Lovely comp and colours Susan ~ how do you have enough time to get your pose right?? I love your hat! #4778144

Susan Fox 9/11/2007 12:50:30 PM

Thank you Doc, Dave, Joy, Martha and Susie!

Susie I don't always have time so I take a whole bunch in the hopes a few turn out. Often the photo is of me starting to get into place and not quite making it in time :-) LOL those end up being some pretty ugly photos of me. #4778161

Pamela A. MacBean 9/11/2007 1:50:00 PM

Very, very nice.....Does look like a painting..Simple and lovely effect of a summer breeze blowing within summer colors...Great job!!! #4778405

Les Rhoades 9/11/2007 1:55:50 PM

No tan lines....on this wonderful silky smooth photo. The pink scarf really holds this all together. OUTSTANDING! #4778431

Susan Fox 9/11/2007 2:06:26 PM

Thank you Pamela and Les!

LOL no tan lines Les because this was the one and only time I had a bathing suit on this summer. I am not a sun person :-) #4778469

Thank you Carol :-) #4781880

Pat Gamwell 9/12/2007 11:31:02 AM

Wowzaaa! If I had a figure like yours I'd probably NEVER wear anything but a bathing suit! Gorgeous self portrait series, Susan! They are ALL winners to me! #4782030

Nikki McDonald 9/12/2007 5:54:12 PM

I agree with Les--the lines of the scarf blowing in the wind are all important to the overall composition. They complement the horizontal lines of the sky, ocean, breaking waves, wet sand, etc. without simply repeating them. I also like the position of your hand and your slightly turned head. This figure (you) seems captured just at the moment when she caught sight of something that interests her and in my imagination that movement takes me beyond the image. Beautiful, Susan. #4783157

Susan Fox 9/12/2007 5:58:11 PM

Thank you Pat and Nikki!

LOL Pat! Thanks so much for the complement. I'm very lucky and got my Dad's skinny genes :-)

Nikki you always leave the best comments. Thank you much for such a lovely critique! #4783175

Michelle L. Frick 9/13/2007 2:49:08 PM

susan
I have no idea why summer breeze did not get recognized. It is a wonderful composition and beautiful colors. The only thing is that it the choice of the judges and often they do not pick images that we know are wonderful. I see alot of great images that are bypassed. If an image is compositionally good and technically good then the rest is up to individual tastes???? You know it is a great image so that is what you need to hold on to. #4794264

Sheri L. Lefty 9/16/2007 3:51:52 AM

Susan, another gorgeous piece! I love the green and pink together. #4797393

So beautiful. Almost surreal. I love the mix of new and old ideas.

There's something 1920's, New England Coastline about it. I can almost smell the lobster stand and hot dogs in the breeze.

Very special capture. -Laura Swan #5556007
