An amazing capture. A photo that provokes more emotion, looks better, and is more alluring than if the model were actually in the same room - all without revealing any of those body parts that our instincts want us to see. You have created an image that will make me unhappy with any attempt on my own part from now until eternity. DAMN YOU :-)

Helps that the model is so beautiful, I suppose.

There were a lot of great shots in this challenge, but this was one of the best...should have easily finished in the top 5! Very nicely done!

I'd have to agree with Kaizen - see my comment during the challenge, too. Excellent shot!

Great shot Todd. Underrated. Deserved Top 10, if not Top 5.

Great expression! Wish her face were really sharp. I would also have gone with a looser crop at the top of the frame, getting the curve of bottom in the frame. But lighting and shallow DOF is very good. 7

Beautiful face that is well photographed, but the rest of the photo takes away from this.

seems really touched up, i could certainly see this in a magazine or ad. good shot even though the post looks quite thorough

wonderful depth of field and beautiful model :)
  Photographer found comment helpful.
08/28/2005 03:48:36 PM
Very sexy and playfull image. The focus could stand to be a little sharper on her eyes. It looks like it focused on the top of her hair. Still a great image and one of the better in this challenge. 9

An outstanding head shot. The facial expression carries the day. bumping up.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
08/28/2005 02:13:25 AM
The model's face looks slightly fake, as though it's been retouched slightly too much in Photoshop. I would have preferred a slightly deeper DoF.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
08/28/2005 12:21:02 AM
Great portrait. The shallow DOF is just right and the exposure looks perfect. great work.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
08/27/2005 11:43:30 PM
Very seductive. You have captured your title exactly. She does not look like a "model" attempting to look this way. Very natural
  Photographer found comment helpful.
08/27/2005 10:58:25 PM
Unfortunately I can't vote on this cause I am not a Full Member, but this would have been a 10, No doubt!!...... GREAT WORK!!!

Grrrrr! Wow! A Pam Anderson look alike. I like the "naughty" appearance of this image. Gets my attention :) 9
  Photographer found comment helpful.
08/26/2005 04:57:27 PM
Good idea, the composition is great. A little more sharpness around the face area and this would have been a winner!
  Photographer found comment helpful.
08/26/2005 09:07:29 AM
This is a great shot of a beautiful model, because it brings a very playful mood to the challenge. The texture and colors in the hair are very delightful, and the overall colors are very nice. The only thing that seems a little 'not right' is her eye, maybe too much make up or something by her iris seems to blend right in to her eyelashes. Otherwise, beautiful lighting, and a great use of DOF make this an outstanding image. This image tells a lot about this lovely model, even the tan lines would indicate she is completely in charactor as a fun and playful person to be around. This would be a great shot to be used as a portrait as well. Certainly will be added to my favorites. <9>

  Photographer found comment helpful.
08/25/2005 11:09:15 PM
If this is your significant other, you're one lucky man! :) Her face could be slightly sharper, IMO, but it's still a 9 in my book.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
08/25/2005 09:19:28 PM
Focus and use of shallow dept of field is really great here. Her exprsiion is genuine. If I had one negative comment to do, it would be the crop that should have included her buttock. 9

Nice positioning. Her eyes are great. She draws you right into the photo. Seems a little soft, though.

I like this shot because it looks like you sneaked up on her while she was sunbathing. Nice light. I like the expression on her face, she just looks natural.

Fantastic DOF, a very fun photograph, which oddly enough doesn't have that much nudity. Guess that shows you don't have to reveal much to bare it all. :)

08/24/2005 10:13:17 PM
great! perfect DOF, her eye is tack sharp, just lovely.

Beautiful image
  Photographer found comment helpful.
08/24/2005 05:27:41 PM
Very interesting shot. I think I might have wanted to see a deeper depth of field to make the shoulder in focus, and the tattoo slightly LESS in focus than not. I think that likely would have brought up my score the remainder of the way. Good luck.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
08/24/2005 12:16:58 PM
her face is just slightly out of focus
  Photographer found comment helpful.
08/24/2005 07:46:16 AM
This is a great image.
Very beautiful, erotic etc.
Maybe the eye whites are a little over white, and the DOF could have been increased a little so at least the shoulder was sharp, but still A top finisher.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
08/24/2005 04:59:19 AM
Interesting composition. Great use of dof. Very nice detail in the hair. Great expression on the models face. Nice job.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
08/24/2005 03:35:56 AM
DOF is understandable, but doesn't add to the appeal of this photo. Both cheeks being cropped flat also hurts the image. Good looking model. Focus seems to be clearest on the top of her head.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
08/24/2005 12:15:19 AM
great facial expression. Superb detail in the hair. It is really unfortunate that the crop cuts of the curves of her derriere. I think it would have added a lot to this playful nude. Nice composition. 7
  Photographer found comment helpful.
08/23/2005 11:16:26 PM
Tattoo on back is distracting, and depth of field seems a tad bit shallow... I think it would have looked better if the mouth had been sharper. Other than that, great pose, and great expression! It must have been fun getting this shot!
  Photographer found comment helpful.

This is a nice photo. Very good focus and dof. The lighting is perfect. Good job.

bumping second time through quite a bit. I love the model's expression and her hair. I'd have preferred the tattoo was in focus if it was in there at all, otherwise it's distracting.

This looks like Pamala Anderson

08/23/2005 05:11:52 PM
She's beautiful, for this challenge IMO would have liked more of her body. Keep in touch with her for the next portrait challenge.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
08/23/2005 03:27:21 PM
More of a portrait than a nude study.

I recognize this model! She's STILL beautiful! You are a lucky man... Bumping up to 9.

WOW! Very nice and she is just awesomely beautiful!!!
  Photographer found comment helpful.
08/23/2005 01:18:47 PM
More of a portrait than a nude, especially since you have cut her bottom out of the frame.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
08/23/2005 11:41:21 AM
interesting composition. too bad the buttcheeks are cute half-way. I would've prefered seeing everything or no 'Crap'. Throws off the composition a little. Focus is off or soft on the face and since this could be considered a portrait, the eyes could've used some more sparkle. Skin is very faded (use of a gold umbrella to bounce light would greatly help). Model's expression is quite good. 7

Beautiful shot, the left shoulder is kinda weirdly placed, the hair is in focus but the eye is soft... but still a great shot...9

This looks like Pedro's model. :) Her face, more than her nudity, seem to be the subject here. Crop, composition, lighting, well done. Tones excellent. 7 - good luck in the challenge!
  Photographer found comment helpful.
08/22/2005 02:49:45 PM
If this isn't a ribbon winner I'll be disappointed. Very well done (tastefully I might add). Her face grabs your attention...with the DOF as it is you want to wander, then you are pulled back. Only negative is the pupil of her eye seems unusually large and dark - like a reflection was cloned out...a soft catchlight would be good.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
08/22/2005 02:21:38 PM
Nice capture. I wish the DoF included a little more of the shoulder.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
08/22/2005 12:23:08 PM
Her face is focused with her body too blurred for my taste. I like her sexy expression and her one eye with the hair over it very alluring, but since this is more about nude and not portrait, that's just my personal take on it. Maybe have her tattoo as the focus and not her face - a fun idea you might want to try instead. Hope this is found helpful.

Don't know why, but it's just a hunch. Anyway, I really like the dof and the playful expression on her face. It's a really fun image.

Excellent focus and DOF. Her expression is wonderful and fits the title very well. I like this composition that runs bottom left to top right. The inclusion of her tatoo and top of her (is there a more official way to say this?) butt crack gives a nice balance to the shot.
