Some interesting posing and it looks like you did a good job of using the available light, these shots have a lot of warmth in them.

The first shot, the empty space on the left and the cropped legs on the right make the picture feel out of balance.

Second shot, again there's a bit too much empty space for my liking, maybe if you had angled the camera you could have filled the frame a bit more with the model.

Third one is really good, no complaints here.

Fourth one I like; I know I complained about empty space in the first two shots but here it's more extreme and looks more intentional. Makes for an interesting shot.

Fifth one I suppose you could nitpick about the shadow on her right arm, but who cares....wow. :)

Whew! What a babe! That must've been a fun session! I rather like the shadow of her nose, mouth and hair on her arm in the last one. Kinda cubist - shows her off from 2 different pov's.

Good stuff, Vince!

How did you ever get them so warm, was it from the actual light being that warm? Like 3 & 5 best, with 5 being my very fave. Gee, I wonder why? :wink: Not sure if I care for the crop on #4. Good job, keep em coming, buddy!

Thanks for your constructive advice. Can i crop the empty space a bit more to make it look better. Or is it better to take notice next time when i shoot this kind of photo's.

Vince ?

Great use of natural light,natural pose on the first is my favorite
Wich beach was this Zeeland,Zuid Holland?
The fun thing is from vlissingen to vrouwenpolder are about 20 or 40 km beaches. So you can walk from beach to beach. If you are known here then you could go to Hotel Westerduin and in fron of you are dunes with beaches behind it so you have nice locations to shoot photo's.

It was very low sun because of the sun almost was sunsetting. And i was looking at the color to. I could maybe need some advice to first set the right WB on that kind of time of day. I heared that some call this the Golden hour time of day. So maybe that is why the color looks so warm.

Thanks for your reply,

Certainly cropping after the fact is always an option, especially with the extra resolution of the D2x. It's always good to think about this stuff when shooting of course; although sometimes it's a good idea to not to frame things too tightly in-camera because you might have trouble cropping for certain print sizes if you do (ie 8x10).
