Wow. She's a pretty model, no doubt, but that pose makes me think that an exotic new species of feline was just discovered. Very creative.

Awesome shot and expression!

i felt like if her mind was somewhere else and you caught her off guard, there is a kind of surprise on her face.
Vedak Featured By Owner May 8, 2011
Strange pose, I like it!
Lurking-Weirdo Featured By Owner May 8, 2011
I'd imagine most people couldn't hold this pose, she look's amazing.

What a beautiful photo!

Regarding the model's pose, which was discussed below, I am not sure whether it is relevant if she could physically jump from that position. Quite often realism has to be sacrificed for artistic purposes. The pose of the model's body reminds me of a cat, so it works for me. I am not sure her expression is predatory or on the alert enough, though. That would have made the already great photo even better.

Aside from that, the composition is very good. I like the fact that the centre of attention is not too obvious. I find my attention attracted to details all over the image - the messy hair, her hands which remind me of paws, the beautiful lines and curves all over, as well as the more intimate area, shown in a provocative, yet subtle manner. But inevitably my eyes end up resting on her face (where the focus leads as well). Which again reminds me of my only note - I do not think the model's expression matches her pose.
But then again, I may be approaching the image with the wrong anticipation. Actually, my second association, after a cat, is a rabbit. In which case, her a bit surprised look fits nicely. This notion is enhanced by another association I made earlier. Immediately I liked how her hands are a bit blurred, as if they were caught while still moving. It makes it seem as if she was doing something else, got distracted and now she is turning her attention in the direction of the disturber. Namely the viewer. Brilliant.
I do not know if you meant any of this when you took the photo, but what is important is the very fact that a seemingly simple photo actually provokes me to come up with such interpretations. Not a lot of nude photos do that.

I just realized I hadn't said anything about the lighting, which is usually the first thing I comment on and pay attention to in a studio nude photo. The human body can produce magnificent shadows, and that is what most photographers exploit. So it nice to see a studio photo which has so many other things to attract the attention with. The shadows here do not accentuate the model's beautiful body, but rather the atmosphere of the whole photo. The lighting is somewhat... messy - the light is soft, but there are still some harder lines here and there, and there is a mix of bright and dark areas, deep and shallow shades. All this goes well with the messy hair and the selective focus.
The only thing I do not like is the light on her left foot. It is too bright, and I find it distracting, it does not fit with the softer tones of the rest of the body.

And once again, a beautiful photo!

Thanks for the interesting comment
This is one of several hundred snapshots taken one hour shooting. The woman is constantly changing and flowed from one pose to another. What is perhaps important - it is not a model, and this is her first shot in the nude.
I did not manage to watch some of the technical stuff. This reduces the energy survey.
Sorry for my bad English:)

Это один из нескольких сотен фотокадров, сделанных примерно за один час съёмки. Женщина непрерывно менялась и перетекала из одной позы в другую. Что наверное важно - она не модель, и это её первая съёмка в жанре НЮ.
Я не успевал следить за некоторыми техническими мелочами. Это снижает энергетику съёмки.
Kemendil Featured By Owner May 22, 2011  Hobbyist Photographer
Пожалуйста. :)

It's interesting to know she is not a professional model and that was her first nude photo shoot, I wouldn't have guessed it. :)
Once again, a great photo! Will you be submitting any other photos from the same series?
deltariverratt Featured By Owner May 8, 2011  Hobbyist Photographer
Wow, beautiful, sexy, and flexible. Not to mention a great sense of balance.
AndrewAlewine Featured By Owner May 8, 2011  Student Interface Designer
Interesting pose. It looks like your right leg is pasted onto your body like a model. I'm sorry if this sounds awkward, It's 12am and I'm drunk
realizedesignsjason Featured By Owner May 7, 2011  Professional Interface Designer
Interesting shot!
Kuroi-Rabbit Featured By Owner May 7, 2011  Student Digital Artist
Beautiful picture, very unique and I love the static pose and the contrast of the very serene and calm expression on the models face. Also the shadows add great depth. I don't agree with some of the others.. I think the title fits this perfectly, both metaphorically and fundamentally. Great work :D
Self-Epidemic Featured By Owner May 7, 2011  Professional Digital Artist
I love how timid her hands feel
hyneige Featured By Owner May 7, 2011  Hobbyist General Artist
Beautiful pose! Ready to jump in her own world, behind some of these mysterious mirrors in parallel of time or of one somewhere else! Older Alice but who kept this desire to return to the Wonderland! :+favlove:
Nuda1981 Featured By Owner May 7, 2011
A fantastic pose, great capture, impeccable processing. I love it. Like most of your work.
PotatoOni Featured By Owner May 7, 2011  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
Well, this doesn't look like she wants to leap.

But it is an very interesting pose.
I bet this pose hurts.
photoport Featured By Owner May 7, 2011  Professional Photographer
She is actively involved in yoga, and this attitude is one of the most comfortable, where she was sitting behind the shooting. There have been more than a hundred for two hours shooting.
Of course, she was not going to jump. But this power was much stronger than jumping:)
TreeClimber Featured By Owner May 7, 2011  Professional Traditional Artist
I can agree, that pose is rather comfy, and I am not in yoga XD just naturally flexible :p
EmorificMeanieface Featured By Owner May 7, 2011   Writer
I think the title is misleading. She doesn't AT ALL look 'ready to jump' so much as she just struck a pose and waited for a camera click. I don't think she put enough meaning into the photo... or if she did, it wasn't really captured.
sagalicious Featured By Owner May 7, 2011  Hobbyist Artist
You just said what I wanted to say....
btw. I can see her tonsils...
photoport Featured By Owner May 7, 2011  Professional Photographer
you're just a pessimist with a superficial perception of the world:)
EmorificMeanieface Featured By Owner May 7, 2011   Writer
No, actually. But I'm not going to bother with arguing. I gave my opinion, and you can take it or leave it or delete it. :)
psymansays Featured By Owner May 7, 2011
Or, they're not, and you're "just" a photographer who doesn't like real critiques?

No one in that position could actually leap.
TreeClimber Featured By Owner May 7, 2011  Professional Traditional Artist
and yes, people in that position CAN leap, just because you can't get into that pose, does not mean it is impossible to leap from. I have done it myself, long before this photo was shot.
hehpoof Featured By Owner May 7, 2011
Is it a real critique to pay more attention to the title than to the photo? EmorificMeaniface's opinion that there's not enough feeling from the model might be a valid critique, but to fault a photo based on its title is silly.
awcomicart Featured By Owner May 7, 2011  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
awesome pose!
GiovyLoCa Featured By Owner May 7, 2011  Professional General Artist
This is beautyful!
May I ask if I can use it as reference for a drawing in the future? :blush:
Of course I'd give credits to you. :)
japanman141 Featured By Owner May 7, 2011  Hobbyist General Artist
This is really nice. The one thing that makes it perfect is how flawless that pose looks. no edginess to it. Im not much of a descriptive critque. But great work.
3feathers Featured By Owner May 7, 2011  Professional Photographer
Wow, what a cool shot and a fabulous pose. I love your low camera angle - you seem to have come in at the most perfect angle for her and it creates this wonderful feel of intimacy for me. I love these open and unapologetic kinds of nudes. I love that you have chosen an image in which vulva is an integral and natural part of everything else that's going on. This is easily one of my favorites in your collection. Brilliant and beautiful work!
BrianMPhotography Featured By Owner May 7, 2011  Professional Photographer
Lovely Image... this model has incredible body lines!
