I don’t think I’ve commented on any of your photos before, NHL. As good as the photography is in this set, these shots seem more like “porn” than “art” to me.


I’ve really liked some of your previous series. For instance, you did a “Water Nymph” shoot fairly recently that I thought was just outstanding, and more than worthy of hanging on a wall in place of a painting. (I’m not sure that my wife would agree with me!) I also remember some absolutely stunning shots of a beautiful woman in a cave.


Just my opinion, of course – and winter is “probably” not a good time to photograph nudes, outdoors!

I respect your opinion and tend to agree, especially on the 2nd shot, and was debating wether to post or not...

I'll definitely remove it if other people object as well.

-> My preference is to shoot birds.

Thanks for your reply, NHL.

I didn’t mean to imply that I object to these photos or think that you should remove them; I don’t think that at all. I put in my two-cents because these shots seem to be in such a different “class/direction” than some of your other (female model) work that I’ve enjoyed.

BTW, I just noticed that the Greek letter φ is missing from the Greek spelling of “graphos” in your signature.

I understand, I'll also try my best to post less controversial images next time
And thanks for the great catch on the signature.

i disagree i dont find them more towards porn at all . i find the second picture excellent and good eye contact too and the pose is great this would be my pick of the 3 shots followed by the first and finally the 3rd.

I would actually consider some porn very artistic. I don't want to spin this thread down that path so I won't, but I wouldn't consider any of these shots to be anywhere near porn. This is an artistic composition of the beautiful female shape. Studio lighting with a provocative body position that's left to the person viewing to interpret the photo as they see (art). To me it's a thing of beauty that was skillfuly photographed. Although the pose and facial expression combined do send a sexual vibe. Doesn't it seem the (warning nudity) title makes it hard not to look at. I wonder why?

Birds? Uhm, sorry but I don't believe you.
