Thanks to all who voted and commented. Special thanks to those who thought it was going to be a winner. Sorry to disappoint.
I'd really like to hear some comments from those six people who voted this a one and would like to know what they thought was so terribly wrong with the photo.

Ah, the gratuitous semi-naked woman. But well executed.

Always a delightful vision at rest.

This is a winner for sure. I like the subtle play with the whites gradiants and shadows. Great shot! 10

good bott.... ehmmmmm good shot! (I'm joke).

Shame you didn't expose for the highlights and then adjust in Photoshop, as you've got unfortunate burnt out highlights here. Great light, interesting composition. Very attractive model! A very effective intimate portrait. 7
Edit: Another shot where I'm mystified that my comment is one of the few not marked as helpful.

Absolutely beautiful shot. The nightstand is a slight distraction, but my eye quickly goes back to the subject ;)

This will win you a ribbon for sure - 10.

Nice idea and mostly works. Main neg- for me is that messy background at the left with part of the bedside cabinet.
09/26/2003 07:54:23 PM
Very sexy and natural looking. If it's posed, it doesn't look like it. I like the texture of the shirt, and bed clothing. Lighting is just right.

Simple and effective. Beautiful lighting.

The synthesis of the photo is really outstanding. Sepia is the appropriate way for this shot. Congratulations! 9!

i like this

Good comp. Like the sepia. The nightstand is a little distracting. Did you use two lights? The shadows seem to be off, the stronger ones on the shirt are going opposite of the others.

If it wasn't for the table on the top left...I would have scored this pic higher!
Great shot!

Makes me sleepy! Great picture for this challenge. Great B&W.

Very nice.

I wish the corner of the nightstand were gone otherwise I think everything else is well done.

She is enchanting - but images this sexy do not have a restful effect on me,
  Photographer found comment helpful.

Great natural shot, slight shame about the bedside table on the left, very soft and nice tonal range, GOOD

Beautiful woman. I also like the B&W treatment and the lighting is also good. And I can't resist this anymore... nice legs. Ok... have to stop looking and move to voting on other images :(

Nice lighting, attractive subject. It makes me wonder if it was staged or candid
