The first one is a very nice figure study. The tonal values look great.

Not so keen on the second, she looks a bit static to me, no flow in her pose, but mostly I'm feeling that the tatoos we see now will soon be seen as a mistake. As the fashion passes, getting rid of them may not be so easy. Still, that's me, and I know lots of people like them.
Best regards

John

I can only echo Big John's comments here.

The first image is a classic figure study and is very impressive. The second one, although showing the model well
against the backdrop of the waterfall doesn't quite come up to the first one.

I also agree that tattoos distract from the natural beauty of the young lady rather than add anything. Mind you, I have
never understood why anyone would want a tattoo anyway but that's just me being an old fogey I guess.

Keep the pictures coming Chris. You are rapidly becoming a force to be reckoned with at the club. You must have been
listening to the good advice from the members.

I love the first one. Classy pose. The second one is good but not as good as the first one. I find her blending into the background a bit, maybe this could be darkened down a little, not sure. I agree with the tattoo comments. I've never been a big fan of them especially on women. Also, my eye keeps going to the tattoo rather than on her face. Great work though Chris. :D

I think I prefer the black and white version to the colour.

Image 1 is my favourite. Image 2 is good but not as good as the first for the reasons John mentioned.

I photographed Katie a while ago before she got the tattoo. I don't mind tattoos too much but here, for a classic nude, I would probably have turned her and shot her from her right side (as in image 1).

Good stuff Chris.
