Blue Dress
Lens: HD PENTAX-DA 16-85mm F3.5-5.6 ED DC WR Camera: K-5 Photo Location: San Diego ISO: 80 Shutter Speed: 1/180s Aperture: F5.6 




Fill strobe on the right side (model's left) just behind the camera with a beauty dish, IIRC. Can't recall the model's name, the memory is the second thing to go. Looking for comments, anything I could/should do to improve the photo?

Edit: Model's name is Jessica Fae.

If the intended subject is indeed the blue dress (as implied by the title) then you did a great job, well done.
The bright green of the grass and the blue correlate nicely and draw the attention while the darker skin tone of your model in combination with the somewhat darkish sky add some context without drawing too much attention away from the dress.
It might would have been interesting to play around with the flash, I think you could have added a little more light though.

Thanks for the analysis! Later photos in the series had stronger light, but the strobe was far away in this one to facilitate capturing more of the background.
