Well, this was fun. I took the strobe and taped tin foil to it as a make-shift snoot (also a bit of newspaper to shield from background), and then had the romote in left hand and took a million shots, hoping one would come out like I wanted. This was the best pose, though I wish there were more negative space on left side, searched the forums, too bad that's considered a major element. Hope you guys like it and give me bonus points for naked, cuz I cannot for the life of me think of a good title

again, had to use 30D to work with strobe until I find a way to plug it into my minolta, lol!

YAY!! I started at 7.1 until 20 votes, then I stayed at 6.75 for awhile and I am so happy, 15th place!?

awesome, here is my no-editing rules version:

A pro shooting a model would be happy with such results. Even more impressive considering the fact that it's a SP! The pose is perfect; alluring and graceful and perfectly accentuating your curves. Lighting and tones are great too. Kudos to you for not ruining it with noise reduction software.

The strength in your concepts shine through again, cograteulations on a personal best,and top 20 finish. I do not recall reading the title,that's a male for you.

too much emphasis on the hand distracts from overall composition

Just enough.

Lovely image and feminine form. I would like this more without the right hand interupting the lucious curves of the body. Still an excellent image with great lighting. Well done!

more beauty is in the eyes/face than torso
and fingers/fingernails are "rougher" than the body which detracts
very prtty otherwise ;)

would have been nicer, if the dark area was left of her intead of right, is a bit unweighted now

Very tasteful nude study with excellent use of lighting. The angle and composition demonstrate the curves of the model very well.
