Well, I'm either going to have to join the gym and attend the beauty clinic (for quite some time) or wait for expert editing and learn how to use the liquify tool to change my shape and the dodge and burn tool to add some abs to look like that. Nah, it'll never work.

Another awesome photo - this challenge has really got people going. As a straight man, this sort of shot usually doesn't have the appeal of similarly posed photos of female models, but this one really does speak to me and grabs my attention. The pose is great, and I love the flow of the shirt and tie into the frame. The lighting is spot on and really suits the mood of the shot, as does the black and white treatment. I'm not sure this will ribbon as there are some really strong contenders this week, but I'm confident this will score well and place highly. Good luck!

I love this photo. It has wonderful movement and is well-composed. Two critiques: there is not enough light on the model's face (it just needs a little more) and the tie is not very distinct from the shirt, which is a problem if that is the 'product' of this image.

An outstanding image that could easily be published in a fashion magazine.

good job! this reminds me of that tv commerical...."look at your man; back at me; at him; now back at me" lol although I can't remember what that commerical is for

I've decided to comment on every shot in this challenge, since I'm sitting at 0 comments, and I'd rather try and take a positive approach to this rather than simply whining about my score:

Wonderful studio shot with some great dynamic and energy. I'm sure your score reflects your time and effort in getting this image. For my part, I think it focuses a little too much on body-form than fashion, but I'm sure I'm a minority.

This just might be the blue. Stellar all around. Lighting, pose, processing, the incredibly crisp shirt, those abs... A fave.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
04/29/2010 06:08:49 AM
Congratulations, this is the best entry of this challenge in my opinion. Gave it a 9. I love the composition, attitude, light. The B&W processing really adds to it too.
The only thing I would have addressed is the background: I can see some noise, especially around the head and body, but this may be due to the picture's scale.
