I loath and detest magazine and website nudes that have been airbrushed and smoothed that the model no longer looks real but more like a plastic barbie doll.
I've tried to hilight the skin texture here which in this case is I feel, particularly lovely.

'SHE walks in beauty,like the night
Of cloudless climes and starry skies,
And all that's best of dark and bright' -Lord Byron

This is amazing. The color one is lovely too, but this captures the truth of delicate beauty - the soft curves, the motions of light and body, the authenticity of feminine magnificence. And the rose is pretty too.

I do love a accomplished grey-scale photo. You can lie with color what you can't with black and white tones.

Aww wow, thanks muchly. :hug: :D

That's so true, the beauty of black and white is you can bring out the natural textures of the skin. In Caroline's case she has really beautiful skin that has almost a velvet sheen to it in the right light.
It's for this reason I have a problem with all these airbrushing pictures and making the model look plastic.

Agreed. I have issues with the need for the fantasy over ruling the reality of actualy natural beauty. These doctord images only enable all ready existing self-esteem problems. Instead of hidding a distinctive mark or curve, i am for leaving it be to become part of the individual's whole and COMPLETE physical attractiveness. But hteni am also of the mind that covering up an imperfection doesn't cover interior personal ugly.

You are not pudge and trust me, super models and glam actresses do not have perfect bodies. It's all about lighting, shadow and enhancing the beauty that is there.

We had a look back to those shots you took with your red headed friend in the park. We both think you're gorgeous so stop moaning. :D
