If someone is shocked by this picture,
they were not, I was not, you should not.

Make LOVE, not war. ;))
????? Great B&W, Well lit. They look like real people and not models which to me removes it from a pornographic theme and enhances the thought of just two people making love.
Great work

byron1 Bravo Sandra! Great, great picture. Masterful use of light! Very 50's!

revenant I'm just thinking what a solid sternum the man must have.
revenant · 2010-06-06: 09:21
revenant OK, that was silly. As pornography (not something I know much about, other than it's too cynical to be interesting and too fake to be sincere), it doesn't work. As eroticism, well, I hope it works for the couple, because it doesn't work for me. As photography, I think you were too worried about the message and forgot the medium; the hands are a distraction, the lighting a little too severe and there are some small details (skin issues) that I would have cloned out.

I am being critical because I think this is a serious effort you have made and because you are an excellent photographer. I hope you continue with this theme (at least for the couple) and do it better.
revenant · 2010-06-06: 09:25
????? erotic but i love it xD
????? · 2010-06-06: 09:43
revenant Instead of being critical, I want to offer some ideas. They're not intended as "I could do better", because I certainly can't. But I can give an outside view.

If your brief (instructions) was an image this couple can find erotic for each other, use both subjects. Black and white looks "arty", but it narrows the message. There is a line in nude couple work. It goes from porn (cynical and cold, IMO) to sculpture (also cold). Your image isn't cold, but it is one-sided and there's little genuine intimacy. I know it is very hard to enter into a couple's intimacy (especially if they're friends of yours), but some more, equal, warmth would be nice. Faces would be good and other positions other than simulated love-making, perhaps.

wildduck I love that you work with real people, not modells.

????? Mooi hoor San, en goed bezig! Maar...... als ik nog eens zo vrij mag zijn mijn persoonlijk gevoel en mening te geven?
Wat mij (persoonlijke smaak natuurlijk hé) een beetje doet twijfelen is het licht aan de linkerkant, en ook de positie van haar arm en hand waarop ze steunt. Wegens de schaduw die er op valt vind ik hem te donker in vergelijk met de rest van de belichte huid, en zie je praktisch niks meer van zijn borstkas. Wat volgens mij de foto misschien iets sterker zou maken (zo gaat mijns inziens de meeste aandacht naar haar ipv naar het koppel in zijn geheel) En misschien mocht ze iets meer naar voor gezeten hebben ipv op zijn buik, waardoor je ook iets meer van de man ziet, zonder dat hij herkenbaar is. En ja, kga eens echt "muggeziften" nu... je kan heel goed zien dat hij korte mouwen heeft gedragen in de zon :-) Kun je die overgang van bleek naar donker eventueel niet een beetje subtieler maken mits wat make-up of de verfborstel op PS?
Sorry als ik wat Kritisch overkom, en ik zou het verre van beter kunnen, maar ik wouw gewoon mijn eerlijke en persoonlijke mening geven op deze foto.
Choqueren doet ie zeker niet, ik vind het een mooie subtiele foto met idd een erotisch tintje.....Nice :-)

DancingDolphin It seems a contradiction that something they wanted for their own bedroom has gone around the world and ends up who know where.

That said, I'm with Stefan. The mans head being cut off is very odd.
DancingDolphin · 2010-06-06: 17:41
thebronzebow I think you've done a great job of capturing what they wanted. The only thing I initially noticed, (and it may be the romantic in me) was her wedding band while his is not obvious... and maybe he doesn't have one... but it would have added another layer to the shot.
thebronzebow · 2010-06-06: 18:53
????? you're a naughty little minx lately, I love it!
????? · 2010-06-06: 19:52
????? Great shot Sandra! Well done. :)
????? · 2010-06-06: 20:04
????? I've got to be honest..I would have liked to seen more of the man's body here....It looks like this pic was cropped too much...for a couple's joint venture, both need to be seen equally....well, that is my opinion my friend...:-) but the lighting is quite lovely....
????? · 2010-06-07: 08:28
dinaana wow,
it's something to be proud of.
I admire theyr courage. :]

mujay i like this shot , very nice :) Yana
mujay · 2010-06-07: 15:41
????? It sure is a very great shot, but I agree with Gloria, both should be equally "exposed"...as to mutiply is a 50/50 participation. Great shot!

dontblink Nicely done, I do agree that I think his head showing might work better but I wouldn't have even known how to start with this picture:)
