Re: My first post from Guatemala
Its a nice first post of a beautiful model, but there are a few flaws.
There is an overall blue cast to the image, caused by the cloudy sky. If you want this cold color this then it is fine, otherwise you can warm up the image by adjusting the color temperature in post processing.
The subject is underexposed with respect to the surf. The only way to get both the subject and the surf properly exposed would have been to use an additional light on the subject.
Using a Speedlight is probably the easiest way to do this. If you keep it on the camera then set the power just high enough to fill in the lighting on the subject and you will retain that flat lighting produced by a cloudy sky. If you want to add some contrast to your subject then move the flash off-camera. If you want to keep the cold blue color cast on the subject then you will have to add a blue gel to the flash (sorry, don't know which one).
The model's bikini bottom is drooping open. It looks a bit untidy.
Overall, a pretty good first posting and I hope you post more.
