gary,

unless there is some context to the blue ball, it's a little distracting. less is more.

Circles were used in some retro pinups, and most of the time the photographer, or artists (if it was a sketch) did not place them in any context.

I didn't google for an example. There is some enjoyment to be had in looking for them.

Didn't the ball typically reflect some color that was found in the rest of subject imagery?

the ball is the least significant element in a retro pinup. this image it's the most prominent and doesn't even match. using stylistic elements in a haphazard way is worse then not using it at all.

Sometimes. Keep in mind this was not a technique widely used.

This one (below) seems to have nothing more to do with the subject than become the background, and the color doesn't match anything the model is wearing.

This orange ball might represent the setting sun, who knows? Other than that it is just there, floating.

A "double whammy" on this one, but white goes with everything, I guess.

The ball does make the viewer think Pinup since that is the only genre I've ever seen use it, but IMHO I don't think this image is pinup.

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.

I agree that a retro pinup image should have retro hair and clothing as well however, we all have to start somewhere. Retro clothing is pretty hard to find in my area. The hair is easier, but you still have to find a stylist that can do it and on my budget thats not easy. I'll eventually get there, but in the mean time I progress a little at a time. Here's one from one of my recent shoots. Ball and all!
