I don't know, I like to see her legs and tippy-toes. I'm flat-out amazed at her posse and balance. She threw straight into this pose and looked like she could hold it for hours.

No doubt it had to ribbon. Beautiful high key and perfect use of the square crop.

Voted earlier coming back to comment.

The high key look to this is great. The soft hues of white envokes the idea of innocence and purity. It is high key but still captures wonderful details in the face and hair. The folded pose of the model makes me think of curling up for comfort and or shelter - I sometimes get the imagery of yin and yang just from the pose and position of her arms and body don't entirely know why. That pose must have been very tough though - holding that pose while balancing on the balls of the feet:-)

Love the different white tones. Lovely.

Not sure if I find the pose interesting or awkward, but in any event the shot grabs my attention.

Not your normal nude. I love it that you left the "parts" out and still showed us all we needed to feel her emotion. Very artistic.

Fantastic use of high key. But what is ever more spectacular is the smooth skin against a rough brick wall. Nice.

Love the highkey, the details and the not so often seen pose which makes this photograph different than usual.
