Okay...I guess this is an older photo from a challenge last year - but the first thing I thought of when I viewed this it "Wardrobe Malfunction"! :) Really, I think it's a great shot and I've enjoyed looking through your photos.

Yes, I will be offering prints of this... Probably in about a week when I have time to upload the full size file to dpcprints. Thank you to all of those who liked it - it's one of my favorite challenge entries that I've had in a long time.

This was probably my favorite of this whole challenge. It's sexy but impersonal. It coveys femininity without focusing on any particular woman. The lighting makes adds to this picture by defining the front of the outfit but it also detracts by washing out a little of the upper curve of the breasts. Overall I loved this one. Great job.

Are you going to offer prints of this (he asked hopefully)?

A perfect 10........I mean the photo ;) The lighting, the colors, the contrast are just perfect. Oh, and she's not bad either.

someone should tell her her nipple is showing

Although my personal interpretation of nude would be nude, ie no clothing, I actually like this image. The hint of nude has more of a teasing affect than an outright nude possibly could, and coupled with the french maid outfit it's very fantasy based. As a photograph I could imagine this would have appeal to a large number of people, and even could see it on a wall someplace.

Oops... she popped out! Don't think the mrs's would think that was very appropriate ;-). Cute photo... very nicely done. Great contrasts here... and very sexy. The lighting is somewhat harsh on the left part of her chest... but otherwise not bad. -8-

I like the composition, but the nipple peeking out seems rather unnatural, particularly with the white fringe tucked in underneth it. If the breast were out of the outfit a little bit farther perhaps the fringe could remain out and still provide the amount of exposure you were going for. Of course I'm not sure how well that would work in real life, but in theory I think the more natural looking shot would help a lot. I like this a lot either way though. Good work.

While the maid is a fairly common subject of fantasy and often depicted in erotic photograpy, it is very rare to see one done as nicely as this. Nice line is the corset. I also like the "peeking" nature of the nipple rather than someting more obvious. Unfortunately, the skirt seems a little out of focus, perhaps from movement. A very enjoyable image overall.

Nice compostion and exposure. Very nice lighting. Super job!

lighting is good, use of space is good, crop is good, subject (while attractive) leaves something to be desired. it's a little unnatural I guess ("hmm. there's a maid. and there's her boob".) They're good boobs, don't get me wrong, but I think you could have done more with it. Great technical shot though.
07/11/2003 05:53:51 PM
It doesn't look real to me, its like a mannequin but great idea and composition. 7.
07/11/2003 01:59:33 PM
clear! Nice angle and lighting...More leg would have completed the shot and took the focus off of the nipple.

Original and provokative! I like the lighting and BG. It's a simple yet effective shot. my number 2 of the challenge! Good job!

lol Very cute........how fun. Love the lighting.

Very nice. Great use of light and nice crisp focus. I might like to see at least one of her arms in the photo. I don't know why, maybe to look more natural? Still good work and good luck in the challenge.

Nice fantasy image, well cropped. Really gets the imagination going! Shame about the level of noise in the picture though. 9

Interesting, but does very little for me. Showing a nipple isn't exactly my idea of a well thought out nude.
07/11/2003 02:37:07 AM
Gorgous. I love it. (well of course, anything in this style I have a strong feeling about- look at my portfolio to see why.). Excellent composition. Lovely skin color. Very soft lighting- it works! This photo is only missing a bit more detail on the legs so we could see just a bit more the lace at the top of the stocking. It would have helped. Very well done though! 8

not sure i like the way the nipple is peeking out, it looks too placed and unnatural. Otherwise a very nice image. Like the black and white as contrasted by the color.

funny
07/11/2003 12:15:16 AM
Well, Jodie, it'll be interesting to see whether this does as well here as on PB :-) It is a wonderfully erotic piece, with great exposure on the various textures. well done!
