nice image but I think it could use a little Levels adjust, seems a little flat to me

G'day Mike

Very nice shot - but for me I'd have preferred the model to be "worshipping the sun" rather than have her back to the sun ... to me it makes more sense of being unclothed

Regards, Phil

Glad you share the picture, feel lonely here posting alone

Actually the lighting is quite challenging like that in full sun, normally I would use a skim in a more confined area, but great try in the open!

Thanks for your replies.

Glad you don't mind the company NHL.

I must first say although I'm enthusiastic about taking good photo's I am content on being a minimalist with my photography. With the exception of occasionally using a flash or a reflector I like keeping it simple.

Nudes in nature is my favorite type of photography and I like to put as much emphasis on the interesting or beautiful landscape as I do the model (balance).

In this series the cliff in the background was the subject and the choice for this location.

Maybe in the future I'll take things a little more seriously but for now I'm just having fun.

Here's another in color.

Just like I thought... Very difficult lighting when you have the sun to overcome

I have to try this someday as we are nowhere near desert like that in the East

Edited 2nd photo. Bumped exposure +1. It looked a little dark.
