Very primal.... very beautiful.
Hills are perfect. I want to know how you got her out there without any foot prints :-)
Very good composition. Crisp. Sharp. Atractive.
I too, would have loved the camera a bit right and also tilted down a bit to avoid the 50/50 horizon. Great idea, though.
Great work Love the feeling, love the contrast. I only miss the rest of the shadow.
I love this shot. I can feel the sun/wind in my head. Wonderful contrasts.

Such a feeling of freedom. Congrats.
Interesting composition, I like the repetition in the sand, and the simple, professional structure. I find the distant hills a little distracting, especially where the subject crosses over the distant mountains. Did you take any shots with the camera moved to camera right about three paces? Or were the distant hills positioned there intentionally?
WOW! Beautiful shot!
excellent composition! May be the central placing of the horizontal line is not optimal.

Graham: I know what you're thinking!;-) However, that's not the case! There wasn't any Photoshop removal, the sand was very hard, and she managed to go to her place without making any footprints!!!
Fantastic ! Just one very small regret for the composition. I like the position of the model in relation of the background but I think a strict centred composition would have been better
How? did she move there? I can't see the steps? are they "edited"?

Dave: I did it intentionally, I tried it from other angles, but, I like it this way, it looks more "natural".
State of the art. Congratulations!
she managed to go to her place without making any footprints!!!
...then she is an ANGEL!! I suspected that from the very first look at this gorgeous image... :-)
First class, as usual from you.
great setup - wow
Interesting, as most of your shots Nana. I´m not a fan of centered horizonts, but if you took it intentionally, it´s OK with me. Just one more thing: I miss her whole shadow on the sand...
Simply beautiful Just wandering how much would it be to have it printed and framed?
To Axel It is very simple, she was born there. LOL!
Great shot. The breeze blowing her hair back gives it a nice touch.
!!!!!!!!!! Nana. Great!
Opening up to the Sun High marks on originality, but also to pure beauty. Who'd care about the odds and bits of composition when the resulting image is as appealing as this one is?
Perfect, but... I guess it would had more impact if you shifted the background hills a little bit more to the right, avoiding overlapping them with the model. Good work!
After being in photo.net for over a year I have only just now found your work which is exciting to me as it seems to share much of the feeling in mine.
This shot is stunning - you can almost feel the warm wind across the flat open space.
Classical but nevertheless superb. I wonder only if more landscape on the left would not be preferable?

This is an exceptionally creative shot. I would like to see it in a fine-arts version, larger format and w/o the sharpening artifacts.
