Very lovely. I don't know if it's old art school taboos coming up but
should you
ing subject either closer to the top or to the bottom?
My teachers' ghost is standing at my shoulder saying "Don't put her
in the middle, Don't put her in the middle".
Does it look odd because we've been taught to think middle centering is
odd, or what?
Joe and Erika, I need your help on this one.

Wow!! I love it. Very inspiring! She reminds me of Persephone enjoying life before Hades kidnaps her.

It's lovely, but Elizabeth you have a point. The landscape is very beautiful, I would have tried a more natural pose from different angles. I still like it though, Erika

I do agree with Elizabeth about the positioning. It is a very beautiful shot, but moving your subject and experimenting with foreshortening would increase the interest. Everything seems to be just a bit too centered.

I do love your work Randy.

I like the way the girl is laying on the log. I really love the way her hair is flowing down from her head.
Perfection is what drives an artist.
The inability to achieve perfection is what creates a work of art.

I like the photo to be sure, you might consider a tad off the top to remove what appears to be tire tracks as they distract from the overall effect. I did some nude photography back in the day. Have you ever run across the work of Andre DeDienes? You might have to check my spelling on the last name, but he had a book titled "Sun Warmed Nudes" that your work
ings to mind.

I'm sorry, but while the concept is good, the execution, in my opinion, needs work. The figure is, to my eye, too obviously superimposed upon the landscape instead of a part of it.

Depths and perspectives are in conflict. Use distortion and skew tools to affect integration.

Digital media qualities are not equalized. Try the film tools.

Light angle and shadow need to match.
