This is my first challenge submission. It's the first time I've picked up a still camera (outside of P&S) in five years or more.

1) Convince girlfriend to put on fishnet stockings and boots to pose for photo
2) Re-arrange the livingroom, sweep the floor, etcetera.
3) Clamp lamp with pink flood shining down on girlfriend; clamp lamp with blue flood splashing the armoire. (No flash.)

Tried lots of different poses: foot on floor, foot on couch, foot without boots (stockings are still "footwear"!), foot on table -- this one looked more natural, though. Tried lots of poses even here, with and without "motion" on the zipper, with and without hands in the shot, boot zipped or unzipped.

I'm a total newbie at photoshopping -- played with brightness and contrast some, played with unsharp mask a lot, trying to get rid of a little bit of shake. Resized to 640, saved as JPG.

I would have prefered both legs in focus and the hand not blurred. But overall, a gorgeous shot. I love the red and black - very sexy.

Really like this one. Good use of colour and the scene works. Predict a top ten finish. 10

Nice boots and fishnets. More illumination and separation from the background would be better.

Nice shadows and pink - the background does not match the photo though - unfinished pine does not go with fishnet and black leather. A little too much thigh showing as well, everyone likes a teaser - not something too easy. Try using a little more angle - this was a great composition idea!!!
