Post Challenge:Thanks for the votes comments and fav's. A new PB for me! This hung above 7 most of the challenge and dropped below the last day and a half. For a minute there I thought it might ribbon. Tough competition

Hey there from the Critique Club

First of all, congrats on a new personal best. This one was well deserved.

My thoughts on the image: I love it. These form-type nudes are absolutely among my favorites. The clarity and sharpness you captured here make this a very dramatic and strong image when paired with the lighting you chose. Well seen and very well executed.

My ideas for improvement: Perhaps the only thing that I would have shot for is a bit deeper depth of field. I'd also like to see the right breast and nipple in crisp focus as well.

Where I would have/did score this entry: Had I voted in the challenge, this would have been one of the few 9s or 10s I would have handed out. Congrats again on a new personal best, as well as a well-deserved top 5 finish.

Thank you for the opportunity to provide a critique on your entry,
Eric

I would have cropped tighter at the bottom, maybe work this into a square crop. The clarity, lighting and play with the water droplets is stunning. /8

I couldn't decide if this was nurse or if you were referring to breast feeding. Seeing a portion of the neck was disturbing.

You drunk her dry - huh? Guess there's always some sweat to lick ;):)

Very nice. Great lighting with a nice effect off the water droplets. I think it would be a small improvement though to have less prominence to the ribcage below the left breast. Perhaps a little lower camera angle or a little less arch in the back.

Not bad, I like the water droplets. I do have a feeling I personally would have liked it better in b/w though.

I think this is the best of the challenge and should be in the top 3. The lighting was perfect. (10)

Your pping on this shot is quite good indeed! I do question if the amount of sweat/water beads is too much or not ........ like the shadows and the tonal range but think if you included more of the person the composition would be stronger.

This is a nurse's uniform? Must be one of those private hospitals. 7

Lucky you! I didn't get this kind of nurse! I like the sweat beads and perky nipples.

The abstractness of this is beautiful. I love the way the form and the shadow play interact and blend to black. You've chosen a nice crop for this as well. Very nicely done!

Beautiful form. I find these types of shots usually look better in a landscape crop.
