Artist's Description

This was taken with a Canon EOS 1100D (28mm @f9 1/320, ISO 100) on a farm called Elandsvlei near Ladismith, South Africa.

My sister Carin has begged me to take a photo of her since she found out I’m doing photography as a hobby.

I guess she’s more used to fashion model type shoots but I really wasn’t going to do the commercial thing. So I kicked her out of bed around 7:00 one Saturday morning and we went sloshing through mud and bush till we found a nice little piece of grassy field.

That piece of cloth around her head was actually some knitted skirt thing she had over her outfit. I guess she was layering clothes for the cold :)

When I looked through the camera and saw the colors this idea (almost a feeling) of what I wanted came up and I asked her to throw the thing around her head.

This is not a HDR. Because of some slight movements from her part and the fact that there was a slight breeze I opted for a combination of two exposures. This has actually improved both the quality and mood incredibly. The HDR defined too much shadow and it lessened the softer romantic feel of the shot.
