taken this morning of my patient girlfriend who was kind enough to pose for me. she felt it was to early for taking photos but she knows that i need the practice. used my tripod and my time delay on the camera to avoid camera shake as some of the freehand ones were a bit blurry. i also had to use a flash light to trick the camera to use the autofocus, i think it worked out well. once in photoshop i changed it to B&W and felt it wasn't showing the shadows enough so i adjusted the curves and this is the finished product. any tips, ideas or comments in general will be apreciated

Indeed you are a skillful doctor.
I like the pose and lighting WITHOUT that tattoo
Are you able to remove it without any operationS?

This could have been good. Beautiful curve, nicely framed, but the top half of the photo has no good relation to the lower half. The bright blown out vertical framed by near balck distracts from your subject. The off horizontal line up the center is not pleasing at all. Then there's the little corner of pillow to the left that just makes your eye go... why?

Open curtain is disturbing.

I would have preferred to see the tatoo that two beautiful buttocks. I also find that the person is proposed too much plane what leaves a quite empty background, hardly open curtains. There is a beautiful imbalance.

I love this shot because I love to exemplify the beauty of the woman's body with my photography, even if it is just a small glimpse of the bare back like in my submission to one of the last challenges. I love to show people how beautiful we women can really be!

You got to be careful with backgrounds. The pillow on the left, the crumpled sheet, the (not) horizontal line of the bed. Little things which make a good photo great.

I like the idea of the shot, but it has a few problems. Tilted horizon is a big problem for me, that could be easily fixed in a graphics program. Composition could be stronger, perhaps moving the model to the other side of the bed and not having hte matress showing on the opposite side of her could have strengthened it.

Your background failed to go completely black on the black portions. That would have helped the shot some.

I'm going to give you an 8 though. Nudes in non-nude challenges don't tend to do really well around here, so I wish you the best of luck.
