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

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.

I like this picture. I agree the background looks fake and the girl looks plastic but so what. I strongly believe the creator's main objective wasn't to make it "real" It was a look he was after and he did it very well. The background was done on purpose to look fake, it is after a "fake" scene. It's like telling a painter his painting looks fake..I believe the same applies here..if the creator meant to make it believable, then he failed, but if he meant for it to be in this certain "style" then he succeeded. Not every photo has to be realistic, just as not every painting need to be like a photograph..that's the whole point of both being an art form.
