    Default Pensive nude

    Not a bird, but still a pretty chick.

    I have posted 3 other images taken with this young lady. Each image only got 2 comments, but total views are over 1500.
    If you think I am hopess, and that I should try feathered birds please tell me. Of course suggestions for improvement
    would also be most welcome.

    Not hopeless at all Bob!
    I like your gentle treatment, the pensive pose and the background and color tone.
    At first I thought maybe trim a whisker off the right hand side, but after several looks decided I was wrong
    I think probably people on this forum are just not used to nudes here, which is a pity really. I have never taken any myself, but can certainly appreciate good work, and hope you keep showing what you like.
    Cheers,
    Don

    I have never taken any nude photos(not for lack of trying!) so I don't feel qualified to critique
    but if I may make one point about this portrait -FWIW I find the spread between her index finger and
    the rest of her fingers on her left hand very distracting - Believe it or not that was the first thing
    that drew my eye on first viewing -

    The last time I was with a nude beautiful woman was my wedding night. I think I was a nervous then as when I did this shoot. Thanks for pointing out the finger problem, I totally missed that.

    Love the rendering, a very classical photo.
    The fingers are a little bothersome, but I didn't see them at first.

    keep on going!

    I don't mind the fingers at all. To me they bring just a little bit of life to the image, quirky even but gently subtle.
    just as well we are all different....
