Good beginning. It is always a pleasure to try to create nude art with good taste. #1 is a little too flat emotionally and lightwise. #2 has the most potential... I would crop more on the left the the bottom. #3 did not work for me at all. Based on what you were trying to achieve in shot #1, look up Sylvie Blum's work. Hope this helps. If you like, you can look up the "fine art" category in my website and enter the password "buffy".

I like the tension of # 1 and find myself wondering what her actual position was (perhaps leaning off a bed laying face up, or going up in a stomach crunch). I think all 3 work, but probably need some fine tuning, but I can't quite figure out what.

Thanks.

#1 she was leaning back in a chair but her stomach wasnt very strong so she could only hold for a few seconds. The final shot has her laughing and looking at the camera which although is a good shot with more emotion, was not what I wanted.

 

Tri - your work is what I looked at a few months back but that was after the course.

 

Stu - I know what you mean. Let us see if anyone can identify the "je ne sais quoi"

 

Likalar - a landscape is what I was aiming for - maybe more Tuscany than CA :-)

These pictures are a little bit flat IMO, they miss something, epecially # 1 and 3 where I would feel the need of light and shadow

Enrico: Yes, I think I made too much use of the large softbox, so next time I will try more spots.

 

JCB: Actually that is flare from (I guess) the UV/IR filter and the light directed from the side. I actually like the effect.

      The optical and mechanical elements of the lens are in excellent condition, with clear glass and perfectly smooth focusing. The retractable sunshade has some minor damage but that does not interfere with the optical or mechanical operation of the lens, that work superbly.
      The sale also includes an original Leica R-M Adapter ROM, #14642, in new condition, as well as a 60mm Leica Uva filter to use with the lens.
      This lens has an exceptional optical resolution and color rendition.

      Hey all,  was curious about how the technical aspects of the Zeiss Biogon lenses ( 25mm or 28mm ) would match up with the CL + adapter. Im between either of those or the TL 23mm Summicron. Main use cases being travel and street photography.
      The image render from the Zeiss seems almost better than the 23mm but worried that it wont perform as well on the CL vs a dedicated lens. 
      Has anyone used both on a CL or T? 
      Thanks in advance.

      Hi, does somebody own a Leica Summicron-M 1:2/28 Edition "Safari" or has seen real life pictures? I’d love to see additional pictures of the lens except the one official photography that’s spread all over the web.

      I was listening to an interview between Dr Andreas Kaufmann and Ralph Gibson, and I was intrigued by this statement by Ralph Gibson:
      I am curious if any of you have found that to be the case - that 75mm is "normal" for digital photography.
