I love the way the model is posed, so 40's like, so open to being photographed in such an exposed way. She is either extremely comfortable in her own skin or she trusts you absolutely implicitly. Posing in such a way is extremely difficult to do and have the effect as beautiful as this. Even the way the fabric is draped feels completely natural and totally unstaged. Her face is lit perfectly, her chest is awesomely lit (despite what other people have said) and the entire composition is stunning... almost to the point of being like an alabaster statue.

I'll bet she was very pleased with the outcome. Thank you for sharing this.

A very beautiful image which should have placed way higher. Nonetheless a great pic... congrats Rudy

Yes I agree this should have finished stronger. Its soft, clear, and the lighting is terrific. I also see a hint of classic nudity, (my personal favorites). I'm not a huge fan of this new school nude photography, nor am I a fan of the top three photos in this challenge. In my opinion, you nailed a unique shot by ironically going classic. I can't say enough about this image, so I better stop. Great job.

I think that this entry is near perfect and my choice for 1st place. The softness is incredible and the pose perfect- very 1940's to me.

I'm guessing you carefully applied neatimage/noiseninja to parts of the image, or your model has the most amazingly smooth skin. Either way, a great image, perfectly lit and post-processed. The pose is classic glamour, and the see-through fabric adds interest.

maybe a little less NeatImage?

Wonderful and beautiful shot. I like the soft feel of this, great lighting.

Nice execution on a classic pose. It seems the NeatImage was a little overdone and the skin has lost nearly all texture.

The softness gives this a nice feeling. Good luck!

seems like a bit too much neat image, compo and pose look fine. would love to see more of her face.

Nice soft lighting and a nice soft image. well exposed and I like the crop & composition. There is a strange bright spot between the breasts.

Yeah i would say she is exposed.

The model looks very uncomfortable here which is quite off putting. The lighting is nice and I like the B&W :o)

very good b/w tones. good pose and epression. very good lighting on her body, a bit too hard on her face - creates a distracting shadow. had cropped less tight at right

Nicely exposed. Framing is different and unusual. Nice effort!

i like everthing about this except the position of the head
which may have worked except the hair on the forehead ..

good. 8

I like the shot and for the most part the lighting, but for some reason the skin "softness" is bothering me.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/29/2007 02:03:24 PM
Lovely delicate lighting. I'm not sure whether the head being tipped away from the camera works for me.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/29/2007 01:51:23 PM
The highlight on the chest is a lil distracting though the soft skin tones and the pose is nice
  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/29/2007 01:49:56 PM
like the soft lighting.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/29/2007 01:20:48 PM
Great smooth skin - Love to know how you achieved this.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/29/2007 01:14:56 PM
Nice shading from the lower left up to the model's shoulder. Nice curves in the composition as well. There's a bit of a glare(?) at the top of her stomach that is somewhat perplexing.

Classic pose, beautiful light and composition. I think the tie of the top is a tad distracting. 7
