Great work. Maybe it is my credo "less is more" that is at play, but why so much additional stuff when the lovely nude model is the focus of attention? I really admire the way you photographed the model -- I am drawn to the parallel curves of her tummy and derriere and simply wonderful curve under her heavy left breast. I just find the other stuff distracting -- the statue to the left seems irrelevant, yet its tack-sharp focus diverts my attention, and the expansive background is properly out of focus (DoF), so why afford it so much image real estate?
I think that you may well be right. It could just be a case of over exuberance on my part (though that chair would have to go too).
