A great idea which could have been better. First fix the wrinkly sheet, then pose those terrific boots better. Take a black marker and make her tattoo really black so it stands ot more. Get another light to kill the shadow by her leg an arm. I really like this and I think you should play with it some more. it is soooo close to being a stunning photo - 6

Wrinkly backdrops suck. Good concept for a pic. Like the heels and cuffs, good combo. just a little too soft for my tastes. Lighting is too flat. You could add a little mystery and drama with some alternative lighting.

leather may not be entirely appropriate for an artistic nude, but definitely _could_ be categorized under the B challenge from last week ( boots, bondage, butt tattoo) or under s&m, which is some distance from nude. And a little less appropriate for this site, to my antiquated and highly opinionated mind.

However, It appears that the sharpest focus in the photo is on the creases created by that right boot...was that intentional?

ooooooh....fetish wear...what fun!

a little soft in the focus. toning is nice, but the lighting is off. Try using a reflector to lose some of the shadows, or move the model away form the curtain with a longer lens. Compositionally, it doesn't grab me as more than a person handcuffed in boots standing in front of a curtain. It has potential to be more, but somehow just didn't grab me. good effort, either way.

too out of focus ... sorry 4/10

The image is interesting and it represents something that I'm familiar with, so it has more impact for me personally. I can see you likely went black and white to enchance the contrast between the boots/cuffs to the skin/background, and a lot of photographs in this genre seems to be black and white. It would be interesting to see color vs black and white, but I'm not sure there is enough contrast between the skintones and the background, esp as she is standing so close to it. Perhaps different lighting could enhance and emphasize a little more. The image is also somewhat blurry/soft, this is more pronounced with the hands. It's visually appealing, but I think with a few adjustments it could have an even greater impact.

I love this......sexy shot. Nice work. You need a better drape.

I like the subject and composition, but the blur on the hands and the wrinkles at the feet are distracting.

composition? and a bit blurry.

A bit too blurry, for my taste.. And if you are going to use a backdrop, placing your model against it isn't going to help you much, I'm afraid. Pull her back, put a light on the backdrop (to blow it out of the picture, basically). Cool idea and good pose.

this looks a tad out of focus in a way that doesn't really add to the shot. Otherwise, the use of lines and composition is interesting. The cuffs look a bit too loose though!
