This shot really works in the centered composition. Nice job!

I never tire of these tummy shots. Well lit. A bit of uneven skin tones (left arm) make this lower than it would have been. But, it's beautiful. I with I had one of these of MY mom's tummy. Good for you!

Very intersting choice for this competition. seems a bit dark though. I'd actually like to see more of the arms holding the belly. But nice work.

The subject fills the middle and right hand side of the frame. The left is empty. This doesn't make a centred composition.

Nice selective lighting. I like the darkness around the subject.
