This was taken in a large cavern surrounding a lake. The lighting was very soft and diffused as this was taken around 10am. The editing was mainly dodging and burning and then playing with the saturation. I found the model, Kayleigh, on Model Mayhem.

The sharpness of the face and softness of the arms and legs makes it look like there is no connection between the face and the rest of the body.
