Default Crimson (nudity warning)

Change of style (i.e. no more awkward hand):

The last time I lookes at a photo like this my wife tried to beat me with a stick...
The skin tones came out very nice, although the shadows under her breast and on the underside of her stomache are kind of odd, is that due to PP or something? They just look kind of really negative black for some reason. Very pretty model great pose, glad I stopped in for a look. Frank

Yes - I'm glad you noticed

-> I applied OnOne's "Charge_More_Money_Glow" plug-in to the image which has the effect of muting the color down turning it almost to a B/W image. I then bring the color back by decreasing the plug-in opacity to induce this dramatic effect... of separating the subject from her background

Thanks

My first introduction to the naked breast was in National Geographic. The women didnt wear fancy boots like that though. Nice shot.

I found the background overexposed and distracting.

I know. I'd masked it out too but would keep the 'overexposed' highlight below her body though as this is the best feature of this overhead grid and from behind lighting

... and this is how the image would look when the color is un-muted:

Personally, I prefer the muted color version. I know what you mean about the overexposed underlighting but what about lightening up the dark area of her body so its lighter than black. Then it will stand out against the black background.
