I suddenly felt the need of posting something today, so I rapidly processed this image (slight processing, though) and posted it.
This photo was taken in Calpe, Spain, during my first time shooting portaits. Rena is an excellent model -and girlfriend!- and it was pretty simple to take better-than-expected pictures of her.
We took a sunbath for just one hour but seems it was enough time to get our skin burned. I tried to get rid of that redish tone on her skin using selective desaturation but gave up. Still need more practice!

Btw, I’ve recently changed my approach to flickr. I intend to use it as a tool to learn, regardless of the number of comments I get. I’d like to read comments in which you express your opinion: what do you like about this photo? what would you change? what do you feel when looking at it? That is the type of comment I leave in other people’s photostreams and thus it’s the type of comment I’d be greatful to receive.

Have a wonderful weekend!

Edited: yaaaay! My first explore! What did I win? 😉 Thanks Eva for letting me know!
