Shadowing Nudity by lorrainemd Shadowing Nudity by lorrainemd
I am bad for submitting this...but there is something about it i really like.

grain intentional
I often try to reduce form into into basic elements and this is an interesting thing to do with nudes.
Taken in a hotel room in NYC. Light source above bed frame, which created the contrasty shadows.

I love when people see things I do not in my images....justthorne [link] said thiis looks like she is golly, I think it does!

I saw the thumbnail for this, and my first thought was 'mermaid.'

Very beautiful.

I am amazed at your ability to catch such disparate images as your strong industrial work and these very subtle human photos. Very good.
twix1985 Featured By Owner Sep 28, 2004
even though the picture is of a (might I add, very hot) nude woman that ... looks inviting, to say the least...
the colors, the shadows... and the fact that it was taken in a NYC hotel room makes it feel so lonely, isolate, cold...
I feel a more 'contrast in feelings' rather than anything else when I look at this photograph.
great work.

Amazing curves color and lighting :clap:

those shadows really rock. color is cold, wich fits the image kinda perfectly. contrast is sort of amazing. you really know photography (and editing).
ArtByMalloryMorsa Featured By Owner Mar 20, 2004
I agree- the curve in the legs makes ths what it is. I also like the many shadows on the walls comming from the hands. Why would you be bad for posting this? I think it's amazing! :+fav:

Great pic !!!
strnglitlgrl Featured By Owner Jan 11, 2004
ah! skiing! THAT'S what's so familiar about her posture.

i wish dA would friggin' find a way to tell you something is ALREADY on your favorites list so you don't "add" it again, but then you're really removing it, so then you DO have to add it again...:steaming:
letmetouchit Featured By Owner Jan 9, 2004
well..i think everyone else pretty much covered it, but good stuff deserves positive reinforcement, so great job, the lighting and the pose in particular strike me as awesome.

Michelano Featured By Owner Nov 7, 2003
damn hot on the one side and damn cool on the other, because of the colors!

awesome light on this one...

My favorite part on this shot is the way one can see your spine...

very strange
specially the pose
Mike Featured By Owner Sep 17, 2003
I really like the pose, it caught my eye in the favorites recomendations list... because of the style of shot... really like the color as well, but the pose is quite excellent.


hermes88 Featured By Owner Aug 27, 2003
This really is amazing. Everything about it--The lighting, shadows, body expression, the sheets, awesome. +fav
videotape Featured By Owner Aug 26, 2003
amazing, the shadow play here and the way the figure itself has been reduced to simple but beautiful elements. the visible spinal texture, the sleek hair and the overall slightly awkward curve of her body. the way she rests in such a voluptuous and pliable surface makes for an intriguing contrast with the hard wall as a background.
setarcos Featured By Owner Aug 15, 2003
my first thought when looking at this picture was that she was riding on the clouds.


great shot!

nasigoreng Featured By Owner Jun 17, 2003
another stunning pose from you...

the shadow is superb
phant0m Featured By Owner Jun 12, 2003   Photographer
Haven't read all the comments - this may have been said already...

I like "all the arms " created by the shadows - looks like there are ghostly arms reaching out to take her to their lair... things there ;) (Wink) !

LOVE the tattoo !!!!!!!!!

Awesome picture - and blue... well, that's just a bonus !

marlasinger Featured By Owner Jun 11, 2003
well im not gonna read everything everyone else said but im sure you can imagine just what i think it looks like.
well.....just like what she's doing. so there.
so there what? does that make me perverted?
i dont care. NYWYS........nice "ass" shot! yeah!
laydowntwilight Featured By Owner Jun 11, 2003
catatonicly beautifully, it does look like a mermaid, the wavey sheet effect really adds to that, and the blue, like water. and classy nudeity as opposed to trash Thumbs Up
ayehli Featured By Owner Jun 10, 2003  Professional Photographer

In my opinion, one of your best. I'm not certain about the merit of the soft cushioned floor-- but I'm having a hard time imagining the shot without it.

Good work.

Great pose and I love the way the shadows run from the hands, beautiful.
fasa Featured By Owner Jun 9, 2003   Interface Designer
the shadows and colors are so great. i love the pose as well. The placement of pillows there was a perfect idea. Makes me sleeeeeepy :) (Smile)
starblind Featured By Owner Jun 8, 2003
Hmm, yeah, it does look a bit like skiing! I quite like this.. bringing something new to the genre with an unusual pose and even more unusual lighting! Well done!

When you are good you are very good but when you are bad you are better.

Its a good shot, no shame there. The blue is lovely and the shadows cool

i probably won't say anything new beaucous everything was said abowe;) (Wink)
it's great picture but you know it allready;) (Wink)
gabrielxxx Featured By Owner Jun 3, 2003
At first glance I thought she looked like a mermaid.
Funny what the eye will do with thumbnail views, eh?
:) (Smile)
Good pic.
atila Featured By Owner Jun 3, 2003
I love the pose and the light, you have a great eye... i specially like how the lights over her head has left shadows of her arms, leaving a drawing like a fan on the wall

Wonderful photo :-) (Smile)

myheadphones Featured By Owner Jun 3, 2003
hmm i dunno
i really do love the lighting and the contrast and composition and everything technically about it. it really shows some awesome skill

i just dont know if i really like that body pose
it seems so forced... so unnatural
perhaps a necessity to the message? hmm
digitalcrayons Featured By Owner Jun 3, 2003
omg this is amazing.. and thats all i have to say about that
jemau Featured By Owner Jun 3, 2003
light / shadows are amazing.... especially those created by the hand...
2ndzenith Featured By Owner Jun 3, 2003  Hobbyist
ok, another fan of the image!

I love the shadows cast from the arms! Did you try any with completely blacking out her, creating just a silhouette of the female form while leaving the shadows as-is. I think it might be worth a try. I mean it's sensual now, but i think it might be more alluring if it was more suggestive on her form. Great job!!
littlewhitelies Featured By Owner Jun 3, 2003   Photographer
That's so interesting. The first thing I thought of when I saw this in the thumbnail was "is that someone skiing or are they standing on sheets?!" It took me a few seconds to process it. Heh, no wonder justthorne and I get along, we think alike :) (Smile)

Great piece. Love the shadow and the grain.
bossydk Featured By Owner Jun 2, 2003  Hobbyist Photographer
Great and very unusual pose! I like the shadows on the wall and the shadows on her body.

Sooo beautiful
