I'm really, really, really excited to be in the nude challenge. It's not a 'full' nude, so some people may not like it ... but I love the shot. So I don't care how well it goes.

My wife willingly modeled for me. I set up a bright lamp next to her with the intention of getting an orange/golden glow to the shot.

I'm happy with the outcome, even though I confess it could have been sharper.

My first nude and my first entry as a paid DPC member.

I like the comments on this shot super-dave. I think you made a valiant effort here. It's always nice to know where people are coming from.

Good luck to you in the future. Membership is worth it. The update button alone is worth the cost of membership. And finally, congrats to your wife for being bold enough to allow you to do this. Take care.

I like the simplicity of this shot. The coloring is also good and the black border defines it well. Good focus and composition.

Excellent lighting. I love the DOF and color. The gradient background works wonderfully.

a bit too much negative space at the right, but the yellow light makes it allright.

Did you have a gel on your light source or how did you get this awesome color? Very bold image.

Hmmmm...an interesting image. When I saw the thumbnail, it didn't look like it really appeal to me. But upon seeing the full size image, it strikes me as kind of an abstract, and I actually quite like it. The yellow/gold tone adds to the photo, in this case, IMO. Nice job :-)

This is beautiful. It works so well and is really unusual. I love the lighting and the colour of the background really compliments the skin tones in this shot. A very neat idea cleverly executed!The only possible criticism I could make, and this is really pushing it, would be in the very low left hand corner the colour is slightly lighter and this looks a little out of place but other than that I really, honestly can not fault this image! :o) Well done :o)

Nice boob! Colours are also nice and interesting. But just a boob out there all alone! It needs something.. maybe a body. Actually I think the image has worked well, I like how the light fades from bright whit to yellow.

Nice colour and negative space. It doesn't quite have the 'wow' factor some of the other photos have, but very nice and simple.
