Love it! HOW DID YOU ACHIEVE THIS?
Lovely It is very modern! I like it a lot..
Great Effect & Great Pose Truly modern art!
Luca, many thanks for your comment. If you notice however, the body is "truncated" also. The whole point was to make the picture resemble a detached part of a bronze statue.
this is modern art in photographic!
This appears very modern from the technology alone. I'd have to rate its appeal as very classic. That could be an ancient goddess we're looking at. With or without the effects (which I like) this would be a great photo.
I agree with all the others that this is a truly beautiful modern photo, but i dont like that her right arm is so truncated.

B&W B&W anyone? Excellent work John, the texture is fascinating.
Inspired Departure Really like the end result of this kind of image. Transforming of what was a very solid original image I'm sure. This transforms the image beyond mere nudity for nudity's sake and really starts to suggest more possibilities within our own definition of beauty. Thought provoking image in any regard.
Glad you liked it Steve. The full bodied version is here ... http://www.photo.net/photodb/photo?photo_id=777572
Wow! great work. Looks like an advanced metals technique (mokume) used in jewelry production. Can't really tell what crops her at the hip: clothes or photoshop, but I think I would prefer to have seen the additional curve flow off the edge of the frame.
Wonderful! 3D-ish! Amazing texture! :)
How generous and kind my friend, thank you very much. I cannot hide my pleasure at reading such words, however unfounded they may be .. :-)
The truth is that I am often very much of an experimental photographer, sometimes things work out, other times they are too embarrassing to show .. :-) .. I think the important thing is to have fun. If sometimes others can enjoy the process too, so much the better.
Best wishes, John
You are certainly one of the top nude photographers in this site so a certain level is always expected and assured. Yet, there are times when you choose to exceed that expectation through such interesting ideas that one can't help wondering and salivating over what is coming out next from your darkroom. Well done again John.
