Why don't more women look like this, and when will said women realize that good health=attractive

you can't tell from a woman's weight or appearance if they are healthy, and that is the whole problem.
You can only say that women that are severely underweight or morbidly obese are probably not healthy.
Anything in between is a mystery, only the doctor knows.
People with bmi's between 18,5 and 25 get heart attacks, high blood pressure, high cholesterol and other "fat people" associated problems as well.
But I do not want to trivialize your well meant compliment, I do agree having a healthy weight is probably best and damn well attractive.
At least, if that is what you meant.

You also can't tell a womans weight by looking at her.  I, knowing a ton about human biology, can usually make a rough estimate by looking at a picture.  Also posture is important, as well as facial expression.  And yeah, there's a pretty thick line between healthy weight and non healthy weight.

"You also can't tell a womans weight by looking at her."
I didn't say, claim or suggest I could. But yes, I agree.

"Also posture is important, as well as facial expression."
Important for what? Are you talking health or attractiveness?

"And yeah, there's a pretty thick line between healthy weight and non healthy weight."
Um, are you agreeing with me? I have to, regretfully, say that I do not fully understand the term of "thick line" because english isn't my first language and haven't heard the term in use before.

Anyway, a lot of women use makeup in a way that can mask "signs of unhealthiness"  like unevenness in the skin, dark circles or bags under the eyes, small sores, dry skin, red patches of skin, premature wrinkles caused by tanning, restricting calories or smoking too much, grey skin, sparse eyebrows and last but not least uneven features/lack of symmetry in the features. 
But you probably know all of this already.

My point is that the model is wearing makeup and you can't tell if she is healthy or not. (not that you can with 100% certainty say she is healthy if she were barefaced, but that is not the point). 

My other point is that, If you were to be more precise, you probably feel that "looking healthy/healthy looks= attractive", even if you still feel that "good health=attractive".

Physical attractiveness has been studied extensively in both evolutionary psychology and evolutionary biology.
People are attracted to healthy genetically fit people, so when we want to appear more attractive we cover up signs of unhealthiness and poor genetics. That is the science behind the make-up in the photo.
What we find attractive is for the most part purely biological, personal preference doesn't play a large role.

If it doesn't seem too intrusive, I was wondering if you could tell me where this [and the the other] picture was taken.  I only ask, because this really, really reminds me of back home - upstate New York.   Actually western, but, you know.. upstate.

Like your work, BTW.. seriously considering putting you on my Watch List.

This was taken in Carmel, NY. Where upstate NY were you? The farthest I've been in Lake George and Glenn Falls. I love it up there.

Samarai Featured By Owner Oct 28, 2013
I knew it!!!
Same, basically, foothills.  Just the other end of the state [and, actually, other side of the mountains].
I grew up in Buffalo; moved down near Jamestown, when I was fourteen [extreme southwestern NY] - lived in that area [excluding 3 years in the Army] until my late twenties.  Can't tell you how many times I've wished the hell I'd never left.  Live in southern Illinois now.. miss those hills, though.  More and more, the longer I'm away.  But, what are you gonna do?  Until I retire, at least, I'm kinda stuck here.  

Really appreciate your replying.  
Gonna have to go and look at those pics again.

Thanks.

OK, the white lace is a little incongruousness with "nature", but the boots are freaking awesome!  :D

Your model is beautiful, and the framing and composition are great.  With her off center in the photo, it creates a tension, as if she's ready to spring from the rock and start sprinting through the woods after a deer.  Love her stance on the rocks, and her gaze up into the trees.

Yeah I have to change the title, I'm getting a lot of complaints XD 

I'm the model in this photo! I guess I should make that clearer in the description.
Thank you though!

Actually, other than my one really nit-picky observation about the lace, it really IS a good title, and fits with the rest of the composition!

OK, here's what you do.  You just say the lace represents the honeysuckle blossoms around you!  ;-)

Oh yes, the model is REALLY lovely!  ;-) Guess I should have gotten that from your description.  (It does get confusing here with so many photographer-models doing self portraits.)

Seriously, it is a really nice shot!

Yes I know! It's very confusing, that's why I haven't really done any modeling for other people in a while and started focusing more on my own photography :nod:

Well, good for you to focus on the "behind the lens" part!  I'll have to poke around in your gallery more.

...but I hope you don't give up on the "in front of the lens" part completely.  You really are a lovely model!  :-)

Blessings!
