I couldn't find anyone to model for me for this one so i had a crack at it myself. There's just the one studio flash in the top right with a black sheet for the backgroud. As you can see a selective desat with a channel mix layer, then some dodge and burn to make up for more time with the camera then in the gym!

Lovit lovit love it. I like your humour and the title is great! Technically not the most perfect photo in the challenge. The arm crop isn't right. I woule either include the arms or not. Lighting seems quite good to emphasize the body contours. The selective desat is perfect. 8

This was my favorite concept in the challenge, but I think the abdomen and chest look a bit overprocessed...too much dodging/burning and not sharp enough.

not really a nude attempt, more the "swimsuit" category

Hey I have some of those! Just kidding.... sort of.. :-)

Truthfully, I like the color on b/w. Great job!

I hope this does well. Nice tones with the B&W. I hope no one is anal about the desat as it has worked really well with this image! Nice work and good luck!

Very cute. I think it might have worked as well in color, too, but the selective desat does make your point more clearly.
