Womanly In Manly

by pauljay

Needless to say, the wife didn't see me take this one! Cropped to portrait format in order to remove a swimmer that was behind the girl.
Taken a couple of years ago in the delightfully laid back resort of Manly, just outside Sydney, Australia.
Yes Nezih, I know exactly what you're going to say!!

So, I won't say it! Instead: Like the light and the foaming and partial reflection on the foreground!

Not a boyfriend in sight!
I tried lightening her left hand side but the dark areas showed traces of noise (at ISO 200?) which was not going to go away. Thus, I'll just put it down to the Australian winter with the sun low in the sky!
