Okay, this is probably NOWHERE near erotic.. but I didn't really know what else to categorize it. I love angles and I love lighting. This is one of my strange self-portraits. I love collarbones and necks, they are so beautiful.

I think neck is the most erotic part of a female body !

This the best place for kisses ;)

very sweet pic !

Impressive. You are wrong, this is definitely erotic. Teasing is much more ertoic than anything else.

The soft tones adds a lot to the feeling, making us think we are so close of the subject. The fact we dun see her face is so intriguing. Terribly pleasant for the eye and mind, and definitely worth a :+fav: for it.

Very inspiring! :bow:

Excellent use of lighting and a sensual pose to accentuate the beauty of the neck and collarbone. The glow is warm and alluring and the use of negative space is very effective. Erotic in a subtle, sensual way - leaving much to the imagination, which i personally find more powerful.

Great work :+fav:

this is trully a beautifull picture :nod: i like it a lot :)
bakuretsu Featured By Owner Dec 19, 2003
I would say that this piece is, actually, erotic. While that may mean different things to different people, that's what art is about. What I like about this piece is the dramatic focus of the lighting. I'm not sure by looking at it what type of lamp you used, but I'm guessing that it was relatively close. The light hitting only the center portion of the wall, and only the front of your chest is very well done. You have a small hint of over-exposure on your chin and on your chest, but it isn't terrible. The color of the light is very pleasing.

What I love about these types of pieces (and I mentioned this to superkev on one of his recent close-up self-portraits) is the skin texture. I love photos that are so detailed you can pick out little nuances like goosebumps and hairs. Beautiful work. Good job :)

steamdreamer Featured By Owner Dec 18, 2003
this is a truly erotic piece. your skin is soft and yet features beautiful texture. the lighting shows skin's exquisite quality to be opaque yet translucent, and your pose is soft and sensually erotic without being overly revealing. when i look at this i feel almost as if i am looking at dream of someone making out with an invisible lover. beautiful work! :)

Beautiful lighting and I tooo love colar bones and necks, especially to kiss. Stunning self portrait, with a subtle eroticism that I like.
xxTranceGurlxx Featured By Owner Nov 11, 2003
I like it!!! sexy
wezz Featured By Owner Nov 10, 2003   Photographer
Sure this one might not fit into the Erotic category but some people find any skin showing erotic ;)

Not me though, although I do find this picture very beautiful. The best way to describe the effect of it would be soothing or calming :)
RhoadesAsylum Featured By Owner Nov 10, 2003  Hobbyist Photographer

this...this is amazing. The emotion in this picture is overbearing. The skin is soft, and warm..the lighting perfect. Perfect skin. Amazing..I would like to use this in a wallpaper, if you don't mind. :) (Smile)
purehibiscus Featured By Owner Jul 9, 2003  Hobbyist Photographer
very nice! you have an intriguing look going. how in the world do people such as you do such fantastic work on SELF-PORTRAITS? regular portraits are hard enough...of course, i don't really have any nice photography equipment, so i suppose i can't practice this stuff. my sentiments are pretty much what everyone else has said. nice work!

yachtclub Featured By Owner Jun 23, 2003
Absolutly beautiful. The lighting on the skin is so soft and warm, its very stunning. I too love the collarbone area, almost as much as tummies and navals. :D (Big Grin)

Great work, such a beautiful shot.

The texture of the skin is fantastic! And its all bout the green backround..that contrast in color makes the image.
bluejays Featured By Owner Jun 23, 2003   Interface Designer
beautiful photo...and you have a pretty neck
balgroggy Featured By Owner Jun 23, 2003  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
Erotic photography is classed as what it puts the viewer in mind of. The nuzzling of a soft neck, the pose as if you were avoiding to see a lovers advance, almost in shame of the yearning for that soft kiss upon the throat. Thats what your beautiful picture puts me in mind of, and that is incredibly erotic!
