The model looks great and I really like her swimsuit. Not so sure about her expression. If it had been more over the top "ohh, surprise" it would have pushed the image more into pinup.
But pinup is retro and requires retro hair, and clothing as well as expression.
Nice image and the model looks great.
Your comment about the hair, etc, is correct. I mentioned that fact earlier, about another shot. I was only referring to the use of the circle.
glh didn't mention whether he was going for an authentic vintage pinup look or if this was more a copy of the style, with a modern twist.
