I like it, nicley lit, lovely model in a nice pose.

The one thing i will say about the background is the horzion has a strong curve, which makes it look less realistic.

I don't think anything about the background is meant to look realistic.

The extreme curve in the background does feel a bit weird. I might push it just a touch more towards natural colors too, just a touch.

Is the background rolled all the way down to where the model is standing on it....or is that a bit of photoshop work to make her look like she's standing on sand, etc?

Back ground works well especially with orange filter - loveless model too.

Great shot. If it didn't have that curve in it I would think it is real.

Curve is opposite the curve of the earth.  A bit unnatural

You don't need an orange gel/filter. Photoshop, etc, can do all that for you.

Really?  The first thing about this picture that jumped out at me was that the background didn't look real at all - even without considering the horizon curve.

Model looks great.  I might have ditched the gel as well.

It's ok, just level the background a bit to match perspective and don't over do the airbrushing too much.
