Ah, a rare sight in combination with the word sexy. Too often I have the feeling, that people who take nude photos have the urge to throw in the word "sexy" when deep down in their core the know it's anything but. Brassy comes to mind, or vulgar or tasteless.

But this here is very sexy. And done in style. Very nice. I like the light and the whiteness of it. Everything is almost blending out into whiteness, but all the contours are still there. The sharpness is pretty amazing. What lens did you use, what camera?

Also I like the artistic approach to the nudeness in this photo. She is nude, and she doesn't hide it. I don't have to ask myself, why did she walk nude in front of the camera, if she doesn't want to show anything? Yet, I don't get her nudeness shoved down my throat either. This is something I could hang up on a wall :-)

The girl is a bit darker than the couch or the wall, making her stand out. And she is just super. She has a very strong but calm presence. The face is so perfectly cut, it's almost aristocratic. The long hair is nice. The dark eyes look right out of my display. Her body is well toned, she must be doing ballet?
What do you think?

For me Artistic nude means it should be artistic. That is what you find here. This is very well composed; the model is in a fantastic position and posed extreamly well for this shot. I love the combination of props for the shoot with a light wall, light hardwoods, and white couch. The photographer did a fantastic job with the choice of B&W style to use helping to blend it all together giving it a neat even tone.
This lighting is perfect with the only shadowing I notice is under the couch itself. It also lends to the nice soft look to the image in general.
In the case of the model, she is perfect for this shot. She is both beautiful and in fantastic shape and I simply love the long hair. I know this pose is not as simple as plopping yourself on a chair and waiting for your picture to be taken. Keeping on her toes like this I assume was for quite a while looking for just the right angle and pose to get this one. Nice neutral look on her face and as a side not has amazing eyes even in a B&W.
Another side note she kind of looks like Jane Seymour.

It occurs to me, that "Clad in Grace" should be a good title.

I often browse different profiles and I favor photos and then later I go back and try to figure out why I gave a fave!
When I came back to this picture, there was no need to justify my fave......
this is true artistic nude and the pose is brilliant!
This is obvious the model and photographer work well together...
my hat is off to both for a job well done
thanx for sharing!
