I think this was a really good entry, very well done and quite emotive.

Thanks for taking the time to comment on my submission peeps (all bar 1 of you anyway). I'm happy to receive constructive critsism, and thats how I learn. Childish ridicule, even if it was meant to be funny gets me angry. This was a first, and most likely the last nude for me, I very nearly pulled it at the last minute but feel I've learnt something this past week so it was almost worth it?

Its currently N04 on my top pics so guess I need to go out and take a better picture sharpish if I don't want to see it everyday!

A highly interesting and strong image with great punch. The low key values describe something akin to the soul search which we must all come to terms with. The b/w adds magic because the image seems to appear from the dark abyss much like out thoughts do. A good study very well posed. Bumping up.

You've heard of THE THINKER. This, folks, is THE STINKER!!!

Composition: 6
Technical: 6, The wood floor distracts me a little. I think a cloth/blanket would help keep the subject more seperate from the background
Appeal: 6
Challenge: 8, I think a nude subject brings an extra personal touch to a portrait
Overall Calculated Average Score: 7

I love this one. I feel like I know this man when I look at it. Still I think it's to dark on the top, the hair and the background are the same colour and I don't think that looks good. But the picture over all is really good I think!

Nice brave portrait. I would have liked the tones to be more even on the right arm and the thing in the floor is a bit distracting. Other than that everything is great.

Well - may I suggest you try thinking with your clothes on? It's a bit warmer.
Nice tones. Composition bothers me a bit with too much dead space top right. Your back is cropped too tight. I'd have burned back the glare from your front arm.

This is a very tasteful nude, I think that black and white works really well here (10)

great concept, however I find it a little too harsh on the lightning, also a little under exposed for my taste. but it's 100% honest and that counts a lot. well done 8

Nice B&W. Good range of tones and an interesting composition. (watch out for splinters)
