The photo inspiration came from a photo titled "Nicole" by René De Carufel in Pro-Lighting Provocative Shots.

Single Light Source is a soft box.

I want to thank Cindi for PP advice. She is a Photoshop Goddess :-) She helped my find my OCD!

I'd really like to thank the voters and all the commenters. I'm very pleased with the finish, especially with all the big dogs that showed up for this challenge. I'm a happy camper.

Was a really fun challenge all the way around.

Leroy this is one heck of composition. Very strong, feel that it is underrated.

Fantastic shot. The lighting and mood of this is enough to inspire.

Very, very nice! This model should be in all of your shots. Pretty girl with a nice shape. Females such as this are always good for artistic renditions of nudes.

Congrats on 15th place. This is one of your best nudes Leroy

Very nice Leroy. One of my picks.

man, I love the warning label... can I steal IT and start putting it all over my photos too? haha, also, I can't get enough of those eyes and perfect eyebrows, great shadowing on the face... still not sure of the arm, but I guess there's not much of any other way it would've still looked this good

You've done a great job of lighting this - I especially enjoy seeing her eye included that way.

Great job!

Seems too focused on her breasts. Try to be more subtle.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
02/04/2007 10:00:06 PM
I think the only thing that detracts this image is the background lines. The remainder of the shot is really well lit, including the catchlight in her shadowed eye. Very beautiful. Good luck.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
02/04/2007 09:30:46 PM
The shadows and the lighting really work well, nice photo.

The way she is looking over her arm is very interesting. Nice lighting. Good luck.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
02/01/2007 04:29:47 PM
really like this, excellent lighting make this simple shot really effective.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
02/01/2007 04:01:28 PM
I really like the eye, it really adds interest, and some mystery
  Photographer found comment helpful.
02/01/2007 12:19:40 AM
I like Anna. And nice lighting!
  Photographer found comment helpful.

Fantastic form, beautifully lit eye, gotta be top 3.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/31/2007 05:22:21 PM
Great picture. I think this would be better with the light a little more behind the subject. This would bring more shadows into the chest area which seems a little too brightly and directly lit. 7
  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/31/2007 03:05:07 PM
very good nude pity about he colour it doesnt do a lot for me natural skin tones would siut better
  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/31/2007 12:33:55 AM
I like the hidden face!
  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/30/2007 11:55:36 PM
Nice lighting. The lighting/shadows and composition make for a very dynamic image. Nice job!
  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/30/2007 11:01:17 PM
I love the lighting, but it would be nice to see a little more of her other eye. Still, I love the shot!
  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/30/2007 01:10:55 PM
Well shot.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/30/2007 10:45:24 AM
Perfect....you got the lighting just right, and a great pose.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/30/2007 08:52:49 AM
very good focus. skin tones seem to be a bit too reddish, crop is a bit too tight. background could be darker. highlight in herleft eye is distracting and should have been cloned out
  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/30/2007 06:40:48 AM
Senious...
  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/30/2007 12:29:10 AM
The shadow of the face makes this photo intriguing. Good composition, but there is a kind of weird imbalance between the breast which is very lit, and the face and arm which are in deep shadow. To me, this makes the breast the primary element, with the face being secondary (which you may have intended, but the face is so nice that I hate to come across it second). Hope this made any kind of sense.

This is a wonderful image! love the model looking through her arm!
  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/29/2007 10:14:53 PM
I love the lighting. The shadows are nice and soft, but strong too! This is very very good. You should do well in this challenge.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/29/2007 09:51:37 PM
I like the idea of having one eye showing like that..adds a bit of intrigue. I also like the square crop for this one.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/29/2007 08:43:56 PM
very nice.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/29/2007 08:37:49 PM
The clarity is excellent... looks almost 3D... I enjoy the sly look in her eye peaking around her arm. Well done!
  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/29/2007 03:50:26 PM
Very nice shot, well executed.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/29/2007 03:26:19 PM
I like the softness of the skin here and the contact with the models eye is good. But I find the background and the slight glint from the models eye in the shadow a little distracting (just my humble opinion)
  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/29/2007 02:54:23 PM
excellent, the eye locks you in and bring you into the image to engage the viewer. lighting is well done also. 8
  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/29/2007 02:41:15 PM
Love the light and coloring here.

01/29/2007 02:27:15 PM
Very nice... I have nothing more to say about this one.

01/29/2007 02:10:35 PM

01/29/2007 01:28:10 PM
A great capture- i like the partial light on one eyes as it gives a mysterious feel to it
  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/29/2007 11:44:36 AM
Nice work with the eyes.

Wow! A real woman asking the real question.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/29/2007 05:23:50 AM
nice... but it went wrong with the pp. the gaussian blur is leaving grey and arange/pink glows.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/29/2007 05:08:24 AM
nice softness and lighting
  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/29/2007 03:15:44 AM

love the lighting on the face. Beautiful eye! Breast looks distorted by the way the photo is cropped
  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/29/2007 12:21:00 AM
Really lovely. The lighting and show of one eye is perfect. I'm wondering about the one arm being up. Hmmmm ... I'll come back to it.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/29/2007 12:20:32 AM
I love the one eye looking through the framing. Very nice shot. 7
