This was my first photo session with two naked females, and I must say I thoroughly enjoyed it!
Very little editing here.
Rotate & crop.
Boost the saturation a little.
USM.

I didn't even have to touch the levels or clone anything out.
Hope you like it.

Wow. Cool 4th again!
Thanks for all the votes and nice comments from everyone.

I had real problems choosing which image to take for this challenge.

Here are some other outtakes from the session.

I think this should have been in the 3rd spot but number 4's not too bad either. Very nice. Must have been really hard to choose which photo you wanted to use for this challenge. Looks like it was a fun shoot as well.

Excellent, I love it, esp with the water droplets... Really tasteful.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
02/04/2007 03:33:52 PM
A classic approach and very well done. It looks so much like a moon-lit landscape that a blue tint, instead of the sepia, might work even better.
