Timo, I know that there is not much of it in Finland, but that's just the sun shining through the leaves ....!
Aesthetics 6, Originality 6 I don't like those bright areas over the breast, otherwise beautiful image.
No, your nudes are well done and present your models in a neat way. If they find it nice and you find it enjoyable, there should be no problem - well, except that when you do not work with paid models from the street, revealing their identity (faces) might be sometimes problematic, but I hope you'll never have any problems with that. Recently, I discovered that studio work can be fun, so I perfectly understand you. As a matter of fact, you might want to check out my portrait / nude photos I added yesterday and today :-)
Hey John, I think I like your less altered shoots more (I generally prefer nudes / glamour with shadows and some portion of it untold, while your digital compositions are usually pretty revealing; they have their beauty, but I wouldn't hang a calendar with them on my wall, while this one is a good candidate =). This is not to offend you! I wouldn't hang Warhol on my wall either! I just don't really like provocative bright colors and contrasts of this kind.
Aesthetics 7, Originality 7 Great picture!
amazing. i love the color and the mood. as well as the pose and composition. great job
Light through the leaves This is my favorite photo in your portfolio. I like the simplicity of it. The blue with the light on the subject looks like she is getting dressed after taking a early morning swim as the first rays of sun filter through the leaves. Or maybe I just like it because she is nude. Either way, great photo.
Purple Passion Just as I have been moved by your black and white work, some of the best I have seen, your color work is alive, fresh, sensual, and on and on... what can I say? Your folders are a feast visually. I am only frustrated as much as wish to create these images, I somehow make excuses why I can't: Photojournalism daily burns me out, living in conservative rural America and a loner, wife, kids.... All excuses. Thanks for your work.
Your Photos John I have just been through all the pictures...nothing offended but lots delighted. The Fifties styled children around the pole brought back some memories. This blue nude in cool tones is as warm as a log fire...wonderful Bryan
what brings me back to view your images over and over again is ...oh yeah...those beautiful bodies...and your creative and artistic imput that goes way beyond just the photograph...
77 Sorry, I can't give you more than 7, they just won't let me! This is a perfect shot in every way. The model, the pose, the cropping, and of course the blue light. This would have worked in regular colours as well, of course, but the blue, here, gives it that added extra. Wonderful.
