Congratulations, Steve! I think her downcast expression is most intriguing. Lovely form and pose. Well done!

The contrast on this is an excellentbalance and the pose is precise (maybe just a little too precise).
Also, a bit a eye contact may have made for a better connection.
None the less a great shot. well done!

I really like this. Like, "I'd put it on my wall" like it. There are quite a few images in this challenge that have no flaws, but this one goes above and beyond - it's not just flawless, it's refined. You could easily sell hundreds of prints (if you haven't already) at 24x36 (not to me, I'm broke), whereas many of the others would work as a desktop wallpaper for a few days or a week, but not really as a print.

The execution of her pose is wonderful. You must have been very attentive to detail. It's great the way her hands and feet are equidistant apart and her head is aligned with her left foot. Also, her gaze appears to follow the line of her right arm. I'm not crazy about the harsh lighting, looks like hard shadows that were lightened in post by blowing out the back and foregrounds, but then again, this pic seems to be about the contrast between harshness and her softness. I love the way her breast presses against her thigh. Well done and congratulations on the ribbon. I think I'm in love :).

Just goes to show if you hang out in the street long enough even a nude like this will present itself. Good thing you blew out the ATM sign in the background to avoid the distraction.

Woot!! Nicely done Steve, congrats!! I noticed a few comments about her not making eye contact.. I for one love that she isn't. Makes the photo more personal.. like she is just in her own moment reflecting. I find it quite beautiful on many levels. ;) again Congrats!!

Very well done version of a classic pose
  Photographer found comment helpful.

I keep coming back to this image. Very elegant, simple, but elegant.9
  Photographer found comment helpful.
10/01/2009 09:24:25 PM
I find the left foot to be a bit too brightly lit, or maybe it's the position, but I don't think I should be drawn to it the way I am. The edges around the hair are a little soft. (I'm nitpicking of course, this is a great photograph that leaves little else to be desired). /8
  Photographer found comment helpful.
10/01/2009 05:08:42 PM
One of the best I've seen so far. Natural and very artistic.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
10/01/2009 10:34:26 AM
Very nice pose. Nice lighting. Shoulder shadow on thigh a bit distracting. 9!

A classic pose and nicely done on the processing. The only minor nitpik is the blowout in the foreground. 8
  Photographer found comment helpful.

Beautiful clean image, great contrast, well posed.
Although nude, the contrast of the hair draws attention to the face.
one of the best in the challenge
  Photographer found comment helpful.
09/28/2009 12:17:07 PM
Nice, I must say however I am not really liking the hint of color in this one, would have wanted an absolute b/w image but I still like it, 7 from me.

Lovely lighting & everything.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
09/25/2009 03:32:09 PM
The shadow on her right thigh, just above the knee just draws my eye for some reason. Other than that one little flaw, a perfect triangle of composition.

09/25/2009 08:51:13 AM

This is one of the best in the challenge. Very soft lines and a wonderful pose.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
09/25/2009 12:47:40 AM
Nicely lit, albeit in a bit of cliche pose. I guess they're all cliche these days no?

My personal preference would have been to see the model making eye-contact in this instance. Would have given the image a kind of power. Not something that'll drop my score though. Could have raised it maybe, but certainly isn't going down.
