Such a bubbly shot. I like it too :)

exceptionally fine work on the detail of the foreground (shower door) bubbles and B&W conversion !!!

My favorite too of ALL the Bodygraphia shots.

Very cool shot. I love the detail in the water on the glass and the toning on this one. beautiful job. My only issue with this is that the left side of her body (lower right side of the photo) seems a bit distorted/discoloured and to me draws the eye a little too much.

Long time no comment, but I had to chime in, I prefer the original shot. The b&w feels cold and in some areas detail is dropped and in others there's a little too much detail. Keep posting David, I'm a die hard chro-may-sha (that's how I pronounce it) fan! It's been great to watch your photographic and business progress since the heady days of web 1.0 :-)

Am I the only one thinking Psycho? :-)

Very, very good.
And yes, Psycho, but a more sexual shot. Old Alfred would have enjoyed it a lot.

Very nice shot.
Certainly the best of the bodygraphia series.

Thanks everyone :)

Dan: I agree, and I did soften the contrast in that area of the image. It is still a bit of a distraction though.

Dave: in some ways I prefer the original too, but I was aiming to produce something a bit more abstract with this shot, hence the black and white conversion and toning.

Tom: apparently not ;)

I really like this one. The bubbles are nice. What I find interesting is her right arm (the one in shadow) looks almost twice as long as it is due to the length of the shadow and the depth of field. Her left arm (our right) has a similar quality. This, I think, helps towards your abstract intent.

Very cool!

This is really good! Love your work!

I love this one. It's sexy, unrevealing, yet revealing. Perfect. Did I say sexy? :)
