very good yellow toned colors
i like also the scene... :)

I think this falls very neatly into the category of "trophy snap," Erwin. Nothing personal but to me it is bordering on the worst kind of photography, the sort that gives the rest of us a bad public image.

The only purpose of this shot was to get a 'trophy' image of a woman in a bikini. Elements like composition, other people around her, and the wider context of the beach have been largely ignored. We can't see her face and it's obvious that she had no idea she was being photographed.

Again - nothing personal against you but I don't think this photo can teach us anything about photography, apart from what not to do!

Rew ;)

That would have been a great shot with just the woman in the picture.Because her colors are great and the position is natural.But all the the other half bodies including the soda can are a minus.Greetings Otto.

Nice shot! Nice body! Nice color! Who cares about the rest????
