Beautiful work, simply beautiful. I adore the colours in this, there is a sort of blue tint to the image which really adds to the seaside setting and which compliments the dress perfectly without overpowering it.

The dark corners of the photograph are great and really add to the image, almost framing the woman and sea, but unlike many photographs which use this effect I don't think it has the sad and grim effect but rather the opposite. Almost as if the woman's pure white tones of colour are pushing back the dark.

And lastly the woman's pose/positioning is perfect, her dark hair is blowing in the wind in the direction she's looking, as though peering out to sea or waiting for somehow to join her. Also the dark shadow is a nice addition too. As I said before, there is only one word that describes this, beautiful.
What do you think?

Love this song by the Decemberists. Its mood is perfectly caught in the shot.
A beautiful song - a beautiful picture. :heart:

I don't actually know the song, I chose the title because it fit the mood of the image ;)

interesting textures. I like this, it's not one of those "typical" DA pics of a girl on a beach. It's more than that. Very expressive.

As a some sort of photographer myself I think is even harder to create the feeling rather than to capture it!!
