Another great work from you both.

I have seen many naked women on track photos and this is the first one to really stand out and grab my attention.

The model is stunning wherever she is but what makes this so great for me is that even without her, it is a very interesting image.

I like the lines disappearing into the distance combined with the interesting poles at an angle. My eye moves around the image and finds interesting details to consider as well as beauty in form and composition.

The only aspect I am not sure contributes to the image is the darker band of cloud at the top. The contrast draws my eye to it but I find that distracting from the main picture. I think it very slightly unbalances the overall picture.

I love the way the models left arm and hand mimics the shape of her body and the way her back reflects light onto her right arm bringing that side of her body into relief.

I love the vertical square on aspect of the models upper body which is in sympathy with the straight rails and in opposition to the angle of the poles.

Finally I think the reflection of the light down the middle of the track is really effective.

As I said great work - keep it up.

Great photo, I love the model walkning with the perspective of the rails. great.

Please dont consider this an offense: I think the beautifully untouched lady could be left out. she does a really nice job of not caring and by that blending in nicely into this picture of vastly opposing contents with the straight down railway the rugged landscape and the completely strange land lines...but it would have already been a great picture form the motive itself :)

This works so much better in black and white. The Goddess of all creation has returned. She doesn't look happy at what she's seeing. But she does have the power...

The perfect lines and shape transform the model into archetypal Aphrodite. The confident poise and stride contrast with her delicate skin, thin arms and legs. Power lines careen from the force of her presence. The railroad tracks stretching to infinity and the lack of modern elements lend a sense of timelessness. The hand placement is excellent with her left hand seeming to lightly caress the bushes in the background. The only possible improvement I might suggest is to increase the contrast of the clouds to increase depth and add even more drama to a photo that's already in the "Oh-my-God" category :bow:
alfred-georg Featured By Owner Apr 24, 2011   Photographer
thanks, increase some contrast would mean to loose some details in the highlights
Phaedris Featured By Owner Apr 24, 2011
That might not be such a bad effect, would make it even more surreal :idea:

Normally I'd be all about the black and white but I like the color version the model posted better. I commented over there but I just wanted to say it to you as well. I love this photo... the mood you captured, the way you made the model look like a walking goddess, the depth, everything about it. It's the best art nude I've seen on this site in over a year... just when I was about to give up hope for DA! I doff my cap to you sir!

I like the composition and both the setting and the model are just gorgeous. The only thing that bothers me a little about it is the position of her legs, it seems quite unnatural to me, and she almost seems as though she's not really part of the photo from her ankles up, like she's been photoshopped in (which I know she hasn't! it must just be something to do with the light). Really good work though, again, gorgeous =]
HitoshiHalfbreed Featured By Owner Apr 17, 2011  Student Photographer
I have seen both the color version (which the model posted) and the black and white. Regarding the composition, I feel like the color one is more fitting for the title and the color gives it a more magical feel rather than a mystical or gothic one. Both photos though are indeed very flattering for the model and are very respectful of the female form. All together this is a wonderful photograph.

I have to say I am very envious of your skill. ;)
wonhyo Featured By Owner Apr 17, 2011
I looked at the color version of this shot (which is wonderful in its own right), and I must say that I think this one is more effective. Yet I'm not sure which one I "like" better because the effect is so very different in the two of them. This one highlights the composition -- the "theme" of the piece is the convergence of lines and angles – into a delta of potential. It would be too predictable (and tasteless) to have the convergence of the vanishing point of the rail lines lead to the model's pubis, so that is slightly high and off-center. What happens is that the inorganic rail lines and the leaning telephone poles give way to the empty space between the model’s thighs – it is made of light, it’s a straight vertical that leads to the figurative fertile delta (of Venus) in her pubis, which is where the lines on her body also converge. This is a wonderful thematic composition that makes an incredible use of the human body as part of its “story.”
I can see why the model might like the color version better, since in that one, the contrast in coloration and the textures make her an almost surreal component of the landscape. She and the sky are competing for attention, and so she is both distraction and attraction. The more transcendent message presented in the b/w and the geometry is not the story in the color version.
Thank you!

I see where you where going with this B&W but i feel that the color one gives it more feeling to it.

This is simply wonderful! I can't decide whether I like the colour or B&W image better. I guess I'll just have to keep looking at them until I figure it out....
