Everything works in this shot: the colors, the composition, the mood, the textures, and the dimples.

Behind The Lens

Location
This photo was taken in Baylands Park in Sunnyvale, CA
Time
11am
Lighting
This is all natural light, it was a cloudy day and the model was under the shade of the trees
Equipment
Canon 5DmkII with a 70-200mm f/2.8L lens at 70mm
Inspiration
Many years ago I saw a photo by French photographer of a nude woman walking down a tree lined sidewalk carrying a birdcage. A nude walking away down a path or road is a fairly common theme, but the trees in that original image always stuck with me so when I found this path instantly visualized my photo.
Editing
This photo has fairly extensive post-processing. I cloned out a lot of distractions at the end of the path and some trash along the edges, I retouched the model's skin, the biggest change was to change the leaves from green to golden using Nik Color Effects Pro.
In my camera bag
Canon 5DmkII, Canon 17-40mm F/4L, Canon 24-70mm f/2.8L, Canon 24-105mm f/4L, Canon 70-200mm f/2.8L, Canon 580 strobe, 4 pocket wizards, intervalometer, CamRanger, lots of memory cards, batteries, and business cards.
Feedback
A lot of this shot was finding the right location however the post-processing took it from a so-so photo to an above average photo. Don't pass up so-so photos when making selections.
