The point of focus is just in front of the model - it doesn't escape me that one way to remedy that would be for the viewer (camera) to move closer, thus reinforcing the meaning within the shot. Great work.

Great composition... the focus is the face but you can wander around the frame and see other interesting parts. I wish there was a little more light on the face and eyes. I like the lines on the floor to pull you into thte shot. 8

It seems like the better lighting would be more on the face and less on the derriere?

This could have been just as seductive without the full nudity, maybe more so.

Since you have made such a fuss, via private message, about my initial comment above, I decided to come back and give it another look. It reminds me of an early Marilyn Monroe type of shot. There is too much light on her hair and backside in the background, detracting from her face and eyes, which could be absolutely captivating if better highlighted. Perspective is nice. I have adjusted my score accordingly.

title hurts this one

My idea is that her face should be brighter than her bottom, how it is now I find it distracting. Or have her pose in a way that bottom and feet are hidden behind her face.

Nice angle to shoot.

Nothing subtle about that seduction.

Really interesting shot - there are certainly quirky elements like the twists of the body, the breast peeking through the curve of her arm . . the lighting - darker at the front and lightening up as it goes away . . but for all that it's a striking image.

Or maybe it is those elements that make it a striking image. ;- )

comp and lighting are good, but I really don't like the models expression. I think this photo would be better served with her looking away from the camera.

How may people are in this photo?

I'm not sure I'd call laying on a hardwood floor while completely naked is subtle. She looks contorted, not comfortable.

Lighting overall is pretty good, but her face is really dark.

The framing is interesting but I think the light needs work to let us see her face more clearly as the main focus of the shot.
