Very nice lighting,sure an unusual nude shot that really show the curves of her body and let's not forget,well done on the model for holding the position

I like the unconventional pose and the lighting and think that it is awesome that the model will have this to look at someday when she is perhaps not so slender or nearly as flexible. Some people have discussed the hair and I find that her hair and her anonymity are perfect, and the shadow in the background is perfect... without it, it would seem as if she wasn't grounded somehow.

Safe to say I like this shot.

No. I won't do it. I will not ask the obvious rude question. I'm better than that. Well, not really. Ok, I'm really quite weak and childish. So... what exactly is she practicing for?
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/16/2009 11:03:04 PM
Why is this naked woman doing this? Why must she be naked to do this?

I'm at a loss here... but... it's sharp and well lit. It' just makes no sense to me. *sigh*

Great shot.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/16/2009 07:14:39 PM
Not sure if it's an edit, over-sharpen, or compression artifact but there are a lot of jaggies along her body.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/16/2009 05:37:57 PM
so not my cup of tea...sorry...your focus is spot on, colors and tones are good, lighting is good...but it does not appeal to me...
  Photographer found comment helpful.

Unique pose, and really good lighting.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/16/2009 04:01:11 PM
I like the lighting, but not crazy about her hair. The body is so sleek and her form is awesome, then her hair just throws the flow off a bit for me. Maybe if it had been pulled back into a bun or ponytail?

Beautyful picture
  Photographer found comment helpful.

Absolutely stunning. The lighting, coupled with the dark background really accentuate the wonderful skin tone of your subject. I should add that the pose also adds to the artistic value of this image.

Here is hoping that you don't get hammered by some of the prudes on this site.

Very well done indeed.

great stuff

(if ever you're looking for an assitant.....)
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/12/2009 04:00:12 PM
Very acrobatic.... I like your lighting of this one, especially the fact that you used direct. Too many photographers now days used soft boxes...boo! However, really would have liked to see another hair light on the back of her head where the hair falls toward the ground back lighting it some....detail is lost toward the bottom, which isn't that bad, but I think a additional light might have helped a bit. Great capture at any rate.

Interesting choice for a pose =D Cool photo, I like it. lighting and shadows really flatter the body.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/12/2009 02:23:04 PM
Nice display of the human form. Is this a yoga move? Probably an advanced one.
I hope you don't get too many 1's from the prudes.

Great lighting, creative pose. Nicely executed.

03/11/2009 09:47:32 PM
I like the composition. My only gripe is that it kind of looks like her breast is glowing...

Just keep shooting. You'll get it right ;)
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/11/2009 01:15:06 PM
Eloquent symmetry and form, though the skin tones seem a bit off, at least over here.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/11/2009 01:14:07 PM
Lovely pose, highlighting nice diagonals.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/11/2009 01:03:52 PM
