I only have one little thing to add, was wondering if it is possible to move her swimsuit? The first thing I notice in the pic, is that her swimmers go one way, and her body goes another, especially in the thumbnail. My comment comes purely from a looking at the photo as a whole, though. I'm not very clued up on the technicalities, lol, but if I were to see this pic somewhere and ask what was wrong with it, that would be what stood out to me, so I thought I'd mention it anyway.

Sorry I can't be more help

If you look a few posts above you'll see that, to me, it looks like an almost transparent base (swim-suit like, if you wish) with some black cloth sewn in at the appropriate places.

The clothing isn't twisted in any way because her navel is exactly in the middle.

However, when I was retouching this photo, I did get the same feeling that there was something odd - I just took plan "B" and threw a shadow there.

Ahh see now I look at it again I can see that. I guess I was working off the shape - it is a popular swimsuit style, and not being able to see any lower, I just assumed. Shall we hereby refer to it as the black stuff? lol

The main area I am noticing is her hip, I don't know that whatever it is is twisted, it just looks non-symmetrical with her body, is that better phrasing?

I should also add a disclaimer that I am a symmetry fan which is possibly why it jumps out. I like symmetry

Hi Ken

A difficult image to colour balance with two light sources. But it was fun trying
