I think this is a great shot. I never got to vote -- would have probably given this an 8 or 9 overall. Well done.

Wow I can't belive this got 12-1's I gave it an 8, I liked the light and color as well as the set up. Nice looking guy, but most of all it fit the challenge and was well done. The hand seems strange to me, was the only thing I would change. Keep up the good work and good luck.

Wow, I am surprised that this scored so low....and I agree with alfresco, had this been a woman it surely would have placed much higher. That disappoints me.

Thank you all for voting !! I am sorry to see this picture has done so badly on this competition and feel sad that some of you voters who have given me 1 and 2 aren't able to comment on it. I see that maybe the image I have chosen is too much for those who are used to frame ladybirds and flowers, but I hope that this site will keep its appeal and that in the future a photo gets rated on its quality and not whether it is a naked man or a woman. I think we should all be open-minded and rate fairly. In my history I have very rarely given out 1 or 2 points for pictures unless there are really really bad quality and dead boring. I think we all know what I am talking about.

Extraordinary lighting, expression and pose. Congratulations!!

This is an outstanding photo in every way -- far better than its score reflects. I'm sure you know that, but it's still worth saying.

Sad that, had this been a photo of a woman, you would see at the very least a 1/2 point increase in score.

Nicely executed photo.

Another attempt at sex sells. I'm sure you're gathering some views. Good luck with the scoring.

Great light, great framing, and great expression.

Certain a great photo, but I know what would have made it even better, a nude chick with big boobies! But I still give you a ten and seriously think you're a ribbon winner.

10!

Disturbs me slightly I like an image of a naked man this much, but it is a faboulous and very professional looking picture. Probably could be perfect for a full page condum add in a women's magazine. LOL! Great tones, pose, lighting and an excellent way to meet this challenge. One of the very best images... and there are a lot of good pictures.

4 - Technically quite good. Overall, 'too much information' and not subtle enough in my opinion.

I'll just say wow.

It seems this is pushing the rules to the limit or maybe even beyond

Oh My...this might make me vote on this challenge...

Now this is what we need to see more of around here...HOT naked HOT men! Did I say HOT?

Great pic, love the soft focus and muted colors.

I like the rich texture of the main curtains at the outside edges and the way the pinks of that fabric echo the skin tones of the model. The muslin drapes work well to soften the scene as well as hide certain details!

High score, if only because the model is hawt! But seriously, also good lighting and nice focus.
