After having read what both yourself and Pinionist wrote i felt you were both totally RIGHT and at the same time totally WRONG. The following explains...i hope :)

:iconaplz:nd now for a completely different view on this photo. As a glamour model this is exactly how she would be expected to sell her image and, for a producer of girls/models/celebs calendars this is precisely what they want for the worlwide market demand . It just runs alongside other female artform photography but in a different niche. Remember also that everyone views something in a totally varied way to their neighbour etc.
Myself! I don't find this in the least bit erotic, porn tinged or anything remotely of a rampaging hormone male disposition. To me its a well lit, gentle and relaxed photo that could easily be of someone who is a rising star surfer (or other water sport activist) in a swimsuit...heck if she was on an ice surface i'd think she was wearing a skating outfit. These type of photo's are the mainstay bread and butter work of many photographer's/artist's. If this had been taken in an exotic location with better lighting, sun etc. it would easily stand up against the photo's that the likes of Patrick Lichfield and David Bailey et al did for the Pirelli Calendar's.
Take a look at this year's issue, done by Mario Sorrenti and decide which is the blatantly more pornographic between the image here and the Sorrenti shoot. If this was put into Photoshop it could be made even 10 times better.

I think i had better leave it at that before this end's up being a novel :lmao:

There was something special about this: [link] or even this [link] , but what do I see here is just another blonde for cheap erotic calendar photo. You can do so much better about this girl.

i ve done better than this ,like this one [link] which is my favourite. I always say how not educated are the people in DA, and that they seem to make popular, artworks that are cheap ,boobies, asses etc. So i help them. i kind not care a lot about my DA account, so i let a lot of crap to be shown the past year - something i never did, and still dont like. normally i wouldnt expose my watchers to that kind of photography. thank you for your comment, i agree with you. Photography is my hobby, pictures like this is work

Yeah but then what shall become of deviant ? Place for teens for some artsy soft porn ? The one you showed is really breathtakingly beautiful. You should use these two images and show "how to present your model properly and cheaply". Because it takes a keen eye to see that extra nice angle to a girl and show it.

i often do that, dont think because i upload something, is because i find it artistic. Sometimes i upload something, with exactly this meaning. To show the difference. Unfortunately one cant do any difference. If you see what is popular everyday, its just dissapointing...

Yeah it's sad, because erotic art can be very beautiful, as many artists proven many times including you, but very often even serious photographers did a lot of porn things here on dev.
