Angel in a Blue Dress

Going to post a few with me playing with the sun.

I shot this one, again of my lovely wife, in Grand Teton National Park.  It was sooooo bright that I was really struggling with exposure issues (probably because for some reason I had the ISO set to 320.  Really should know better than that), but I managed to get one of her dress (she's starting her own fashion line, so she wanted a shot of a dress she'd created as we went to a wedding later that day).  I actually liked the white wash effect of the background.

Thoughts?

Great Shot! And a beautiful model ... I do get this feeling of burned green ... Perhaps this the kind of picture that would gain atmosphere with a sun flare, warming up the background. Good work!
Michael Benjamin Studios: I'll try a warming filter. Maybe some post-prod sun flare, too. Thanks Thomas!

stunning effect Michael, lends a certain edge. The yellow shrubbery makes the background appear more bleached than overcooked. Where was the sun?
Michael Benjamin Studios: Thanks, Spark. Sun was slightly behind her, and off to the upper left of the frame.
Swedish national colours, eh? Yellow and blue smile Excellent composition and post, but it looks a little washed out for my taste
Michael Benjamin Studios: I'm actually with you, Tom. I'd rather have had the mountains in the background. But took the best of a bad situation. Tried, anyway...
an amazing portrait! it seems like you managed the light situation well. i think the brightness of the surrounding really adds to it smile
Michael Benjamin Studios: Thanks, Charles.
