Looks really grainy. Kind of a cool composition however. Definetely unique, good job. :)

Very interesting shot, and an excellent example of "grain" lending mood to an image. I might have used something to erase the footprints and tire marks on the ground to give it a cleaner feel. It also looks like you need a slight burn on the hands/lower back area where the hands fade into the back a bit. One of my favorites. 9

magic. can't tell if you burned the vignette around her or if this is from your lens, but it works wonderfully (i did it on mine too). the high-key contrast is awesome, and the grain really works given the subject. Aside from this challenge i don't think I'd have cropped it that way, but given the rules, you had to. very creative. P

well, this is not screaming Viva Las Vegas at me. So I'm not sure what the title is about. I really like the shot, though. grainy, vignetted, super tones. like a Holga gone wild. Maybe just a touch close on the top and bottom crop.. nicely done. 8

like this one a lot. it looks perhaps a bit too posed, but i am not sure about that - still deciding ;) love the light.

Centered, yes. Interessting? To say the least. But this seems only to be a photo of a naked woman in nature. She is slightly overexposed (photographically). I think I would prefer either the color original or perhaps something more in the background for interest. Perhaps some slave/fetish gear or some lash marks to add intersst.

Blows my mind..!! Top three!

Interesting nude. I like the tones and graininess of the photo.

Very intriguing shot and I am not even a man! Extremely well done, and the B & W was a great choice -- that's what makes it so classy, but not dull. This is another one I hope people don't make a issue of a perfectly centered "object".

great one! This must score high, and not because it shows a naked woman, but because of the use of light and the adding of grain is superb, her hands are not only hiding her butt (excuse me if this isn't a decent English word, but I don't know many words for it in English and this one seemed the most decent one..) but they become part of the whole picture.. the background works just right for the paleness of the model and her hair!

I like the contrasts of flesh and rock and tones here. Also love the high grain. Though subjects pose is different and interesting, not sure what it's significance is. Minor issue is the visible tracks on the floor. This image sure leaves me thinking and returning. 9

I like how you used grain or noise.
