Those who suggest this is perversion - I'd ask, is this not the appreciation of the female form from a personal perspective? It's tongue-in-cheek or crass maybe, but not perverse. ;)

Grainy But I bet thats what you were going for-- original and nice photo- 8

Yes, I see your point! It's an intriguing take on the challenge and at least you're blatantly honest. Noise filter is a bit heavy-handed but it's a nicely lit and focused shot.

I'm sure you're getting lots of "wonderful" comments on this. :-) I like the B&W, not sure about the grain though.

preach on brotha' - mine too. On to business...I think it could use some contrast to keep the legs from blending in with the bed.

It's a bit pervy is it not?

Only problem is it's a little grainy. Good idea however but could be a lot better. This image is screaming "Neat Image" and/or Despeckle.

This image has a lot of potential, but it has few bugs that could be improved upon. The grain here is on purpose I guess, but it kind of kills the shape. Also it apears too horizontal. Perhaps positioning the body on an angle with just the bikini and legs showing to make it more abstract flow of shapes. Also since we are alowed to spot edit this challenge, you could have cloned out the specs on the bottom of the right leg. Great effort.

Borders on perversion.

I'm not really sure what do you want to represent...

Like it. The grainyness works very well here indeed.

I too am partial to the shape of the heart. I don't feel that the enhanced grain adds to the intimacy of the photo, at least that's my opinion, and I'd suggest a little more control of the light.
