    Went out yesterday because I had a feeling i was feeling rusty since the last girl I shot was 8 months or so back. Had a lot of fun and shooting into the sun *gasp* blasphemy. :noes:

    I find myself doing it more than I would like to :mamoru: dunno why, but I've always really like the effect. Little to drastic for some but, hey that's what photography is about.... kind of.

    Should have some other stuff up later if anyone cares. Thanks for looking.

    Guess her age and win a free beer.

    I'm not a fan of the shooting into the sun, but if she was off to the left it might have worked.

    You're an idiot.

    age... 22?

    I like the shot. The bright sun is a great effect, the one little cloud is awesome, the reflections on the railroad tracks bring your attention through the rest of the picture...

    The one thing I don't like is her hair in her face. At this distance, and with this many other elements, I think her face should be plainly visible.

    But yeah, the composition and lighting is :bigthumb:

    Tone down the sun. It's taking away from the chick.

    I find the sun really distracting. Otherwise pretty good.

    I prefer when the sun is directly behind them, gives them a glowing effect. Either way it's an awesome shot, I just think that with the sun behind the model you get drawn in towards her rather than back and forth between her and the sun.
