Nice pose and expression. Were you trying for the purple hue on her shoulder? Like the placement of her hand just under the water. Once again a stellar model. Great shot.

Thank you! The purple hue was from a gel I used for the shot, though it was more purposefully placed in other images from this series, particularly the image with the model surrounded by the purple fabric.

It doesn't get any better than this ! Also congrats to your team !

Thank you, Claude! We had a lot of fun with this shoot!

Stunning image !

Thank you for the comment!

Gorgeous shot, love the sharpness!

Thank you so much!

Amazing, Beautiful portrait sharp and clean !!!

Thank you so much, Ivan!

Congratulations Kendra!

Thank you!

I like the face. What spoils the photo for me is the distortion of the skin on the throat making it look like it belongs to an 80 year old. But that is just my opinion. My other opinion is that I wish my photography was a fraction as good.

Ah, you're right about the neck! The water definitely did distort that in a bad way. Definitely hard for me to unsee it now, haha. Thanks for the feedback!

fantastic shot!

Thank you very much!

Beautiful image, I like everything about it. Great work.
