Is that POTN thing? or a personal agreement between you and her?
We didn't agree on anything KirkS518 but out of consideration for her I don't think I should post anything showing her face without her consent. I have since talked to her and she said it's ok.

get a model contract make everyone sign you can....I had my whole family sign one....then post away...regardless if its free or not....
I don't usually shoot portraits Stanclark but she asked me to shoot a few of her. So that's why I don't have model contracts and wouldn't even know where to get one.

I'm actually going to disagree with the consensus on this one. Oddly all the "rules" you broke, to me make this a more compelling photo! I LOVE THE HAT! I don't need to see her face, to me this image isn't about her so much as a simple reminder of how powerful nature really is and that we can merely hang on and try to endure it. The drastic red vs the subtle greens, the sharp outline of her upper body vs the blur of the steaming water -- I like it all.
I think you could have tried closing down the aperture and extending the shutter time to smooth out the water more, or contrastingly sped things up to freeze time. This shot, which again for whatever reason I really like, feels like you just took a picture with little thought into framing or exposure. It's kind of in the "middle".
I do have a strange urge to watch Indiana Jones now though...:p
I really like this photo too Bassun for some reason. I think mainly because I caught her in an unguarded moment. I have very little experience with portraits and she was having trouble staying still for the time it took to get a long exposure. So I was shooting and hoping that at least a few turned out. I didn't realize that she wanted me to take some photos of her until we got there. So I wasn't prepared for that. The area I was in is very muddy and slick with very little room to move. If you go too far you end up in mud up to your knees or falling over the edge.
