What do I like about this picture?

I like this picture because of the composition and how the model in the picture is wearing the same colours that match here surroundings almost making here look like she is in camouflage hiding in the surroundings. I also like this picture because the train of the dress has been draped to appear like a mermaid’s tail.

Why do I like this picture?

I like this picture because the model is trying to copy what the elephants are doing, the models hands are posed trying to look like the elephants trunck like the elephants,  The models posture is making her stand tall and look proud so she can be seen from a far and the dress is sculured by the models body like a classiac statue.

I also like this picture because of the comical composition.
