Love the sparseness of the image, matches the mood of the lighting well.
Great imagination to compose this.
Well done.

I just now saw this in your profile page. It really should have scored much higher. I think the lighting is terrific and adds much to the composition. Keep up the great work!

This was my second place pick - GREAT job! I swear I thought it was a sculpture of some kind.

I'm curious, where is the rest of your body?
  Photographer found comment helpful.

stunning creative and composition - I thought this would place much higher - maybe wider tonal range would have helped?

Great work - congratulations on a fine image.

you know, as far as creativity and composition this is great, I think it would have scored higher if it were clearer or had richer tones, I'm sure you'll get the hang of that camera soon. nice job.

How'd you do that? wow. 9
  Photographer found comment helpful.
02/04/2007 10:47:34 PM
i like the idea of this and the tones chosen. there are some areas, the left hip especially that just don't seem right, perhaps to soft?

not really clear enough and could use more contrast.

The rectangular shadow on the right side is distracting. This would have been much much better with plain background.

I really like this image, particularly the simplicity of the pose and the duality of the title. The color works well, but the focus seems a bit off and there is some visible noise. The soft focus would work without the noise and the noise would work without the soft focus but the two combined take away from the image IMHO.

Do we want to know where the rest of her went???? *grin*

Great pose and composition, and terrific lighting. It's a real shame that such good "raw material" was ruined in postprocessing, with massive artifacts. I can't tell if they are from sharpening & neatimage, or compression artifacts (your file is only 56KB, so it's needlessly over-compressed). Either way, you obviously have real talent as a photographer, so it's well worth your while learning the basics of postprocessing.

haha this is cool. It looks like a sculpture on a shelf or something. It doesnt look natural or fully human, if that makes any sense. well done.

amazing

hahaha. i like the title.

clever title...decent technicals :) a little halo from the dodging around her hips, but otherwise a nicely executed image.

*of course I had to check :) something else I just noticed that I couldn't put my finger on last night - the tilted horizon. i knew it looked a bit off balance and I couldn't figure out why since your legs are vertical. Now i get it. Looks like you know your ass from your elbow.

The black line along the left side (model's right leg) is very distracting

Interesting shape study.

01/30/2007 12:33:50 PM
Nice work, almost looks like a tabletop image. Interesting light too.

great idea nice borders
  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/29/2007 03:32:55 PM
Brilliant visual pun. I love how fake this looks. Only thing that bugs me is the faint halo of some kind of editing near the bottom and the darker line drawn around the legs. Some layer blending or smudging might make this less obvious. It's great anyway.

well thought out and photographed this is so erotic well done 10

I love the idea of this one, gives another perspective to the body. Lighting is good too.
But, the quality of the photo isn't very good; pixelated. Pity!

Different, nicely lit, and I like it!

Nice image. Just the processing has messed it up I think
