Just realized how to solve the solution for the booty problem (ass-uming there is one). Photoshop, Pucker Tool.Tom
Pose. Think I know now. Think she should have turned clockwise some so her be-hind was in more silhouette And of course she still twists neck to look at camera. Unless of course she -wanted- to show off her booty!Tom
also agree gorgeous. The strobe use is remarkably simple yet gives stunning light. I also really like the soft shadow from the gown coming forward. Goes without saying the composition using curves is great. My only minor problem is her pose. It rather emphasis her rump, but(t) maybe that's what you/she wanted to emphasize. Yet, I like her look over shoulder so not sure how you could position her body to look trimmer.Tom
Nice, you have good acuity to find this little guy. I know you had very low light. But I would like it much better with all of the leaves in focus/sharp. Don't know the K-5, but perhaps you could have bumped the ISO two stops to 6400 and if so you could have shot at f11. Or f16 better still. I know, I know, then people get all excited about noise but I would trade noise for depth of field here.Tom
feilong: Forgot to mention the Panasonic CM1.. its not released in most places around the world but I think its the best out there as of now.
prediction - 3 years from now dpreview will not exist. (Too bad Amazon!!) Photography, except for studio work, will be by these toys. (Too bad Nikon, Canon).tom
