Arps from Hyderabad, India

Amazing shot... i like the color of her dress ..white as opposed to the blue of sky ... as the shadow of the stone is creating a bluish effect to her dress...Lovely

Fabulous shot Stephen, excellent frame with the rock, and immaculate white against that corner of sky. Worthy of any glossy fashion mag !

Eric Fry from Houston, TX, United States

What a great pose you've caught her in! It really brings an other-worldly quality to the reality of the rocks and mountain.

dj.tigersprout from San Bruno, CA, United States

beautiful and poetic -- i really love this composition with the rock eating up a '3rd' of the frame -- and the textures and lichen add a very captivating layer of detail! the light in the foreground here is also wonderful -- cool and dim in contrast to the starker, lighter background... and then the poetic pose of the model adds a final sleek and elegant beauty to an otherwise already wonderful landscape -- marvelous pieces, marvelous whole! wonderful work Stephen, bravo!

13 Aug 2008 10:15pm

@dj.tigersprout: thanks, my friend.

Evelyne Dubos from Le Mans, France
