I'd have to agree with Bynx. How bout some info on how you set up this shot?

The light on her is perfect.

Nature in it's best expression. Well done.

Well thank you everyone, especially to Bynx and Ordo for the great compliments
... as I was always afraid to get zing for posting this kind of pictures.

-> I've noticed from my previous shoot with Victoria that a nice bright day was not very good for shooting in this setting: For one there was hot spots where the sun shined and secondly the WB was an issue as the sun added a greenish tint as it filtered through the leaves.

This time around with Isabella the sky was cloudy with no direct sun therefore casting a better diffused light. I also had a Singh-Ray filter on to slow the shutter down giving the water a nicer flow and also capturing some of its mist!

How about a different take with the onOne's Monet painting treatment?

Pose looks forced and light is not even on her face and body. First one is much better.

I agree, also the patchy black areas comes from the onOne Monet effect.

The image size also doen't reflect the canvas texture on the picture which shows really well on a larger print.

The pose of the second pic I dont feel as comfortable with. Dont know why because it does look natural and her body flows nicely with the lines of the rocks behind her. Again your background is spectacular. Nice work NHL.

This is my favorite type of subject, nudes in nature. There's just nothing better.

Although they are both beautiful in every way I have to agree with the others that the composition in the first one is better.

Thanks for sharing these incredibly beautiful pics.
