OOh, Lovely. It's a good thing she is wearing her red hand bracelet or else she would be naked!

Tell me more! I have a bw version, but this gets my preference - today, at least.

mine opinion, so biased...:) and do not be bothered by it- it is your photo...
Well the hand bracelet as mentioned - for me it kills the magic and draws unwanted attention.
The surface she is on is not the right surface... the attitude can be even better i think but requires another 100 iterations to choose from ( to see if that s the case) DOF changes....just to see  what happens- the horizon...?
etc... but very much like the form and attitude to start...

Thanks for your comments, Pieter. Good points, and absolutely worth thinking about. This is already one of several competing versions, as you might expect.

This is a *wonderful* subject. It's immediately noticeable that it's a naked woman in a pose, but it takes a long time to really understand what's going on. The composition and "mystery" is great on this one.

I think there are other options for post processing (high key, black & white, other crops, etc.) that should be explored, that might end up being better than this photo. But this is a great capture.

Thanks for your comments. I favour colour at the moment in order to pull the subject away from its rather sombre surroundings. The palette is pretty muted. I also don't feel high-key is my thing for this sort of work (which I do quite a lot of). Other crops are indeed possible and I shall have a look at those possibilities!

I also like it very much.  I agree with the comment concerning the bracelet.

The only thing that bothers me as you've titled this image is the crop seems overly tight for a landscape orientation. As to the flooring, something that doesn't tether her to such a hard surface and something that goes from ground to BG seamlessly perhaps making her "float" a bit more off the surface.

It's a fine shot, and I agree with Chris: the "horizon", while not glaring, is a little distracting.

Thank you for your comments, Chris. Well, it's all a matter of taste and what the intentions are, isn't it?. Of course it's not literally a landscape, and I don't like the word 'bodyscape'. So my title is a bit whimsical. The horizon has to be there because I am foregrounding the body and the apparent distance of the horizon is required to anchor the figure and create a sense of depth. It's architectural really.
