lol. you stole my pose from last week ; o ) (Sins challenge)

I'm sorry, but what is pornographic about this image? Why do people have such a problem with it?

Nice photo, congratulations on a relatively high placing. It's just a shame that several people unjustly marked you down.

This was my favorite shot of all this week. But, what do I know I'm just another accused smut-monger.

good use of b/w, and I haven't liked many b/w this challenge due to lack of drama, and this is very dramatic.

Like I told the other person...this bad nudity gets you nowhere, you just watch.

nice ass
10/26/2002 09:33:00 PM

I love this, WHY! didn't you do it in color?
10/24/2002 06:58:00 PM
Can't say I'm crazy about the subject, being a man (not in THAT good of shape), but this is very, very well done. I hope the ladies are happy!!! 9 Swash

really acentuates the buttocks and upper muscles! nice photo.

Nice use of negative space. I like the fact that we can't see the head, the lines of torso and legs are enough.
10/23/2002 10:41:00 AM
Very nice lighting. Did he shave?

Marvelous profile; an excellent use of the dark. Professional result, with excellent taste and composition. Congratulations.
10/23/2002 03:22:00 AM
Too much negative space perhaps?
10/23/2002 01:35:00 AM
Nice outline, great lighting on the curves. I like how you cannot see where his front ends and the background begins. Also, on a more serious note, nice buns.
10/22/2002 11:43:00 PM
This was done very well. Just the right amount of form where more would
not have been better. Excellent shot! -Clicker-

Great use of light to accent the model. We have a winner!
10/22/2002 05:39:00 PM
nice pict. needs a bir of focuse tho.

PS: who gave u permission to shot me?
10/22/2002 11:15:00 AM
strong composition and line...and excellent light play. just the right touch on focus to enhance this shot. Perfect! (10) ~mcmurma

Nice pose. Very nice use of lighting. Focus seems soft and it bothers me to see some background. I would prefer it to be all black. ~indigo997

Great shot. I love your your use of negative space to really accentuate the lighting and composition. lhall

could have been a beautiful picture, the effect of the little on the upperback muscles is interesting and dramatic, but for somereason the over all effect is wakward, making his bttocks unnaturally pronounced as if his posture is extremelybad . If you look at it the right way, you can see a gapping mouthed demon face in his back.

An 8 on a porn web site but a 1 here. Doesn't belong here on a family web site. I have to keep chasing my grandchildren out of the room.
10/21/2002 07:43:00 PM
I like the way you used the light source the image could be a bit sharper
10/21/2002 05:11:00 PM
well executed. classic. 6
10/21/2002 04:50:00 PM
a nude... male?!?!? = ) Excelent negative spade. The form of the body is shown wonderfully. Great composition as well. I like that no visable part of the body reaches the edge of the frame, and also that the head is not visable at all. Beautiful (coming from a straight male at that). 8 wingy

Great lightning. Perfect exposure. One of two favourites this week. Well done! /carsten
10/21/2002 02:12:00 PM
Excellent photo. Good use of light. Very dramatic. Looks like a Calvin Klein ad. Very professional looking.
10/21/2002 01:52:00 PM
Nicely lit, though it seems like it could be a bit sharper on his back.
10/21/2002 09:53:00 AM
Great use of lighting. This is really well taken. I'm not wild about the subject (would be better if it was Elizabeth Hurley) but this is well done. - 9 - Inspzil

perfect shut, AND PERFECT BODY!... (may I have his phone #? just kidding)... ;) good luck!
10/21/2002 08:19:00 AM
Excellent photo... very good work here... I think this composition could be even stronger if your subject was on the left side of the frame rather than the right since the light is coming in from the right... great work :) - setzler

Reminds me of Mapplethorpe. Nicely done.
