I disagree ... I LOVE the lighting and exposure and lack of it. It is mysterious and intriquing. Underscored IMO.

Way ta go, Waz - a very respectable score. The highlights and shadows and curves are fantastic. Well done.

I LOVE the lighting on this. I've been hoping to set something up like this for a shot myself, but havne't been able to really work on it yet. If you ever wanted to do a wrtieup on the ligting setup, this should be the one.

Great work, and good luck .

I really like the idea behind this one with the dramtic shodows accentuating the figure and the breast but i think it's slightly too dark and the light in the top right (from the hand i think) is a little distracting from the concept of the picture. Still a great shot though

Wonderful lighting and use of shadows. Very artisic.

perfect harmony 8

I like the idea of a silhouette, but it's just a little too dark on my screen. Mind you...I may need to adjust my monitor.

A very nice figure study and an interesting silhouette, but something seems a bit offish. I think maybe it's the light catching the back of her neck right beside her right arm and the light on her left arm and thumb. This is potentially a very good shot, but the pose could be improved I think.

nice bodylines. a bit too much black for my taste.
  Photographer found comment helpful.

I like the back side lighting in this. Unfortunately I find too much of the image to be in darkness. By turning the model a little and presenting a broader surface so the light falls across it you get more interesting light and shadow play. 7

I think that this has been made to dark (in an attempt to hide against detection). A crop through the middle with the left portion being kept makes this a more powerful image.

Nice lighting, maybe a little to dark, would liked to have had a hint of the face.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/31/2007 05:10:25 AM
a little more light would have helped this image much

although dark, very revealing. awesome.

Interesting silhouette. Seems a bit unbalanced though.

Very nice shape and form here..... and I also like the lighting as well.....

Nice!

Shots like this can be really nice, but this one is just too dark for me. Try to get a little more of the body in a midtone.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/29/2007 11:08:57 PM
Too dark. I see what you are trying to do though. Maybe if the model was more to the right of the frame so there is not so much void area.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/29/2007 08:17:05 PM
love the subtlety that the lighting poses!! well done!
  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/29/2007 07:45:19 PM
Great
  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/29/2007 04:21:51 PM
Hmm, just a little more light, a little more definition, a few more lines.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/29/2007 02:40:51 PM
Very nice. Sexy, tasteful and great lighting!

Very nice low key.

Wow. Very striking and it really stands out. A very nicely done nude composition. Just love the light effects

Wonderful lighting and pose... one minor improvement is the lighting on the model's left arm. I almost feel it would have been better had that arm mixed into the rest of the blackness, leaving only the right side of the body (photo left) in highlight.

Excellent simplicity, a 9 from me.

01/29/2007 09:41:22 AM
good lighting but lack of it around the right arm and the head...
  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/29/2007 04:41:46 AM
great low Key lighting and very erotic.
  Photographer found comment helpful.

classic pose and lighting 10

01/29/2007 04:29:23 AM
nice low key, pose is a bit boring.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/29/2007 04:23:03 AM
Nice lighting
  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/29/2007 01:45:20 AM
beautiful left side shape/textures/shadows but not adequately balanced on the right, except by distracting arm and ?nail? IMHO. I may have just sliced this photo down the middle, which would show the highlight down the line of thirds!.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/29/2007 01:29:17 AM
a little more light slightly further around would have given slightly more texture and impression on the body. good shot.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/29/2007 01:18:30 AM
I love the minimal lighting. Beautiful
  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/29/2007 01:03:54 AM
a little dark for my taste, also find the left hand/arm a little distracting
  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/29/2007 12:42:58 AM
Very classic and nicely performed. In some cases shots such as this with very dark elements can end up creating unwanted distorted bodies. Here however, you have done well.
  Photographer found comment helpful.

I love this style of photo. It's almost abstract. Great work.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/29/2007 12:33:10 AM
i'm interested to see how this one does...very similar to what I *almost* submitted. I went another direction...we'll see if I made the right call :)

Beautiful lighting, sharp focus - subtle approach to the challenge. nicely done.

P

ps...not sure about the light that catches her left arm - might be a little more balanced with out it. not sure. doesn't affect my score either way.
