This is really beautiful. Wonderful lines and creativity. Nicely done, with a score not reflected by the artistry here.

Simply amazing... I'm sorry I didn't get the opportunity to vote on this one - it would have scored VERY well with me!

This looks so pieceful. All of its parts aligned so perfectly much like a contortionist's nirvana.

I should have guessed who the photographer was since you are already one of the few listed as a one of my favourites! For a fairly off-the wall entry 16th is pretty good placing - there is hope for DPC yet...

Wow, I have just noticed this was taken in York - freaky! I haven't been into town in ages, this has reminded me that I must.

Well - the "top' is right there, but I do get it :)

Absolutely love this image - the high contrast and dramatic lighting really work here

Good catch. Nice lighting and composition. The vertical line is straight, but the horizontal is a bit off, indicating maybe you took the picture at a slight angle panning towards the right a tiny bit.

Cool photo but doesnt meet the challenge. The top is present. 6 for a cool photo though the top left corner imperfections bother me.

Looking forward to seeing who the photograpgher is and looking throughthe rest of their portfolio! I have come back to this a number of times over the course of voting saving it for last. The composition is superb with a really strong triangular emphasis. The concept is novel, and works so well - I love the way the mannequin is straring at - or past - her own knee. The vertical light on the wall is perfect in its subtelty. The whites on the arm are blown (at least on my monitor)which doesn't really seem to matter - the only tiny thing I would change (which perhaps could be altered under advanced editing) would be to have a bit more definition on the hand. That said, still a 10 from me.

I enjoy this image, it is fun, although the focus I believe is more on the top, than the topless of the image. but very nicely done overall.

Nice composition

That is just spectacular. So artsy (I'm sure the voters will not appreciate this). I hope I'm wrong.
  Photographer found comment helpful.

forgive me for being extremely pedantic here, but nothing's really topless here...just in bits.

ETA: Well, thinking about it, the legs are, I suppose. I've changed my vote. Many apologies

shame about the overexposure on the whites. like the subject and composition, looks surreal 7

Like the idea but a closer crop would have made it more effective for me.
