It's quite different for me but I love the style and the photographer! What do you think?

Not a fan of the post processing, you look great though.

Nice image. I think it shows you off in a flattering way and is good work on your part.

Not great, looks very amateur sadly.

You can do better than this by working with better photographers, on a trade basis.

Even if you get paid for shitty nudes, they're still shitty nudes and aren't doing your portfolio any favours.





Just my $0.02

Nice pose, and a good look at you!  The lighting is very flat, distracts from the photo.

I agree.  I thought it made you look unattractive.

Thanks so much for your responses guys.

The photographer that shot these is actually a very highly regarded photographer here in Australia. He was the Art Director for a major newspaper for over 20 years, went to one of the most sought after photographic schools in the country and has two photography/design degrees and won many photography awards, including the AIPP's (Australian Institute of Professional Photography) Student of the Year.

I really appreciate your thoughts though, it's been interesting and very surprising to see what everyone else has thought.

Also, as a side note - how do you delete a comment on one of your photos? I can't seem to find anything.

Interesting to know, but it doesn't make the photo any better.  Many photographers (and artists) may have many degrees, and many, many years of experience, and many, many, awards, and can still do crappy work.  This photo is a prime example of that.

Thanks guys.

I've removed the shot from my folio.

I know the lighting is the same but do you like this shot any better -

It's been quite well received on DA so far.

Better find a way to link it, because 18+ photos are taboo in the forums.

I'm averse to over-processed photos, and this is one.  It's just too hard to see your lovely figure through all the fussing.  I think you have much better work in your port.  So does the photographer, in his port.
