Photograph Information Photographer's Comments
Challenge: Granular (Basic Editing III)
Camera: Nikon D70
Location: Sparta, NJ
Date: May 23, 2005
Aperture: F/4
ISO: 200
Shutter: 1/60
Date Uploaded: May 23, 2005

Shot with Nikon D70 and Nikon 50mm F/1.8 lens outside with available light. The "sand" is actually a mix of sand, sea-salt and espresso.
Will probably fall to the middle of the pack at best because the whole photo isn't of sand but that's okay, I like it anyway.

Very sexy and tastefully done photo. I feel that the variets of textures is what realy adds to the photo. smooth skin, granular sand, woven fabric, super fine hair. So many textures and all of them working well together and all of them in brilliantly crisp focus. Very well done 8

Very well done. Been voting for 20 minutes so far and this is the first compelling image. I like the use of shape and lines.

Beautiful picture..perfect contrast, clarity, comp. etc..for me personally, the title is just kinda "dumb"...it just doesn't seem to go with this exquisite image.

The use of sex appeal here actually fits the photo. It works well as a duotone.
