This is a fantastic fashion composition. The tilt and POV in this is simply amazing. The post production with the background cast a surreal, out-of-world ambiance that draws you in. I love the shadows in this. The HDR effect throughout this piece is well done. Good balance without over saturating the highlights and shadows which can be prevalent in many HDR photographs.

As for the models, the white on white is perfect.
I like the touch with the bare feet. Very sexy and with that stylish "W" magazine flare. I'm not sure how much of the set is digital or real, but the composition is flawless. Feels real and well designed.
Wonderful photography.

This may sound stupid... But I think she can play Emma Frost (X-Men).. She totally looks like her with that white outfit...

my most used photoshop tools are..

hue/saturation
dodge/burn set to midtones
healing brush
smart blur
gaussian blur
laso & magic wand used with refine selection
airbrush set to normal
noise
layer blending
multiple layers set to different layer modes

and maybe a few others.. that's pretty much all I use regularly

it's sort of an HDR effect, but a different way of doing it. google HDR tutorials and it'll be pretty close

for some reason I don't think the setting is appropriate for what they are wearing. the shot is still really great but cropping it to hide the clouds or maybe turning it black and white would have made it even better I think. keep up the great work. could be the skin tone of the girl against the blueish sky that makes it look odd or something to.
