Cool idea.
Like the lighting.
The cropped foot seems to look wrong, may have been better to see the whole foot.

gorgeous.. and a little bit eerie. The blue cast reminds me of crime shows, and the dirt.. blood.
Or is it just morbid me? Whatever it is, I adore it.

Really neat shot. I think my favorite so far. Love the color and the angle and framing/cropping are excellent. I like how this is very diagonal and leads you right into the photo. Focus and clarity are perfect and I just love it. ~Heather~

I like the tone you've chosen. I'm not really a fan of the angle you've selected but hey, that's a subjective thing.

returning for comments.
A very strong image with wonderful lines and good perpective angle. I loke the coloration. I am not conviced of the marble look, yet I do not dismiss it the quality of the effect.

yeah very unique -good thinking here. Also with the marble effect you ahve used a blue cast - probably the first person to sue a color cast to their advantage.

Nice depth and composition here to - eyes go right up her legs. great stuff.

Tremendous. this accomplishes astonishing things- its art first and gains its art not through erotic means but cannot exist without the erotic quality of the female form. The body rises from the earth. The angel in the marble is found-If this doesn't win a ribbon, its an injustice.

Very nice composition. I love the crop of this image. Too bad it's a statue though... I would have loved to see the same image done with a real person. You'll score very well though on this one!

Good idea, nice toning, the position of the hand in the top left corner is a bit distracting, I don't think it harmonizes with the big broad shapes in the rest of the picture. Background and supject fit perfectly.
