Funny story, this was shot in a public park with people occasionally passing by in the distance.
I don't know what that makes me, but it was at least adrenalin inducing for the model.
I tried to aim for something mysterious but at the same time quite simple.
For me, life can be like that.

The original image was fine, but it didn't really compliment her body adequately, and in some way I found it a tad weird that she would be holding her arms up like that. I had a vision about rotating the image so it looked like she was lying on the leaves, but the composition looked off when I tried it out. So I swapped her body with another close up of her. The leaves were a nightmare.

Fantastic work! Do you ever license your images for paintings?

To be perfectly honest I have never thought about that :) I think as of now I would just be honored if someone wanted to paint it ;)
