I guess I could put some details here. :) My cousin Meghan, at her house in the new baby's room. I really liked the red wall, and wanted to test out just how good that VR was on the 18-200mm. Handheld at 1/15 second -- woo!

Just a standing lamp that we dragged from the bathroom, I think it's probably a 60 watt bulb or something...she stood on a step-stool in front of it and I laid down on the bed and contorted until I got the right angle. The wall is painted red, and I did bump the hue/sat a teensy tiny bit but other than a crop, that's about it.

I really really hope this does well, as it's my first shot submitted with the D200.

Her arm is a bit distracting, especially since it has the brightest edge. As it is it reminds me of a tea kettle or mug of sorts.
Full nudity would make for more of an impacting curvature.
The texture of the wall spoils the diffused glow behind her and I would've gone more off-center.

I do love the fuzz on her back and the popped out belly button.

Good luck on a smooth delivery.
