I've begun to check out your gallery since looking at the piece I commented on earlier, and you've got some really great stuff going on here! I could be biased because this is my favorite artistic-nude pose and it's always nice when a model assumes it, but this is very nice. The black-and-white adds a sensual, warm feel to the photo and I think the model's face turned away adds a little secrecy... she's a beautiful woman and I think you've portrayed her very well.
As so many have attested to, you have a wonderful collection of work here. Not only are the models very beautiful, they are also very talented. Taking pictures of people is an art form, and excelling in the world of artistic nude is at another level. Photography the female form and creating something like this photograph is an amazing talent and your have shown this in your work. If you have a beautiful model, it is easy to create a great shot with just some work. But to go beyond that and bring out the best in them, yourself, and create a work of art is truly a talent. Well done ... after reviewing your collection, I have learned much about positions, light, and how to capture a person in a photograph.
i agree with MrSchultz down there, the lighting is fantastic here. you produce very fine nudes, of great quality, with perfect models, perfect poses, etc. but at some point, it becomes a standard and any picture is as perfect as any other. well i think you go one step higher with this one, because the lighting AND the exposure are tuned to perfection. the hair on one side and the foot on the other are really fabulous!
Yes I do lioke it. I particularly like the lighting effect, like the reflexion from underneath on her feet giving them a glow that is really nice. The shapes are very well defined and treated with grace thanks to a creaftfull lighting and a striking pose perfectly executed from the model. Bravo !
