What a lovely day to go for a swim!
We took the car, we took our toucan, Carlos, a bunch of useful things and we left for the sea... or did we?

-

Anyhow, thanks to my beautiful model, who swim-suited up while it was 10C (50F) outside.

Hope you like it,

Cheers!

Catherine, I'm so sorry I didn't answer to this, I was sure I did!

Not Iceland anyway, but Campo Imperatore - Abruzzo (Italy) :)

Not sure what voters were thinking, but this deserved to be a top 10 at the very least. Wonderful entry

I thought this had the BLUE, for sure.

Brilliant.

BRILLIANT, I say!

totally underrated!

Well, I am shocked for you. I expected this to be in the top 5, and most likely a ribbon. This was one of my top picks for the challenge, you got a 9 from me.

Very surprised to see this not finish in the top ten.

Thank you all for your comments :)
I truly was (and still am) really disappointed by the score, but I'm more than glad to see your appreciation here.

Hope to do better in the next challenges, cheers!

I was stunned to not find this on the front page today. I was your '10' vote. Way underrated, great photo!

i thought this would be top three for sure. Highly underrated.

I gave this a 9 and had it as my #1. Can't believe that this didn't even break 6...

I agree. Word for word.

Funny and well shot. I wish the title were not so off-putting with the language. Would have scored an 8, but gonna pass.

That's pretty funny. This would have been a really good shot even without the model, but the humour makes it stand out in the crowd. I do find the legs a little overdone on the smoothing though, but a great shot overall, one of my favourites in the challenge.

This would probably ribbon. Great take! Very different. The location is perfect.

Brilliant!!! I just hope someone drove past you and you got a shot of their faces.

Colours are working well in an image that's going to be a contender.

Thank you so much for doing something above and beyond the obvious!! Nice shot, nice scenery, but you and your model really added to the scene.

Blue ribbon! Awesome in every way. Great photo.

Hahahahaha!

I predict a shiny new ribbon.

Bumping up. This is so funny and creative.

There seems to be a lot of work done to her rear end. My bet is that her rear end was just fine before it was overly smoothed and flattened.
