love it Frank, all she needs is an easel and a paint brush. Seriously, love it. The expression, the colors, the soft sharpness, her wild hair and the hang of the clothes. Love the beach texture - She fits, she belongs. This is Stupendous!

Great capture Frank !!! Can't help with any improvements, but would like to know how you determine (for yourself) b&w vs color? Sometimes I have difficulty and usually b&w wins, but not so much lately.

Sometimes the color just wins out for me Mr. Chinn, here the hair, sand, and skin just sort of won out...thank you for comment.

Gee this is a good one Frank! So much character and expression! Perfect angle too, IMHO, with great detail dropping off to just the right degree of blur. The color is terrific, don’t bother to convert this one, it’s classic beach colors that remind me a little of old film color, looks great.Don’t get rid of the blurry beachwalker in the background either, he/she adds to the mood of the image. Print this one, it’s a keeper!
