This is probably the only photo shoot i ever did using natural light.
The photo shoot took place on a beautiful sandy beach at Sounio/Athens/Greece this July.
The title of the whole photo shoot is "Tales of a seagull" & this capture is titled "Take off".
I placed a small table inside the water so the model steps on it & when i gave her the "go" she jumped up in the air to give the illusion that she was resting on the water & then she flew away.
I use a Tamron 18-270 at 270mm to have a blurry b/g & sea level.
The time was around 8:00 when the sun sets.That way i could achieve this "low key" result.I all so convert the photo in b&w for a more dramatic feeling.
I thought it would be a good idea to clone/remove the nipple of the model (to make the photo "safe") but i prefer no to.
I hope is NOT insulting to any one. (4 years and 104 days ago)

"I thought it would be a good idea to clone/remove the nipple of the model (to make the photo "safe" but i prefer no to."
You are probably in a loose-loose situation. I have no problems with the nipple, but some may. However if you had cloned it out, you would be breaking our editing rules.
Good luck a lovely piece of art.

Not at all offensive IMHO.
After all, this is an art and and in that context, artistic in composition.
Composition plays a large role in pornographic depictions and this a far cry from pornography...IMHO.
A dead on match to the theme.

If this "insults" or offends (or just turns anyone on for that matter...) then what I really want to say on the matter, would...well, you either already know, or maybe never will... Great shot.

Taking offence of a Creation is to offend the Creator as well?
