There is a beautiful simplicity here. Your lines are wonderful, the way they draw the eye from your face around the image. My only quibble is that your right arm looks a little awkward.

I like the chiaroscuro effect of the light on your body, drawing attention to your face and your hip. While nude, the placement of your legs and the fact that your hair covers your breasts give a modesty to the image in a timeless way, almost like an Old-Master painting.

The look in your eyes is good as well, there is a sparkle there, but it's a bit enigmatic, as if to say we may see your body, but your thoughts are yours alone.

From a photographer's point of view, the shape in the background could have been centered better and the element in the lower right corner foreground is distracting, but again, this is on the photographer, not you.

Very well done!

I'm not wild about several elements in the photograph from a photographer's point of view, but I love your pose within the space and setting, and as odd as it may sound, I'm intrigued with the play of light and how it serves to highlight the brightness and intensity in your eyes as well as their shape. Think the tones combined with the light really bring out your lovely hair color and lips, but your eyes are simply mesmerizing and serve as the focal point of the image for me. Amazing effort considering the space! :)

What I was talking about, was Apolaustic is a very erotic photo, to me it shows a mature woman in heavy thought in a safe warm place with her own thoughts. This is what I see in MUSE also. Check out "carriage House", "Midnight rendezvous", and "The lady of the Manor".

Fantastic! Another in a line that has stopped me in my tracks. This fat old man of 66, has a dilemma,  Muse or you. Both of you guy's have the perception of a deep artistry that comes out in your work and the soul of the pictures. BLOODY WONDERFUL!!!
