Suggester says; I adore the symbolism behind the canyon as representation of the alluring contours of the model. Beautiful concept, and awesome execution!

There are a few things that are really great about this picture. The soft lighting shapes the body of the model and the soft-looking rocks very nicely, the greytones also look very natural, soft, not overdone and very well-balanced. The pose of the model also fits the image in such a perfect way it almost looks as if the rocks and her body belong together, they're in such great harmony. Her face-expression doesn't look artificial and the way she has her eyes closed support that calm, natural look of the image. The only thing I have to criticize is the field of fiew.. one of the first things I noticed was the cut-off foot.
It would have been more harmonic and pleasing if the image had a litte more space at the bottom.
nevertheless, as already said, its a very beautiful image.

Great Job and congrats on the DD! :)

This is the second time I've seen your photo and I must say both times I've been completely entranced. I'm not a huge fan of artistic nudes just because they seem a little over done and just in the wrong environment. I love that this is black and white so you can focus more on the patterns and lines and I love how the model just sort of melts into the rock. This is really well done.

I don't like that kind of photo, because the nature seems a bit unrealistic, but with the model there it seems more real to me :) this is incredible!

The thing that I love most about this is how the canyon walls and body of the model are so similar yet at the same time contrast by texture. What with her she seems to be part of the canyon, yet I can just imagine the transition of feeling one would experience running their hand over the wall and the skin of the model.

Excellent work! I love it. :)

Where was this picture taken? The flow of the rocks suggests an old river or mountain runoff, perhaps a desert somewhere? I've got a fascination with geography (and women, yes, but I think I'm evolved enough to not make that my obsession in life) and was just curious.
