Ok, I cheated a bit. The umbrella is hanging from the ceiling and I was laying on my back. The image is flipped. :)

I reshot about 200 times until I got the symmetry right.. gotta hate a perfectionist.

Oh and I SPOT EDITED! LOLOLOLOLOL Well it was funny when Shannon said it. :P

Wow! Blue! I'm thrilled! Thanks so much for the great comments, guys. I really appreciate the warm wishes and kind support. You guys are the best!

Unfortunately, "symmetry" is misspelled in your comments, and the title should probably have been hyphenated as it's an adjective...heh heh. At least you can edit your comments...

Edit: Ooh, ooh, another typo..."ceiling"...OK, I'm done now.


LOL Thanks! :)

funny alan, cuz that is what I 'thought' it was tooo!!
  Photographer found comment helpful.
11/22/2006 01:24:56 PM
Well... the umbrella handle would be the butt crack (can't believe I'm saying these things...), and the curves of the bottom of the umbrella would be the top of her butt... and the umbrella itself would be a shirt. And for some odd reason, someone is standing on her lower back :)

I do need psychological help.

ROFL Seriously? I don't see it! That's great! :D

I predict a ribbon for this. I'll give you a 6 for working so hard. Is this idnic?
  Photographer found comment helpful.
11/17/2006 01:29:17 PM
Interesting concept and title! But the composition seems just a bit "unbalanced" for my tastes. I think I would like it better if a tad more of the leg was cropped at the top, or if there was more space below the umbrella.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
11/17/2006 10:58:48 AM
Clever and well executed. Could see this one on the front page at rollover! :D Good luck.

Most excellent. I wonder if this is Cindi. I could see this being her style and I know she's doing well. I think ribbon potential here. 9
