John, This is a classic. The pose reminds me of those used in drawing classes in art school. Jim Phelps
There is no better way to end the year, congratulations, just great, Merry Xmas and Happy 2009 //Salvador
Lovey indeed is she as is the pose, the light and the glow of her skin... Well done indeed... John, you have a way with words that would benifit mankind if it could be bottled and dispenced when needed... Your 'art speak' is in a rhelm of it's own and I mean this respectfully and in a good way... I truly wish that I had such facility when speaking about works. May you have a wonderful holiday season! Cheers, -R-
Thank you friends, Buon Natale ed Anno Nuovo
Perfect body Great lighting and exposure, I don´t know where you get so many gorgeous models. Congratulations for you and your model.
Thank you Lennart for your generous remarks and the others dear friends too. Much credit of course goes to the model. The natural grace is hers and my role is just to try and capture it. However, I think it is more for others to answer your question than myself. It is also very subjective. I certainly set out to record what I relate to, but very often I find the girls to be so much more beautiful than they appear in my photos! So whereas others that see an image may be satisfied more or less, I am not always so. The beauty I refer to however is often to be found more in the personality than in the physique, and it is hard to put that on the camera. Having said that, I do not think one would often recognize these models in real life after looking at the photos. Photography is a means to play act a role which is sometimes more representative of the moment lived than reality. Like Andy Warhol said that everyone can be famous for 5 mins, everyone can be beautiful too.

A beautiful image, John. Pose and illumniation are very fine. Congrats.
Dear John Once again you got the perfect balance of eroticism, grace and respect for the model. You seem to achieve this regardless of the models, who are always beautiful. Hence my question: have you ever failed, in the sense that the model was pretty a first glance, but not photogenic or didn't "click"? Happy Christmas, and thanks for all the presents you have given us at photo.net! Regards Lennart
