I did try this as a crisp black on white, but it wasn't very interesting. The softer outline, color, and noise were all artistic decisions rather than accidents. It wasn't going to be a realistic type shot anyway, but we obviously all have different ideas of how a shot SHOULD be :o) Thanks for voting.

this is a good attempt. the shadow is a little too soft, i think, and the picture is very grainy. the underexposed bottom is also a little distracting. a nice pose and a good crop, though. i like the blue hues to this, but maybe a black and white version might look better.

very interesting texture.

Nicea idea, the framing is good... but the shadow isn't as crisp as it should be.

Interesting profile! I'm not sure if this is grain or if it's the surface on which the shadow is cast... Maybe a little adjustments on the levels would improve that somewhat... good shot! - jmsetzler

Too much graininess...i'm not sure if you were looking for this effect. If so, you definitely achieved it!

Hee, hee. Fun shot.

Nice curves, but the photo seems a bit grainy.

Very nice. I like how the color gradiates up the frame, but to pick nit, I would have like the upper arm to continue this vein. You are going to get grain comments, don't let them bother you. In this case, you get a bespeckled look that others would have to achieve in Photoshop. The grain is very consistant and reminds me of the painting style (can't remember the name) that was popular at the turn of the century, using paint dots, you know.
