Thanks to my very brave model. A little light spot editing and dust and scratches filter applied as well as b&w converison via the channel mixer.

I hope the voters will be kind ;-)

Thanks to everyone for your supportive comments. I'm glad to see the DPC community emabracing my beautiful friend who bravely agreed to model for me....

Yey! Good to see an authentic body in the challenge. She has a kind face and beautiful skin.

I agree with Elvis here... also the arm coming out of the shot was kind of a turn off for me. And yes, lovely model.

I find the slotted lighting a little distracting on this shot, maybe try it with the blind up?

Okay not a models body, but I like this shot nontheless. She looks natural and kindly and you were able, to capture this attributes in your shot. Good luck in the challenge!

I like the lighting, but not the composition. Too much empty space at top, and that sliver of light on the far left is distracting.

This image is fun. It shows a self confident fun woman who has a radiating smile. So nice seeing someone open to their nakedness after voting on so many people trying to hide. I love the lighting & composition. 7

This seems to be a nude candid. The pose itself is OK, but having the model looking into the camera and smiling really takes away from the image. Maybe if the model were looking toward the lightsource, it would be better.

lacks of contrast, window-blind shadows CAN be used to add "drama", but you failed through overexposure

Nice idea, however IMHO I think the light lines on the face detract a bit from the shot, perhaps consider blanking off the top of the window, then possibly a reflecter of sorts below and between the model and camera to maintain a bit of light on the face.

Lighting is poor.

Cutting off the arm is slightly distracting

I love the confidence in her pose and smile. The photo captures personal beauty! I like it!! Good job!

good idea but it seems flat as far as the light goes
  Photographer found comment helpful.

this is such a happy woman, happy withwho she is and not afraid showing it :D

could use a bit contrast, though, lighting is sweet, really fits this hapy image.

Beautiful old fashioned feel to this shot, I love the way the morning lighting shadows pattern the body.

I think I'd like to see you less centered in the shot, more open space to maybe the right of your body.....and that left arm a little more relaxed. Good work!

I love that smile!! The lighting is of course harsh but I think it fits. It really works with the pose of the model to say "this is me - let the sun in 'cause I'm out in the open and confident with myself!" Makes a very wonderful emotional shot.

That's a great effect with the lighting! I'd like to see the rest of the arm in the photo.
