  2. Now those are a couple of really pretty photos! Pretty model too! Kinda reminds me of something classic. Beautiful job too!
  3. Awesome. I would hang a big print of the second photo on my studio wall!
  4. Excellent! The second one is absolutely stunning. I love everything about it.

    Thank you Dianne.:smile:

    Thank you Charles. I'm definitely printing that one. Hopefully I'll be able to get it juried into a show.

    Thanks Anthony!

    The water is real. No small feat getting the model out there either. The rocks under the water were super slippery and it was near dark. I had the MUA hold my SB600/Sto-Fen while I moved around on the rocks looking for the angles.

    Thanks for the kind words Doc. Honestly, I'm extremely happy with the 2nd image which is almost never the case with my work. :smile:

    Thank you very much Gary!

    Thank you John!

    Thanks Laura!

    Thanks Frank. Good eye, it's the same place. I envisioned this shot a year ago when I first found the location. The inspiration comes from the line in a Hendrix song "......her fiery green gown sneers at the grassy ground." The song is "Bold as Love". Hendrix painted such amazing pictures with his poetry. :smile:

    I thought it was the same place

    and you are right about Jimi
    your abandoned hospital series brought a line of his to me

    ...a broom is drearily sweeping, up the broken pieces of yesterdays life..

    The first shot almost makes the model look like a doll! I had to take a closer look to make sure that my eyes weren't playing a trick on me!

    Second photo is amazing, it gives that feeling as if she's running off onto a beaten path, with the diverage with the grass was more defined it would really give even more of a story to tell!

    Fred, The first shot is nice, but the second needs to be on a wall or in a magazine. It is outstanding.

    Thank you Steve.

    Thanks Keil.

    Thanks for the kind words!

    Thanks Mike. I'm submitting the 2nd image to several juried art shows. One of the shows is run by a magazine which will also publish the works. We'll see how it goes.
