Greeting from the Critique Club:

Well, if you are going to shoot between neck and knee it would be a shape not to shoot this! It is a very interesting bikini after all ;-)

I like how this is suggestive of a Bond movie and I also like how the play of shadows on her skin creates interesting lines - like the way we can see she is wearing sun glasses.

Body and bikini aside - I think we need to ask what added value your photographic choices made.... the most eclectic choice you made was the lateral crop - was this the full frame? I actually think this is a good choice but it may not be for everyone.

I think the coloration is bang on, it creates a feel-good sunny impression.

If I had one criticism it would be the story - or lack of it; your close crop constrains our view... I wonder how this would look in landscape orientation with more to her left and right; the inclusion of some environment context is often goos for story telling; of course you may have just spared us more sea!

I like how natural this pose is/looks. I also like the position and the cropping of the hands. I think that really adds something to the composition.
