I'm not sure if such pictures are allowed here so if not, please tell me and I will remove it.

Happy shooting,
Yakim.

To be honest, only the context of this says 'female'... it could easily be a young amle, too. The posing of the model doesn't say feminine to me. I'm sure that many will have a different opinion from mine.

On the technical side... why did you use B&W? If this fabric were pink (or another soft color) against the model's skin, it would say "feminine" a little more.

Yakim, the following message can be found in the FAQ section: "Be aware of content. Any photographs considered lewd, vulgar, sexually orientated, or pornographic in nature will be immediately deleted. Please only post decent, tasteful, artistic photographs. You may only post a link to your artistic nude image and not embed it into your message. If you do embed the image to this site the moderator will remove it without warning."

I believe you therefore need to post a link. Over to you.

Hi Yakim...

I'm not going to get involved in the rules and regulations issue. However, I think this is a very beautiful photograph, subtle and artistic.

Best of luck.
Tom

Hi Chris,

The shot was taken in RAW and converted to B/W via DPP. I'm sorry that the feminine context is not obvious.

Happy shooting,
Yakim.

Hi Bill,

Thank you for this reminder. I do not have a pbase or flicker account. Is there any way I can post it anywhere and post a link here? If not, I will remove it.

Happy shooting,
Yakim.

Hi Tom,

Much obliged for your comment. I am not very skilled in this type of photography but the artistic look is exactly what I was looking to get.

Happy shooting,
Yakim.

IMHO none of the above applies, so carry on :-) It's tastefully done in my opinion, and I've seen scantilly clad women in more provocative angles on here more than once and no-one's batted an eyelid.

BTW, if you post a link you have to click on, it will not count towards the WA. If you do what I do and embed the direct code to display the image, it will show, but then there is no difference to posting it directly here!

Stick with it, if someone takes offence then tough. I remember once a woman writing a letter to a photo magazine over here about a magazine she bought: On the front clear as day was a semi naked torso, breasts tactfully covered by the title of the magazine, with the title "Fine art made easy, your guide to lighting, comp, & location for tastful body shots". She then wrote to the magazine saying she only noticed when she got home that it had a naked person on the cover and then went on to compain about the content, which I think was tastefully done. Fact is, you aren't going to aren't going to please everyone!

BTW, I'm kinda with Chris, have you tried other angles and poses? I'm thinking maybe a standing shot from the rear to emphasise the curves of the torso to show her hips etc?

Anyway, best of luck

Andy

Yes, I tried other angles and poses but this one looked the most beautiful to me (and to her).

Happy shooting,
Yakim.

I guess I have no alternative but to remove it but how do I remove the pic without deleting the whole thread? It is not possible to have an OP without an image in this forum.

Happy shooting,
Yakim.

As per Bill's post, I can only post a link, and I can't do that.

Happy shooting,
Yakim.

Why not ask Fred for his opinion first?

Nice work Yakim. It is an unusual angle and crop that accents the sheer clothing and the form. Well done.

Yakim, a different style of photography for you, but very nicely executed. I would like to see a color version also, Barbara

Mark and Barbara, thank you very much for your comments. I'm glad you liked it.

And I have good news (well, at least for me). Fred said it is fine by him. So I'll keep it. Now, as the controversy is solved, I wonder how it will perform on its own.

Happy shooting,
Yakim.

This is a very artistic interpretation of the female body. I really dig the texture, but like others, I would love to see this in color. That aside - fabulous!

I do not see femininity in it, it coud also be a young male. I think Chris is right on this one.
