He's actually not naked at all. He's wearing bottoms.

DNMC?? *smile*


I am so NOT a lighting person. I'm trying to be... but it's all trial and error. It took me a bit to get this, but I think I did! I'm so excited and anxious to see what all of you voters think about this.

Post Voting: THANKS bunches, folks! I'm thrilled with the finish!

I think the human body is a glorious creation!

He has eyes? Oh yes, now you mention it... ;-)))

Wonderful image, Lydia. He's a VERY good looking guy, great body (err.., and eyes ;-). Your lighting is fantastic.

Excellent, Lydia! Congratulations. I am trying to "get" the whole studio lighting thing too. What was your lighting set up for this ?? Its really beautiful! What a flawless model! And such a good sport to pose for you for a nude challenge :)

I didn't get around to voting this challenge (nudes, lighting, people - not something I can do, so not something I judge well) but... well... ummm.... he's related to you, yes? So I can't say anything untoward? I will say you totally nailed the lighting as far as I can judge such things and his eyes REALLY grab you and pull you into the shot. Then the way the body is lit, it becomes a nice "ah ha... yes" kinda thing to go with the eyes. Hopefully not too terribly untoward... :-) VERY nice work.

(P.S. I so wanna say "yum", but that would indeed be inappropriate.)

Very compelling eyes. Liked the light doing highlights and shadows.
  Photographer found comment helpful.

Great portrait. Nice focus on the eyes. Great DOF. I think the Black and white mkaes this even better. Great job. Bumped it up 2 points.

Nice, I like the b/w tones and the lighting.
  Photographer found comment helpful.

I came back to this photo a number of times to make sure I gave it the best vote I could given my interpretation of the shot... his eyes are very captivating, his body young and fresh ... I like his pose and your lighting and your pping in general ... kudos to the model!
  Photographer found comment helpful.

nice to see that a nude male photo can be beautiful too. I think your lighting is perfect.

It's really a strong image for me. love the toning and lighting
  Photographer found comment helpful.

My pick from this challenge. One of a very few (from an already small set of submissions) that really communicates the model's character. Pose is interesting, composition is good, and the lighting is effective. Very well done.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
09/26/2009 08:10:43 PM
Definitely the best one! Love the tones
  Photographer found comment helpful.
09/25/2009 09:45:52 PM
Good lighting. The point of focus is squarely with his eyes, which makes it feel more like a portrait shot than a study on body form. Not that it matters in the context of this challenge. Just an observation.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
09/25/2009 08:53:30 PM
Very good B/W work excellent texture, good pose, and great model. I give this one a 10

09/25/2009 07:43:12 PM
like the light not a bad pose but i don't care for the way his hand looks on the wall
  Photographer found comment helpful.
09/25/2009 07:14:04 PM
Extremely well done. Lighting and texture are lovely.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
09/25/2009 03:47:30 PM
Certainly the eyes have it. Did you spend a lot of time in PS with the eyes or is that reality?
  Photographer found comment helpful.
09/25/2009 11:58:10 AM
Other than I think he needs a haircut, this is a great shot.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
09/25/2009 10:43:12 AM
Makes me think of an Abercrombie and Fitch guy. I hope he's 18. LOL

beautifully posed, lit, and processed
  Photographer found comment helpful.

Nice of use black and white tones and contrast. I would say its more of a portrait than a 'nude' shot but well executed none the less. 8
