Thanks for all the kind comments. I know the cropping isn't satisfactory, I would have liked more of the foot in particular, but that was all the space I had to work with where I was, so the head and foot had to go, lol.
It was a big risk to throw a nude into a table shot, but fun anyway, and I liked the tones that I managed to achieve in the shot.
And nsjabs23, your work was my inspiration for this image, I'm flattered that you said it was like yours! I think your work is just amazing :-)

LOL, not a normal table setting in our house. Love your idea and execution. 9

Very nice duotone processing. The cropping seems a bit odd, the model's left knee seems to be disassociated with the form.

Reminds me of my image for "skin". I like this very much. Wish the crop would have been a different one the foot. Nice lighting, beautiful skin, well done.

Although technically a good picture, I am not a black and white fan and I am not a naked study fan. A bit old fashioned, they call it. I am not voting on this one, it will be unfair to the photographer.

I like the lighting and tones here, but the pose feels strained and the decapitation makes me uncomfortable. Worth a 6 though. :)

Interesting, unique and different - an inspired set piece perfectly executed. The very sutble treatment and excellant grayscale conversion enhances the soft focus creating a very empyrean effect. This image compares favorably with some of the more classical romantic period painters and in some ways could be considered a homage to their style and technique. An outstanding image that is very unique in this challenge. A standing ovation would be in order for submitting such an excellant image.

I guess this would be the main dish. Or is it dessert?
