For those interested, I had one homemade reflector (cardboard and aluminum foil) otherwise just ambient light. The PP was 1 RAW file developed twice, once for the sky and once for the foreground. Some dodge and burn, sharpening and other tweaks :-)
And thanx again for all you nice comments, views and votes;-)

Gorgeous tones and colors. I voted the first night but wanted to come back and comment. I really love this image. It deserves the 10 I gave it.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
09/15/2009 05:57:04 PM
No doubt about it: the style of Heida, excellent colors and mood but the pose of the model does not work for me. Still very good image. 8.

09/15/2009 05:37:59 PM
Love the dark mood. The sky is very cool. Her dress stands out so beautifully! 8

very good photo and very heida.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
09/10/2009 04:04:37 AM
Definitely captured the feel I get when looking at Heida's work - the clouds, landscape, model and coloring all say Heida to me. Nice work.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
09/10/2009 02:14:25 AM
looks very Heida 7

I think we have found the winner of this challenge. At least in the top 3 I hope. Very nice! (10)
  Photographer found comment helpful.
09/09/2009 08:29:10 PM
This would be on Heida's front page.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
09/09/2009 08:13:37 PM
It has all the elements of a Heida shot, but it doesn't have the same mood. I think that might be down to the lighting or perhaps processing.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
09/09/2009 06:15:51 PM
And we have a winner! You nailed it!!! 10
  Photographer found comment helpful.
09/09/2009 04:58:27 PM
Top Marks. Very close to her work. Should ribbon.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
09/09/2009 04:05:22 PM
Oh yes. You pretty much nailed it! So far, it is my top pick!
  Photographer found comment helpful.
09/09/2009 10:03:37 AM
I'm sitting here voting and thinking that it would've been SO cool if Heida had entered this challenge without saying a word to anyone. That said, this photo made me believe she has. But I don't think this is Heida because the sky looks to clean. I'm used to see some noise on it. And maybe I do, or that might be my eyes. Point is that I will give you a 10 and favorite this photo, and I'm looking forward to see this ribbon in a week or so when the voting is done. Good luck!

10
  Photographer found comment helpful.
09/09/2009 12:34:36 AM
My pick for red. You did great capturing Iceland (if you aren't acutally there) and the clouds are, of course, heida. The fact the model does not command a large portion of the canvas is also a heida touch. I'm glad you didn't put her up on the rock and try to copy heida's shot. I would have given you a 5 for that, but you get a 9.
