I love this picture! I thought it would get a much higher score. I love the grain and the pose!! The only thing that bothers me is the odd texture to her hair. My other suggestion would be to straighten the picture. This is a very creative pose and you should be proud of it no matter what score you rec.

Great pose. Very Geometric. Nice.

Provocative! I like the lighting. Shoulders are just a bit crooked which throws off the symmetry. But, that's a minor nit-pick.

Interesting image. The fact that she ha her albows locked in hyperextension takes away from the shot in my opinion. I think it would look better if her elbows were slightly bent instead. I like the grainy fel to the image. Focus does seem a tad off though.

Very nice. Not too much skin, but just enough to get your point across. B/W was a good choice, the shadows and contrast really do something for this shot.

The light on the model's node and fingertips seems a bit too hot. The missing fingertips on her left hand are distracting. I like the pose, but the visual impact would be stronger if her position was more symmetrical; the angle of her right foot is the only major thing throwing off the balance. Nicely shot; this is one of my highest rated images of the challenge so far.

Emotive. Nice use of shadow.

What iso was this photo taken at? Looks very grainy to me.. See many shots with this position. Normally works well, but the noise doesnt work for me. 5

Looks very uncomfortable. I will have to admit that this is a picture that you would call someone over to take a look. Strange yet sensual. I'm having a hard time finding the words. Excellent lighting. Picture seems to have some artifact that shows up more in her hair, but it doesn't really distract from the photo because all of your attention is on the body form. I'll have to give this a 10.

The most interesting nude i've seen in this competition
  Photographer found comment helpful.
08/26/2005 07:40:32 PM
This is interesting...I like the shape the body creates. It seems a little noisy on my screen. I wish the fingers weren't cut off on the one hand.

I like the pose and the lighting. However, I feel there is too much noise in there.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
08/24/2005 10:42:13 PM
I like the pose very much, it's different. The processing is a bit odd but isn't too distracting. Your're maybe a half stop hot on the nose but the exposure on the rest of the body is great. Don't like to see her fingers cut off on the right arm but overall a great nude.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
08/24/2005 10:12:16 PM
Great pose... a photo that elicits a lot of feeling.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
08/24/2005 06:23:29 PM
A very erotic shot. Only minor details really bother me about this shot, however lighting behind her hair may have been benificial to the score, as well as making sure that her right fingers don't appear cut off. Good luck.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
08/24/2005 04:47:41 PM
Really nice, but I would have preferred a lower ISO.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
08/24/2005 03:17:16 AM
Somewhat grainier than I like but good composition.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
08/24/2005 12:07:44 AM
The pose is interesting. The lighting is ok. What stopped me from giving this higher marks is the hair. There is something about the processing that makes it look odd.

superb lighting!...9

Love the pose and the symmetrical lines. The shot appears to be a tad grainy, but I like the B/W. Nice job.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
08/23/2005 02:47:21 PM
Well done! Nice imagery! My only criticism is the loss of the fingertips - they look cut off and not hidden - did not influence my scrore though. 10

Intriguing position of the model. gives the picture an interesting look. Lighting unfortunatly doesn't seem enought and doesn't allow for good whites. Spots on the lens and imperfections on the drap (black) on the right hand, as well as a little framing problem (more space on the right, more on the top). One thing that also bugs me is the lack of sens of depth in the picture. 6

just think that the pose is ungainly 4
  Photographer found comment helpful.
08/23/2005 01:35:18 AM
is there a filter on this? I don't like the pose. It is a little too sexual for my tastes.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
08/23/2005 12:32:32 AM
nice symmmetry and abstraction of the whole form. could use a touch of CCW rotation. The pic seems like it's tilting to the right.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
08/22/2005 11:44:48 PM
Great composition, but the contrast is strange in the hair. 7
  Photographer found comment helpful.
08/22/2005 11:39:42 PM
interesting pose for a nude.The hair definatley is the highlight of this image. My attention keeps being distracted by the back that the sheet youhave used as a drop has a fold in it that is cutting off her fingers. a bit more light would have made for a crisper image.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
08/22/2005 11:03:07 PM
the hair looks very unnatural and I'm not sure what you did to do this but you could have dodged highlights at 5-9% and possibly averted what is happening here. sorry if this is what you did, just a possible suggestion. otherwise a compelling pic.

THis shot is impeccibly well lit. Great pose that leaves much to the imagination but still evokes much feeling. Great use of the square crop. The graininess gives the shot an even more gritty emotional feel. The only nit I have to pick is that you lost the fingertips of the right hand in the black material. Great job!

I like the angles created by the intersection of the legs and arms, nice symmetry. To pick very small nits, the right and left feet aren't in the same positions. How's that for stretching to find a flaw? Overall a very nice photo, good luck!

Neat pose, it looks very spiderish
  Photographer found comment helpful.

The lighting is good, the image appears grainy though.... Not too sure about the pose
  Photographer found comment helpful.

Very good lighting, the pose is a tad strange, but artistic none the less. a wonderful image.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
08/22/2005 08:51:04 PM
I really like this one. I think it may do well. I only see one thing I don't like about it is the graininess, nut that could be intentional. Great shot. I hope you do well.

I like this image.
WHen I see it I think ob birth, which is a form of release.
Good lighting, pose, symetry, background etc,
  Photographer found comment helpful.
08/22/2005 06:52:19 PM
kind of grainy
  Photographer found comment helpful.
08/22/2005 06:18:24 PM
This seems a tad over edited at the hair line, still a 10
  Photographer found comment helpful.
08/22/2005 04:54:36 PM
I like the lighting and dark background. The pose is somewhat odd. On one hand it is neat how the arms and legs echo each other, on the other hand, it looks like she is either giving birth or being, ahem, gratified. 8.

Body pose and lighting are great. Very sensual photo. Looks like a little bit of overexposure in the highlights in the hair, maybe (or overprocessing)?
  Photographer found comment helpful.
08/22/2005 12:51:47 PM
good shot, lacking a bit on fine detail and a bit grainy. but lighting and pose are very good.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
08/22/2005 09:15:42 AM
What a great pose! But I'm not fond of the graininess, especially in her hair which looks bizarrely like it's been photocopied.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
08/22/2005 06:40:15 AM
provocative, creative and good use of b&w.

Good composition which makes a preety good image giving an illusion
  Photographer found comment helpful.
08/22/2005 01:23:07 AM
I am looking hard through the darkness to see if there's an obstetrician on the other side delivering that baby. LOL Sorry, just kidding - it's just that her legs appear abnormally far apart. Maybe DoF? No legs would probably even improve this shot. Good effort though.

Very cool pose. You have to take a double take. Nice use of black and white.

this would be a top finisher if it hadnt been so grainy

Good symmetry in the pose. I wonder if lighting that created more shadows on the body could give the shot more impact?
