That is seriously good ! I love the model , the pose and the expressiveness of her face - quite open to interpretation but with the potential of multiple stories - brilliant ! Nomination for me

Very nice pic. Also nominated, though it would be great to see a title for it!

If you really need a title its "Once Upon a time in Mexico".
When I first saw that girl on another forum I wanted to do something with Mexican/Spanish vibe. So I started to look for some appropriate setting (which wasn't that easy in Łódź, Poland). I actually found a good place that could mock Mexico but I've found this staircase as well. I loved the place - the lighting, the pattrern on the stairs everything. However it doesn't remind me much of Mexico so I decided to skip the title and just let you enjoy the photo and beautiful model. I wish I would do shots like that more often!

Yes, beautiful model, great lighting and shadow, posed well. It's just a shame about the camera. No doubt your new K3 will be a good fit for you. Nominated.
