A lovely poetry in image form. Had you named it Nuit it would have made it totally universal. This image required the right time, the right pose and the dleicate lighting. You got them all. The fading into the sky is great as it adds to the mystery.

Congratulations on your top 20 finish. Indeed a very superb entry.

Nice effect! From a distance it looks like it's done on the beach with a sunset! Well done!

Awesome shot. Almost as if the person's arching on the sea.

Very cool!

great placement of the light! way to show off flexibility in an artful manner. the barely lit silhouette is elegant. I would have liked a bit more room at the top, and possibly another fill light to get detail on the front of the body similar to what is shown on the back. still, this is very good - 7

Very nicely done. Superb colors and lighting.

Very nice. Would have liked to see more detail (lighter background) around the hair/face.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
08/26/2005 02:07:41 PM
Very creative. I like the originality of this shot though I wish you would have made the setting a bit more appealing. Good work none the less.

This is great. I am back to comment. I hope this is a top ten photo. I really like the sunrise effect you have come up with. I like the composition. Good luck.

This would get a medal from me. Beautiful lighting and stunning concept.

unique idea...a little on the dark side though...7

Nice artistic shot with. Great lighting.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
08/25/2005 12:45:53 AM
Very interesting.....you should re-shoot this during a real sunset sometime (of course that'd require a nude beach in California)
  Photographer found comment helpful.
08/24/2005 09:36:41 PM
Interesting lighting, but a bit fuzzy. That aside, I really like the pose and the concept. 8

Creative take on the challenge! I like the lighting & dark silhouette.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
08/24/2005 06:30:36 PM
This is quite a lovely shot, I love the yellow into red that it creates. I might have also lit the other side of her, as that would have made the image slightly more unique. Good luck.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
08/24/2005 03:16:40 PM
This is a little too staurated to work as well as it ought to, IMO, and it's showing too little bosy/BG separation also, for me. I don't ask for a lot of it, but I can hardly make out ANY separation on the right side. Even the left side could use a little more. It's a well-seen shot, shows imagination and strong composition; I think it just needs better post-processing to be the best it could be.

one of the best, amazing, i really like it
  Photographer found comment helpful.
08/24/2005 02:58:50 AM
Very cool. Would have like just a little more lighting to the left around the hair. Beautiful ideas and photo. I gave you 9.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
08/23/2005 11:46:14 PM
I like the graphic look of this. The sheet reminds me of desert sand almost and the light really adds to that thought. Good imagination. I think I will bump this one up a bit.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
08/23/2005 07:35:40 PM
Absolutely stunning, the sheets of the bed look like wave on the sea. My only complaint is that I would like to see more contrast in the silhouette. 10!
  Photographer found comment helpful.
08/23/2005 03:12:16 PM
wow, this is really awesome. i love the silohuette, and love how the light accentuates the figure. great job keeping mystery but really playing up the figure. very creative!
  Photographer found comment helpful.
08/23/2005 01:14:32 PM
Nice interesting lighting.The wringles of the sheet distract a little, but still different from most other images.

What a fantastic photo!!!!
  Photographer found comment helpful.
08/23/2005 12:06:16 PM
I think a white light rather than a red one would really made this image pop. The composition and idea are excellent. White light would have given you a better tone to work with.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
08/23/2005 11:40:16 AM
not really sure what to say about this shot. dont know how the yellow light was created or what it symbolizes. just not sure i like the red colorcast.

left and right side squeeze her too much... give her abit of air. 7
  Photographer found comment helpful.
08/23/2005 06:38:06 AM
great idea, love the colors, wish you had had a firmer mattress. the creases and wrinkles really take away from an otherwise remarkable, unique image.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
08/22/2005 11:35:52 PM
Well lit great composition and exposure. The bed is distracting to a degree, I would have posed her on something hard so there would be no depressions. 9
  Photographer found comment helpful.
08/22/2005 11:16:59 PM
This would be super cool without the shadow of the headboard on the lower left, and the sinking of the hands into the mattress. The lighting is very different from the rest of the challenge, and it's a neat idea for a pose!

08/22/2005 10:46:11 PM
love the setting sun light effect. very unique shot.

Nice colors and composition. Very well executed, and very limber. Nice job.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
08/22/2005 10:12:25 PM
uhmmm ouch! Nice colors... Great way to display flexibility as an artist ;-)
  Photographer found comment helpful.
08/22/2005 10:07:05 PM
Interesting effect. It's almost like you see more detail when you are looking slightly away from the detail you are trying to see. I do think that I'd prefer a little more luminosity around the top side of the arc formed by the model. Not a lot more. Just enough to bring the detail forward a tad. Good job

an interesting photo, though to me, the subject seems to be the light. I think also, that the image would benefit if her hair was down instead of up.

beautifully composed and creative

Wow, this is awesome! Very original, well done 10

08/22/2005 04:57:44 PM
I wish I could have seen more definition on the "outside" of the model. It's just a little dark (at least on my screen). The pose and idea is great though. 8.

As he slaps his forehead and says "why didn't I think of that?" he votes 10

08/22/2005 04:26:38 PM
great pose, i wonder if there was a way to get the same effect without having the yellow light source in the image.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
08/22/2005 02:58:56 PM
Very creative, well thought out and executed. Good luck

Interesting view of the challenge. Well done!
  Photographer found comment helpful.
08/22/2005 12:27:43 PM
I really had to stare at this to figure out that the body was a bridge over the light. I think the idea is awesome, but maybe a blue light would've worked better but that's just me.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
08/22/2005 09:36:15 AM
wo very creative i love it i think a tiny bit lighter might have better but this is great
  Photographer found comment helpful.

I like the red glow and reflection off the body in this shot. Very creative pose.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
08/22/2005 06:45:47 AM
if this pic was a bit lighter, a more defined contour pic I would have given it a full score.

08/22/2005 05:29:28 AM
Beautiful model, Very interesting lighting, and athletic too. I love the way the light outlines this models legs and back in red. Very sensual, whether you meant it to be or not. <8>
  Photographer found comment helpful.
08/22/2005 03:24:26 AM
i dont believe the yellow glare cut off by the bed is helping the image. It would have been beautiful done outside with the sun rather an an artifical light. The silhouette is self is great.
