If you've read the book you would understand that this editing that was used is exactly how the book is written, it gives off a very moody feel, which so does the book

I love this shot, I think the processing is a little bit harsh and too contrasty, but I feel it actually works for this image. I'm curious if the background is there in real life, neither of which prevented me from marking this high. Good luck.

I'm usually not fond of super-high-contrast, but this one works very well. Not sure about the underwear, but the rose is excellent!

Unique. I like the post processing here as well.

a pretty shot, but the only thing that bothers me is that it looks as if theres a black line parting her but in the center and riding up he ass, it just looks odd to me...

Something about this image strikes me as a bit odd. It seems very artificial and I can't explain why.

nice high contrasty photo. maybe the model is a little too much in the middle.

Does not work for me, sorry
  Photographer found comment helpful.

good pose. nice color treatment. lighting is too harsh. pixelation and aberration at the edges, blown lights. props don't look well chosen, especially the cushion is quite distracting

Awesome composition. You've made the centered comp work really well. I love the processing you did to the image, great tonal range. Very cool. Great job!

Seems a bit overprocessed. Otherwise and interesting image.
  Photographer found comment helpful.

Nice moody shot -- the cushion on the left is distracting however since it pulls the eye right out of the frame.

Derinately a winner in my book.....

Great job on the PP. I like the high contrast shadows and the overall feel of this one.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/29/2007 08:36:24 PM
pull back on the sharpening - it makes the model look like a cut out
  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/29/2007 07:50:48 PM
I love the coloring, but it seems a little over-processed for my taste, especially on the left arm... i do enjoy the composition though! Nicely done

powerful colors. but the lighting could be a little softer IMO
  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/29/2007 10:20:53 AM
i like that theres something in the puc besides just the person. great job!
  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/29/2007 09:12:34 AM
Intresting shot but the processing just doesn't do it for me. To me it looks a little oversharpened.
  Photographer found comment helpful.

that's a nice bird!!!

01/29/2007 06:47:24 AM
Very good shot and preparation. I love the lighting.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/29/2007 05:27:48 AM
I like it, but I'm wondering if you used too much USM. It looks strange.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/29/2007 05:08:30 AM
Just too sexy. I can't say what I'm thinking..I'll probably be banned for life anyway even though I haven't said it.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/29/2007 01:04:18 AM
at first i thought the contrast a little strong but, after considering the title, it seems you've done an interesting job in going OOB - congratulations, and i DO like it!

some of the shadows are distracting, but other than that a wonderful image.
