Thanks for all the great comments. This was nearly impossible- it's a self-portrait, so a special thanks to everyone who liked the model.

::: Greetings from Critique Club :::

Hi, as requested, here is an indepth critique of your submission.

First Impression - the most important one:
Nice shot, nicely lit and attractive subject. Congrats on your personal best score.

Composition:
The composition is pretty good, but the lighting hurts the overall comp some. I believe a tighter (perhaps square) crop to exclued the lower body would have produced a more appealing image. Not that this one is bad by any means.

Subject:
Nothing to distract me from the subject. That's always a plus :-)

Technical (Color, focus, and light):
Color: I'm thinking I would desaturate the photo just a bit as it's looking just a bit too red to me.
Focus: looks good and sufficient DoF to keep the entire subject in focus.
Light: I like the overall lighting. Very nice. I'm not liking the lighting fall off on the legs. I think I would have cropped the image just above the pubic mound to deal with this issue.

To grow its vote?:
The few issues I called out would have grown the vote quite a bit. Technically, it's a great photo and I kinda think it's a bit under-rated. But, them's the breaks.

Summary:
Really nice work. Keep it up.

Hope to see more from you soon,
Leroy

I like the almost abstract look the light creats in this image.

Great shot! I think by having the model pose that way, you get a different sense of the human form. The lighting and the curve work together nicely.

A little too dark, and soft, for my taste but still a beautifully done photo. Hope this does well for you in challenge. I like the warm tones also.8.
