Default Perspective Distortion (18+ nudity warning)

It's kind of cold now to be on the lake with a telephoto, so I decided to try my luck indoor with a super-wide instead:

Thank you...

I was quite surprised at how this image turned out as the model was only about 18" away(with an 11mm) from the camera!

There is just enough background to be somewhat distracting. Is she sitting on a motorcycle?

And I thought my eyes were bad...

(Or is it you simply can't look away from the lovely model...? )

Folding cot (or cart, maybe). No mattress. That will leave marks.

Well it definitely has a different look perspectively. The lighting is good (although I would have tried to reflect some light onto her left breast and foot), and there's no noticeable distortion.

Looks like a shopping cart to me. Your not hiring the homeless for modeling are you?

Just kidding. Great job, looks like fun.

Actually Wizzard0003 got the closest, it's more like a high-end cart (she was straddling the armrest):

Thank you for commenting... and I tried to incorporate all of the previous suggestions in this image while showing the "Directors Chair":
(a note to lomitamike, the left foot is lit quite well in the original, the light fall-off is caused on purpose by the On-One program that I used to vignette all 4 corners to direct the viewer toward the model's face and center)

Again, very nice lighting.

A very beautiful model and pic.

Now that there is a shot with a longer lens I do notice some distortion in the first shot.

I really like her upper body pose, hair and placement of arm. The cart is an unusual prop and her kneeling in it takes something away from it being a great shot. If her legs were extended it would add to the nice upper body pose.

Just my opinion.
