Nice visual image; IMO, the legs would look better a little sharper. Still like the image a lot.

WOW nice legs but to the photo... good diagonal with legs, nice depth of field with bathtub slightly soft, 3 glass ducks add to a good background, need more drops of water if you're going to have the single drop midway on her right leg. White distracting splotches of the back of the bathtub above and halfway between knees and feet. Lighting slightly harsh on ankle and toes.

Good idea for a shot, and nice legs.

This is one of the few Pastel entries I keep coming back too. This soooo has a feel of a beach house down on the shore. Soft morning light comes through the window to gently light the powder blue of the tub and the soft cream tones of the paneled wainscoting. The wall has a sea-foam hue -soft grey with a touch of sea green. The mood projected is soft and soothing. I love the ducks in a row on the ledge. As much as I love the addition of the ducks which add a playful touch I wish that they had the added extra touch of being filled with a pale yellow soap/bath gel. Not only would it strengthen the rubber duckie in the bathtub playfulness but it would have further strengthened the pastel hues by adding one more. The sharpness and lighting on the feet are not the tack sharp that they could be. I also love the curve of the tub and that all we see are the legs - the anonymous nature makes it very easy for one to project oneself into the relaxing scene. As I said this captures a mood & feel of relaxing in the tub by the beach as well as having soft pale colors - it is very pleasing the to eye that I have come back to look at it several times which is why I am adding it to my favorites:-)

I like the idea of this shot, but I would like to suggest a few improvements:
1) There isn't really anything that is well in focus. Maybe using a shallow depth of field you could have had the legs in focus while blurring other parts
2) The lighting is a bit too cool for me. This scene screams soft/warm light like from candles or a setting sun
3) Where is the water? (and maybe bubbles)

Hope this helps.

Delightful. There is a peace about the lighting that is very inviting.

I love this... but need at least a glimpse of water to make it 'real'.
