Male nude with fabric and suggested background created with studio lights . This is a Black and White print on an old warm rag paper. The result is a softer and very warm image. To get the RB version correct the print was scanned and then used in RB.

    “By the River” was not accepted into Art of Erotic Visions
    The reason was: We think elements of it could be improved. These may be issues with composition or framing, excessive noise or soft focus, or excessive post-production. However, we encourage you to contribute other work to the group.

    always interesting to see another’s opinion on a site such a this – I like the composition and ‘natural’ quality of this very much, a fave.

  • I have been moderating thousands of images and have never used the It could be better, etc. This is a print that has sold out it’s edition at 900.00 each. I don’t feel I am qualified to tell someone else there work is inferior. Thanks for the comment and the fave, Tom

    This caught my eye and was not diappointed when I opened the larger image. So many thoughts and feelings were tickled.
    I think it’s yummy!

  • Kay, I love that you like this. I was determined to do this in camera and with lighting so I am excited when others like it, Tom

    Really different, dramatic, expressive, and disturbing. Great piece.

  • I am so glad that you found this disturbing. It is supposed to be unknown and consequently disturbing. I work a lot with nudes and most are meant not to be pretty or sexy but to make you think. It is wonderful to get this feed back from you. Thank you, Tom
