    I like the pose and think you did a great job with the light.

    This is excellent. I think having just the model and the sky, and nothing else, works very well. The triangular arm contrasts well with the round shape of the face, it could well be representative of a logo or similar. And, some of the colours in those clouds compliment the skin tones wonderfully.

    Seen on your photo stream. (?)

    Thanks :)

    Thanks Jack, I was uncertain of the pose, but it was worth a shot at the time, and it does seem to have come out ok.

    Different eh?

    I could but I think Astrid might be more interested in knowing that ;-)

    Well I'll be...

    Unconventional but exceptional David. One of my favorites from that meetup. Compliments on the lighting and skin tones, they are simply brilliant and the sunset sky adds a wonderful backdrop. LOVE this
