Many thanks go out to my husband who endured hours hiking out in the frigid cold to find an interesting spot to set up a shot. Finding a area exclusive enough was hard, as there were a few hikers about. Finally settled on this spot and vantage. The sun was just going down and the lighting was fading quickly. My original idea was to incorporate a reflection as the main subject. Did take some more close ups but settled on this image.

The title refers to the quote 'Light at the end of the tunnel'. He is 'My Light'.

Thanks for all the wonderful comments. It was a fun learning experience. Hopefully the next nude challenge will be in warmer weather. I look forward to giving it another try and incorporating many of your fantastic and helpful ideas.

I don't mind the subject matter, but I feel it's such a small portion of the image, that it's causing the subject to be non-apparent.

This would have been much more interesting as a close shot.

Very compelling. I love the framing job, the colors, the lighting, the scenery. Fantastic. 10!

I believe this is one of the few (or maybe the only?) nature shot. and I think you did good. the bridge (at least, I think it's a bridge) frames the scene well. bumping up!

the disturbance in the water is distracting but props to your model that ventured out in the woods naked.

I like this image quite a lot. I think it would be stronger if the subject was a little more to the left. At the moment he is a little too central. 7

I like the creativity you used. the only problem is that the subject is a bit too small in the picture

the man is slightly motion-blurred, the image looks like a voyeur shot with the huge dark area around

Great shot

Nice idea, reflection good too. Pity the subject is a bit on the small side, but I guess with the framing the options may have been a bit limited. 6

Interesting variation on a common pose. These types of nudes usually are shot with a female model. This one is a bit unexpected. The focus seems a little soft.

Really interesting composition and nice to see something slightly different :o)

sort of overwhelmed by its surroundings but has a sort of tranquil feeling

An interesting setting! I like the duality of the reflection.
  Photographer found comment helpful.

Iteresting framing, but i feel like a little of the frame could be lost in interest of getting a sharper shot of the figure. Nice idea.

I like the "nature boy" aspect of this. I wonder if it will be voted lower because you are just as much a part of the shot as the other elements. I do like it. Nice light, reflection and tone. 7

I like the use of the natural border, not sure about the male model. I would've preffered to see a woodnimph kinda woman I think. But they allways seem to hide huh? ;-)
