Just an old photo

Completely forgot about this one

Little bit cheeky this one Andrew ;) I think it's quite an original image even with the apple cliche. The vertical lines of the body vs the horizontal stripes make the composition work for me, even lighting and exposure control make it technically excellent. I'm not quite sure about the square framing, I think I'd prefer portrait with some negative space on the right. Hence the 5 in 5/6.

Thanks... It's not terribly difficult to make it a portrait :-) in fact I made it to square

I think this is a very good piece of OPT-ART. Even in b&w.

The apple...

I nearly missed the apple. Not surprising really. I do like this but I feel an even lower vantage point might have been better.

:-) I usually concentrate on other things when I look at nudes too :-) Cheers

wow... I'm not sure about the apple... but it may be intended as an Eve. Very well made. Socks on the white background are great.
