Well I hope I catered for the DPC taste here. I even spelled colour the wrong way :)

Model: Stephanie Wilkinson.
Thanks to Alison for being my assistant, VAL and just awesome.

I got stuck in Bermuda for a week longer than planned, with all those cancelled flights, otherwise I'd have been in Luxembourg for this challenge. No exciting beaches there.

I used 2 580EX flashes next to each other from the left and front with 1/2 CTO gels as main light, and a 480EX from the left and sightly behind the model as rim with a full CTO.

1/400th? I take it you were on high speed sync where the flashes pulse?

Nice soft light and the backdrop is spot on - Maybe the pose is just a tad awkward but not too much to spoil the shot.

Fantastic lighting, strong composition and beautiful model. All elements of a winning shot - but, there is some really strong competition in this challenge so I don't think this will ribbon, but I hope you get a high mark and finish well. 9

Nice model and composition! The sidelight over the modell looks a bit too arteficial though, in combination with natural light otherwise in the picture, I think. Still a very nice photo.

I'm going to guess ' . substr('//www.dpchallenge.com/images/user_icon/21.gif', strrpos('//www.dpchallenge.com/images/user_icon/21.gif', '/') + 1) . ' dmadden...for the locale, the model and the lighting. Hotness!
