Shy and beautiful.
Ana has the most beautiful body. Maybe she will let me put a couple more pictures in my portfolio.

This is like a painting from a famous artist of the past. Just lovely. 9

I wish there was a little light separating the hair from the background, and a little more diffused from the front right. Beauty, I'll agree with, but the within itself kind of lost me.

I Love the composition, lights as well as the pose of the model. Maybe the background deviates a little attetion. Very Good.

Very nice, my only complaint is that her hair blends in a little too much with the background. 6.

would have been much improved with more lighting bounced from the left on her hair so that it wasn't lost in the background and the line of her back would be just a bit more distinct. Otherwise, I like the hot lighting and the pose.

I seem to get caught on the shadow created by the right arm. A really nice photo though.

This could use some lighting in the hair, I can't really tell where the hair starts and the background ends. I think the lighting on the model looks great though.

I like the richness of the colors, but it looks like you applied too much contrast. The light seems a little too strong; the hightlights are blown out a little. The tltle doesn't make sense to me in relation to the image.

Her hair seems to dissapear with the background, maybe that was your idea. I like the contrast even though it is overdone. My personal taste I guess. The only thing that really bothers me is her hand. The way she has her arm almost looks chimp like? It doesn't look natural.

Nice shot. The light seems just a bit off.

I like the pose but find the lighting to be too harsh and the focus to be a bit too soft. The soft focus doesn't seem to add to the smoothness of the skin. Was that your reason for using soft focus? Also, skin color is a bit too orangy. WB adjustment needed. Finally, I don't like how the right lower leg was just cut off by the light and just seems to be dangling there.

This lighting is all right, though you need a hair light so that the her head doesnt blend into the background. The pose is a bit awkward as well.

nice shot, im not really a fan of the vivid light effect thoguh.

I think that the light was a bit harsh, and falls off too quickly here.. There are also a few pretty major spots on your camera lens or sensor that may be damaging your score as well this shot seems oversaturated. Either way, lovely pose and model, good luck.

Great capture, would have liked to see more detail in the models hair.

amazing one i really like it, amazing color control

Good, but contrast seems a bit too high and hand is distracting becasue it isn't in natural rest. Would have like to see more of hair.

Could use some light on the head to provide some shape. Otherwise a tighter crop, for example from shoulder to ankle, might work.

08/23/2005 07:52:03 PM
the contrast is turned too high on this one. Nice idea though.
  Photographer found comment helpful.

Color seems a little harsh in the image but I really like the crop/composition and the POV. Her head fades into the background almost. 6 - good luck in the challenge!

Very good europeen feel to this picture. COlours are sharp both on the cloth and on the skin. Perharps a tiny bit overexposed and some light wash on the arm and leg. For the purpose of the shot, a lighter background could've helped, so would a framing. Nice work! 7
08/23/2005 12:20:06 PM
The vanishing leg is a little odd....
08/23/2005 08:30:51 AM
I think backlighting the hair would have shown it against the black background. Currently on my well calibrated monitor, she looks headless.
Still love the overall lighting pose etc.
08/23/2005 07:47:18 AM
the whites are distracting, too much contrast to me
08/23/2005 05:57:24 AM
just a tad too dark, other than that just awesome
08/23/2005 05:08:29 AM
I find the pose of the hand clumsy, and the underneath of the foot unapealing.some adjustments to the pose would create a better image 5
08/23/2005 01:01:32 AM
The intent here is very good.
08/23/2005 12:00:57 AM
Lighting could have been more diffuse IMHO>7
08/22/2005 11:57:37 PM
I like the pose of the model, though I think a second light source from the top left would help seperate her head from the black background and ease the harsh shadows a little. I think the colors look a little too contrasty; maybe the shot would look good in black and white too. Good composition and focus.

The only thing I dislike about this pic is the lighting. The light falling on the arm and leg needs to be softened a little (so the highlights aren't so blown), and this could really benefit from a bit of backlighting or a hairlight to separate her head from the background. I like the pose, and the skin tones are nice.
08/22/2005 09:35:47 PM
Good model and pose. Without being too lecherous, I think this photo would be better if it were lighter. As well accentuating her back, a lighter background would bring out her hair a little better.
08/22/2005 09:19:35 PM
I think b/w might really make this image zing. I like the lighting. Maybe a little more detail in the hair would be nice. Nice capture.
08/22/2005 06:20:28 PM
this potentially could have been one of the top images for me - but the contrast is too start. I cannot see any detail in her hair, or where her head ends for the shadow, nor any detail on her arm for the brightness. The pose is great, it seems such a shame that i cannot see this image in its full glory.
08/22/2005 05:55:06 PM
A bit too yellow in the skin tones....but nice pose
08/22/2005 02:33:54 PM
The lighting is a bit harsh and the pose looks rather unnatural
08/22/2005 12:35:51 PM
The skin tones are very pretty. THe lighing is nice as well. The blue and white are pretty but maybe just a tad distracting. 7
08/22/2005 11:11:08 AM
nice lighting... only complaints is that the right leg seems to disappear unnaturally and it would also have been nice to have the head stand out more against the background.
08/22/2005 10:21:58 AM
Nice job. I wish the hand didn't look so posed. Perhaps a littler brighter. Well done!
08/22/2005 02:34:17 AM
A little over-processed, but it does give it a gritty feel. highlights are overblown on the arm and knee. Nice pose and crop though.
08/22/2005 12:09:20 AM
too blown out. work on the lighting.
