The Lagoon 630 MY featured on the cover of Yachting Magazine #1300, April issue.
Shot with a Pentax 645 Z
Not to forget a nice feature inside with 8 pages included a magnificent double spread as opening…
The "nice feature" here is the circular motif on her fashionable swimsuit fits so well in with the name of the cat-yacht, "Circum-Cat"! Yes, this is subtle, but it does work and whether or not one realizes it, the brain does not miss clues like this in building a meaning of the picture. Moreover, you've also placed her as a complementary additional vertical to the strong array of such lines, from the edge of the bow to the railings and structure above her. The texture of the water revealed in the bright light to the left of the boat balances the entire picture. But in doing so, we accept this as pretty damn "natural", in spite of the viewer of the magazine knowing it was, likely as not, posed.
They are both superb ladies. This is a very good commercial picture in that the boat is shown in a way that radiates a great relaxed but competent lifestyle on the water. It's high class, since that lady can go on any boat, and being on board, is a commendation fro the boat and the class of the owners.
Although this picture seems so simple, it really has beautiful features and even slicing of an edge would put it out of balance.
