Very nice, John. I do very much like this. (As you know, I have a partiality to reclining nudes captured from behind .... LOL.)
Aesthetics 8, Originality 8 nice in B&W
Very beautiful use of B & W. Did you also try one with the head tilted back so as to see some of the facial profile?
This could be my favorite of yours so far, John. Very tasteful and moody, somehow.
Lovely pose... I didn't notice the wine glass until I viewed the colored version (I prefer this B&W). This is a timeless classic shot.
Thanks Kudzu, Tony and the others too.

I've been critical when I thought I had to be, John, and you called it closed-mindedness, but you see, here, I'll just say this: hats off !
Great work as always !

idenya bagus, pilihan menggunakan film b&w juga tepat, sebab kalo nyetak di lab bisa digandain ama orang lab, he. he
Wonderful!! Very beautiful.
This is fascinating, but I haven't yet found the dictionary that will translate it!
Fantastic Well done !! Excellent work.Lets see more of this kind of creativity please. Afzal Ansary
I too like the B&W original better. Very good.
I just felt that the composition needed a focal point, but thanks for the critic.
Absolutely gorgeous!!!!...........but why the wine glass? I do not intend to be overly critical, but the composition, texture, lighting, everything about the human form is immaculate and, to me, the wine glass throws off what would have been a perfect balance.
I agree about the wine glass, I don't think its needed, but it is subtle enough to not detract in any way. I like the fact that the image has equal weight between the form, composition, and subject matter. I see too many nudes&figures rated on this site that are purely overt sexual poses dominating all aspects of the picture. This image truly is wine over soda.
A masterpiece for my taste...
Sweet I always learn so much from this type of Photo.Very very good.Love it in B&W
Wonderful, Very beautiful !!! Oktay Cagatay

Came back to check up on how you're doing John, very well I see!! I wanted to comment on this photo before... This image is beautiful, reminds of that painting of the nude from behind, that Valasquez painted, the Rokeby Venus. Excellent!!
this is a beautifull photograph, i like the way the model is'nt seated to look "perfect". it looks so very real. exellent work.
