Thanks everyone.I honestly didn't expect this to do so well after I realized that the title was wrong... and too late to correct it. Of course it should have read 'Thunderball, and a few people did pick up on it. So sorry for the error. It was one of the first james bond novels written.
Oh... and I'm especially proud to ribbon with an image that contains some nudity. Proves that people are accepting if it's tasteful.

Simple edit.

I didn't get a chance to vote on this challenge but this would have been a definite 10. Great job.

First, congrats on the ribbon, very well done.

Maybe you can get SC to change the title to the correct ine and also the author's name is spelled with one M; Fleming.

No points off for spelling/wrong title etc. though.

This is beautifully done. I'm not a big nude fan but I think nudity works on DPC if it's not "in-your-face-look-at-my-boobies" kind of nudity but rather a true piece of artwork. This definitely falls into the artwork category. Way to go!

You are going to run out of space! Perhaps Qart should cool it down with the ribbons. :P

Rollerball - not disco ball.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
11/27/2006 03:50:05 PM
Didn't you mean "Thunderball?" Error, error, ... ;=) But more mercifully, your image is a lovely study, the sharp squares of the mirrorball versus the smooth skin, etc. Maybe adding a Walther PPK or similar looking handgun would give a stronger tie to Thunderball and James Bond.

Nicely balanced, good color tone. Bump.

no denying the beauty of this image..I am just having a bit of a hard time understanding the relationship between the 2 subjects

thunderball?

The duotone purple is a great choice for this image, not too sure about the mini-disco ball though, regardless, the curves are awesome and get the vote.

Beautiful image and gorgeous lighting. I'm lost a bit, because I don't know the book. Just took a moment to Search it. Bumping to 7

Not sure about the lighting, but haven't read the book so maybe it's appropriate.

One of the best pictures of this challenge. A crop from beneath would have been a bit better, imo.
