    I like it however the light appears to be flat. Nice effect with the floating though.

    How did you shoot this? What did you use to suspend the loop?

    I'd hate to be her dad...

    great shot though! I'm curious about the suspension as well.

    I would have made the crop centre the hoop for sure. Her hand looks a little awkward too, but I bet it is an awkward position to be in :lol: Other than those two things, it looks great!

    Answering some questions:

    1. I tried a more centered crop, but the one I tried was too tight on the hair. I COULD extend the left side a bit, but these are done in a 5X7 size for the models portfolio and I don't know if I would take the time to adjust it into a non-standard size. I might.

    2. The hoop was suspended by a metal cable, which I photoshopped out in post. She was balancing quite carefully!

    There was this girl at the hockey rink that was a "model". Lets just say she got around! All these girls at a young age think their soo mature and older guys just eat them up. its pretty funny to see. [​IMG]

    Neither of these replies have anything to do with my image. Please refrain from responding to my threads with this nonsense. Thanks.

    And so it came to pass that in His wisdom Ceiling Cat bestowed upon His subjects the Ignore function. And much joy and celebration went through the land.

    I think it's a fantastic, original shot. I've never seen the "hoop" treatment before. Great work.

    I don't think I really care for having 13-year-olds looking like that, but you are being paid by her parents (probably mother) to do a job, and you performed your job very well. I've shot some 16/17-year old girls dressed somewhat provocatively (yes, with their permission :lol:), and I can't say I'd turn the gig down.

    And for the guy who would "hit it".....

    Too much time on /b/. :p :lol: Also I like the picture. Although I don't think girls at that age should be allowed to do such it shows great skill on your part. I don't see anything I don't like.
