Beautiful model, great alignment of the photo to your book title, and I must admit, a bit arousing as well! Fine job, and definately a top 10 for this challenge.

Superb piece of art. Just beautiful. The prism colours add life to this image. Her expression is nice and soft. My only suggesion would be to add a tiny bit of contrast to the black portions of the image - it kind of looks a bit greysh (but it could be a monitor calibration issue.) Among my top pics.

Good work.
The mild misty toning, the well placed light effects, the facial expression, the color and the nudity seems to communicate the late sixties / early seventies from the 20th century.

this is a very good photo. The circles on her body bring back memories and are somewhat like those days were. To me, this title that you picked screams out for bold, bright and over the top colors. That's what my memory is telling me anyway.

theres two reasons why this shot works...

One of the best adapted images to your book, although I don't think that Stark Naked was nearly that attractive. :) Interesting subject lighting. A little more brightness/contrast would might be good.

this is such a fantastic shot! Did you use a projector to impose the funky bublles? Very tasteful shot as well

Very good lighting. The girl is very pretty!
  Photographer found comment helpful.

Sensational. I hope there is an explanation available as to how this was done as I'd love to know. Beautiful model as well.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
11/13/2003 12:25:02 AM
Very nice idea. I think more contrast or slight adjustment of levels would have made the image "punch" a little more.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
11/13/2003 12:06:55 AM
pretty interesting. nice use of empty space in the background.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
11/13/2003 12:02:12 AM
really like this... I think more of the projection on the face to draw my eye up to the very cool looking expression would have helped. whisp of hair intersecting with the eye is distracting on the most interesting part of the photo.

I don't know about book title, but photo itself is just piece of art! Always surprised how ppl do such thing and I can't, heh. Good luck to you with the ribbon.

Yeah, that's how the world looks on acid. Amazing lighting and effects, and it helps to have such a gorgeous model.

Very good representation of the book. Even though I didn't immediately know which book this was for, (I've read it a number of times, and lived it too) I see no reason to deduct for that.
Possible some post challenge layers to increase contrast would be helpful.

Very good. 9

Nice picture and model. I had liked a little more contrast (backgroud completely BLACK) and sharpness. Good idea anyway.

The way she is pressing her arms inwards justifies the tight crop. As if she is squeezing herself into the frame, I like that concept, certainly something different. The idea of the projected lighting is very good, I especially like the way one eye is highlighted within the circle with the curved hair below it leading into the eye. I am impressed!
