Did you get your studio wet Nasti? Great image. The water and creative lighting really work well together. Congrats!
  Photographer found comment helpful.
02/05/2007 08:28:10 AM

What a great capture this is. Hope this does well for you.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
02/03/2007 05:40:00 PM
Nice. Left wondering what a slightly longer exposure would have looked liked, giving the water (and the shot) a softer look and effect.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
02/03/2007 01:33:14 PM
gooooooooood shot. very nice, the water looks great, perfect lighting for the use of water... great job.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
02/03/2007 12:44:41 PM
If it's a pleasure, why does this model have such a neutral facial expression? Well exposed, well conceived image, although her left arm looks like it's not attached to her body.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
02/03/2007 07:13:54 AM
very well done
  Photographer found comment helpful.
02/02/2007 06:14:43 PM
Just love how the water splashes off her. Very nice. Definitely a top pick
  Photographer found comment helpful.
02/02/2007 03:20:24 PM
nice and taste 6
  Photographer found comment helpful.
02/02/2007 02:03:36 PM
Great shot, liked the shutter speed you used to show the movement of the water yet not overly blurred. My only other comment is on the possition of the back arm, looks a tad awkward from the angle of the shot.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
02/02/2007 08:43:00 AM
Great shot!
  Photographer found comment helpful.
02/02/2007 08:29:48 AM
Very nice. I like how you captured the water, good lighting.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
02/02/2007 06:52:44 AM
Concept, lighting, model, pose - your shot is well done in all aspects. The only thing I do not like that much ist her facial expression. It doesnt look like "pleasuer" IMHO...
  Photographer found comment helpful.
02/02/2007 01:43:13 AM
Very sexy and a beautiful body really helps here one of my top images
  Photographer found comment helpful.
02/01/2007 10:15:37 PM
this is very elegant, i ike the body pose and movement of the water, very beautiful model and well lit
  Photographer found comment helpful.
02/01/2007 10:12:45 PM
Great shot. I would like to see a smile on her face, if the experience was pleasurable.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
02/01/2007 04:32:19 PM
Great idea,model,water, and lighting. The only thing is I would like to see it a little more in focus.I think that this will hold this picture back from a ribbion. You have still captered a sensual feeling, wonderful job. Good luck. 10
  Photographer found comment helpful.
02/01/2007 04:27:57 PM
very effective use of B&W and great lighting on the model and the water - 8
  Photographer found comment helpful.
02/01/2007 02:46:22 PM
Nice composition, not a very original idea but I'm sure you have racked up plenty of views :o) The models right arm doesn't look very comfortable but the image is nice and sharp and I like your choice of B&W
  Photographer found comment helpful.
02/01/2007 12:29:10 PM
Love the addition of water.. its a sensual element.
Lighting is awesome.. pose is attractive and natural
Model of course beautiful body

dig it muchly ;)

01/31/2007 09:52:05 PM
Excellent
  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/31/2007 05:34:25 PM
I think i'd use a faster shutterspeed to really freeze the raindrops. but ofcourse I dont know if that's what you wanted to go for. nice b/w conversion!!
  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/31/2007 04:08:37 PM
:) dont tease me
  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/31/2007 02:04:05 PM
nice creativity and use of lighting!
  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/31/2007 01:52:15 PM
Nice job!!! The pose could be a little more relaxed IMHO. Maybe if the model had dropped her right hand behind her and leaned more into the water.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/31/2007 02:15:04 AM
kind of a funny pose but a nice picture none the less
  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/31/2007 12:44:16 AM

Awesome!
  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/30/2007 05:29:01 PM
Beautiful image with a refreshing feeling added by the water. Perfect shutter speed captured the droplets as slight streaks, adding movement. Nicely done!
  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/30/2007 01:20:58 PM
Well shot. Good lighting.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/30/2007 07:07:10 AM
good lighting and crop. exposure should have been shorter to have less blur in hte drops
  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/30/2007 12:37:54 AM
Nice 'N Refreshing. Like the lighting and B&W. A ribbon for sure.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/29/2007 09:32:27 PM
Very nice lighting. Well done....I'll be surprised if not in the top 10...even though I have only seen 22/123 images.

01/29/2007 09:12:16 PM
Excellent water effect. I like this!
  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/29/2007 08:58:29 PM
great shot. the water and lighting works great here and her pose seems to fit very nicely. I got nothing to help you so you get a 10:)
  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/29/2007 08:26:01 PM
very nice shot.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/29/2007 04:53:32 PM
I love water and nudes. This is a superb shot. I'm not too sure about the position of her left arm which seems numb to me. Also, personally I always recommend the mouth be opened when the model tilts her head upwards (even if there is water) because it always looks more natural and more sensual as well. My two cents on a great shot. 8
  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/29/2007 02:27:18 PM
very good idea and wellhandled well posed
  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/29/2007 02:19:53 PM
Beautiful photo
  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/29/2007 02:05:21 PM
A good shot in terms of balance, pose, framing and idea. I think the lighting lets it down a little as (for me) her face is too dark while her tummy is a little burnt out.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/29/2007 11:28:20 AM
Absolutely fantastic.
The water element really adds something to it.
Ribbon worthy - and good luck !

Now these are the types of water drop shots I want to see ;-)

Classic shower pose. Should do well. Great pose and B & W conversion.

The pinnacle of human body form. Beautifully posed, lighting spot on and the composition excellent.

that's hot!!
  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/29/2007 03:10:01 AM
I like the lighting and exposure of this shot. I would be interested to see this same shot with a longer shutter speed to blur the motion of the water more. Good focus and composition.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/29/2007 01:24:22 AM
very cool, love the pose, fantastic sharpness
  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/29/2007 01:16:19 AM
Love the lighting.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/29/2007 01:13:32 AM
a bit of light on her face would have made this better
  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/29/2007 01:12:06 AM
A circular darker spot on the small of the back is a bit distracting but other than that, this is just perfect. Very very beautiful lighting, composition, and subject.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/29/2007 01:05:44 AM
and the pleasure is ... all mine ... nice shot, like the lighting and the composition
  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/29/2007 12:59:16 AM
Very similar to another shot and alomst looks like the same model. Hmmm. I guess I like them both the same.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/29/2007 12:39:05 AM
Nasti? gotta be. the model and water look familiar, and of course the lighting and technicals are perfect...all this spells a Kapluggin shoot if I ever saw one :)

well done

Great idea. Love the clarity, beautiful model! An 8.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/29/2007 12:22:35 AM
Nice capture...

I am curious, how does one get such a nice black background while having the water...

What is your studio set-up for this?
