LOL wow, I guess good fortune must be tempered by harsh reality. I probably would have missed this even as a DD (I don't pay much attention to be honest) but one of my friends posted about it and it got my attention. I think it's a really fun piece, great lighting, wonderful colors and the couch is a wonderful texture. It is a great piece, a well deserved DD and a controversy on top of it all, excellent! Congratulations Easy!
First Of All I Deeply Wan't To Apologise to Easy-Shutter It was not my intention to come across as what some would assume a Bully I believe we are an entitled to our own opinions each one is Not going to be the same it was not My intention also to upset or hurt anyones feelings. However it would see I was not the only one with a negative opinion about this piece getting a DD So please whoever else is giving me a hard time just know I am not the only one I unlike some retracted my original opinion it came across totally wrong also sorry for my poor english/grammer hate being Dyslexic but I hope you will understand what I mean.I know I am not the best artist out there thats why I am under hobbyist and not professional but it does take a lot to be a photographer and it must have taken the model confidence to do this in the first place at first I did not appreciate everything behind this photograph or its need for a Daily Deviation however after reading others comments I stand back and say the idea behind this piece is very well put out there.Again I agree a opinion does not have to come across as Bullying so Im so sorry if it did All The Best
It takes a strong person to apologize I used to be like you years ago and it took a lot of teaching for me to learn to be more open-minded. You're only human, still growing and learning. Everyone is entitled to an opinion, not everyone has to like this picture. If someone had said what you said earlier on your photos, and I saw it, I would have deafened you the same way I defended this artist. Good luck with your photography, art is a life long learning process. ^_^
I'm so damn sick of people saying "There are pieces of art that deserve a DD more than this." That is so damn rude to the artist and the work of art here. There are BILLIONS of art pieces in the world, it would be impossible to DD all the "best" ones. Just because there may be some "more deserving" doesn't mean this one is any less deserving. The lighting and pose, the color, this shot is beautiful and interesting. It is a work of art whether you can be mature enough to handle the fact that their is nudity in this shot or not.
Anyone with a camera can do this! Anyone with paint & a brush can do this, they must've told Picasso.... 'This doesn't deserve a DD', 'this is not art'... Remarkable how a lot of these pointless comments seems to be exclusively reserved for nude art... Anyway, nice playful series! good job! is what I wanted to say actually
Also, I criticized the work being up on DD, not the art itself. So I guess I'm critizing the guy who picked it as DD. So don't get your pannies in a bunch and stop leaving me a long comments. So I wont bother reading it. If the artists can't deal with my opinion you, shouldn't fuss about it.
This is a art forum. If you don't like "criticism" you shouldn't be here.
Then don't you think it would be far more appropriate to leave your "criticism" (such as it is) for the person who featured it, on their page? The artist here had nothing to do with their work being selected, so it's pretty rude and silly to leave comments for ^DistortedSmile here....
You know what Ive never been a fan of nudity,but people here on DA always win me over with diffrents approach on it. Great job, sorry you got negative comments, can't win them all,but every artist has those dang critics.(being over a computer makes it twice as worse)
It's human nature, can't fight it,again I dislike nudity,but love the pose,love the suspenders, love the bow tie, love the whole picture. Well deserved daily deviation
This is an amazing shot with great lighting, gives it a soft yet sharp feel. The composition is really well balanced, I especially like the red of the jeans matching the red of the bow and the green money matching the wall. I also like the contrast between the model's fluid pose and the straight lines on the chair. Great work! There are so many other things I could mention and I think this is well worth a DD.
