This image is one of the most deeply emotional figure images that I have seen. In all of it's details, it is clear that a lot of thought and care, from both the photographer and the model, went into setting up the shot to reflect a truly bleak and somber emotional state.

Whle the model might be unclothed, the entire focus of the picture is on her face and her expression. She did a good job with her simple expression and distant look...that she really was focused on a painful memory or experience.

The pose, the angle of the shot, and the sharp focus on the model's face in comparison with the rest of her figure all work to draw the viewer's attention to the somber mood and whatever emotional pain she is dealing with at the moment. The color and shading complete the image and contribute to the somber message of this artwork.

A sad and melancholy portrait, that captures a special moment in life.

Photos like this are the ones that humbly captures one's heart.

Although designed to emphasize different parts of it, to me it really is focusing on the entirety of this photo. The hand, the eyes, that earring, the feigned smile, the curvatures, the lace, the Dimples of Venus.

Everything compliments each other in a way that they envelope this picture to create somewhat of a soul for it -- and I felt it, and even the tiniest part of it made its way through mine.

This photo renders me heartbroken, but inspires to adore more, to love, even, all at the same time.

A true paradox.

I hear the motor of the camera clicking and no time in preparing, this is just what it is, what are you thinking. What ever it was you need to listen to it. To me it clearly shows a part in time, although I haven't gone through all of your gallery yet, that shows a part of you I haven't seen so far through and being nude has nothing to do with what your feeling, your comfortable that way, that says alot. As one who comes across this shot of you I wonder what is this beautiful woman feeling at that moment, she's giving me, whether it's from the colours and the look working together a genuine sincerity that wasn't prepared for before the camera caught that moment as I see it!

Similar feelings to most. You've managed to make/hold a very interesting pose in the way you've wrapped your arms up and the tilt of your head. Nice composition, nice colors and details down to the selection of decorative but fading sheets and the fuzzy ear ring.

I like it. She seems to be a beautiful lady with a fabulous figure and the pose showing off many of her girly curves without being explicit add to the mood of her lost in thought almost sorrowful expression. I love that it is nearly monochromatic and the way her left shoulder and right hand frame and move the focus to her face. The great use of the aperture settings to control depth of field also add to the effect. A great job of capturing a great subject.
