Challenge: Black & White III (Advanced Editing V)
Camera: Nikon D70
Lens: Tamron SP AF 28-75mm f/2.8 XR Di for Nikon
Location: Boone, NC
Date: Nov 11, 2006
Aperture: f18
ISO: 200
Shutter: 1/125
Galleries: Nude, Studio
Date Uploaded: Nov 12, 2006

Shot in the studio with a large soft box over head for lighting. Chose the blue channel and converted to grayscale. Cloned out a bunch of little frizzy hairs, added vignetting, dodged and burned her hair. Actually shot for a producut class where I was to concentrate on the use of fabric and I really liked the contrast betweent the texture of her hair with the cloth.

I don't like the composition. on the body there are some black point(mole I think) that you can with very easy clone out. good the details in the hairs and good the black and white. I am not sure that 6 is the just rate but 5 is too low. 6

Such beautiful contrast showing the highlights in her hair and the fabric. Beautiful composition and model too! Fabulous, flawless photo! 10

It is hard to define the nuance that can take an image from average to extraordinary, but you have found it here. I could probably go on for a page about why I like it.... but you already know all of this because this type of image is not accident. Fantastic work and a 10.

Beautiful pose, fills up the picture while leaving you with a feeling of space around the model. The highlights on the material drapped behind her are so well done you can feel the silkiness of the material. Her pose is perfect giving a nice curve to her waist and giving the feel of the ultra feminine. The texture showing in the hair adds to this greatly as it contrasts so well with the softness of the skin. I am sure the lighting you have used just made this picture and in my opinion you have done an outstanding job of capturing her timeless beauty. Great classic photo!
