Challenge: Masters' Free Study III (Advanced Editing VII*)
Collection: 2014
Camera: Nikon D700
Lens: Nikon AF-S Zoom-Nikkor 28-70mm f/2.8D IF-ED
Location: Los Angeles, CA
Date: Jan 26, 2014
Date Uploaded: Jan 26, 2014

Model: Linda Valentino

Linda is one of the most beautiful women I know. And she is a pillar of our tango community. I've known her for close to 20 years now. This was the only idea I had in mind for this project. And she was only available today, the last day for submitting. Nothing like shooting under the gun.

Really shocked to see where this ended up, I thought top 10 for sure, its just beautiful from the lighting on her face to her pose and expression should have done much much better.

Well, I must say that I'm not surprised this is yours.
Your model is indeed an amazingly beautiful women.
Such gorgeous curves and so radiant. Combined with the stunning monochrome and beautiful light...
This was my only 10 for this challenge and I feel it is far underrated.
Great job Johanna!

Nice lighting and shadows. Her expession and closed eyes are odd and do not appeal to me.
