I appreciate what you are saying about the multiple paths of photography, but I'm not sure which path you have taken here. I'm not going to critique the shot because I feel it has already been picked at enough. I took a look at the site you linked, and most of them don't appeal to me (this is strictly preference of course) however one did- (THIS SHOT IS NOT MINE IT IS FROM THE WEBSITE http://jfbauret.free.fr/Portraits-nus.html
I think that I like this image because it seems to offer a look into the girls soul. She looks vulnerable, anxious, and curious all at the same time (my opinion of course).
One possibility about the change in perception of nude photography in recent years is the increase in pornographic images. I'm not saying that pornography and nude images are the same, of course they are not. However it is easy now to draw comparisons between the two, especially when a photograph offers no situational context such as the one that you have presented here.
As for the image, I think its nicely lit, pretty model. I agree with colin in that you might have moved the camera to better align the wall/floor seam.
Keep shooting. I would love to see a mix between your extreme images (the forest/stream dead model-ish nudes) and these softer images.
