Thanx to you all for the comments.
I zee now you are right about having the subject in the center of the picture was not such a good idea after all.

But still I think it is the best of my entrys so far;)

I thought this was a strong and beautifull image. I do like the empty space as well. But I do think the dead center positioning was indeed a very unfortunate idea. great B&W anyway.

Nice dynamic shape. Good concept, although I wonder if offsetting the composition to the left would have improved this? You would still need enough dark at the left (or right) side to make it work, but centering it kills some of the design in the shot. This would probably work well as portrait too - making use of the model's shape to further enhance the composition.

I like the composition and lighting in your shot, the white line on the leg and the positioning of the hands, beautiful and subtle, yet bold and evocotive. Very well done, shot has an emotional quality to it. One of my 2 10's this challenge.

I think there is a bit too much black space in this image - your subject almost gets lost in it. Nice lighting and the frame holds it in.

Very interesting effect you have created.

The hands look "alive" but the body looks almost like a statue. I look forward to catching your comments about the image.

A very well taken low key image, I like your idea of the hands holding the stomach like that. The lighting is optimal and reveals just enough for the observer to imagine the form of the rest of the body in the darkness. In my opinion there is just a little too much darkness behind the body and the subject is too centered (8)

This is an amazing shot, the lines, the use of space, the lighting, the concept. I have looked at this picture over and over again and it just keeps screaming 10! to me! Well done!

Great shot. Lovely lighting there. Only thing bothering me is what seems to be over sharpening (best seen on under the right hand of the subject). Everything else is just great. Good luck.

Excellent shot, not the most literal of entries and better for it. Love the lighting and mood.

Bravo! My tastes go to a less centred subject. But that is a personal thing.

Very intersting use of light. Cropping out the negative space on the right and left and making this into a 'vertical' composition seems to work better for me. The horizontal framing and the vertical nature of the subject seem to contradict here.

The hard lighting communicates a sense of nakedness. I really like this.

I can't tell if this is male or female? The skin has a lot of texture/grain. I think it is artistic, and the pose is very good as is the lighting. Neat shot.

I like the lighting and the B&W. I think it might be stronger graphically if it were cropped as a vertical. The hands seem to be covering something, not exposing it, but that's just my nitpick.

Lovely shot. The flesh almost looks metalic.

I like the concept and the imagery the photo seems to be going for, but I don't like how the light is reflecting off the skin, it seems very mottled - it may be the gray tone of it. Still an arresting image.
