nah : ) .. any pics that make into the top 10 are usually pretty darn interesting. my best scored pics have both reached 13 and both generated some after the fact commentary. and i'm glad you put the chips in, I think that they definitely added that $ feel that really makes the 'poker difference (tm)'!
05/27/2002 07:08:00 PM
Well, I've seen lots of after-the-fact comments on other people's photos, but I never figured that my photo would be that interesting that others would come back and check to see if there were new comments :-)

What I really wasn't sure about was whether or not you actually used chips in strip poker, since I had thought you were supposed to bet clothes. But in the end I put them in cause they definitely seemed to my untrained eye to make it more poker-ish.
05/27/2002 05:45:00 PM
oh yeah, i was also going to say that obviously this wasn't a literal interpretation of strip poker. usually when people play, they don't play with such abandon that the cards, and chips are scattered all over in an entropic cloud ; ) . . Your picture actually might suggest a fantasy aftermath to the game itself, especially with the man's shirt on the woman's body.
05/27/2002 05:40:00 PM
yeah. can you believe it? a lot of photos have these little fan club gatherings : ) . especially the top and bottom scoring ones. check it out.
05/27/2002 03:35:00 PM
That's my stomach, actually, if you hadn't figured that out already. It's actually my shirt also, but I chose it to look more masculine. Because it was me, I think I would have been a little uncomfortable with having my unmentionables draped over my body for all to see, and also I didn't want it to be so overtly sexual. The ace is in the place it is because it wouldn't stay any other way. Lighting is from a tissue-paper diffused lamp. Not knowing the rules of poker very well, and never having actually played strip poker, I suppose that might not be how you actually play it. But not having any other games around except a pack of playing cards I'd never opened, this was really my only idea. Do people actually read these things?
05/27/2002 11:31:00 AM
cute. you really shouldn't be playing this game alone, though.

Can't beat that hand!
05/26/2002 12:08:00 AM
Leaves me wanting to see the rest of the flush, but not the rest of the model.
05/25/2002 09:47:00 PM
That person must be very bad at poker ; ) nice shot
05/25/2002 05:51:00 PM
Uh, was that a flush or a blush? I like the tonal range -- smooth considering required compression.
05/25/2002 04:45:00 PM
Beutiful picture, well framed. I love the curvature of the body and how the cards were placed. It is sexy with out showing anything but the body. I really like it.
05/25/2002 10:14:00 AM
Cheater , cheater!! :-)

Nice subject. I like the skin tone here. I would love to see this exact same shot in color with saturation down but a red ace of hearts on her belly. That image just popped into my head when I first saw this shot. It is usually a good thing when a photo makes me think of other options...it means the idea is a good one to start with :-)
05/25/2002 08:26:00 AM
I think it would be more striking with another garment instead of the shirt on the right hand side. Nive lighting, but that shirt just reminds me of my laundry. :-)
Overall though, very nice. I like the soft touch that your pic has.
Just next time, use a bra or nickers or something.... :-)
05/25/2002 07:54:00 AM
Stylish, Nice one
05/24/2002 08:13:00 PM
I think you should have included the appropriate cards to make it a straight flush.
05/24/2002 02:41:00 PM
Not sure that's quite how I remember strip poker being played, but nice shot, anyway! Nice use of b&w.
05/24/2002 06:46:00 AM
You have commercial appeal. Keep up the good ideas
05/23/2002 09:16:00 PM
creative and nice shot
05/23/2002 09:10:00 PM
the bottom left corner seems to be a little washed out. otherwise, great contrast overall.
05/23/2002 06:54:00 PM
HaHaHa. Good use of black and white.
05/23/2002 06:53:00 PM
Great pic. Nice play on the games theme, and good use of B&W
05/23/2002 04:27:00 PM
A little more the man shirt across the model would be more evocative.
05/23/2002 12:10:00 PM
Sexy, but aren't the "chips" really clothes in this case?
05/22/2002 05:08:00 PM
Wow! I was always chicken to get this far. lol Nice, very nice. Not dirty.
05/22/2002 06:24:00 AM
Nice idea! Who won? Whats that striped object on the right? Its distracting
05/22/2002 06:21:00 AM
Good choice for B&W. Would probably have liked a pair of undies or a bra draped across the body
05/22/2002 06:06:00 AM
Sharper black and white may have identified your lines better.
05/21/2002 07:22:00 PM
Good photo - but it doesn't quite comply with my preconceived mental image of strip poker.
05/21/2002 04:44:00 PM
i like this, but the shirt sleeve bugs me, IMHO should be something of hers - like lace I think, I like the lighting on this - great photo.
05/21/2002 02:54:00 PM
Ah -- going for the sex vote, huh? Just kidding -- nice shot. The camera angle looks a little funny. Did you shoot this one direction and then rotate it 180? All of the cards, chips, and shirt seem appropriately scattered except that AC placed almost perfectly in the center of the body. For some reason it bothers me -- I think it's the placement that does so. Nevertheless nicely toned and lit B&W. Good work.
05/21/2002 10:22:00 AM
It's a no-lose situation. Nice tones, and a wonderful navel. The angle (ref. the 5 of clubs) is a little dizzying. Shirt is a nice touch.
05/21/2002 10:10:00 AM
No fair you never invited me to play
05/21/2002 12:18:00 AM
I thought about a DQ strickly because the belly button is to perfect to be real. But I thought what the hell. Nice shot.
05/20/2002 04:49:00 PM
05/20/2002 04:45:00 PM
This is a very nicely executed photo... Is that a shirt sleeve or some other article of clothing in the lower right corner? Good job! This is the first time I have scored a 'nude' or 'semi-nude' shot with a 10 on dpchallenge... good job!
05/20/2002 04:12:00 PM
05/20/2002 03:31:00 PM
The tilt of camera makes this a very unusual shot.
05/20/2002 02:59:00 PM
Good idea. I like it. Maybe would of changed the angle/view, but it's good work.
05/20/2002 02:18:00 PM
Good highlight technique.
05/20/2002 01:53:00 PM
Nice lighting. I think that cloth thingy in the LR corner is a bit distracting. Good B&W photo.
05/20/2002 01:13:00 PM
Beautiful shot, but I think a little more contrast would improve upon it.
05/20/2002 12:55:00 PM
the best of the card games, well done.
05/20/2002 11:53:00 AM
Nice photo. Top 5.
05/20/2002 10:58:00 AM
Count me in~
I like to play this~
05/20/2002 09:59:00 AM
Going for the nudie vote again, eh?
05/20/2002 07:32:00 AM
dont you people ever get tired of the same old shit
05/20/2002 07:03:00 AM
The sleeve on the right ads a the hinted strip part, and the chips/cards, obvious. Very well composed.
05/20/2002 06:44:00 AM
beautiful. great idea and well shot.
05/20/2002 03:32:00 AM
This photo is gorgeous. The female torso is one of my favourite things, especially seeing as I do bellydancing as a hobby :). This is subtly erotic and beautifully photographed, if maybe a bit too deliberately posed. 10 from me.
