Nice image. Good curves. Not too sure about the chair.

Is the focus of the image the model or the clothing?

I also think this is a nice image with a beautiful model but I also agree that the chair is a bit distracting. Is there room in front of the model so that the image could be cropped to remove part of the chair and still look balanced?

Well, one could certainly make another image with just the girl that many might find preferable, but that would be a different image. Personally, I like the chair because she has used it in a most effective way.. her pose looks very natural while displaying her figure well.

For me, the image is posted under fashion. Which to me means the clothing.

When I see this image, my attention does not go to the clothing. My focus goes to the chair and her shoes, then to her back. I'm not spending much time on the garmet at all.

Wow, I never thought a chair would create such a stir. The focus is clearly the model, at least to me it is. The chair is simply a prop that I wanted to include because of the clean lines and elegance it added to the image. As far as this forum being fashion, I believe someone answered that question a while back. Perhaps Mr. Pickles can elaborate on that better than me.

Anyway, thanks to all for your comments.

I like this image and the chair doesn't bother me. Have you considered making a narrow vertical crop through the middle of the chair which puts more emphasis on the lady. Just a thought.
