Nice lighting, beautiful model, effective pose. Good job

odd to see the face and arm so romanticized but the torso and hand so grotesquely shadowed.

Nice use of lighting and shadows on her body. May be a bit too much lighting on her forehead.

Very Bold shot! Wonderfully captured....

I'm not getting the pose in this. Nice job on the contrast.

nice lighting, I can see great detail in this photo, armhairs, and skin pores. Nice photo. Was it cold during that shoot ? lol...6

She's lovely and looks very comfortable.The lighting is amazing.

This is a very strong, very striking image. The lighting is near-flawless, and is the strength of the image. Nice composition, but she looks a bit uncomfortable. I have two small issues with the image. First, I'd really like to see her right eye. It missing makes the image a little tense. Lastly, that lone right thumb underneath her breast is mildly distracting. Still, a very nice image with a great model and terrific lighting. Well-done.

what a good looking woman. now I think that the light from the top is super effetive. gives this feeling of there being something angelic about her, or maybe there is a god out there; the light in her eye is great. the way the light falls on her face and arm; super. but is the light on her stomach necessary? have you tried with out? It does provide nice lighting on her breats. the shade between her breasts is very nice, but i guess it's just a little toooo harsh. the stomach seems to be overexposed. Maybe this is what you were aiming for but i think a softer light would have been better, if not any. but all in all i think it s a very good shot and she's very attractive. bump (not 10, but high enough to not bring you down i believe ;) )

Well lit and composed.

Lovely great use of light from above and below, must have been some well placed soft boxes. Great work.

Nice lighting. Really brings out the dimensionality of the subject.
10/01/2006 06:50:50 AM
With the position and lighting the way they are, it, awkwardly, makes her torso look deformed Good focus

Nice lighting and very good B&W treatment
