Either I know who's this is, or it is the highest form of flattery.

Nice shot.

A somewhat familiar concept, but very well executed.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
08/29/2004 11:09:57 PM
Very refreshing shot. I like the muted blue in this photo.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
08/29/2004 10:22:57 AM
Brilliantly funny - a good photo too!
  Photographer found comment helpful.
08/29/2004 08:22:04 AM
This is a nice scene that was tastefully executed. It makes one think well beyond just "nude".
  Photographer found comment helpful.
08/28/2004 11:36:23 PM
Brave! Good photo, very good composition and crop. Good luck!
  Photographer found comment helpful.
08/28/2004 11:54:08 AM
My hands down favorite for this challenge. The lighting is great, and I love the slight pink in the clouds. I love the feeling of energy from the model and the whimsical title. The model's physical condition has the feel of a classical Greek or Roman statue, which lends to the appeal of the image. I really just love the feeling of unrestrained joy. Excellent job. One I'd love to have for my walls. 10

Inspired by //www.dpchallenge.com/image.php?IMAGE_ID=90452 ?

heida shots have a lot more dodge and burn though..

  Photographer found comment helpful.
08/27/2004 08:17:05 PM
LOL You've probably got a ton of comments on this recreation of "Free spirit" by Heida but here is another. Great job. Bonus point for making me laugh.

jumping over the fence into the water woudl be better. Splendid idea

Neat shot

08/26/2004 06:50:21 PM
Simple, raw, beautiful. 10! Is it crude or wrong to say, nice ass? It's very lovely!
  Photographer found comment helpful.
08/26/2004 01:41:19 AM
I really like this shot.. very winsome and gay..(as in happy/free-loving), and beautifully lighted!
  Photographer found comment helpful.
08/25/2004 03:10:03 PM
reminds me of the winner of the freedom challenge. but the light and clouds in this one is even better. Good image but you're up against some tough competition.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
08/25/2004 12:02:17 PM
Humor! Nice colors
  Photographer found comment helpful.
08/25/2004 03:52:30 AM
i like the concept, simplicity works here, greatly composed and the lighting is just perfect.. on of the best image in this challenge
  Photographer found comment helpful.
08/24/2004 11:54:04 PM
LOL!!!!!!!! Pure Genius!
  Photographer found comment helpful.
08/24/2004 08:48:39 PM
I like the composition a lot with the model off center and the clouds in the background are awesom, but the shadows accross his body are distracting and think the image suffers from need of more saturation of color.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
08/24/2004 05:34:33 PM
heida? lol This is great!
  Photographer found comment helpful.
08/24/2004 04:51:14 PM
The toning/lighting +nakedness gives the feeling of a "refreshing" dive. Nice work.

Beautifully composed & executed! Splendid work! 10+

Nice title, hehe :)
  Photographer found comment helpful.
08/24/2004 10:07:53 AM
This reminds me strongly of Heida's recent Free Spirit entry, an image I like very much. I think this would benefit from the inclusion of just a touch of the sand shore, as that one does. I like the fact that the horizon is high within the frame and that the clouds add interest to the sky.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
08/24/2004 08:44:49 AM
LOL, an excellent tribute to heida. This is well done. Good luck [7]
  Photographer found comment helpful.

I really like this 10
  Photographer found comment helpful.
08/24/2004 07:25:52 AM
hehe a common shot -but a good'en!!!! Great tension and moment of capture on the figure. Can't fault this in many ways. A little bit dull as far as definition and light go - but nothing too much that takes away from the moment.

Top ten for sure.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
08/24/2004 05:47:54 AM
Great picture. Very creative! 9
  Photographer found comment helpful.
08/24/2004 05:10:19 AM
Gee this reminds me a lot of Heida's photo minus the garments ... Free Spirit I think! That said, I love this! The pastel colors go just great with the medium colored skin ... the clouds in the back create a very unique horizon .. I have to bump this up a point. I realize I like it more. One tiny improvement - contrast adjustment.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
08/24/2004 03:54:43 AM
I love the negative space here, it's very expressive. Though, colours seem to be a bit flat for me, maybe because of the clouds, I am not sure. If your model would hold his head up, it would be a stunning expression of freedom, this was he looks like being a bit sad, looking down... Always keep in mind what you want to tell people with your photo and try to get the best out of your models to express feelings. Horizont is a bit tilting to the left, I would rotate the photo a bit to the right. Nice idea, it would be worth to improve the technical presentation, too. :-)
  Photographer found comment helpful.
08/24/2004 01:24:27 AM
So simple. So effective. I think maybe the image would speak to me, personally, a little more if there was a female companion joining him. Still, it's a 10 and I love it.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
08/24/2004 01:19:12 AM
As much as I hate looking at other mens asses,. this really is a nice photo. Good luck.

Best of Show. Well done.

08/23/2004 08:08:34 PM
One has to laugh at this very creative title...connected to a cool picture.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
08/23/2004 07:08:01 PM
Great shot! Best yet in this challenge. Composition is perfect for this scene, light colors and even lighting work very nicely. Title is funny as well. Technically super, catching the water action on his feet top it of. Good job!
  Photographer found comment helpful.
08/23/2004 06:47:33 PM
This is great...Heida will be proud! Nice tushie, BTW... and really a well-composed photo. Maybe a touch too overexposed (lol) but works well. I like it! :o)
  Photographer found comment helpful.
08/23/2004 04:35:10 PM
Great shot, looks a little similar to another shot I have seen recently..... but overall this is my favorite of the week. It has a sense of freedom to it and a nice simplicity. Excellent work. Good luck, Todd.

08/23/2004 01:48:06 PM
Would this be Heida mimmicking your own "Free Spirit" show??? I love it!

What a aparkling and free radiance this shines with. Just perfect.

;)

08/23/2004 12:35:29 PM
great shot! Excellent capture of movement. Nice crop. Excellent nude of a male model (I find it's always tougher to do men). 8

08/23/2004 11:55:37 AM
not as good as the orginal but almost, if this is not heida work then somone is making a copy of her work :-) 8

hahaha very funny i'm telling heida
  Photographer found comment helpful.
08/23/2004 10:39:22 AM
Indeed! Great composition, great response to the challenge! The scene seems a little overexposed though. Love it anyway.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
08/23/2004 10:33:41 AM
great idea - but the face should be turned up for more optimism
  Photographer found comment helpful.
08/23/2004 10:08:21 AM
Hmm. Almost the same composition and model action as a recent winner. Looks like it may also have the same slight dsaturization. Nonethe less, it's a great entry - gives a feeling of freedom and playfullness.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
08/23/2004 09:08:53 AM
A great photo. I loved it and gave it a 10, but I have to say it looks the same as the photo that won at Freedom II: //www.dpchallenge.com/image.php?IMAGE_ID=90452. Even the position of the body...
  Photographer found comment helpful.
08/23/2004 06:15:05 AM
You are noughty using Heida's image and title, but nudes and naughtyness go hand in hand.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
08/23/2004 05:30:50 AM
No serious comment here, but boy that title made me laugh, well actually choke on the food I was eating. Funny funny! :P
  Photographer found comment helpful.
08/23/2004 04:15:19 AM
Hahahaha! Awesome job. Is this Heida's pic- if not it's perfect. There's a great tone here- i kinda wish that there were more space on the bottom but otherwise is awesome- I like the blue of the water, very serene.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
08/23/2004 02:44:58 AM
lol, a carbon copy of the pose in Heida's "Free Spirit". You forgot to paint the tattoo on the back though :P

Really good job! (8)
  Photographer found comment helpful.
08/23/2004 01:59:05 AM
hell if the photo wouldn't get you a 10 the title would. freaking brilliant.

P

ps ok, i would have liked a little more contrast - maybe shorten your exposure by 1/3 EV then dodge the subject to make him stand out. composition and thema re awesome.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
08/23/2004 01:49:37 AM
OMG!!!!!! soooooo funnnnnyyyyyy!!!!!! I loved 'free spirit' by heida. This is like the photographic equivalent of the satirical teen spoof movies (Scary movie, Not another teen movie, etc) Excellent title! really really humorously amazing, I love that its not taking itself seriously either (if a photo can do that)... 9
  Photographer found comment helpful.
08/23/2004 01:22:32 AM
A homage to Heida's Freedom entry? Very cute and fun entry. I like it. :)
  Photographer found comment helpful.
08/23/2004 01:18:41 AM
Must say...Well Done! the clarity, crisp colors, the fantastic DOF, the dead on use of the rule of thirds adds balance to an over all great shot...the Title? Yes even the Title 10!
  Photographer found comment helpful.
08/23/2004 12:54:58 AM
heida, the same shot with the girl... interesting... a ribbon winner again.. not sure... in the first 10 to me a9
  Photographer found comment helpful.
08/23/2004 12:37:32 AM
LOL, very nice shot! Nice variation on Heida's "Freedom" entry "Free spirit". Now ya just need to burn it a little for some Icelandic atmosphere! LOL 10

08/23/2004 12:34:47 AM
Nice.

08/23/2004 12:17:50 AM
awesome effort, but not enough dodging and burning...
  Photographer found comment helpful.
08/23/2004 12:15:42 AM
The ultimate form of flattery for Heida, I guess. :)
