Thanks - That's likely to happen when one does a naturescape shot with a 300mm f/2.8

Ditto to what Eddy said. The first picture is my favorite.

Thanks - I've added a beauty dish with a gold reflector to enhance the natural color...
(i.e. I brought my Elinchrom outdoor on Vagabond Mini power)

More lighting stuff.
Did you get a behind the scene shot?

I will next time...
Kind of hard with a long lens to have a behind the scene shot (and my WA Sony was on a remote controlled tripod in front of the light)

The BRX500 was setup with beauty disk on a gold reflector and a sock cover to diffuse the light.

Normally one would shoot next to beauty dish facing the model. In this case however the light stand would have been right in front of the camera when I was that far back with my 300mm so I placed the light outside the FOV of the camera and slightly pointing down:

o On the 1st image to the left, check the shadows under Asia arm and dress
o Then on the right of the 2nd image, see the shadows under her open blouse?

Can't remember exactly but the camera was set to shoot the landscape at about -1 to -2EV (to account for the varying lighting condition) with the beauty dish filling the rest...

Here you go: Butterfly

The sun was from the left so I used the Elinchrom (on Vagabond power) to fill from the right

The sunflowers were kind of wilted so we decided to use them as a background rather than closed up shots:
-> Caroline then moved forward closer to the light in the tall grass for most of the shoot thereafter...
I also needed to lower the beauty dish a bit so it was more front facing than as pictured:
