Congratulations on your 16th placing. Top 20 here is very good because this was a hot challenge. Your image impressed me and I delight in seeing again. You did a very good job.

Congrats my girl!

Yay! Thanks guys!

The white thing is actually a couch in the lobby of my studio, not a bed, so it was very hard to get all of her on the thing, that's why there is that corner.

I have never seen the movie "Titanic", so I thought everyone was talking about Titan- the Renaissance painter. Hence, I was pretty darn confused!

And I like her tattoo and piercing, because it places the picture in the modern era very specifically, even though it's soft and classy. Kind of a little postmodern thing I guess.

I like the softness in this image. The eye contact with the camera can not help but draw you in.

Did you try to see what this pic looked like in B&W? Nice picture with a pretty model. Good job.

Very well done, a beautiful model, beautiful ets, hair and lips. Color is superb. 7

I love your model's comfortable, matter-of-fact gaze into the lens. I like how her dark eyes, hair, and lips punctuate the otherwise soft light image. Very nicely done.

Le Grande Odalisque... Very beautiful. I love the colors and depth of your image. It's like she's looking at me only. -10-

nicely difused.. i think the softness fits the image well..bottom right corner bothers me though.. maybe reshoot with her moving so that you only get bed..still a good shot

Lovely tones, and a great job with the eyes and lips.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
08/27/2004 05:25:15 AM
I quite like this, I'm not to sure about the angle of composition, it is a little awkward for me to view. The problem is my eyes wander between her eyes and her breasts they are both equal focal points for me

I like the softness of this shot. really good. bump up from a 9 to a 10

Great use of soft focus!
  Photographer found comment helpful.
08/26/2004 07:58:20 AM
The soft focus, unsharpned image works very well. It seems like a picture. Great shot. I saw some piece of something in the nose at bottom, may be a piercing that at first... third... look seems to be a noise distracting thing.

08/25/2004 03:14:56 PM
good focus on the head and eyes, but the focus on the body looks unnaturally soft. the edge of the bed shoulod not have been included.

Cute model -- very Old Style photo

I have been drawn to this repeatedly. I love the eye contact with the model & the viewer.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
08/24/2004 05:24:46 PM
this looks like a renaissance painting. I love the soft treatment. I probably would have had her take out her nosepin though, seems out of place. very nicely done.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
08/24/2004 04:51:35 PM
This reminds me of a painting - she's just so beautiful and the pose is somewhat Rubenesque. Note I don't mean that she's fat, I mean she looks sensuous. You've captured that very well. I think background lets this shot down a lot though, especially the edge of the bed being in frame.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
08/24/2004 11:58:21 AM
Very nice classic rendition. The only negative I see is the bottom right corner. wish the bed was not cut off there.

Terrific composition, excellent lighting & tones. 10+
  Photographer found comment helpful.
08/24/2004 08:32:54 AM
I wasn't sure about this when I first saw it, but her face keeps drawing me back. It's so well focussed and would be an excellent portrait even if it was just her face. It really reminds me of the rubenesque paintings - it's just beautiful. Well done [7]

wowey, this photo is so reminiscent of a Victorian painting.

Many good things here and probably the image with the most potential I have seen thus far.

The soft focus is perfect - many try this but seldom get it right. The colors are to die for, muted a touch but with a vast range of differences.

Facial expression is Victorian and perfect for the photo - almost innocent i feel.

My gripes are with her lying on a bed - a nice chair or old settee would be more fitting I feel rather than everyday sheets. You can see all the crease etc in the sheet which takes a little away from the photo. 9

Apart from that though - this is top notch!

This is very nice- I like the soft focus- She has a great expression- This is a great sensual photo- great job

Wow. I can't think of anything else to say about this shot at the moment.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
08/24/2004 01:26:11 AM
Wow, she's beautiful and that stare! That stare is what gets me. I love the soft focus and it's been used very well here. I only wish the edge of the bed/couch/whatever wasn't visible in the bottom right. Still, I give it a 9.

Nicely balanced, the model's expression conveys a lot. One of my favorites in the challenge. 10

08/23/2004 08:24:16 PM
Good color and lighting, I think the soft focus works well. I don't have anything against nose rings or whatever, but in this case that little bright spot seems to attract too much attention away from your model's pretty face.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
08/23/2004 05:49:10 PM
Nicely composed. Beautiful model. The soft blur works really well with this image. Good job.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
08/23/2004 05:18:28 PM
Very "Titanic"-ish! I don't mean she's huge... I mean it looks like the picture Leonardo DiCaprio painted of Kate Winslet in the movie :)
  Photographer found comment helpful.
08/23/2004 04:46:22 PM
Good soft focus on the body but still eyes look sharp.
Realy beutifull model and a good pose.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
08/23/2004 04:13:08 PM
Beautiful, I like the painting effect...the Titanic pose....Only thing I would change is maybe include her elbow instead of cutting it off. 8

08/23/2004 04:12:48 PM
I like the softness in this shot... makes me want to lay down and take a nap (I mean that in a good way). The nose piercing is a little distracting to me though.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
08/23/2004 03:15:18 PM
I like this over all. I don't like not seeing all or none of the tat. Her hair, the light and expression is awesome. Pretty work. 9

08/23/2004 03:13:18 PM
Ahck. I guess you can't click add favorite and write a comment.

Which sucks since I left you a really nice comment as I was adding this photo to my favorites last night.

Anyway, in short, just wanted to say that the soft focus here works pefectly,really set the mood.

The model post is relaxed, and the fact she's looking at the camera really for some reason just adds to the beauty of her and the photo.

And lastly, this looks like a painting. I'm not sure exactly how you got that eddect, but I really love it. Anyway gave you a 10.

Simply beautiful. The soft tones and soft focus work extremely well. Your model is beautiful and her pose is sensuous. Great entry!!
  Photographer found comment helpful.
08/23/2004 11:16:15 AM
Very nice shot, with a classic art feel to it. Only the edge of the bed dectracts badly from this shot. Her expression makes this shot work so well. Nice soft-focus effect.

I like everything except the triangular spot in the lower right hand corner
  Photographer found comment helpful.
08/23/2004 08:24:12 AM
Very good head shot. You may consider cropping it to show head and shoulders only. Great eyes. The nose pin takes away from the model's beautiful face.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
08/23/2004 01:23:07 AM
beautiful eyes....

this would have gotten a much better rating if it had a deeper depth of field and didn't blur out ...

Amazing girl, i like the expression and the skin color... just the right amout of post procession... the air in relly good, beautifull eyes... and amazing lips.. well done... a10, a ribbon winner to me

i think an indirect gaze would have made for a better photo. the gaze is almost confrontational in its character. otherwise the technical aspects of the photo are very good, very 'professional' like.

very nice, pure nude shot. very tasteful. I love the soft focus in this shot; it works great.
