Did a re-shooting of a freind of mine and kept admiring her grace and how natural she can look, so I thought to use her for the challenge. I hope you guys like her, her name is Tip.

Now how did she know this is your pic :-) Or did she really mean "nasty". Or Nasti?

Anyway Nasti, this was waaay underrated. The quality is excellent, almost shadowless only a slight shadow to be seen around her shoes. Perfect lighting! 12 ones and 12 twos and 19 threes is so insulting. I can imagine some people didn't think it met the challenge in some way, but to score such a quality photo so low is beyond me.

Great photo, but not really what Im thinking of as Grace.
11/04/2003 01:05:52 PM
i'll bet those feathers tickle. mine do. :D

Personally I feel that this image could have benefited from more dramatic light. You could have then created more of an imapact with the graceful curves that the female bady has to offer.

amazing grace!!
11/01/2003 02:08:05 PM
i think another pose would have said 'grace' better. nice shoes though! haha.

Great pic Nasti!
I saw your serie of this model about thirtheen minutes after uploading to pbase, when I was browsing new galleries. I think this is definitely the best one of the lot. I love the pose, its a bit like classic pinup paintings. Seducing, styleful, positive. The red boa leads the eye along the body, but it is the seductive smile that really draws me into it.
The shadowless lighting, without edge overexposure is very well done.

One of my favourites.

Hello cheeky, she can come over to my place anyday...
10/31/2003 09:08:34 AM
I cant see grace here ;-)
10/30/2003 05:09:02 PM
Brave idea, but - not only - therefor I like it very much! :-) Her smile is really charming, the scarf gives the composition a nice element of colour. I also like that there are not much colours but they are effective! :-) I like the background and the lighting as well. I could neither criticise the technics nor the subject, so 10 for this shot. :-)

YES!!! Now that's what I call GRACE! Beautiful shot. Could have used a tad more contrast/intensity but thats a knit pick. I'll give you (and your model) a 10 anyway. My guess is that your going to get beat up from some of the Puritan type voters and commenters on the subject matter but hey, if they can submit endless photos of their little pet kitty cats then I say equal time for the human pussy cats as well, right?

nice image good setup...Is her name Grace :)
10/29/2003 06:11:36 PM
what does that have to do with grace?

sorry I dont think this fits the challenge very well so I´ll give you a 4
10/29/2003 05:28:32 PM
WOW, this is grace!
10/29/2003 04:21:48 PM
Nicely taken. pose creates a pleasing composition, model's facial expression doesn't look too forced, boa adds right touch of colour. Not sure it shows grace as much as flesh on offer but it's a well taken image!

A very attractive model, well lighted, gracefully posed. I think some amount of shadow, and possibly some background other than plain white would make the photo seem more natural.
10/29/2003 01:25:55 PM
is this title not a bit racist and the content a bit exploitive, especially when the subject is grace and the position of a very beautiful woman is strained and uncomfortable
10/29/2003 01:21:11 PM
thats NASTY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
10/29/2003 11:09:05 AM
NOW we're talkin'! :) Very nicely done -- great skin tones and a great, clean background.

i never thought partial nudity could be so graceful :)

The attitude of the model is a bit to "appealing" to be qualified of "graceful", anyway a nice photo and model, well executed
10/29/2003 04:22:57 AM
Very nice shot indeed. I wish I could get the lighting as good as this.

She's very cute with a good expression. I do wish we could of seen more of her face. Nice job.
