Woohoo! Congrats, Jojo! Well-deserved new 2nd-best score. And top 20, to boot.

Four 6+ scores in 6 tries - you're on a roll! :)

So creative! The shapes camouflage their bodies that I find myself seeking out familiar forms like their arms, so you've caught and kept my attention. I think it might have been even stronger to have had their stark eyes within a black stripe, but that's very minor. Great composition, too!

Someone else using body paint I like the way you think =) I love the pose and how they are blending into each other.

Another cool idea, but the picture is just not my favorite.

Very cool and creative. Nice framing, lighting and subject matter,

Georgeous... would be amazing on a wall on a huge scale!

For all the incredible work put into painting the models, posing the models, etc., it's too bad the background doesn't do the shot justice. If the background were stark white, the impact would be so much more dramatic, IMHO.
