My God, somebody get a blanket and throw it over that girl before I boil over. Seriously her right leg needs to be bent or her knee brought forward a little because the leg throws a "un-natural strain" into an other wise beautiful nude. Shame she wasn't able find a room for the night. just kidding--I paint nudes. Dick
Sooooo Cat like , Wonderful
Interesting comment... ... so if she reads the positive comments and ignores how bad the picture is, she will be happy. Thanks for the lesson! I must try this approach.
addendum Please don't get me wrong John. She is fantastic!
Thanks Glenwood. The tension is of course what it is all about and she conveys the "challenge and seduction" with confidence and panache. It would undoubtedly be better without the towel, you are right of course, but sun oil and water plus all the nonsense on the terrace floor unfortunately make for an unpleasant mixture, not to mention the stains remaining after!
Once again wonderful woman, pose, composition. You are master in this.
love this... great work on this John, I would love to see a similar setup for NM :) and I love the oil ....
Thank you Jim, she will read this.
There is a tremendous inner energy in this composition John. Bravo to both of you.
Loss of detail This looks like a serious crop. If it isn't then the camera moved. There really is no detail in this. That is a pity.
Very good work John.Best regards.Janusz.
John, This image creates an incredible amount of both emotional and visual tension! The stiff left leg and the tight muscles on the right leg really enhances the tension. She looks both defiant and totally in control! MAJOR compliments to her for the pose. Jim Phelps
I would have liked it better without the shine.
Stunning... John, A stunning image of a very striking woman: The controlled tension is almost palatable. It is remarkable how she both challanges, and seduces! But then, isn't that what can make a woman very intriguing. I hope that we will be seeing more images of her, to see what else you can coax out of her. My one gripe, and it is a minor one, is the black towell: I would have liked none, and have her wet skin (uncomfortably I would admit) playing against the stone floor; or something larger that would fill the frame better, and not make it seen like she was perched, teetering, on it. But that's a minor bitch. All in all, an interesting approach to capturing the complexity of a beautiful woman. And a 6/6 from me. Yours, Glenwood
Loss of detail ?! A strange comment, but not an unusual one I guess given who the author is, about how sharp this photo is (sic). In fact, it is unusually so haha, and detailed too, as may be seen from the crop of the same image, less than half the size of the one posted here ! ... :-) http://photo.net/photodb/photo?photo_id=6646038
Study in black and white ..
