The model I used for this image only does up to implied nudes, so I had to change the image a bit, which on DPC is probably a plus.

This is all natural light on a overcast day.

===============

Yup, my first ribbon :) I'd like to thank everyone who comment both during and after to the challenge... and I'd much like to thank the voters who gave this a high vote. There was some great photos in this challenge, and to be honest, I was afraid that it was going to be an abnormally high scoring challenge and I was going to be one of those 7.no ribboners :)

This photo is part of a ten page spread in this magazine.

Well deserved score and ribbon. I'm not always a fan of your work but from processing to lighting to the tones to desaturation to the pose was really something.
No cheese though?:-)

I am really happy for you Leroy, in that you finally got credit for the work that you do .. Amazing lighting, especially when you consider it is all natural .... I remember asking you to come out to CA to teach me how to light people the way you do (about 2005) .. (MacClavey)I hope to see many more ribbons in the near future.

No wonder she's married... Breathtaking light, pose and PP.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
06/29/2011 12:01:25 PM
If this is who I think it is, you are just a master at nude photography. But for my tastes, I often feel that your backgrounds are not as well thought out as your subjects. Although the bokeh in this case is really fabulous, I feel that it is really fighting for our attention.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
06/28/2011 11:50:51 PM
Well, nudes or even semi nudes have a difficult time getting their due vote so I voted this high for a couple of reasons .. it stands out from truly gratuitous nudes because she really looks the part of a cowgirl who is happy! The hat is well worn, the belly piercing is authentic looking. she is oblivious of the camera .. yep, just happy the hay making is done (grin)

Voted earlier (with my hubby and sons help)
  Photographer found comment helpful.
06/28/2011 08:21:18 PM
Well done... Tones are great... focus is wonderful. Composition is perfect.

I may or may not be voting, so please do not equate my comment with any score.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
06/26/2011 11:04:36 PM
Super sexy! Very well done, and nice choice to BW.
It took me a while to see the crop on the elbow, witch would be the only issue. Great job.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
06/26/2011 09:26:53 PM
probably not going to score high, but i cant find anything wrong with this.

the bokeh, the lighting, shadows under the jaw, even the choice of b/w over color. its perfect.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
06/26/2011 07:01:02 PM
Hey that's my name! Sure this won't score that high bc of the content, but the shot is well done.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
06/26/2011 06:18:19 PM
WOW! This image is STUNNING. The black and white works amazing for this, the focus is soft, yet sharp and the bokeh in this really compliments the image.

The only tiny little thing is the tip of the elbow being cut off, but with a gorgeous image like this, I don't see that as being a problem.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
06/26/2011 04:54:10 PM
Lovely choice of black and white, especially with the peeking underwear.
