, I was trying to figure out what happened to her lower half, since the legs looked like a reflection of her upper body, not legs.

Nice match of the scarf to the sky, good composition.

Beautiful colors, great reflection on sand.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
11/01/2006 09:11:10 AM
Some brilliant color here. Wow! Very good details in the water and reflections on the sand. For some reason the main rocks seem a little soft/fuzzy around the edges. Good choice in selecting the scarf to use as it ties into the color scheme quite nicely. Overall, well done! Good luck in the challenge.

Beautiful sunset colors here. Interesting that the veil's coloring is similar ;) that's a neat touch alright. But the light on the model is a bit too harsh , perhaps if it was toned down just a bit? Also find the rocks distracting and with them out of the way, would've liked the model's head to look out but have the hands in the same position. Still, a fine shot it is.

Simply breathtaking... if I was a member I´d give this one a 10. I just love the colourcast of the sky which is then reflected in the wail.

love this shot, colour, contrast, and proportion, just go so well, over enhanced look may put some people off.

I'm starting to recognize some of the popular backgrounds. Very nice colors and rainbow effect fo the sunset. The matching effect on the scarf is a nice touch and of course is a good way to convey the Wind theme. 10.

A nice picture which could have been better IMHO with a little less pp... The colors are a bit to much and the picture is a little dark at the bottom. But, as I said, a nice picture and well composed.

Beautiful tones. I wish she were closer in the shot. Love the blue/yellow theme going on here with the POP of black.
