Она была бесподобна прелестью одухотворения. Ее руки поражали, как может удивлять высокий образ мыслей. Ее тень на обоях номера казалась силуэтом её неиспорченности.

She was incomparable in her inspired loveliness. Her arms amazed one, as one can be astonished by a lofty way of thinking. Her shadow on the wallpaper of the hotel room seemed the silhouette of her uncorruption.
- Boris Pasternak, Doctor Zhivago
The muted light and soft shadows give this set a dreamlike quality, amplified by Annett's enchanting beauty.
There is a sense of discovery throughout the set - of Annett's sophistication, her elegance, her seductive charm. And oh those amazing arms! Inspired loveliness indeed.
How could you not like this set, .... a ballet dancer posing naked, immodestly showing the world everything she keeps privately hidden away under her clothing......have you never had to suffer the ballet.....all the those pretty girls done up in revealing clothing, stretching them selves into awkward positions ... checking out their bottoms from beneath their tutu as they bend over for the art of it .... while hoping for a slight wet patch in the crutch of their leotard as they raise on leg high above their head ........ the only thing wrong with set is she didn't start off the set dressed as a ballet dancer!
the setting is good. The rest is not.
I'm so glad that there are others who enjoyed this set. I love Annett's posing, and the light and shadow play are wonderful. I only wish that there could have been more of her body in view, like her perfect dancer's legs. But, perhaps they were in close quarters, in which case I envy the photographer.
Annett is beautiful, unfortunately this set is a let down. Looking at some of the comments here I am not the only person who feels this way. Comments like "Nice Scenery", "Nice Window", "The Shadow is a work of Art in its own right, "Boring" and so on and so on.
Forgive my saying, but shouldn't the set be about the model, not the shadow, or the scenery. This set is simply pandering to the photographer's ego. On top of that we have blurred photo's, poor cropping, lots of repetition.
No doubt the Management at Met, as usual, will ignore the complaints of their members and allow poor photography to continue. There is a saying in business that it is "Harder to get new customers, than it is to maintain existing ones". I can only say that Met have become far to complacent about their existing customers, and I won't be renewing my membership any time soon.
I loved the shadow play. Some of the shadows are works of art in their own right and would make cool gallery prints. Annett has a classic dancers body and her movements and poses tell us all that she has classical training. The hair is a bit severe and the set is a bit reserved and a little to focused on the shadow work. I get the feeling that the space that they were working in was a little tight and restricted their options to less than full body shots.
Annett is lovely and her dancers body is perfect. The scenery out the window was awesome but this set was only OK, not spectacular. I felt that waiting till the very last to let us see her femininity was an afterthought and that those shots were just thrown in to fill an obligation and not really a part of the set.
Art getting in the way of good photography.
It never fails. A set comes along that really wows me and it's getting the worst ratings all week.
Great set IMO. Annett is amazing and the lighting and poses are great.
You can't please all the people all the time......
As a fan of Erotic ART, I hope attempts like this never end, but i can see reason why this particular effort missed the mark in some aspects (aside from the obvious shortage of explicit imagery).
The shadow play idea became the series. Some don't like that. The emphasis was on body form rather than face/breast/genitallia/arse. Some don't relent on that. And there is a lack of crispness and resolution in the images. Many don't like that either.
I like it. But Annette as a shadow puppet, not so much.
I usually am so happy that wonderful women appear on my screen and show all they have.
But this set does no justice to Annett.
That's a really nice window.
The photo sets against the wall are one of the most beautiful series I have seen on Met, or anywhere. Sergey Akion took advantage of the room, the natural light and one of the most perfect bodies on planet earth. It looks like Sergey quietly captured Annett playing and posing with her shadow. This is an elegant series with a gorgeous, talented model and a very smart photographer.
??? Hate this set.
I love the shadow-play and Annett's posing. It was quite inspired. And the views out the window with the streaking sunlight through the clouds, followed by the golden light on the water were beautifully fortuitous occurrences that Mr. Akion took full advantage of.
Just a beautiful and artfully inspired set all around.
Well done, Annett and Sergei.
The style of this set is quite the departure for Annett. We've grown accustomed, and I've come to adore, Annett's talent for beautifully dramatic posing. So far her photographers have captured this with wide shots displaying all of Annett's beautiful body, including her phenomenal legs and feet.
So, for me at least, this set, while welcome, is something of a disappointment. As OohLaLa mentioned, artistically speaking, the shadow play is noteworthy and enjoyable. And it would be more so if the shadows were of a full length Annett! However, I can't help but feel that this gallery is not the best use or display of Annett's talents.
This is one of the most awesome sets not only of this model, but on the Internet. The artwork here is stupendous, words cannot do it justice. Annett is a natural model who has total confidence and sees herself as a work of art, which she is. Also, the absence of Photoshopping is appropriate. The posing here is interesting and unique. The back shots are wonderful. All the marks on her well toned and shapely body are interesting. The realism here helps make this set what it is. Wonderful work. Congratulations to model and photographer.
A truly magnificent sight. That is one beautiful lady and so flexible! The perfect female form.
What for Ballerina is ♥Annett♥!!! She makes my head completely spin around... And not my head only I think:-) Adorable...♥ ♥ ♥
149 shots where the model is cut off mid-thigh in nearly all of them. Not one full length shot of this very lovely, lithe beauty. Being a fan of great legs, I always appreciate standing full body shots. None here.
That being said, it was a nice set from the artistic standpoint and I enjoyed the shadow play photos. Annett is beautiful, flexible lady.
Agree on both points. It's nice to have Annett back but the cropping is a disappointment.
Also, there's a nice informal freshness about A. that I haven't seen before.
I gotta say for once it's nice to have the bright light source in front of the model instead of behind her... ( ;
Annett really lets her inner ballerina dancer come out to play in this set. Just lovely. ( :
Agreed! It is so refreshing to have the light source where it belongs. I am so tired of back lit over exposed photos!
Stunning beauty. Wonderful to have her back. More of Annett, please. A couple of videos would be great.
There is something strangely hypnotic about this set.Annett is a fascinating beauty ,it really is a study of rather a strikingly beautiful woman.10 to both.
She's finally back! I really hope she puts out more pics and videos for years to come. She's hands down the most beautiful ballerina and model ever!
