Great posing and composition. What book was she reading? Where was this shot?

Thanks everyone, I really appreciate the positive comments.

@frugivore Don't know what book she's reading, we just grabbed a red book because it looked good with the green of the olive trees.

The photos were shot here:

The pics are classically fantastic. I would have edited differently, but that's just a preference.

Nice shots, love that the details held so well in the white shirt.

Thanks 01Ryan10 and mjcarson. PP is always subjective and I'm sure many photogs would have done differently, but this is how I remember the scene.

These images are one more example why threads like the creative edits one posted by "Phamster" don't get me nearly as enthused as the simplicity of a nice image. Understandably shots like that can be adjusted. But with the right location, pose, lighting and composition, images like this often need very little to look stellar.

In a world bursting at the seams with creative edits, images with this kind of natural feel look special. I still fine creative edits fun to do. But portraits of this nature are much more what I hope to aim for and seem the most rewarding.

Thank you mdvaden for your lovely comments. I admire photogs who are adept at creative edits too, but I am not among them. My PS and LR skills are basic at best, so I just attempt to get the best image I can in camera and with my processing, create how my mind recalls the scene. :-)

I really like the composition and pose of the model in the first photo. It goes well with the natural light and the mood.
