Photographer's Request for Critique

If snow be white...why then her breasts are dun

The scan on this image is not great - apologies - but experimenting with shutter speeds, shadows and bodies. What do you think?

I really like this shot. Finally an original nude. I like both the shapes and colors. Great work !!

Gorgeous but bad scan

The photo itself looks gorgeous but there's too much posterization from what could be a bad scan.

and yet, by heaven, I think this shot as rare,
as any yet belied by false compare.

...I don't normally like nudes

Aesthetics 7, Originality 7

Best thing I ever saw on this otherwise lame site.

What is it?

Thanks for all your comments - really motivates me to go and do some more! It's a breast and arm haunching over a leg....

Who is it !

Tempting! One of my absolute favorites, both that is..and both so near my philangies I couldn't resist withall. We know the photographer but for those equally charmed by the reference...

My mistress' eyes are nothing like the sun; Coral is far more red than her lips' red;

If snow be white, why then her breasts are dun; If hairs be wires, black wires grow on her head.

I have seen roses damask'd, red and white, But no such roses see I in her cheeks,

And in some perfumes is there more delight Than in the breath that from my mistress reeks.

I love to hear her speak, yet well I know That music hath a far more pleasing sound;

I grant I never saw a goddess go, My mistress when she walks treads on the ground.

And yet, by heaven, I think my love as rare As any she belied with false compare.

I don't bother viewing most nudes as they too often are as t&a goes and nothing more. This nude however is one of the better ones I've seen. Nice work!

Simply elegant. What did you do for lighting?
