I hate to be on top of the fellow below, but what can you do?
Thumbnails sometimes give a harsh impression of the larger photos. And some effects work better on some screens than others. My television is threatening to leave the house. My laptop is unperturbed.
The visual effect here, combined with the blank white wall, occasionally gives a sense of smog.
Too many good pictures to reject this artistic effort. The loose top is used fairly well. The flare from waist to hip is well treated. The black thong offers effective and needed contrast. Its loss is felt later. Fie photographer! A thong always calls for an upshot or rear view!
At times I feel a sense of confinement -without the tension of peril.
The ever present chop crops cause cringing. An example is 39 (of the thumbs, which is 40 in the viewer -MetArt, this site is too well designed for such clumsiness). This image would be a 10 for me, but for the insult to the head, the loss of the line of the hip, and the lack of the thong across the back.
The vast majority of the comments here show me that 'most' people STILL don't get the "ART" aspect of this site and expect to see "medical journal quality" photos. This makes for a LOT of unhappy viewing. Such a shame.
Rock, my negative feelings about the set had nothing to do with the artistic nature of it.
To me, it looked like Alessandro shot the entire set through a gauze veil, or a haze, or a white filter. The veiled effect did nothing to add any appeal to Nadine's beauty ~ and she is VERY beautiful, but instead, distracted and detracted from it.
If it was indeed an artistic choice, then it failed for me.
However, having said that, most great artists are not appreciated by the majority of the public when they first publish their work. We shall have to see how Alessandro's style fares over time here on MA... you may very well be right and I may be wrong.
Verily (for real), this is a well spoken statement of the majority position.
I think we all agree about lighting and lack of contrast but you know when you look more closely at this set there was some pretty good focus work in places. I for one loved that sequence towards the end.
Serious lens flare here, kills the contrast and color saturation. Was it intentional? Don't know, but I personally think it detracts from Nadine's beauty. If you want an example of good lighting, I think Arkisi and Rylsky have got it down.
Like many have already said, I love the girl (Nadine) but don't love the way this photo shoot came out.
As mentioned by several others, this set had such potential, but the complete lack of exposure control (lighting, contrast, color saturation, et al) turned it all rather lack-luster, imho.
I know this is contrary to the dominant view here, but I'm actually really digging this set. Nadine looks gorgeous when browsing on my iPad.
Wait wait wait! Please after met-art or Nadine is done with this Alessandro faze, please please I would love to see this Nadine's look on a different and more suitable light, setting and photographer. Oh my luv come back with a bang.
Can I take my comment back? I got into peer pressure, I suppose. After evaluation, I gave this set a 10. I can't choose the best picture to simply Sexy look of #91, or to the ass shot of #103, or to the one of the greatest leg shot like #82.
About as dull as it gets
Nadine is just not doing much for me in this set. The lighting is totally off,as is the focus in some shots. I don't know why K accepted this. K could re- run a hot movie like Sofi A in "Orchard "by Fenex. I was in the hospital or Nursing Home for much of 2010, and missed it the first time around.(I had a stroke)I was in the archives checking on what all I missed( you know 3d sub basement, fourth rat to the left)Now Orchard is good,both photography and subject. Alessandro could learn from this.(I never said Fenex was a bad photog, he isn't. I objected to his running out of ideas.)
5seadog, I hope you are feeling better today and you don't have any serious side effects from the stroke you suffered. Take care.
Sorry about the double post, I goofed.
Now that's low:)
Yeah, leave the Instagram-ish post-processing to iPhone users. Not appropriate for a pro shoot.
The attempt to go old school did not work
Such a pretty young lady though!
I'm sorry this is not Met quality work! faded out of focus grainy photos. An aweful setting, and very repetitious. I lost interest in this one very early. I could have done much better with my 12mp point and shoot let lone a good quality SLR. It's as if Nadine knew it was a waste of time turning on the charm for this shoot. Her performance is less than inspiring.
I agree, the quality of Met-Art has dropped drasticly...that is why this is the last mounth of my membership ,I for one have had enough of poor quality photo sets....I do better myself with my eyes closed!!!!!!!
needs more contrast obviously...what was the photographer thinking?
he was probably thinking: lets try this style that is working so well for other sites - and that might be a welcome variation to the usual stuff people see on met art.
It looks like old-style film to me, where the original negatives were lost, and new negatives had to be made off the old film.
Even though it is very pale and pastel ,it is a delicious set all due to Nadine .
Much the same as Mozna
Nadine looks very strange in this high-key set. Must be the make-up.
