Another fault with my camera! I was setting the camera for the shot at 50 ISO, tried a sample one with no background and the model in a wrong position and turned out good, sharp and in focus... then I went setting the background and the model's position, my camera turned off and when I turned it on again it had switched to 200 ISO but I didn't notice until I downloaded the pictures to my computer...

I had this picture in mind very sharp, with a metallic look, but it turned out very noisy and with a lot of grain... I'm quite disappointed, but all the same I like the picture enough!

Thanks a lot to my model, she was very patient and collaborative :)

i really like this shot, i love the way you captured the hair in mid-bounce, and although not your intention i like the look the grain gives it. nicely done

I love this one and though it's not a colour I would have thought of, it works wonderfully :)

I've found that "surface blur" at low settings can give me better results with some kinds of noise than the special noiseware products.
It smooths out flat surfaces like the background without affecting detailed parts. It might work here? :)

I love the composition & lighting, and the model is beautiful. I do feel that the noise of the photo is a bit distracting.

Beautiful! Only nitpick is the back of the upper left arm is showing and the right is not - I'm freaky for symmetry sometimes. Still, the hair is awesome, the lighting great, the model gorgeous and the processsing excellent. ...plus it's a naked chick so you know it will score well. ;-)

A well deserved 9 from me. Good luck.

Love the monotones of this photo. It is simple yet effective with the extra surpirse of the tatoo. One of my favourites in this challenge.

like the hair, but there is way too much noise/pixelation here for me which doesn't seem to serve an artisitc purpose
