Guess who! Couldn't help myself :-) Used a borrowed wedding dress from Ryan's sister's first wedding. Stood on the trunk in the downstairs studio, lit from the right side only to create more dramatic shadows.

No idea why I shot so slowly, but I did!

Hey there from the Critique Club

My thoughts on the image: I do indeed like the ass. That's my first thought. I do also like the mono-toning that you created with your post-processing. The tones are nice, but a little flat to my eye. The pose is classic, and I like the flow that you created with your positioning.

My ideas for improvement: I don't care for the crop that you chose for the image. The narrow frame makes my eye feel trapped and unable to explore. The focus also seems soft to me. I am guessing that this was a self-portrait which would perhaps explain the softness.

Where I would have/did score this entry: I didn't vote on any entries from the nude challenge this time around as I have spent far too much time at work lately. Had I cast a vote in this entry, it would have probably fallen into the 4-5 range. I do love the idea of your image here, and I think you have a really, really strong start. I jut think that the execution and main focal area should have been in a different area. Nice work, and again, I do like the butt you presented here.

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

During voting I truly enjoyed this one. In fact, I gave you a 9. I think this was under rated. Good shot

The crop is not very appealing. I think that if it was a standard portrait crop this would score much higher from me.

You have a couple of spots on the clothing that are blown out. The lighting could be a litle softer and that may have helped. I would als say to show some lower back and add a little more interest to the photo. Not a bad shot, jsut could use a little help.

A little too confined, which leaves me feeling a bit claustrophobic.
