Oh she does have shoes on! Great work!

I have always loved shots like this. septia and color. I don't understand the backdrop on the bottom of the photo.

Methinks a little "duble entendre"...Yes?...No? ;) Stan

Nice post-processing on the desaturation, great shoes :) I have looked at this one a few times now, trying to figure out why it is that, despite good editing, the image doesn't appeal to me that much (yet the thumbnail is clearly interesting enough for me to open the image up again). I think it's the cut off upper body primarily, somehow it feels disjointed that way. I'll check back tomorrow to see if you have left some photog comments.

Very sexy. I really like the composition, focus and us of neg space.

Nice image, maybe a tad oversharpened for me?

selective color looks very nice in this photo. smooth legs ;) I think it would look better when the canvas at the bottom wasn't wrinkled, nonetheless I give you an 8

Took my breath away. 10

*gulp* Um, yeah that's nice. Actually, I really like the tone you used for the skin. Nice shades of grey that don't look flat.

I'm trying really hard to fault this but it's just not working. I bet this is one of the most looked at photographs in the challenge & I can see why. This is excellant.

Nice shot
01/18/2006 06:59:12 PM
spectacularly well captured
01/18/2006 04:28:11 AM
I find the skin tone too pale in contrast to the bold red. Looks real paste like.

10 from me...good luck!

The desaturation here works really well. Also a very nice composition. I think if the sheet on the floor was totally black, or at least flat, it would have made a big difference though.

I have always found this photo fascinating. Good use of selective desat and leaves a lot to the imagination.

After reviewing her portrait, Sally decided a day in the sun would indeed be a good thing.

Nice use of selective desat. I love the lines and the way the color snap.

Nice use of selective desat

Yes inDEED. Wow.

My only gripe here is the furls of the black fabric. If you could have cut that off somehow, I think it would look even better....

You know you have voted on too many amazing pics when you see a pic like this and you look at the furls in the fabric... *smacks forehead*

You did a grate job .. ice
01/16/2006 04:45:02 AM
This one will score a lot
01/16/2006 02:53:58 AM
"Slurp" I like!
01/16/2006 02:19:14 AM
I'm not really caring for the selective desat here. The cold tone makes her skin deadish to me. I think the pose is good. I'm not sure about the backdrop at the bottom with the rippled black and gray - what is that?
