Funny shot, but not really a nude.

Hmm... not sure what you are going for here, but it doesn't work for me. Focus is odd with the shallow dof and the focus placement at the calves. Also the composition is very strange -- eye starts at the out of focus feet and then is pulled up the legs and away from what I perceive to be your intended point of interest. The toning isn't warming, so much as jaundiced.

Composition and pose don't work for me. Also the blown out highlight on the guitar is very distracting, and the selective coloring (de-coloring?) doesn't improve the shot either.

This is a very interesting and striking image. Not sure how "photographic" it remains (whatever that means), but still quite a dynamic creation.

How very Warhol-esque. Interesting take on the challenge.

The shallow dof doesn't work here for me. If the legs had been in focus too I think you would have had a very sculptural effect.

While I think the geometry, color and light effect of the pool is interesting, the background is distracting and the nude gets lost in the composition. A tigher shot, or perhaps a steeper angle (if possible) would have worked better. Also, if the figure was floating, swimming, or perhaps completely under the water in some other pose this might have been better.

Every time I look at this I adjust my initial rating up. A very powerful image.

The Way of All Flesh

Comment:
I'm really trying not to react to this on a purely aesthetic level, because I understand that a "pretty" picture was not your intention. But I still think this falls short on a couple of points: First, I think this would have been a more interesting and more powerful without the heavy-handed post processing. Second, while I think you intentionally wanted a stark and straightforward composition, the composition on this could still be improved. I would have either liked to have seen something tighter, or a more full-body shot (or perhaps even just without the arms on the side so that there was negative space all the way up both sides). All that said, I've bumped up my rating. If nothing else, you deserve something for entering a shot that has such a likely chance of getting panned.

Nice. Left wondering what a slightly longer exposure would have looked liked, giving the water (and the shot) a softer look and effect.
