    No you should just pass it on to a nice friend

    Right Guy ... : -)

    I forgot what nice skin tones that back produces.

    David, what lens on that first one? How much of a crop? What ISO?

    Here's a less cropped version which is more than 95% of the original. Shot with the 45-90 zoom at 45. Wide open at f/4.5 ISO 100. Levels and curves adjustments and plus 10% saturation bump... Not the same PP as the originally posted image.

    Actually David if you went in just a touch more on the crop , I think it would jump off the page . Try like 20 percent more but on the left an top only

    I like that last post the best! Pulls me into her eyes. The first one I notice the elbows first for some reason. All good images though, thanks for posting!

    One question, did you use an off camera flash on a pole or held by an assistant, or was it a strobe? Thanks

    I like the less cropped version, it would work well in editorial:

    Re: Daytona Beach Model Shoot

    Thanks all for the kind words and after seeing what you've done with the less cropped photo I think it's the better version too. This seems to be the most popular photo that I took that weekend. The studio asked for one to put on their wall which in my small circle is a nice compliment. As they say: "Even a blind squirrel finds a nut once in a while"
    @ Guy... I will give your crop a try. Thanks for the suggestion.
    @ Thomas... Profoto strobe with zoom reflector, no grid.

    Nice photo - I reckon the lighting makes the shot.

    I'm sorry, what?

    I agree with Peter; the lighting is really stellar.

    Re: Daytona Beach Model Shoot

    I think Woody recently got a shot at Yosemite after everyone else packed up their gear for the day. The guys I was shooting with don't stop even when it's dark out. Typically, I would have called it a day before this which just goes to show... BTW, I'm not sure about this male/female communication thing. My wife seems to know when I'm thinking about getting more camera gear even before I do
