A very nice photo here. The model seems so sexy and the way she looks its very touchy. The background does the half work, it has the correct color, shape, light and distance. The lighting here seems to be well placed, even the vignette and the low-key aspect of view. The color of the whole photograph is nicely warm and the skin tone improves a lot the photo impact. The only thing thats not perfect here is the originality but in such photos its extremely hard to come up with something thats really new. Good for you and have a nice day.

:iconyori1976:
First and foremost I think this is a mis-cat - should be under emotive portraits and not artistic nude, as the impact of this image lies not in the clothe-less figure, but in the face - there is something in the expression, combined with the excellent light and detail that gives this image an impact that none of the others in this shoot have. I think the main impact comes from a certain wildness, which the the "unstyled" style of the hair helps reinforce and I am not sure the impact would be diminished if she had clothes - maybe, with the right clothes it would have been stronger. I think the main reason this image is so strong (apart from the model's amazing beauty!) is that although the body position, and to some extent the hair suggest a little shyness, the eyes are defiant and fiery - I would say even haunted and haunting!
Technichally speaking I think forcus, DOF and lighting, as well as choice of location (BG) are perfect, or near perfect, allowing the full impact of the moment to be conveyed by the image!
(BTW - I looked up close at the head in the downloaded image, and I don't think you should allow download of the full resolution image - it could get abused, causing a lot of distress to both you and the model).
Excellent work!!!

Sorry to hear that you were being given grief over this image, which, by the way, I wonder if this really has to be flagged as being "mature." Yes, she's nude (or at least appears to be), but all that could not legally be shown in public is concealed.

Really, the only things amiss here are

1. The logo over the image, but with all of the image theft online, perhaps this seemed necessary.
2. The banality of my words of praise. I'm going to start reading more artistic criticism, in the hope of having something more interesting to say than ...

A beautiful woman, in a pose that conveys so much feeling, seen in a wonderfully composed image.

"She's of GERMAN + PAKISTAN Bloodline"

Really? Somebody has an issue with her being multi-ethnic? I wonder if they know which century they're in. Again, hope the few crazies you heard from didn't get you down. Your work is seeing a lot of respect.

This is what nudes sould look like. Focus on the model and her beautiful body, not trying to put her into puerely sexual context and simply a great shot. I wish I could see more like this. Human body - femal body - is incredible and beautiful in it's own right.

:) Yep, many people would think she is underage.  All you gotta do is look as the  Asians and you would think they are underage only to learn they are in their 20s, even 30s :)
