This is Elisabet Thorlacius. This is submitted soooo last minute, at about 11:57 PM EDT. My first nude shot that is not of my wife, she was present though, she is in makeup school and takes care of all the makeup of my work these days and stylizes my shots, she was working the fan to give her that lift in the hair.

Post processing was minimal, channel mixer, healing brush to remove a brazier mark on her side, curves and shadow/highlights.

Lit with two bowens lights, one from above and straight on with a 100x100 softbox and another one from the left at eye level with a 60x60 softbox.

A very attractive subject but here i would have curbed my ambition to this most lovely face. The lighting, as is, robs a lot of important detail as it concentrates on the upper part and then it becomes too flat to complement the rest fo the figure. Hence, it makes the face charming at the cost of all else. Do not take this comment with its full weight but only an observation as to choices we all miss in similar images. Regardless, you get my 7 for this wonderful effort.

I'm sure you getting a lot of comments about 'I don't like when people use sex for votes' blah blah blah as I always do, but you got my vote. Nicely done!

Fresh and energetic contrasting to the rather dramatic lighting.

This is a nice pose and the composition is good. The image feels a little too contrasty to me ... it makes the lighting feel harsh and somehow it doesn't feel right to me for a feminine subject. I hope you get what I mean.

tirrific shot, very graceful.

personally, I'd prefer a tighter crop around her face, and includes the hand, not the elbows though. cheers

I wonder if it says anything bad about me that I always seem to stop and look at the nude shots longer than the flower shots?

This one is pretty well done. A little over-sharpened it appears.

Nicely done! Great shadowing, and framing.

Hooray! A good pic! This challenge seems more full than any other I remember of rather mediocre images and here's one that reaches out of the mire. Nicely lit, nicely presented. Thank you!

This is absolutely beautiful. I love the pose, lighting, hair, and the look in her eyes. Very sharp and great texture on the skin. This is a great shot. I vote a 9.
