great body lighting and dynamic curves but the right forearm with the hand curved looks somewhat crippled at this angle

Very well done. I like the use of duotone here. It's a sensual image without being overtly sexual. Good lighting as well. 8

The loghting is supurb, the model is lovely and in a great pose. The composition is good but the crop of her elbows and hand just don't sit right for me. Nice work and bumping up slightly.

This is such an outstanding photo with nice soft focus and composition, along with a beautiful pose and expression. Really great job!

Love the angle...but i think its a little too soft on her side...perhaps the slightest big overexposed as well. Beautiful girl, angle, and lighting though.

Moaning!

Very good image, soft tones, great light and a good pose. My one little nit pick is I think the angle of her face is a little steep, meaning it compresses her mouth, nose and eyes just a bit too much, but that's really very small.

A captivating nude study with great poise and lovely tones. Very well posed.

Beautiful lighting and soft focus. I like the pose as a whole - but it makes her face look a little strange, and that weird facial expression is the only thing standing between you and a ten from me. As it is, an eight is still nothing to be ashamed of :P.

Looks like a soft focus, which I like. Love the lighting and decision to go B&W...very sensual image. great shot.

Great lighting and beautiful model.

she looks like a very beautiful girl. I don't think the e"up the armpit" shot is the most flattering way to portray her though.

Very sexy and beautiful! 10!

Good tones but wish her elbows and hand wasn't cut off.

I think that is a nice portrait, but the lighting is a bit even, a lack of shadows to give dimension. The way the body stands out from the dark background is good, but at the head it becomes busy in the background and that distracts a bit.
