Your Angel is very much a Angel.I like the similiarty between her dress and the rockey shore.You should enter the picture she was taking with her cell phone.

brightened her within the image !!

I agree with Greg. She looks indeed a lovely young lady and the quality of the B&W you managed suits very well to the feel of the photo.

As I was posting this photo, the lyrics of an old Bobby Darin
song came into my head....

"Somewhere beyond the sea
Somewhere waiting for me
My lover stands on golden sands
And watches the ships that go sailin' "

I felt the term "lover" would be a bit presumptuous
of me to use in reference to this beautiful young stranger
so I subtituted the word , angel, instead...

I don't like that the rocks are blown out, nor the quality of the light on the waves, water, and sky. Yet the image oozes immediacy. The viewer is right there and feeling priviledged to be there for the the unusual combination of elegance and casualness. Nice capture.

Casual elegance.....perfect description...thanks,Michael.

I was trying to think of the song your image reminded of and I finally remembered Green Eyed Lady by Sugarloaf.

Green eyed lady, lovely lady
Strolling slowly towards the sun
Green eyed lady, ocean lady
Soothing every raging wave that comes
