On a sunny winter day, on a roof in Tel-Aviv. My girlfriend jumped a 100 times to get the perfect shot. Then some saturation and temperature changes to make the photo look a bit old.

Greetings from the Critique Club!

I really like this shot. The nice pop of the umbrella and the flat feet your gf managed to give you, and the strong shadow clearly showing the cleanness of the shot all very well done. The muted tones help her stand out. The composition is good and the bg has enough elements to add interest without detracting from your model. I would like to have seen her face dodged out a little, but otherwise a very nice shot. I jumped about 100 times too for my entry and it's a lot of work, getting the height and keeping your feet flat at the top of the jump. Hope you got your girlfriend something nice after all that jumping!

Out of interest, did you try to desat the pic? Curious as to how it may have looked in b/w.

Feel free to PM me

Great shot. love the colors. cute title. there's a little too much shadow on the model's face for my liking, but overall, this is a great image.
