I just love this outtake from the impromptu photo shoot...

    LOVE the photo. Oh my gosh. Especially with her Henna like that. Mmm.. Praise God for India. And this beautiful representation of an Elizabeth.

    This is so beautiful. Loving the "upside-down-ness" of the image, and teh delighted smile, and the henna.

  • James Hanlon PRO 9y

    Yes - clearly bliss!
    Great composition and perspective!

  • Wanda Larson 9y

    This is a great shot...I absolutely love the henna tattoo! :^)

    as noted in the description, this was merely an outtake, a random candid, taken in the milisecond between one person getting up from the ground, and the subject also getting up...

    I do like the sun in the grass, however I agree, it is a bit overdone on her face.
    I don't mind it terribly.
    And just another idea, this picture would look excellent in black and white.

    Dang. Wish *my* outtakes looked that good! I really like the impromptu feel of the shot, and call me crazy, but I think the overexposure lends a certain surreal air to the image, reinforcing the blissful emotion.

    Cool pic. Her face is a bit over-exposed. Nice design on her hand. Henna ?

    oh, beautiful!!
  • Patrick Lentz PRO 9y

    What a stunning image! Because it is an out-take it has a complete honesty to it that no posed shot can capture. Great work !
  • shanerhyne PRO 9y

    Nice image. I like the way the henna is accentuated in the photo. (View #400 from the Ready Graduate thread in Views:300.)
  • Jonathan Miles 9y

    Nice job. Glad somebody got a shot off.
  • Christine PRO 9y
