The title, pose and lighting all work together to make this a lovely photo. Love the way her hair is aglow.
08/28/2005 11:34:12 PM

Nice composition and pose. Lighting may be a tad hot.

great pose and lighting
08/27/2005 08:47:55 PM
Nice Shadows
08/27/2005 07:32:04 PM
Well lit. Well composed. Well done.
08/27/2005 05:33:58 AM
Beautiful pose and lighting. I like the neutral colors.
08/27/2005 12:18:21 AM
Very sharp and real. I like it.
08/26/2005 09:47:27 PM
very nice model, good use of the light from the window.
08/26/2005 07:37:45 PM
I think the lighting is very good. It accentuates the body very nicely.
08/26/2005 06:48:49 PM
A very fine image. I admire how you were able to achieve such an elegant yet casual pose; it hints at classical statuary, but the door provides a nice contrasting feeling of informality. Awesome lighting; I think it's all natural light, but if so there's some cleverly reflected light creating a subtle fill effect that's exactly right. The model's shadow on the door also works especially well. It's my top choice ... 10
08/26/2005 03:53:26 PM
beautiful light
08/26/2005 02:51:14 PM
I like the play of light and shadows in this shot as well as the color tone. Only minor distraction is the spot on the door that I would have cloned out.

08/26/2005 10:08:47 AM
Provocative pose. Lighting well done. Composition/crop good, as are tones. 7 - good luck in the challenge!
08/25/2005 02:17:25 PM
nice pose, great lighting, beautiful model--
but the vertical lines are quite distracting.

Good shot. Lighting looks good. Good job.
08/24/2005 11:25:16 PM
Nice... bumping to a 7.
08/24/2005 10:12:53 PM
A very sensual photo that really highlights the model's beauty. Good Luck!
08/24/2005 04:32:00 PM
gr8 shot, but I would have smoothed out the skin in her waist area...you can see the elastic lines from her clothes...7
08/24/2005 12:59:35 PM
Nicely posed to really flatter the model. I think a hair light would have made this a little better but not enough to improve my score since I gave it a 10 and added to my favorites.
08/24/2005 07:45:06 AM
Excellent shot. Great use of lighting.
08/24/2005 04:59:15 AM
love the light!..8
08/24/2005 02:50:28 AM
Lighting, title and detail are right on. Composition is interesting also. Very well done and tasteful. I gave you 10.
08/23/2005 11:52:56 PM
I really like this. Very good pose! The lighting is crazy good, backlighting can be very sensual. The only thing I don't really like is the line in the wall behind her. Otherwise it's great! 8.
08/23/2005 10:21:01 PM
You know, I could have sworn I voted and commented on this all ready.

Great lighting, great pose, great model.
08/23/2005 08:28:17 PM
I like your use of lighting and the pose of the model, her expression is great. I like the corner in the bg, the separation of light/dark in the bg works in how it offsets the model in different ways. At first I didn't know if I like the door, I'm now leaning towards liking the angles and how they contrast with the curves of the model. Very well done!
08/23/2005 02:34:09 PM
Back for a second look, and to comment - love the strong light from what seems to be a window, and the way it lights her body. Her pose looks a bit forced, but not entirely un-natural. Love the simplicity of the white walls and door. 9
08/23/2005 01:30:18 PM
I like the composition and lighting of this. pose is also well done.
08/23/2005 12:35:15 PM
Very good lighting!
08/23/2005 11:12:55 AM
nice mode positionl and lightning here... 7
08/23/2005 09:58:25 AM
love the warmth and sensuallity
08/23/2005 06:31:56 AM
Great light.
08/23/2005 12:12:37 AM
Very lovely lighting, I think the reason that this got rated down at all was that the angle of her back is a bit steep, a slightly less degree of arch would have improved the shot a bit. However still rated it a 7. Good luck.
08/23/2005 12:06:58 AM
Nicely done, love the lighting and posing. 9
08/22/2005 11:47:23 PM
Great lighting, Great pose. If this is a self portrait I admire you guts to submit. If it is not, I think it is a great photo anyways. Good luck in the challenge.
08/22/2005 10:27:22 PM
Very nice lighting, good curve in the back. Great job.
08/22/2005 10:13:54 PM
love her pensive, slightly erotic expression....like a well-loved woman. nice work!
08/22/2005 08:17:09 PM
Nice image and complimentary pose. Could have used a little lighing right in fromnt of where the photog stood to smooth her skin a little.
08/22/2005 07:01:48 PM
Does not like to see the door that much, but the pose and body is nice and original a8
08/22/2005 05:05:21 PM
The almost harsh backlight does just work. It is worse on her breasts but quite nice in her hair. 9.
08/22/2005 04:38:24 PM
Nice lighting, good pose. Love the expression on her face. Beautiful tonal range throughout the pic.
08/22/2005 03:24:31 PM
Excellent shot. Very nice lighting and pose
08/22/2005 03:07:22 PM
very sensual... I really like this one
08/22/2005 02:53:20 PM
Good colors
08/22/2005 12:26:37 PM
lovely image- the lighting is a little too hot I think.... just on the left side of course. other than that you nailed it.
08/22/2005 10:22:26 AM
Wonderful, but the lighting doesn't look right. Maybe a little harse on the highlights.
08/22/2005 09:56:49 AM
This is a very sensual and beautiful photo. Lighting is superb and I like the pose you've chosen as well. Beautiful model.

08/22/2005 06:36:21 AM
excellent use of shadows, rich colors.
08/22/2005 05:25:34 AM
This is a very nice image. Nice pose, great lighting. Beautiful model. Well photographed, with only one minor flaw, which many photogrpahers make. Clothing Lines. It is always best to ask your model to wear very loose fitting clothes just prior to the shoot and maybe just a house coat for a half hour or so before the shoot to allow those lines made by elastic to relax and disappear. That, is the only flaw I find in this stunning image. <9>
08/22/2005 02:08:02 AM
Outstanding use of the light. Nice curves and tones.
08/22/2005 12:35:32 AM
I love the backlighting on this shot, her hair glows very nicely. I like the pose and composition as well.
08/22/2005 12:33:50 AM
great stuff... nice use of light to outline the body and good pose.
08/22/2005 12:21:13 AM
Very sexy. I love the light over the front of her torso. The door is a nice architectural frame. The golden tones are lovely.
