Killer model!

look at you still shooting for DPC! Love this - I think this is you as the model too, no? I'd bump my vote by +1 just for the difficulty. :-)

Lets shoot! I've got a whole houseful of teens that love babysitting cute kids. Or maybe he comes with - that always makes it more fun.

Nice. Wish the contrast was just a tad stronger though but very nice capture. A 7

Although centering is a no-no on DPC, I think it might have helped this image. If the model was a little bit to the left and the vegetation on the right excluded, this would be a lot stronger.

The scene really complements the yoga pose. I wish she was a little sharper though.

great image. I had something like this in mind myself actually. I'm curious where this was taken as it seems somewhat familiar.

By comparison to an earlier image, the author used the natural shape of the background to form and compliment the model's posture and presentation. The sharp angles of the background perfectly match the model. The only way to improve this image would be to have the model face the camera using the same posture. Image conveys the meme of yoga as a positive life style - strength, grace. Well done.

A tighter crop on the girl with the mountains slightly out of focus might be more interesting.

I love yoga. This is a nicely composed shot, I like the way the reeds wrap around and fill in the frame a bit. Very peaceful.

I think i would like it more if there was more colour in the sky.... but you can't control the weather.

nice model btw

I would have maybe played around with increasing the saturation to bring out some colours
