    Bigger here


    I have not submitted a photo for some time due to the loss of my computer and Photoshop CS3, this was merely an exparament with a crappy photo editer on the computer I have here at work. When I have my computer back I will prolly go through and reprocess this concept using one of the better composed images I took during this set with Photoshop CS3 so...

    What would you say if I told you that was a man in women's undergarments?......

    It's not but what if it was?

    You should be looking at a little more than a hiney when viewing images marked as NSFW, Arousal is not always the intended purpose.

    This would be much better as a nude. Lighting and pose is very good though.

    I agree. This was a bit of an impromptu shot, I was not exactly prepared for it, especially after taking several nudes the night before an all of them not coming out right I was not expecting to take this shot until I saw her laying there.

    I like the pose, but I agree that it would be better as a nude (not just because I want to see skin, the clothes disrupt the natural curves and make it unappealing). Good lighting as well, you should reshoot if you get the chance.

    very true.

    if you take a look at his testosterone fueled comments in threads with females, you'll see a lot of the word "hot". :lol:

    the lighting on this is great battou.
    well done.

    Love the composition... the organic line from lower left to upper right. The lighting and exposure are solid. Like others have said, the clothing disrupts the curves of the body and are a distraction from the composition, but you know that. I wish the foot weren't so crowded and slightly clipped by the edge of the fram in the lower left.

    Very nice shot!

    Edited to add: I'm not sure about the title... "Alone" seems to convey lonliness and despair... this shot seems more peaceful and languid than that.

    Here's hoping you get as effective CC on your own images than you give to others.

    I knew there was a reason I have him on my ignore list.

    As to the picture, I agree about the nude being better for curves/lines. You could also work with the lighting and shadows to hide anything too revealling which would help keep it artsy.

    In looking at the pic again, it seems like the genital area is already in shadow and would be classily obscured. I completely agree, however, that classy and artistic in this case would be best served by avoiding being explicit and overly revealing.
