Im not fussy about the material. Id prefer something like a polar bear skin. But the pose is nice. Almost classical. I also would have shot all of her with perhaps some cropping later. Id also like to see some more skin texture. From just below the small of her back to half way down her buttocks its very flat looking. There is also something strange going on where her left leg goes under her right one. Too many intersecting lines going on there. I think it should be much simpler. What is your thoughts on her looking up like that? I think she is a captive, startled by someone other than the observer there. If she were looking straight forward then that wouldnt be my thoughts on it. Overall though, not bad. Nude beautiful women are always a feast for the eyes. Thanks Nate.

I like this one! Nice pose, shadows on her body, background, etc.

I agree, the original shots are full-length; However this image is already a 3:2 crop, and displaying the full picture looks squash out like a panorama and will distract from the many feature lines that were observed...

The details are there... This a 25Mp captured from a CZ 24-70 so every pores and hair strands are present, just not on this resized image, but are very evident in print

-> The stare up is for the catchlights in her glowing blue eyes, others shots with the forward look missed this detail.



Thank you for commenting everyone

i like the catchlight in the eye and the expression. it makes for a very striking pose. i am sure the full-length is nice in full resolution.

my only real nitpick is the left hand, i would like to see it above the fabric so we can see the hand.

what about a b&w version? of coarse the full file would look a hell of a lot better.... nhl is this your own studio or hired ?

There's always room for improvement but overall it is a very nice. Excellent color, lighting and detail. The only thing I could critique is she looks a bit too twisted, physically.

I liked it - My attempt to incorporate everyone ideas:

1. B/W but less contrasty as it makes her aged a bit IMO
2. Looking straight forward
3. Less twisted
4. 4:3 crop to rid of the many intersecting lines

i find this last one very flattering. being less twisted makes it appear more natural, and i like your use of less contrasty tones. this is a flattering and pleasing image.

Yes I agree with Dustin. This is a nicer shot. The bum area has less converging lines and is much 'neater' looking. The use of a small penlight to put a highlight in the eye might have been a nice touch. Id like to see this one in color.
