Thank you to my good friends who agreed to pose for this challenge.

-----------------------------------

Thank you everyone for your great comments, and thanks for this Blue.

One thing that was mentioned I feel I should comment on: a few people with a higher brightness on their monitor noticed a piece of dark cloth on the male's genital area. Although I took many different poses with these two models, on this particular one, I felt it would be better to use a dark cloth and then burn more on top of it to darken it to black. It looked fine on my screen (which I calibrate with a professional spider), but I didn't think of checking it with higher brightness to make sure the piece of cloth didn't show anymore. Although I doubt it is really distracting (most people won't even see it), I would have preferred if the black cloth didn't show at all. Oh well, live and learn!


Processing was pretty straight forward. I shot in color, then did:
cropping
channel mixer to convert to B&W
burning
minor spot edit and minor NI


A few didn't like the "plastic look" on the male's body. I should say this was intentional and not created by Neat Image at all. I asked him to shave all just before the shoot, and applied oil on his skin to better catch the reflections.

Finally, about the final crop: yeah, I know, I cropped the foot in half. :-) My original shot has the complete foot. This crop was intentional too because I felt the overall look was best balanced this way. I tried with the complete foot, but it wouldn't work... well, not to me anyway! ;-) I finally chose to cut it. Regarding the negative space, well tough, I liked it that way! LOL!

Again, thank you all.
Cheers!


/msg edit:
I don't submit often on DPC anymore. People email me when a NUDE challenge pops up and they challenge me to submit. I tried to surprise people this time by using models other than Bianca. I hope I succeeded in that.
That said, my hat goes out to all the photographers who submit to DPC on a regular basis. I have great respect for you guys. Some portfolios around here are absolutely breath taking in their wide variety of subjects and artistic quality. I am amazed by the talent and dedication people show to their photography art. I may be known on DPC for my nudes and fetish photos, which I specialize in because it was my passion and it also became my full time job. But I am nowhere near top photographers on DPC when it comes to variety of subjects! And I am truly amazed by your work.

You have my sincere and utmost respect.

Really amazing to see two people had the nerve to give this photo a 1. It's truely an awesome photo and totally deserves the number 1 spot for the challenge. Great job.

I wanted to add this comment after reading your comment that you made underneath your photo....My laptop has a brighter view than my stationary pc-I don't really notice the cloth around the male model's hoo hoo and ha ha's. I love the crop because it brings the focus in on the overall pose. My favorite feature about this photo is the excellent lighting that shows on the female model and the soft lighting showing on the male model. The overall picture quality, on all my computers that I have used to look at this photo, is just truly awesome and mind blowing!! Now that is just my opinion

I think this photo deserves all 10's-I really hate to see anything lower than a nine on this photo.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
02/10/2007 12:24:27 PM
Congrats with the win! I think a non-crop would have had less impact than this. It's simply stunning, light is pure excellence, and honest models. I love it!

This is wonderful. In my opinion it is artistic due to the flow and positions. It "moves" like a dance and makes me feel there is more about to happen.

Excellent! and congrats on the blue!

Thank you kindly for submitting and sharing the information about this picture. I rarely give 10s but this got a 10 from me (and 122 other people!). Not only is this a marvelous study of the human form, but I am in awe of your ability to light both bodies so well when the tones are so different for each. A beautiful photograph which says so much in so many different languages - thank you!

Interesting concept, perfect lighting, great poses and composition (okay, maybe including his whole foot would've been better, but that's a detail), perfect postprocessing, -- I think you have a winner! 10

02/03/2007 03:05:27 AM
Some more light on the backdrop could have worked better. (I double-checked my monitor before commenting :)
The whole photo goes on the dark side a bit, and the black body could stand out some more if e.g. a spotlight was aimed to the backdrop right behind him, in order to provide some kind of aura around him.

Not trying to teach you how to shoot (you obviously know your photography) just trying to explain what I would have liked better. Only a 9 for this.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
02/02/2007 02:55:10 PM
Masterful! The lighting is so excellent in this image. At first the shot felt a little out of balance to me, but the more I look at it, it is alright. I think the poses are great and the background is well chosen. The full range of tones in this image really looks great. Amazing job.

  Photographer found comment helpful.
02/01/2007 09:14:48 PM
Excellent job!!! I love this image on so many different levels. The pose and lighting are damn near perfect. The subject matter is beautiful and the statement is very powerful. The only tiniest nitpick I have is what appears to be a sock or dark fabric on your male models "bits". I understand why you've done this, but I think that slightly more careful placement of your female models right arm would have made for better "concealment".
  Photographer found comment helpful.
02/01/2007 04:13:54 PM

I like the idea of using this handsome black and white couple and the (difficult) exposure is spot on - dramatic lighting too. The pose itself doesn't work for me - posed is fine but this one is just a step too contrived for my tastes.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/30/2007 05:57:18 PM
magnificent models...professionally lit and well executed technically. not sure about the crop of his foot and her knee, but there's enough goodness going on here to make up for it. Top notch entry...very well done.

Excellent! the lighting gives strong structure to the models. My only nitpick would be that the negative space on the left may be unnecessary and doesn't help that much. well done, 8.

brilliant lighting. Only thing IMO that I dont like is the guy. he just isnt anywhere cut up or buffed enough in comparison to the female. Plus his pose is off putting to me.

Saying that I would say top 5. Awesome work! 10

Very good lighting. A bit too stylised for me, but I still appreciate the work and effort that's gone in to it. Good job.

Stunning - lovely study of shape, form, and light. You've managed to light both light and dark skin incredibly well. Though I have an increasinly lousy track record of picking DPC winners, I'll go out on a limb with this one and say it'll get the blue.

awesome composition ... i'd have liked to see you fill the frame with the models though. in this case i think the negative space is wasted. but it's still worth a 10! well done!!

Beautiful shot. Both forms are well posed and the lighting is perfect for this type of shot. Well done.

Very well done. Intriguing. I'm trying to figure out if you are making some sort of statement with the obvious disinterest of the male.

Ribbon! Great choice for B & W, wouldn't have worked as well in colour. The light, pose and composition all work very well.

That's a great shot, but why did you crop out his feet?

Great shot! An 8!

Beautiful models and lighting. Something about the composition just feels off to me. I think it's a lot to do with where their limbs are cut and how his gaze takes you away from the focus of the shot.

her body is amazing but his torso and legs comes off looking plastic. lighting on both faces and arms excellent

This has to ribbon. Beautifully posed, beautifully lit. Well done.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/29/2007 12:41:56 AM
I almost think this would work a little better if it was a portrait instead of landscape capture.

Then her leg and his foot could both be captured. That said, excellent capture. Quite possibly a ribbon here.
