It's not often I comment on one of the top photogs(little point in saying great, excellent etc. for every shot) on here .... BUT (you knew it was coming) why crop her feet off. It is the only critisism I have. It's a great idea, nudes or partial nude against every day backgrounds. Where is it, the wild west and is that a mule he's riding? The 'cowboy's' hat says Southern Spain. Oh alright, excellent concept and great image.
Another great creation...
The great master of the Nude!...Ciaomau!
Very creative idea for a photo of this type. The expression on the model's face I find very compelling. Love the shadow too. Another marvelous effort!
Good photo indeed! Yet i tend to think bare feet on this rough road would add impact on the whole
Thanks for the info John and in that case you are forgiven! lol
John, Outstanding. All the best. Rgds.
I think the comp/crop works well. Adds a cinematic feel of motion, helps my eye off the central figure. Apropos to the story.
Of course you are right about the feet in this case, though I often favour closeups .. it's simply that I couldn't move back far enough in the time available ... it was just one of those moments which last a very short time ... a few seconds later, he was situated further up the hill in view of the model ...
Hi John. I really love your work. For this image I agree with Glenn about the feet. Congrats.
Very nice image John - as always! Best, Michael
I love this work! R
John I will forever be in awe of your quantity of images and shooting opportunities. Equally i will forever wonder why at the cost of a few seconds and adjustments you continue to present flat but otherwise good work. It seems as if you have all the ingredients yet you hold back on small finishing touches and we see your images as less than they could be. I know we have briefly talked about it before and i totally respect the fact that you do as you please with your work, i just wonder why with very little effort, you dont add the contrast that can make such a big difference.
John. This is fantastic, excellent composition, tones and lovely model. Regards. Alberto
Hmm .. i'm lazy .. no doubt about it, but probably incompetent too in many areas .. :-) .. but in this particular case, I am away from home and am posting from a laptop .. I have absolutely no idea what the contrast really look like ... I have mentioned this under a couple of pictures already, will correct when I get back ... thanks ... :-) PS. it's probably time that I also learned something about photoshop. I am still on number 5. Should get around to changing my screen too. I still have one of those deep box affairs they used around world war 1 !
As to the cropping of her feet (the 2nd poster) Who gives a shit. Crop her feet and get me closer to her face and breasts.
The walk .. ..
