    I'm not sure if this are abstract enough. But it's as close as I've come with any recent material. It is kind of quick and dirty too. Done very fast so I could show proofs to the model.


    Enjoy your long weekend!

    I guess I'm sorta breaking the rules but believe me, the nip is just a shadow. Have fun figuring out how I took this shot.

    I took this this morning. I used sunlight for my light source. I'm hoping my neighbors didn't see the show .... ;)

    After Speeds Post I figured I'd take a cold bath...

    And here are the results of that....

    Since its supposed to be an abstract, I cropped and edited down, also desaturated.

    on a tripod angled from my husbands walk in closet next to the bathtub.... (yes, my hubby gets the walk in closet! brat!)

    The original is bigger, includes my face, and more leg. Woowoo.
    I have another one, with just a shawl on, against the window, so its silhoutted.

    THANKS NAT

    My husband said and I qoute "that last one of adina...I can see her shot hanging on the wall somewhere" and and he said he loved it quite a bit and it was well done...the softness was just right

    I like this image

    I think the strength lies in the upper third of the image - in the lips and shoulder That might be an interesting crop.

    It is quite funny the comment that a guys nips aren't sexual but a womans are. In actual fact, both are sexual, just not seen that way in a guy. Is it because woman are looking at the pecs and men are looking at the mammary glands, a bit like the downstairs department isn't it.

    Nothing is sexual unless the observer wants to make it that way.

    Most sexually arousing images are those where the implied sexuality is there but not displayed, as apposed to sexually explicit pornography images which are just way over the top most times, although I did see one on photosig recently that was extremely tasteful high key shot that I think most comments thought the same.

    Interesting thread and discussion so far.
