There are a number of distractions. Her heel at the edge is neither in nor out of the frame, doesn't really add anything to the story. The fit of the thong, camera angle, and the way her legs are spread are creating some unnatural body lines. Another line is created by the edge of the towel at the upper edge of the frame. It appears haphazard.

I am not sure about the concept of putting a thermometer in her thong. The execution makes it overtly sexual. I think it would be more interesting to see her eyes, maybe put the thermometer in her top. This feels more medical than sexy to me.

Personal Quote: Photos are a chance to see the world through someone elses eyes.
Yesterday my daughter and I went up to Griffith park to shoots some pictures of her new outfit. We were planning on shooting by the observatory, but after walking half a mile from where we had to park we were stopped by a security guard that said we needed a film permit from the park office. This was just her and I, and all I had was my camera. We did look different, but why is looking out of place a justification for having to pay to do the same thing that all the other people are doing? Being Los Angeles everyone wants to get a slice of the entertainment industry, but I have no such budget, as the pictures are not being sold. We were not bothering anybody, obstructing anything, or causing any damage yet we could not shoot because we did not look like tourists. Does any government agency honor the bill of rights anymore?
