Interesting. With a little more light, the photo without the light bar would have been pretty good by itself. The light bar could have ended up gimmicky, but the way it was integrated gives depth to what would otherwise be a relatively vanilla nude photo.
Finally, one of these photos where someone took the time and care to hide the cord. I've seen other photos like this using the flourescent bulbs, but this one stands out for its high quality. Nice job!
