Re: Model shoot on Brighton Beach bandstand

This has a great feel about it, attractive model against an interesting backdrop.

You say "the subject is really the setting of the bandstand", but a setting can hardly be the subject of itself
no more than this lady can be seen as incidental to the composition.

Having the model stand on a chair and shooting from a lower camera angle would have cropped out the ugly chairs,
simplified the composition and pulled the essential elements together.

This is a quick and crude reconstruction to illustrate the points.
Your model may have adopted any number of poses to suit your taste.
