I like the way the girl's body sets a strong diagonal from corner to corner, along with the blurred water. The smile adds a sense of fun, too. I'm not keen on the greenery she's got on her head though, it just seems 'odd' - lose that and you've got a great photo.

looks a bit uncomfortable to me. Her body language shows this too, leaving me with the feeling that this photograph looks quite comical...... not in a good way.

work on making your subject feel natural, in maybe a normal environment before attempting the ?? unnatural ??

Technically its a well taken photograph, for that well done. Composition just doest work to my tastes.

Agree with all of that and...

She looks like someone who is very cold and trying to smile anyway.

Apart from that I noticed that her left arm kinda disappears in a very unsettling way, making her look like an amputee or something. Perhaps she is, but anyway once I noticed that it held my attention and I found it difficult to look at anything else.

The exposure, location and model are very nice.

Hi All,

Thanks for your viewing and valuable comments. I'll bear these in mind for the next shooting. I also have some other poses of this girl and will post one more best pose soon.
