Challenge: Nude IV (Advanced Editing V)
Camera: Nikon D200
Lens: Tamron SP AF 28-75mm f/2.8 XR Di for Nikon
Date: Jan 28, 2007
Galleries: Black and White, Nude
Date Uploaded: Jan 28, 2007

I shot this with my back laying on an old trunk with a black blanket on it and my sb-600 clamped to the ceiling in my garage. I fired it off in commander mode with my D200 and used a homemade reflector made out of aluminum foil for fill light on my back. I started about 90 min before rollover and had given up and had a smoke. With my last puff I laid back down and took this shot. Then I rotated 90 degrees and did some sharpening and dodging and burning, converted to b&w. I submitted, took it out then re-entered it with a minute or so to go, added a quick title and tried to look at it and it was already in voting. I am lucky I got a title at all, lol. Afterwards I went through my other shots and really like this one much better, without the reflector. Although I added a bunch of black to the top border so I couldn't have enterd this crop but the light I like much more.

Great idea. I really like the lighting. I'd really like to see an explination on how this was captured. Other than that, I cannot think of any suggestions to improve my already high score. Good luck.

Just marvelous! Unlike any nude I've ever seen, looks like something Dali would have done. 10

That cold huh!
This is one of my favourites,
I love the lighting and composition. The different perspective makes it even more interesting. Added to that the breath is just the icing on the cake.
Well done. Bumping this up to 9

Fantastic shot! Great perspective, pose, lighting. Excellent idea and wonderful execution.

this is a very interesting point of view, can't wait to read how you did this. I assume you used smoke or a smoke-machine (what's that called?) for the exhale?

bumping up, because it's good.

Nice use of form - quite striking. Not entirely sure about the smoke but it fits your title and therefore what I think you were after.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/29/2007 12:58:28 PM
Surely a stunning composition. Maybe you could have avoided the smoke as that makes it very evident that the image is rotated. Therwise it gives an impression of a man suspended in air. A striking image nonetheless
