I think the version you have posted as well as the suggestion for a tighter crop have their valid points. It would probably depend on my mood as to which one I preferred at the moment. The model is absolutely sumptuous. My personal tastes lean towards, dark, raven haired, mysterious women. The pose is provocative yet sultry. The blue, green filter simply adds to the mystique. Her pose, the way she is playing with her hair and a downward gaze makes the scene very dreamy and passionate. I would definitely put this into the category of fine art. Of course almost all of your work is in this category, just some more so than others ;-) Great photograph.

John- I'm not sure of your intent here...but this looks very much like the viewer is looking through a window at an erotic mannequin. Pretty cool. -Anthony
John, Excellent once again. Great light with a touch of elegant tonal effect. Lovely execution. Just wish to clone out the photo frame from there. Rgds.
Surreal colouration that adds the the overall feel.
I agree absolutely with Aurelien. Bravo John.
very cool great shot
The composition and provocative posing create a beautiful scene . The tone is perfect
Original, exellent! 7/7. Alberto
Perfect composition! Tones is super!
Indeed good! Indeed this is good but I do find the black band to the left a distraction.
yowza hot stuff man!
I find it gets a little "lonely" without either the frame or the beginning of the other room to the left .. but that is taste of course ... many thanks.
Wonderful, she looks like a piece of modern sculpture.

Imagen rotunda, muy impactante, preciosa. Just wonderful!
Thank you Frank and to the others also. I am pleased that I was able to convey the importance of the mood which goes beyond the presence of a naked young woman. I am particularly grateful to the model who contributed so strongly by her understanding of the purpose. She is a great artist in her own right.
Excellent shot! Congrats.
Impactante felicitaciones !
I thought the same about the mannequin... Reminded me of a sex museum I went to in Amsterdam ;)

Quite different as usual, John, but very well realised. You nudes are always evocating, but never provocating (in my opinion, due to the presence of Hairs, hiding sex). In one word, I love your work :)
it seems that u r under an essential spell of eccentric creativity that is hallmark of any great artist. superb images, one after the other. regards!
A wonderful, extraordinary master piece!
Composition/balance... In my opinion a great composition. The key is gentleness of touch of girl and glass/frame on the wall. The effect is a strange balanced image where, sexual heavy pose, is soothed by cold objects, transforming erotic in sensual. Great composition. Congratulations.
hmmm ... I find - the Black Band is a MUST ! regards Harald
Thank you Romeo. This one needed a little thought actually.
it is perfect .. the way it is. cropped gets to be to 'sharp'. there are to many straight lines and corners and the left side softens them, helping the model within the composition. like John said: it keeps her company. i really like this one. the way her legs are, blows me away. there is such a great transition from the floor to her face. when the right one seems that had been 'taking over' by the floor the other one still maintains the balance between the soft and hard, with a defense approach to the idea of invasion. i am torn between giving you a seven or less. because of my 'statue of limitations' i start to think if i do offend others artists like you with my little knowledge of 'how" was done by giving you a seven. i already think i have rated some more than they would supposed to be(not yours).my bad. ....this one, its great thinking, posing and shooting.
