Great lighting, smooth texture is evident.

i appreciate this picture ...

I see a lot of odd markings on the skin -- I can't tell if they're really there or JPEG artifacts.

very nice image... this makes an excellent black and white for sure. I think this is also a great example of where soft focus sets a nice mood for the image. The texture in this image that really grabs me is the texture of the light and shadows... if that is what you were aiming for, you did an excellent job... = 9 - jmsetzler

weak on the challenge, uninteresting focal point.

This is very dark. I keep trying to look through the shadows to see the texture of skin.

This is artistic, but not necessarily textural.

Technical Aspects5
Meets Challenge6
Total Score6

For those that are just learning, like me.

Composition: Scoring in this area is based on basic composition of a picture and includes the rule of thirds, balance, cropping, and curved and diagonal lines. Subject matter that does not lend itself to the picture or otherwise unwanted is also considered here.

Originality: Scoring in this area is based on pictures or concepts that I have seen, as well as how much effort you have invested in the picture. Usually a little something that sets it aside from a snapshot. Does it make me want to come back for another look? You know things like that.

Technical Aspects: Focus, exposure, lighting, and other special effects (done by the camera), and post processing are all considered in this category.

Meets Challenge: This is based on my interpretation of if you, have/have not, met the challenge. This is fairly simple but quite important for this site.

There are many sites that can give you assistance in achieving better skills in photography, but I think the best way to learn is to take pictures and show them to other people. Believe me when it is a good one you will know it.

Good luck!

this is quite an interesting take on texture, and cool tatoo. overall, while i like the composition, the shot is too dark, and has not enough contrast in my opinion. i tried playing with the two in an editing program, but when i increased brightness and/or contrast, the bedding in the background would become blown out, so maybe a tighter crop or other bedding and then a little brighter may be a possibility. a tighter crop could also remove whatever that black band is on the left. -- gr8photos (4)

Exiting! Nice work... could use a litte more light... but just a little

This is a nice shot, good combination of shadows, and the b/w makes the pic. This is one I'd expect to see in a frame someplace.

LOL 'Susan' has more guts then me. Love the tat. Kee

nice framing, interesting concept for texture.

What ever that is at the top of the pix really distracts and messes up a great pix.
