A French woman floats amongst the coral at low-tide.

After much arm-twisting and veiled threats, I was finally able to convince lady travel guy to pose for a photo for me. I've captured her in past photos but I'd never been able to convince her to pose intentionally in front of the camera for me. Sometimes asking patiently works wonders. On this occasion, shedding tears and throwing a temper tantrum seemed to work even better.

This is one of my favorites. It invokes a kinesthetic response for me. I am there in that water, with all those textures, colors and permutations of light. Thank you.

Thanks, Kim! It's always informative to hear what you're thinking! Really, your comments help steer me in certain directions to better my photos in the future.
