another fantastic pose pulled off so cleanly by the wonderful Joceline.
Daily DeviationGiven 2008-03-13
"This is the kind of image that perpetuates the words "Fine Art" in Fine Art Nudes. It is an exploration of form, symmetry, light, shadow and technique. The pose that the model exhibits in "Praying Mantis" in combination with the modeled light is reminiscent of a sculpture on display. The image is so clean and truly conveys the beauty of the human form in all it's lines, shapes and limberness." - =NoHoRimpianti777.

This pose looks like a "ready for war" or "warning" stance that animal or people may do, before striking.
Your have a wonderful talent, thank you. Just gorgeous work. Thank you.
On Favs Now!
Congratulations to both.
On Favs Now!
Congratulations to both.
I am stunned. This is a marvelous piece of art, I am going to order it in print. For me it displays very visually the fantastic beauty of a nearly perfect human body, the amount of work and dedication needed from the model to be able to pull off this quite difficult pose so symmetrically, and of course the sophisticated work of the photographer on composing this, creating a very gentle yet precise light atmosphere while keeping the details needed.
Two thumbs up!
Gosh, it's beautiful! I don't try to mirror it in PS, but it seems to be completely symmetric, very nicely held pose, beautiful silky lights with cream-like background... Am I right that even the hand gesture reflects the Kung Fu style of the same name?
I had to fav this photo, and congratulations not only to you, but to the model, too!
welll done! love the pose!
What a beautiful sculpture that would make in bronze or alabaster. Maybe in clay with wire to hold it up.
This pose is beautiful and unique, gives a new form to the human form! Her pose has combined the physical with the spiritual, incredible! You have an epic photo Mr. ~extremecapture!
This is totally awesome, exquisite, breathtaking, stunning, fabulous! Need I go on?
The lines of her body are so graceful and beautiful. The light and shadows show definition in such a wonderful way. Grace personified, this is what I see here.
Fabulous shot, not sure if I should try harder or give up.
It shows off the beautiful symmetry of our bodies in the best possible way! Really amazing stuff
Fitness and finesse at its finest.
