I'm secretly hoping this one TANKS because I'd hate for SC to see the original and see how much "minor" cloning was needed to make this look nice.

I went into the studio today with a different idea in mind all together, but one idea led to another, then another, then another, then I got ... here er.. there.

I know what you mean - and before you know it, you've got all your clothes off and you're lying there on the floor naked (or nearly naked) and you think "Hey, I think I'll take a picture!" LOL Haahaaheehee. :P

Great job and congrats on a top ten!

I recognize those persimmony shoes!

Excellent use of negative space, shading, tones, and lighting.

There's some sort of big bug on your back.

*trolled score, just for trolling's sake*
  Photographer found comment helpful.
11/11/2006 08:48:36 PM
It really is quite unfair to be so fit and sexy. :-) Wonderful job Cindi. Love the use of negative space (not that anyone is noticing it) :-)
  Photographer found comment helpful.
11/11/2006 02:31:06 PM
Artistically wonderous. I'm not big on tatts, but it does balance it a bit.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
11/11/2006 07:21:14 AM
Nice... uhmm... tattoo! ;) This is really a great shot: you created a very sensual and sexy image without even showing your face. I love how you put your right hand under your head. This shot must have crazy view/vote ratio ;)
  Photographer found comment helpful.
11/10/2006 09:21:29 PM
Great comp and lighting. 10
  Photographer found comment helpful.
11/10/2006 01:24:44 PM
Very neatly presented with even lighting to bring out the black accents. Bump.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
11/09/2006 01:58:04 PM
I like the idea and the picture itself but could you call this a portrait?
Maybe I don't know exactly what portrait is. Therefore i won't rate it but i really like it!!
  Photographer found comment helpful.
11/08/2006 11:03:01 PM
I'm not thrilled with the hand. I think I would have tried a small pillow and kept the hand in front of you, hidden. Excellent light and composition. Great work.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
11/07/2006 10:09:39 PM
Bueatiful!
  Photographer found comment helpful.
11/07/2006 07:42:09 PM
Nice lighting. Great shot in black and white. Hand looks a bit over sharpened? Maybe a bit too much dead space on the top. Lovely model.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
11/07/2006 06:26:01 PM
Sweeeeet! Love the crop and the B&W - I would have USM 'd it just a tad - other than that its very solid 9
  Photographer found comment helpful.
11/07/2006 08:48:51 AM
Striking, and good.

11/06/2006 03:31:15 PM
Nice...the touches of black work well.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
11/06/2006 03:11:37 PM
Daring! Good choice for B&W - great contrast and detail.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
11/06/2006 10:48:28 AM
I knew the tat looked familiar!!!! This is absolutely beautiful - the B&W provides a softer, more sensual (rather than sexual) feel. Your lighting is enviable, and inspirational!
  Photographer found comment helpful.
11/06/2006 09:47:37 AM
Wow! I think this is a 10. I love the B&W and the simple posture, truly lovely. Kudo's to you!
  Photographer found comment helpful.
11/06/2006 12:34:02 AM
I think this would be better with the legs bent and the space between the legs filled in.. get some meat on your bones girl! 7

11/05/2006 03:40:19 PM
Excellent self-portrait. I like the black lace and tattoo! It's gotta ribbon!
  Photographer found comment helpful.
11/05/2006 02:49:25 PM
Hey. . if you "got it" show it off!!! And you TOTALLY "got it" :) This is a flawless photo -- and my guess is -- you will have a ribbon to prove it! You should! 10!
  Photographer found comment helpful.
11/05/2006 12:41:02 PM
I really like the lightness of this with the touch of black. The hand on your hair looks a little akward to me, but nothing big ;)... Good Luck ;)..ohh yeah idnic?
  Photographer found comment helpful.
11/05/2006 12:40:04 PM
Daring and creative. Nicely done. B&W works very well here.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
11/05/2006 12:07:55 PM
Damn it took me long enough to finally find ya ;-) Hi Cindi, lookin' sexy girlie. You know you're good with the lighting and technicals, so I ain't even got to say it... LOL

Just one thought, I'm wondering how a piece of plexi-glass underneath you would look in this shot?

Anyway, 10 for the photo and the subject.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
11/05/2006 10:37:25 AM
Yeah, that's pretty sexy. High key is well done, and I like the hint of shadow below your form all the way to the lower frame. Great work.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
11/05/2006 08:37:49 AM
Yeah, yeah, yeah, bad side my ass. :-) Nice work with light as always, my dear!

Cindi Penrod put some clothes on! ;-) You're getting quite daring lately...

Great image...love the tattoo, have I ever mentioned that? your lighting is always fantastic
  Photographer found comment helpful.
11/05/2006 05:09:46 AM
this reminds me of a self-portrait I took of me wearing a lace man-thong, entitled 'noble homme', anyways nice comp, 9.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
11/05/2006 04:55:56 AM
Remote or 10-second-shuffle? Would this be sooo much easier with a large screen attached to see result instantly!

Nicely done, good modeling with beautiful curves.

The gap inbetween the legs looks funny >.<

There you are, you sneaky devil. I had to check out your portfolio - I recognized the sun but couldn't remember who had it. You have a fab bod, you turkey! Love that you chose not to show your face. Great undies too. I'm sure the guys are drooling!!! GOOD JOB.
