Years ago I took a couple of "bodyscapes" with a toy car driving on a nude model. I had just about forgotten those photos, but when all in the same week I discovered the work of Allan Teger (//www.bodyscapes.com/) and this Nude III challenge was announced, an idea was born. The idea was actually a skier maneuvering some extreme "moguls", but these cute little penguins were hiding in the same toy-box. Here is the Extreme Skiing out-take.

I see you mention Teger, in fact I was reminded of his work when I saw this image. You gave it a nice twist with the penguins. It might have worked better however, with a deeper DOF, it would have given the impression of a smaller scale, less like a macro.

I just saw that movie a few days ago. What a clever idea. Are those icebergs I see? LOL. Great sense of humor.

Very original. Made me smile. Nicely shot too.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
08/28/2005 12:02:29 PM
Cute. Like the idea. Think the toning is a little harsh on the penguins. Good on the body.

So would this be the south pole? Doesn't look so cold to me!

Where can I buy the postcard? This is great.

LOL. Cute. Don't know if a tux is considered nude though. Anyway, nice tone, lighting, and concept.

This made me laugh, love the photo :-)

Very fun concept. Reminiscent of some famous work with nudge photography, with the same odd humorous twist.

I Love this picture. Very creative!!!
I like the use of lights and textures in B/W.
Great!
  Photographer found comment helpful.
08/27/2005 01:35:04 AM
funny, good use of DOF, perfect lighting for the nipple in the foreground. I guess I would have called it "caravan of penguins" but that may sound funny to American ears, associating the word with cars instead of camels, like I do.

funny and clever - a wonderful idea. (lucky penguins..)

08/26/2005 11:03:21 PM
So how many times did you have to reset the penguins?

J/K All kidding aside, a very nice photo. Very clever and well executed photo

An image with great humor of penguins marching along a highly sensual terrain. Bumping up.

  Photographer found comment helpful.
08/25/2005 08:42:53 AM
Dang buy I have a soft spot for penguins (though not usually my bosoms) and this just totally appeals to me. But then I like surreal art and this is certainly that. I'm sure there could be all kinds of messages about womens' bodies in comparison to peaks of snow drifts but I won't ask! Works for me though!

Nice Icebergs!
  Photographer found comment helpful.
08/25/2005 05:46:15 AM
Too cute! Interesting exercise in exposure here, getting those little black and white guys just right. An adorable shot. This gets me on cuteness alone!

It doesn't look cold enough for penquins :) The shadows are nice, the dof is right on imo. Good crop and use of b/w.

This is a wonderful image. Makes me wish I was a penguin 9

I´d like to be one of those penguins. 7

08/24/2005 06:13:07 AM
This is cool.
Reminds me of the climber series.
Good lighting, composttion etc, and good for a laugh.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
08/24/2005 12:08:37 AM
While the penguins are very cute i don't really understand their presence in this... area. Are they known for climbing mountains?
  Photographer found comment helpful.
08/23/2005 11:48:34 PM
Cute. I like the high key tones on the body. The lighting is perfect for this concept.

funny .... good idea ...thinking outside the box
  Photographer found comment helpful.
08/23/2005 08:29:35 PM
This made me chuckle. the lighting in the top right corner is over exposed. perhaps moving the lighting back a bit would help ease that. I like the creativity here, but because of the improper lighting, I can't give it a high score.
08/23/2005 07:31:50 PM
You don't often see a whimsical nude.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
08/23/2005 06:07:07 PM
Funny twist on current cinema, I'd say too washed out on the right side, however it could represent the harsh arctic landscape.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
08/23/2005 03:03:07 PM
I usually vote down the 'clever' images, probably because I'm not that clever, but in this case I'm not going to. The positioning of the beguins and the way they are lit is good. The little guy trailing behind adds some drama. And most important, it made me smile. Thanks!
  Photographer found comment helpful.
08/23/2005 01:32:04 PM
This is one of the better nude pictures of breasts, sorry you had to ruin it with plastic penguins.

I love the lighting, it does make me think of snowdrifts. The penguins were a nice touch. I hope that she enjoyed posing for this.

Great movie and creative approach to sensually represent it.

Coolest one that I have seen so far. Everything, from the penquins shadows, to the gentle slopes on the human form, fit together excellently.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
08/22/2005 01:08:36 PM
very original. I always like body landscapes. Penguins are very well placed (love the trailing penguin in the back, great detail). I wonder if the photo had been more high-key, if it would have added a "snow effect" look to the image... like it was in the great north. 8

08/22/2005 01:21:18 AM
nice play on the movie. Got a little smile out of me. I love the last peguin in the line. The lighting is a bit harsh over the shoulder and the right breast fades into the background a little too much for my likings.
