  • Hannah and the wall

    Great lighting and lovely looking model, but I do agree with the comment about her being very thin, but I'm sure that's her natural body shape.

  • Foxy Lady Part 2 (Showing Off)

    Part 1 was good, part 2 is much better.

    Love this totally

  • Foxy Lady

    Love this shot, and has been said above her personality really does come through in the picture, with a hint of naughtiness thrown in.

    I also like the way the pose shows off her curves and fits with the knickerless flash and the cheeky expression, simple but effective.

    Well done

    Very nice John, for me I would have lost the ring, but I've never been a fan of jewellery of any sort anyway, but it really does not detract from the picture.

    Love it

    This is almost there IMO, its a great bodyscape but for me her left leg should be flat, by doing so it would have given a better shape to her hips and also given the picture a bit of symmetry.

    I appreciate it was probably done this way to aid modesty, but if her legs were tightly closed there would not be a problem.

    It is still a superb image and well worth a vote

    Absolutely beautiful bodyscape.

    Love the texture as it was obviously slightly cold but above all the almost IR effect with the very pale skin and black background.

    And of course the fabulous model.

    Well done

    Excellent light and the curtain works well.

    Could not agree more

    I've been photographing women for over 20 years and I would NEVER get bored with it - Nature's ultimate art, to be bored with 'lady bits' is the same as being bored with life IMO.

    But each to his / her own I suppose.

    Lovely shot and Rebecca is stunning

  • Sublime

    A bit more description would help - looks like an IR effect, if so it's well done, but Sami is the real star and a real beauty.

    Really like it.

    Great description, simple un-assumed beauty and not pointless at all.

    Love it.

    When these shots work they work well - and this has worked well.

  • Determined!

    I have long been a big fan of the IR effect and have played about with it myself in my film days, can work really well with Nude / Glamour as the skin comes out as snow white, eyes are pitch black.

    John, I take it this IR effect was added in the editing stage?

    Really like it.

    Love it, the mood, light and expression of Pirate_Maiden come together to make a great picture.

    Very descriptive title - and a fine example too, love it

  • Perfection in simplicity

    You have hit this one perfectly and let your model do the talking so to speak, absolutely perfect, no necklaces, rings or other jewellery.

    The background is simple and unassuming, the lighting is fairly even and soft but is focused where it needs to be and that is on your model.

    The model herself is perfectly proportioned, her stance and expression is confident but not aggressive with the frontal pose, and above all she is stunningly beautiful.

    I feel too often than some photographers use props and jewellery and locations in order to make things interesting in their pictures, and while they have their place there is no point in having a beautiful model and trying to better what she can offer with props

    This picture just so hits the spot in my opinion, completely love it

    It would be nice to know the young ladys name?

  • Standing Tall

    Gets my vote too - not much to not like, but i like the 'this is me' attitude take me or leave me.

    I always finish off my shoots with a shot like this

  • Something from the archives

    If I found something like this in my archive I would be extremely happy.

    Nice one.

  • ZOE - 2

    In my opinion the hat is excess to requirements here, Zoe is a good enough subject on her own you don't need anything else.

    Lovely picture of a stunning young woman, and I'm pleased you have left it as the colour image too.

    Really like it, and I hope its not the last of this lovely young lady.

  • High key muse.

    The thumbnail really stands out and the picture also does not disappoint.

    The model's expression shows a vulnerability which couples well with the high viewpoint, and you have captured the model's shape very well.

    If I had to change a couple of things they would be to loose the chain around her neck as it adds nothing to such an image, but also if you could have done would be to move slightly back so that her knee was not so close to the edge to the picture.

    But this is being niggley and its certainly a fine image.

    Well done to you both

    This is really very good and should have received a lot more attention IMO
    • 25 Jan 2015 10:30AM
  • ZOE - 3

    really like this, not a big fan of hats (or any props for that matter), but woks quite well, and Zoe certainly is a very attractive young woman.

  • natural light from the north window.. warm and liberating

    Completely stunning young woman, love the pose as and the high POV, not sure about your reflection in the mirror as for me its a bit of a Faux Pas, but I would not have noticed it if dudler did not point it out as my attention is where it should be on your completely gorgeous model.
