    Welcome aboard. If you would like some comment on your posts I would be happy to start off with the first one. Usually I never shoot women from that angle. It always reminds me of the woman asking her husband if her butt is too big. There is just no way to be honest. The lense isn't honest at this angle. it will make the things closest larger than the things slightly farther away. In other words that angle will always make a woman or even a man look distorted. Head too small for the body and butt too large for the body kind of thing.

    Number two is much better. I hope you can see what I mean here.

    I don't think the angle is necessarily bad as long as you have something near the subject to keep it in perspective.

    I like the jungle gym photo and the fifth photo, though the iridescence is a little different...reminds me of motor oil in water.

    thankyou both for your insightful comments. i do not mind, myself, the angle in the first picture, but any comments are of course welcome. i did take quite a few different angles of that shot.

    (Please note this is coming from a person who doesn't shoot pictures of people) You are off to a good start Aimee. These are great pictures. You expose and (in my humble opinion) compose the shots well.

    Wasn't so much about perspective as how the human body looks from that angle. Men wouldn't much care. Most of the women I worked with were very body conscious. Possibly not anymore.
