    Really nice skin tones on this one Dave. I like the subtle lighting.

    Thanks Warwick, I feel it may be slightly underexposed, but it's the better of the two I shot of that pose (the other had a poorly positioned rear flash and lots of flare).

    Thanks again, but I don't do "award" groups.

    David, this is a great shot of Christie. It really suits her. Nice accent on the hair.

    A little under-exposed is better than a little over. Anyway she is looking gorgeous in your shot and that's the impression that counts.
  • David de Groot said:
    Thanks Terence. You're right about the over/under exposure - a lot harder to recover from an over-exposure than an under.

    You sure your not on the Sunshine Coast!
    I mean look at the models you have! Like driving through Coolum!

    Thanks :)
    Well, Christie is from the Gold Coast, so not really the same direction ;-)
