What do you mean "a big thank you to Scott"? He's the one who should be thanking you!

Thanks for all the comments!!! I am so happy that I had such a great response and only 19 people scored it below a 5. =)

I do have to give a very special THANK YOU to Scott - he helped position me for this shot and gave me the idea for the white sheet. =) Of course, he let the sheet reveal more than I wanted it to... next time I'll get a woman to assist me. haha.

a tad too dark overall...... otherwise, nice composition and use of light.

has a classic feel to it, slight soft focus & warm feel really add to the mood. Top notch!

Excellent soft focus. Great tonal qualities as well
  Photographer found comment helpful.
04/24/2005 04:33:03 PM
great lighting and a pretty subject - I like the softness
  Photographer found comment helpful.
04/24/2005 03:52:16 PM
Very nice. I like the softness and the creases in the sheet. Her back is beautiful. Maybe better with her eyes a little open?
  Photographer found comment helpful.
04/24/2005 05:53:06 AM
Probably would have preferred the models eyes to be open, but otherwise perfect - 9

Very nice, but over smoothed, or out of focus slightly.

You have got the lighting perfect & a lovely pose too.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
04/22/2005 04:08:45 PM
Well carried out, great lighting. The curve of the back is perfect. Perhaps a tad too much blur for my taste... I think it could work better as it is but with a face a bit sharper.

Beautiful. Tasteful editing work as well. I wish her eyes were open, but that's the only gripe I have.

nicely done and a very good nude shot this is nicer than completely nude IMHO
I think she looks very sexual (and thats from one woman to another)nice work

I usually don't get into these types of pictures very much, but this one is very tastefully done. The lighting is beautiful, the model's skin has a nice soft glow to it. Well done. 10

Beautiful soft lighting and highlights. The sensuality of the photo is nice.
  Photographer found comment helpful.

Elegance at its best! I hope you don't get deducted for partial nudity, this is both tasteful and beautiful. How she melts into the background and the cloth on the other side is very nice, and the composition is great - particularily the line that goes up on the left side of her back to her arm. Her expression is perfect too. Four points for a great capture, and three for the post processing. Three to the model :) Ten.

The only thing I'd deduct for is that the "soft focus" removes some needed sharpness in her face, but I won't. The overall is still a ten for me.

absolutely elegant and timeless. And beautiful lighting and colouring to boot. 10
  Photographer found comment helpful.
04/19/2005 05:49:13 PM
Very elegant indeed. There appears to be a strange shadow across the bridge of the model's nose, which could have been dodged. Otherwise, fantastic!

It looks like one of those beautiful, old-timey paintings. It's beautiful!!! I love the cepia tones.

A bit staged, but quite nice nonetheless.

too soft.
more like an oil than a photo
  Photographer found comment helpful.
04/19/2005 01:41:04 AM
Classic, almost like an oil painting. Perfect lighting of an exquisite model. 10

A charming and sensual renditions with a tender softness to bring out beaity of the body and texture of the cloth. Will return again. 7
