For me... her legs are what catch my eye which leads upwards to her torso/chest... then finally her face. For me... since her face isn't the main subject, I don't think the current way it is lit/developed/exposed is a problem.

I understand that some photos have a magnetism that directs our eyes to a certain body part. ::) But after carefully observe the image for a long time, I would like to see the face of the owner of that body. ;) Sorry to get away from the topic bikini, but we try to look at the face of Brazilian singer Anitta. :P

I'm wondering if perhaps your screen is a little off?

I'm looking at the picture with my calibrated screen (what I do all my editing on), and while the face is a little on the dimmer side, it's still clearly visible. I don't understand why you'd say "I would like to see the face of the owner of that body", her face is clearly visible on my screen?

Might want to check the gamma setting on your system? Or even better get it calibrated?

Thanks, TTYL

Actually, right now I have the lamp of room is off, and see more details of the face. But this is not the lighting in the room that I use when I do image processing. I calibrated my monitor to match the final paper that will print photo lab.

Here are some of my candid shots while vacationing in Thailand over the Christmas holidays.  Shot in Koh Larn island with Canon 6D, 24~105mm F4 IS.  My favorite is the last one IMG_191-2.

You've found the strengths of the 24-105. With these types of shot it really works well, from good centre sharpness to a pleasant bokeh.

Think the first one is hilarious. Not to self: if my daughters go up to the bar in a bikini like that make sure they put high heels on first.  ;D

The 24~105mm is the only 'walk around' lens I have and it does quite well for it's purpose!  All of these shots were heavily cropped to remove garbage, lawn chairs, people's head etc.  I was quite pleased with the results.

I don't have a daughter, I have a 9 yr-old son, but I am surprised if any father would let their daughters walk around in a bikini like that ;D.

Indeed, it seems that the woman is using bikini she stole her daughter 10 years old. :P Or maybe your daughter 5 years old. :o Or maybe she did not looked in the mirror before going to the beach. 8)

My attempt at being artsy  ???

Spectacular... and the photo is pretty good too.  I like the first... did you sepia the top right and then allow the water to be blue?  I like the effect... and the composition... nice job.

Thanks! I made 2 color gradients in Lightroom, opposite of each other. Blue/aqua for the water and orange for the other side.
