Probably gona regret submitting this one...
It does not show enough BUT probably some are going to think it shows to much. The models did not want to be recognized so I had to crop of the heads... :o)

Oh, I think this is beautiful Ragga! I love that the heads are cropped off because it makes the intimacy the subject. If you could see their heads -- it would be a portrait type photo of THEM. This photo is about the beautiful physical intimacy between people who are in love. I think you did a great job -- and I'm disappointed in the voters for not rating this higher. (Geee. . .wish I had a dollar for every time I'd been disappointed in the voters :) I'd be rich.)

Woah, I don't know why this has scored as low as this. I thought it was 1 of the best outtakes on the challenge!!! Very strong black and white image that meets the challenge extremely well, I don't think you "needed" the heads in this shot. The way it is is more than enough =]

the bodies go very dark in the places that they meet in the center... needs a lot of fill. male model needs more muscle definition in the arm , as well as, less hair on the forearms. i would suggest shave off the arm hair so that it is clean and smooth. also, the pubic hair is rather unsightly at the bottom. the models make the photo, but nice hands!!

This is very good. I especially like the wedding ring. Great lighting effects.

If the lighting were a bit more on where the bodies join it would make this seem less like one single body. Good job on the processing.

I like how the two bodies seem to be merged together.

Close crop did not really work for me.

I like the sensual nature of this photo.
It is beautifully lit and has great dynamic range.
I love the fact that you are showing a commitment in the weding ring. This is no fleeting expression of lust.
Nicely done!

The lighting is nice...I wish the background was completely black. Nice shadowing.
