Well I and the rest of the viewers I'm sure, are glad that I gave you the inspiration to go out and create these images. But be aware, it works both ways.

Now thats just downright beautiful!!

Always a tough call to decide on B&W or color.

The models skin looks better in B&W (accurate skin tone is always tough with color) and the rest of the scene looks better in color.

It's a fine balance of beauty.

I like both.

Well Done!

Hey thanks!!!

You're right about the color especially in the forest. I have to crank up the blue and red channel as the sunlight was diffused by the green/yellow foliage. Here's one from the D800 on remote control:

Hey fellas ...

In my local creek I can't find any nymphs like this beautiful one .....
I join Mike with the B&W one [#2 above] as being 'real beaut mate'
I also like your posing - #3 is great to my eye, and the pp where you are fuzzing the outer edges to reinforce clarity of the subject

They're all great - and your model will no doubt be most impressed with additions to a portfolio

I like the 3rd one, because its from a distance it looks very voyeuristic, so does number 1 to a lesser extent, Its like your peeping from behind some trees or something, not sure if that's what you were going for but its what comes across to me

Hahaha... It was the waters which were too shallow for my kayak!

Just kidding. This was a more pleasurable shoot I guess, as there was no pressure in missing the shot, because this subject won't fly away for sure (or dive under).
It was also less technical as I don't need to worry about shutter speed for freezing the action or fast and heavy lens to achieve narrow DOF... Thanks

Thanks - Purely unintentional, It's just like what Ozzie said as I blurred the surroundings (and vignette the edges) slightly to bring the viewer attention on the subject that's all.

This D800 was set on a remote to capture 'landscapes' for its high megapixels, and I moved around with an A900 to get different angles (plus this camera's built-in image stabilization help me blur the water). The 1st shot was framed from a distance as I was doing her 'portraits' with the 120-300 f/2.8...
