Hey there from the Critique Club

My thoughts on the image: My first impression of the image is that there is far too much fabric:skin for this one to fit into the nude challenge. I tend to agree with the thoughts of Billy, Maggie, Anthony, and Larus on this thought. The angle is interesting, but it feels more awkward to my eye than it should.

My ideas for improvement: Get the model nekkid. I, along with most of your voter here, expected more skin in order to fit these entries well into the challenge criteria.

Where I would have/did score this entry: I didn't vote in this particular challenge, but this probably would have hit somewhere in the 3-4 range considering that I would consider it a shoehorn. I like the image and the suggestion of nude here, but I think that there is too much fabric to fairly be considered a nude entry.

Thank you for the opportunity to provide a critique on your entry,

I like the angle and the DOF. I think this is an amazing image.

I'll like this a lot, but cannot explain why. Perhaps a sense a story when I look at it. 9

"We're all nude under our clothes." Takes a moment to get the upside down perspective, but that's ok.

I've always thought that less is more.. and here is a perfect example. Very nice in B&W.

Sorry, but what is nude about this shot? Your model is showing waaaay more clothes than skin. Look don´t want to be on the "DNMC" police force but this is not what I would classify a nude so I knocked off a couple of points.

I think wearing a jacket takes away from the nude aspect, especially if you don't do much to give the impression of being nude underneath. Your lines guide you to the hands gripping the jacket, putting more focus on the clothing.

Photographed from an interesting angle however I find it difficult to see how this photo fits in the nude category. Perhaps lighting more of the cleavage area would bring this shot closer to meeting the criteria of the challenge.

Interesting composition.

Nice concept. Maybe just a little more upper body skin, to give it a more implied nudity aspect. The legs are perfect the way they are though. Nice job.
