Well, my score is much lower than I was expecting it to be, and I'm not entirely sure why, but I suspect its because people assume my model has the light up her hoohoo. I can assure you that she does not. In fact she is fully clothed. I doubt that a black light (that gives the purple cast) illuminates bare skin very well; she is wearing ivory opaque tights. The light in question however is not a black light, its just a small LED book light laying on the floor.

Anyway, I can understand that people could make this assumption about this photo. If so, the light not where you think it is, and it wasn't meant to be crude.

Thanks for all the encouraging and helpful comments. It helps me to know that the photo at least appealed to some people. :)

bioluminescent defecation: an interesting but not appealing idea

Very abstract and artistic! I think there can also be a lot said about this image—it inspires thought and conversation. Well done! 8o)

Seems a little too dark and not very interesting. The light shining is in a precarious spot :) Somebody in there? 5

Interesting composition. You've made her legs almost a shadow by how you've lit it...

Interesting image! Did you do this with Black Light? It's too bad the light is so bright.... ahem.... where it is... ;) It would have been more effective if you could have gotten the look without the bright spot...

(Your model has great legs btw!)

It took me a few seconds to find out what was i seeing. Curious where the light come from ;-)
Very original photograph, but i think that you need to work more on it to achieve a better result.
