I really like the photo and the idea, but I would love it with less fence. Crop from left and from the top?

Dramatic mood, heightened by dark tones in mono.

Hi Steven, Congrats on your third win!

Behind The Lens

Location
In a local park. The model stood the other side of the chain fence of a tennis court enclosure.
Time
Early afternoon, on a weekday when no one was using the court.
Lighting
As the image was going to be in monochrome the lighting was not too imperative.
Equipment
Canon DSLR and a 70-200mm zoom
Inspiration
I had this image in my mind's eye and went out with the sole intention of capturing it.
Editing
I changed the colour image into monochrome and did some dodging and burning to create the dramatic affect.
In my camera bag
If I am just going out to create a single image, I will take only the basic equipment t that i need, In this instance I just took the camera with a single lens.
Feedback
Having an idea of an image before you go to create it saves time, which is particularly important if you need a model, as they will get bored standing around while you are deciding what you want to do.
