Like the pose and the angles of the body but I feel that the grain is too heavy for the picture.

Nice composition. Grainy, yes, but I don't think that destroys the elegance.

excellent love the grain - perhaps just either remove curtain or close it.

Excellent shot. Don't mind the grain at all, I think it works well here. I just would have liked to have seen a different background, but oh well - it's a great shot as it is.

Potentially a superb shot, the grain dose not help, but you have a fantastis model to work with, very well done, look forward to more, missed all your work but I will look out for it in the future.
A great pose with good lighting, click

I absolutley love this!!

Thank you so much for your comment! Smile It was actually embarrassingly easy; just chose a 'diffuse glow' filter and adjusted the graininess, glow- and clear amount Smile childishly easy, eh? Smile

what a beautiful photo.
excellent form, and shape.

very nice form. lovely shot

Sorry and honestly to say that the pose is not good enough the person looks like she have three legs, also about the grain effect it seems that the backround is not well exposed so the grain had not come out well. It looks that overal exposure is a bit under because when you are dealing with this high contrast effect all you need to do compensate in the film develope or compensate with a reflector while you are taken this shot. It will be easly be done because you have a good source of lighting there. It's a law to understand that b/w had to be exposed to the shadows and colour is the opposit to the high lights.

My favorite of the bunch, simply stunning, very good job!

Dont agree with Mario. To photograph dancers is so elegant and graceful. I wish the exposure was a bit better, but the pose and energy in her body is fantastic.
Love it.
Stunning & I like!

Thanks for your comments.

This is stunning. Joceline is graceful as she is beautiful. I adore the grainy effect of this image.
12 Aug 2010 9:58AM
Dancers do it best. This use of natural light complements the image and personally I like the grain.
Very good picture............
Nice model!
Some disagree as to if it is a nice pose. Maybe a contortion more like, but a nice one indeed.

A beautiful image... great pose and lighting... but have to agree with Roy regarding the amount of grain, a bit less would improve it in my opinion.

I really love the grainy texture and the pose!!! The texture makes it seem so old and priceless. Absolutely beautiful.

Gee, what can I say that hasn't already been said above?! Superb image, although I'm not decided on the grain - I'd loved to have seen more detail in both her face and the musculature. But it does add a very dream-like quality, on the other hand! Oh well ... I'll just say that the title says it all for me really - best advice I've heard for a while. Grin
Fabulous shot of this subject. The grain really works and gives that slightly vintage appearance. She fills the frame and the square crop works brilliantly here. Very well crafted indeed!
Kindest regards
