I like the "rough" parts of this shot. It adds to the mood and flavor. And if this is of you (i suspect it is)....you are very, very hot!!

Nice technique, feathery fill lighting, wether bounced or augmented it works well. The framing is nice the rigidity and centerness of the window sets up the curves of the model. The color with the exception of the over red thigh,( incandecet bulb as fill? try using a full spectrum bulb if so, you wont get the orange tone to the light) is nicely handled.
How this fared so poorly is beyond me. Had you replaced this beautiful woman with a fresh bell pepper you would have garnered many fewer votes below five, but some subjects blind certain viewers to the quality of a shot.

This shot should have placed much higher. Perfectly met the challenge even though it might be a bit too bright at the top right.

And as usual, the model is lovely..

Ones??? They're nuts!!

it would be interesting to have a mode on DPC so you can see how these "1" voters vote on other challenges... not necessary to identify who they are, just how they voted on other challenges...

I am blown away by the people who dish out 1's so easily, this deserved better, you can disagree with a subject matter, or style, but at least give someone credit for meeting the challenge topic, photogrpahic technique, etc. I was also victim to quite a few ones and twos on this challenge. I think you did a fine job on this photo.

How could this picture get 12 1's? Looks like there are some haters out there. 1's are for out of focus pictures that don't meet the challenge.
Without them this would have scored in the 6 range and finished much higher. Congratulations Napalm on a great picture.

Looks like the morality squad did it again. This should have scored much higher and should have been among the top-10. Keep up the excellent work.

Wonderful picture, but the uneven lighting in the back keeps catching my eye. A different crop might work really well, with none of the window frame on the sides.

:-O Well, that's a mighteee purdy cowgirl if ah ever done seen one! Looks like a Nymph ;)

Very, very nice. Great job with the light coming through the window not turning the stunning model into a silhouette. Centered composition works well because she draws you into the image. This should score very well. Good luck and thanks for sharing. My only 10. I will be very disapointed if this doesn't ribbon.

Stunning model and nice use of natural lighting. I love the sheer curtain and the way the light falls onto her face and even comes through the hat!

This is a great photo...looking at the model...she makes me wish I didn't have that "crispy-orange chicken" from Applebee's after I spent 3 hours working out today!!! :(

Great work!!! 10's 4U!! (a few more jogged miles for me)

Lovely model. The posture and expression on her face add a lot to the image. Not to menion the hat :)
  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/13/2006 02:29:06 PM
pretty, but would be nicer if it was focusing more on one part of the woman
  Photographer found comment helpful.

Lovely composition. The light on the legs is the only distraction. Beautiful model as well, and I love the look on her face

Nice shot . . . . beautifull model !
Pitty about the blown highlights !
  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/13/2006 01:24:29 AM
Great model. I think a tighter crop from the hipline up and very close on the sides would produce a more dramatic effect and eliminate the distraction of the window frame and sill. IMHO

The winner here!~10

I hate the hat, but absolutely love the rest of the picture. Great job of backlighting, and not loosing the detail in the forground. You might have even been able to go a little darker, but this is a very nice image. <9>

I don't like the way her mouth is open.. looks strange.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/11/2006 11:55:52 PM
This is a bit over exposed to suit me. Her face is disappearing in the burn out. Good setup and pose.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/11/2006 08:09:26 PM
Hot, and very nice soft, natural light.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/11/2006 05:38:11 PM
The backlight is good by maybe a reflector in the front to remove some of the shadows.
  Photographer found comment helpful.

Downright sexy and mweting and exceeding the challenge. I would have experimented with different placements of subject in the frame and yet I realize that the center (as is) is probably the best because it reduces the exhibition of the backlight glare. In other words if you shit subject left then a mass of of the glare will be in the viewers face. A very good effort because adequate lighting depicts the form. 7 on my first pass.

I think this is a good shot. shows the perfect outline of a human body, through a bright window.
