[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Last shots in Mexico,

The day was pretty grey. I did not take many photos of her. Of course Martine wanted a few ultimate shots.

Late in the afternoon, I choose again the salt water pool for the session and the ocean as the background.

A touch of color in the grey. Note I slightly desaturated the background to increase contrasts.

See the Map for the our location.

Salut Robert,

Tu as fait du bon travail en post traitement. La désaturation du fond est très bien maîtrisée et discrète. Parfois les gens ont tendance à aller à l'extrême et font du font un pur N&B (décoloration total). Ici au contraire tu as su faire resortir un peu la froideur relative du temps. Tant qu'au reste des couleurs que l'on retrouve dans la peau et les vêtements de Martine, elles entrent très bien en contrast avec le fond. Bravo


Robert, NO ONE should complain about this shot. What a beautiful composition and model! All factors are as well as could be, unless you could place your model in a studio with studio lighting and a killer background. Otherwise, WELL DONE!

Cheers, JoeGoff, Louisville, KY

"Hi Martine,"
Beautifully composed Robert and you have a very exciting model with Martine...
The wind blowing her hair is good, and you should both be very pleased with this one
