Hi Everybody

I have been out for awhile. This was just a fun idea. What better way to bond with your daughter then to ask her to climb into a storm sewer manhole.
"No rats" I lied ... "You will be fine, now act Glamourous !"

I think I went a tad crazy with the PP probably will get killed. I like it

Hope this at least stays in the 6 range

Thanks for looking

Not contrived at all. It's nice to see photos with thinking behind them.
It's certainly an interesting effect. Maybe if you added a bit of noise in the sky you could have eliminated that distracting banding. Also the model's hair looks really stark against the sky, making it look a little cut out.
But don't get me wrong, I think it's an awesome composition and I gave you points for the concept. Nice one.

welcome back coley .. its a brilliant image and your daughter is beautiful .. love the grunge and glamour combo .. its a great idea .. i dont want to imagine wots lurking underneath that hole .. cant think of anything that represents grungy more than a rat .. well maybe a fly .. they both bring disease and filth .. :)
looking at her expression again .. its brilliant .. !!
