You certainly look very good here, Melissa, but I find the background to be very distracting.  I think a shallower depth of field would have served the image much better.

Beautiful Image. Your natural beauty posed against the backdrop of one of my favorite cities, makes for an all round pleasing image.

I've been to New Orleans once - back in 1971 I believe.  Did little more than drive through town.  Dude I hitched a ride with was dropping off another guy he had picked up shortly before he picked me up.

Anyway.  Moment I looked at this, I fucking KNEW it was New Orleans.  Right in the middle of the Quarter, if my guess is right.  Architecture can be that distinctive.  Kind of like you, young lady.  Pick you out of a crowd at a hundred yards.  

Another classic photo, woman.  Again, it's nice to see you....
