Nicely done. This is a really unique angle that works great. The lighting is great too.

Thanks for the kind words all, one of my 1st shots with my 'new to me' 5D II. Even shot this in MF with an old OM Zuiko 50mm 1.4. I really didn't think FF would make such a difference. I know the photographer makes the picture but for a spare like me any benefit I can get from better equipment helps.

Nice work, svassh. The angles made by the elbows and crossed legs are quite striking; the limbs form an almost perfect triangle, echoed by the angles of the hassock...this works so well that it would have been a total accident had I been doing it!

Thanks Jerry, I can only take credit for getting her to cross her legs the rest was all her.

Dang - I wish I could read like this young lady again. What a quintessential "child" image. I like the composition, too - really works to keep her centered in the photo.

Love the symmetry, almost has an architectural undertone to me.
