Doesn't meet the challenge brief. Good luck. ;)

Great take on the challenge and very well done. The only problem I have is the choice of the whitish hat as it becomes the point of highest contrast. Everything else, the pose, your model, the setup, lighting......EXCELLENT.

I want to like this image a lot. The model is beautiful, the setting has potential, and the photographic exposure is pretty good given the challenges of the bright background. I think the one thing that bothers me the most is the subject's eyes. I think this would be better if I could see the eyes and the face was clearly the focus of the composition (rule of thirds, leading line, etc)

Nicely done. I like what you’ve done here. Evokes some wonderful feelings like an old movie.

hi. nice try on the nude theme. Not easy. nice compo. Tighter crop might have served the pose and model better. ease up on the light glow (or is it neatimage or air brush we see in the face?). nice location. cheers! 6

Interesting pose and lighting. But I'd prefer to see her feet too. Maybe if she'd tucked her legs in a bit more and angled her feet into the corner of the frame?

Nice nostalgic atmosphere to it, with the soft focus and subdued colors, although lower legs are a bit greyish. I think inclusion of her feet would be better.

nice image
a little soft on the focus IMHO
good luck though

Great idea, makes a pleasing composition, lots of angles, arms/legs/body/canes, pity the face and headscarf has such strong lighting, losing some detail

Pinup's are my favorite. I love this shot. 9
