I like very much.
Only two things.
(My opinions)
The filter applied, I'm tired of Instagram-lookalike photos.
The shoes.
Who ever went to the sea with shoes on? I think it's unnatural.
The rest is perfect.

The retouch was the photographers choice, but I happen to like it. I've never used instragram, but based on what you're saying, a lot of images must look similar?

The shoes- I didn't want to wear flip flops, wouldn't have had quite the same effect, and the rocks were much too sharp for barefoot.

Thanks for your comments! :)

I meant that the filters used to instagram, very similar to the one used in this photo, do not make similar pictures, but make similar atmosphere, diminishing the value of the photo originality.

Thank you.:) It's good to see you're still hanging around here. In my mind it means there still may be hope that we'll shoot one day. ;)

you are tenacious ;)

health and work are my priorities these days. however, i am beginning to make creative decisions again. so, that's something. when i can make it thru an entire day without thinking i belong in an ER, then i will be good as gold...

Hmmm, I'd like to think I'm tenacious. ;)

Health & work should definitely be your priorities, but I'll hold out hope that you'll get back to the artistic stuff one of these days. You are not old, so I can only guess that whatever's going on with your health will improve eventually. Stay on top of it. Don't give up. Eat cleansing whole foods, drink tons of water or green tea, and don't partake in any of the not-so-healthy lifestyle choices. I've had several of my own health challenges over the past couple of years, so I know how easy it is to get depressed/frustrated, temporarily give up, and then make things worse. Pm me if you ever want to talk about it. If not, continued luck with your journey to better health.

This is a really good example of motion without motion. I get the impression that you're about to move, like a deep breath before a jump. Your hair makes this one, Melissa. And of course, you are beautiful as usual.

Yes, I was about to move. I think I fell over shortly after this shot was taken, it was so windy and hard to balance on those rocks! :)
