Great job. I would hang that on my wall any day.

Ooooh! Me like :) Nice effect of the tainted glass, just would have been more artistic to have her nude, hope I don´t sound like a pervert for saying that, just seems more "set up" like this. If she were nude you could give off the illusion she was in the shower or something like that. Anyway, I guess I am more of a perv than I thought I was, hehe :) 7 from me, nice shot.

A classy entry though the title doesn't fit IMO. Lighting is good except for the lowest portion of her thigh. The removal of arms also makes this out to be some kind of modern day Venus d'Milo. 7

At the risk of appearing prurient, I think this is a great shot that would have been even better if the woman behind the glass had been naked. Modesty would have been well-served with the lighting as it is, and the eroticism of nudity just out of reach (both visually and physically) beyond the barrier of the glass would've made for a great piece of art.

But it's still very good. Colour, framing, border, theme - all great.

I love the texture created by the glass and the lighting seems to hit the subject just right. Looks like a painting to me :)

Good use of glass to create a painting-like photograph! Well lit, well composed.

Nice flow and light. Might like it more if the body was slightly turned toward me.

AWESOME abstract feel to this. THIS is what nude photography is all about. Not offensive...VERY classy and modest yet stunning ! 10 + + +

I've been looking at the other entries that are 'through a glass window' and can't help shaking my head in disappointment at the total lack of effort. But finally I come across one where the photog has actually put some thought and energy in. Thank you... 10

A nice idea and the tones are good. I wonder what other poses might have worked. I find this stretchy profile looks a little tense and unnatural.

That's some interesting glass - I don't think I've seen it textured that way before. The light on the suject is done well.

I love this one. The light is great to accent her s-curved body. The red back was an excellent choice. Looks even if she was packed in an icecube! 10p

The texture in the glass is beautiful. I like the color of the background and the way it turns to black at the edges. Model looks good too. Only improvement I can think of would be to have a naked model cos at the moment my eyes keep being drawn to the clothes. If her arm was placed differently, it needn't be any more revealing. I like the picture in ny case and already gave 9.

your entry almost looks like a painting or something like that. I love the fact you can see some details (blurry, yes, but there are some!) like the shapes in her body & her lingerie. colors look very nice. great job :)
