I did a Shibari style photoshoot a few months back and I've been trying to figure out which of the shots from the set are the strongest. I'd love to get some outside feedback on which one should go into my portfolio:

I liked the third one in the set the most. Thought it was the most flattering.

1 and 3 are the best
2 is different - don't know if I like it or not
4 is more Fetlife approved, than MM approved
5 is not a favorite.

Ok I was hoping to salvage something from the shoot because I really did enjoy it. I will have to organize another one and get some better shots with him. Thanks for the input everyone!

+1 with qualifier about #3

3 has no texture in the shadows, so all rope is blended into a black blob, but the expression matches the loosely tied rope.

So #1, rope work is much nicer than in other images.

If I HAD to pick one I guess it would be #2. But I think none of them showcase you very well. And the last one is just down right tacky looking. The first one your legs look awful from the processing. third one is to cutesy for the ropes and the 4th one makes you look big and there is a weird shadow between your legs that looks like something that shouldn't be there.
