Besides the obvious technical finesse, what I like here is that the image very successfully conveys 'Marissa's' mood, which is one of being in a space where she is completely at peace with herself and her surroundings:)

Great perspective. as if you sneaked up on her daydreaming.

@dogilicious: If there was any daydreaming going on here - no doubt it was me. Marissa is a splendid model and a joy to work with.
