Beautiful. You and the work. The light is wonderful. The only thing I would mention is I can see the folds in the background on the right hand side behind you. Well done absolutely lovely.

I really like the sharp line on the top of your upper leg vs. the softer vertical shadow lines. Also, I'm not sure if it's your hair, maybe combined with the slight sepia tone, but it has cool old fashioned look to it. (and you have absolutely no need to feel nervous - the pic and the model are both very pleasing)

Beautiful, well done. It is so nerve-wracking uploading something like this of yourself but you look beautiful and its artistic. The lighting is fantastic and faced away from it the shadows play wonderfully.

Wow! Looks straight out of a silent era movie. Even has a bit of that nitrite-stock glow. Excellent work!

This is really great! I just wish I could work out what that was in her hand. Your lighting placement, pose etc. are perfect. Model id stunning. Great B&W conversion.

Very lovely shot! Nicely composed, love the lighting, coloring and the entire look. Very tastefully done and artsy!
  Photographer found comment helpful.

I really like this shot. It has a very vintage feel to it. A classic beauty and wonderful lighting combined with the warm sepia tones make this one of my favorites.
  Photographer found comment helpful.

I really like this image it has an ethereal feel to it, but that very same thing is what gave me pause to begin with..at first it felt too smooth (neat imaged maybe?)
I kept coming back to it and spending time really trying to discover why it appealed and or didnt. May I just say now (of course I may i'm the one typing afterall lol) that "Art" should make the viewer stop and question what it is they like or dont like, how it moves them, relatedness to our lives or not.. so many things and out of all the images in the challenge..that is what yours did for me. Bravo for that.

The pose is sincere, lighting is great. Would have liked to see the warmer tones brought into the back and head/face a bit more.

Well done I hope you do well :)

love the softness of skin, composition and use of negative space, 8 (however, I just noticed there's something in her hands?)
  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/31/2007 05:01:19 PM
lovely lighting and tones. I like her pose, very "zen", and somehow the glimpse of light on her nipple is very sexy.

bumping up :)

I love your direction here, and the tones you set. Actually the photo is a 10 without the distraction of whatever is in her hands. Its coming across way to dark (above her hands), and it really distracts from the otherwise amazing photo. I'm still giving it a 7, and suspecting you will finish in the upper half of the challenge.

A lovely image. Great lighting. The model is great, I love her pose, and how she is gazing out of the frame. Really nice work!
  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/30/2007 06:21:24 PM
Wow, what a beautiful model - both she and the pose you've selected put me in mind of Victorian portraits, not that nudes were quite as common then! Lovely lighting - the strong shadows are great. However they do hide what she's holding to the point that I think it would be stronger without her holding anything (or with sufficient light falling on it to make it relevant for inclusion).

Nice image. Good composition and pose. Interesting lighting.

Soft and senious.....
  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/30/2007 05:37:25 AM
very good pose and expression. contrast is a bit too high, lights are partially blown and i can't see what she is holding in her hands

It looks like he has something in her hands....would like to know what it is. Other than that, great pic.

the pedestal really adds to the picture, imo
good job. :)
  Photographer found comment helpful.

I like the tone
  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/29/2007 06:50:50 PM
very nice. Gentle lighting and soft expression. won't be surprised to see this in the top ten. The toning is nice too...though I'd like it if it were more consistent.

(as an aside, if the inconsistent toning wasn't intentional, next time try dodging and burning before you convert it to duotone...then once you convert it will be more even.)

Normally i don't like noise reduction tools like neat image, but in this case it adds a silky texture to your skin, which is an asset to the photo.

I like the gentle, yet high contrast photo. 10.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/29/2007 02:31:55 PM
This is slightly annoying in that you can't see what she is holding.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/29/2007 02:27:50 PM
traditional but very tasteful 10
  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/29/2007 02:13:43 PM
I like this shot. It has a very 'antique' feel about it. My only questions would be on the lighting as her back ends up a different colour to her legs and feet, whilst the front is so dark that I cannot make out what she is holding. I don't know she actually needs to be holding anything - but if she is, then it should be clearer what it is. That said I still like the shot.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/29/2007 01:28:20 PM
Quite lovely. I can't tell what she's holding but it really doesn't affect the impact of the picture. Toning is very nice.

I think this is my favourite in this challenge, not sure why. Maybe it's the nice lighting, maybe the pose...most likely it's the beautiful model.
