Agree, the jock should have placed much higher, it is simple a great nude. And even as a man I must agree, handsome he is... ;-)

I have a confession to make - this one got me a little hot and bothered:)) (three hail Mary's and two Our Fathers)

This was one of my 9's...amazing shot; surprised it didn't fare better. :)

I loved this pic. Love the angle, the crop, the lighting, the pov....like he's about to join the viewer in a moment. I say, hubby deserves a nice romantic steak dinner and you for dessert. ;-) I was one of the 10's this received.

A tad too much fuzz showing here for me. Good angle and title though. Light is right on. Love the title. 9.

Great job at lighting to really make the models form pop.

enveloping shadows are perfect in this shot

I'll be honest here - I don't care for the POV of the image. Personal choice and I know that so it won't effect scoring. I like the tones used, the lighting is well done, composition is dynamic. I wish you hadn't cut off his head where you did, but I can understand making the choice. 8 - good luck in the challenge! (Great bod by the way...:) )

Thanks for a male nude that's attractive without being objectionable. Good pose, good lighting. Keep it up.

what a jock, great lighting;-)
Revisiting all entrees for the 4th time. bumping up this is a very good jocky and a great shot. Next time ask your model not to wear underwear prior to the shoot, that would prevent even the slight skinfolds you now see between the navel and the..well you know what. seriously a great shot, like his slight smile of discomfort;-)

great shot, however the white band, while likely intentional, may be distracting a bit much from the intent of the image. Good luck.

In many ways exceptionally nice, but the jockey waistband is way too much the visual focus of this image for my tastes.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
08/24/2005 03:37:04 AM
I felt the lighting could be improved and the crop in the center of his face hurt the photo.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
08/24/2005 02:03:15 AM
Overall good. For some in a female audience the pubic hair becomes a bit of a turn off. Having your model insert one thumb into the waistband would give a similar mood .

Nice framing, use of light and shadow

(woof whistle) LOL, VERY seductive shot. Hope it does well. :)

A little more DOF would be nice. I like the lighting...subtle and moody, but not too dark.

Great tones & light, wonderful shot.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
08/23/2005 11:30:19 PM
Nice tone and lighting. A bit soft twords the top (although this might have worked well with the title if it weren't so dramatic).
  Photographer found comment helpful.
08/23/2005 07:51:19 PM
hmmm, pubic hair appears to be "out" these days. It's a bit distracting. I'm bumping a bit though on a nice attempt.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
08/23/2005 10:54:53 AM
Actually quite nice lighting, I don't think the Jockey band adds to the image

what a moment!

I could see this selling as a stock picture but it has no appeal, to me, as a nude. It seems to be to blatent and crass. Besides that, I'd rather be seduced with diamonds. They last forever you know.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
08/23/2005 12:56:52 AM
Maybe it's just my heterosexual bias, but I don't feel seduced. ;-) The lighting and effects seems to work and I'm guessing it will rate highly with the ladies. Good luck with it.

i believe this is a self portrrait, so from one self port taker to another, let me share the "tell". You are looking down at the camera, causing a crease under your chin.
This photo reminds me of when my brother was little and he would run around naked and a little boy would chase after him screaming LOOK NO JOCKS. You were *also* there haha.

08/22/2005 11:12:28 PM
Well done technically. Maybe you should have cropped at the neck IMHO as half a face is rather distracting. 8
  Photographer found comment helpful.
08/22/2005 10:31:34 PM
Nice lighting, I think the undewear is pulled a little low to be sexy, if they were a tiny bit higer it would be more intriging and if they weren't white, the brightness of the band takes away from the model.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
08/22/2005 10:13:46 PM
Interesting angle. Would like to see more of the face, especially the eyes.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
08/22/2005 10:06:44 PM
This one is difficult for me to comment on. Technically I don't see a whole lot wrong with this image. The writing on the wasteband is a little distracting.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
08/22/2005 09:44:47 PM
Nice lighting and dof. I think a completely dark bg might set this apart. Overall, very well done.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
08/22/2005 09:37:58 PM
The photo could be exposed a bit more. I alsobelieve a different crop might help.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
08/22/2005 08:54:47 PM
Seducer or Seducee? LOL, I think this is a good image and it should do well. I don't know if I like the crop. It seems too cramped or something. I wish you the best of luck.

Nice imagw with nice warm colors. Definately seductive. Well done. <8>

I like the lighting of this shot, though I think I might actually prefer this in black and white.

Whoa!... get some clippers ! hehehehe.

technically the lighting is very good and the skin tones look artisitic but very natural.

would like to see less of his face ; ) 8

Stud! Love the hesitation and anticipation of this shot!
  Photographer found comment helpful.
08/22/2005 12:12:09 AM
I really like the physique and the warm/brown tones, but I think the JOCKEY kind of kills it a little. Just crop that part out and you're there!!! (no pun intended)
