The legs of my friend's brother's girlfriend, she's an incredibly pretty girl and was more than happy to show off her legs.

Natural light coming from the window because one of the 250W of my lamp blew out and my other 500W light wasn't big enough.

I actually had several other ideas. The first one included a white girl (Such a racest challenge :P) with white foam on her face in a white bathtub though I couldn't get the light right. The second idea was a white girl with a white bonnet out in the white snow, unfortuanetly though it did snow the night before, the snow had mostly become mud and was melted in most places, plus we couldn't find a goddamn white bonnet.

Oh well, this'll do. Brightness/contrast plus deseturated a little bit

nice idea, but a little TOO washed out in places. would be good to see a little more detail on the umbrella

Great composition. The use of the umbrella lends an air of mystery to the photo. The only problem I have with this image is that some highlights are blown out. You get a 9 from me.

the couch is a bit washed out, but the lovely skin tone accomplished more than makes up for it. Although not perfect, it is great. 8

I like the concept behind this shot, but feel like there are a few more steps that would have really helped it out. The composition works pretty well and the midtones are nicely exposed. The couch (especially on the left) is somewhat distracting (as is the smudge on the wall), as is the interplay of the model's legs with each other and the umbrella point. The blown-out sole of the right foot leaves it lacking definition. Finally, the strap on the umbrella could have been left out of the image if only it were rotated 90 degrees. Overall not a bad shot, but many small details add up. Keep at it.

Great Idea but it is way over lit ive my laptop puhed right back to get s dekko at this image., how did you light this,? the best type of light fot this style is soft and full. bouncing the light off white ceiling and using a light diffusion filter would hsve worked wonders.
