encounter in the suds

Model: Machaon (2009)

Finally - a good representative view of our sudsy playground for this series. The setting is lovely - on a high perched deck surrounded by trees and a terraced garden. Bubble, bubble...

[tomorrow]: we end with my favorite image from the series...

This has been a fun series... but I'm sure it was deceptively difficult to shoot.

@David: The shoot wasn't difficult at all - in fact - we had a blast. The challenge was in post-production as with the exception of this one image - all of the suds were blended in behind Machaon to create the illusion of her being in and on a cloud. But I love working solutions in Photoshop so even that was fun! Thanks for the visit, David.

I like very much this one, not only for the beautiful bathing model but also for the yellow presence of her visitant and the space where the tube is situated, very good.
