Interesting. If this were a new model, this set might be considered pretty good. The little sweep-the-porch story-line is fun and a little different. But this is Li Moon and the bar is very, very high with her, so the consensus seems to be that this set could be better. There are two things that are making people comment (including me, I guess). First, Li is clothed in roughly half of this set! That has only happened once or twice before. She is clothed at the beginning of a few of her early sets, but the beautiful, revealing shots that follow complete the sets and make them highly memorable. And second, although I don't think it wasn't intentional, Li has a particular trademark asset that has happily been a part of nearly all of her previous sets. That creates, whether anyone wants to admit it or not, a group of images that the entire Met-Art network viewership eagerly anticipates with every Li Moon set. They are part of what makes Li so popular. I totally get that maybe the model or photographer or site want to tone down the sets a little, but doing so is going to be disappointing for many of Li's fans and, inevitably, some are going to comment about it. Li is an incredibly beautiful and uninhibited model. Arkisi is an amazing and talented photographer. You can't have good photography and good modeling without some experimentation. Keep right on experimenting, but don't forget the trademark shots As always we will eagerly view the results and, of course, comment.

Wow! Terrific new model! Welcome Lia!

I'm not real fond of the 80/20 lighting in this set, but there are a few truly beautiful images here.
The great thing about Met Art is that there is no shortage of variety. That goes for models, sets, photography styles, openness, everything.
Ask yourself this question. Is the process of commenting on Met Art similar to the process of commenting on Twitter of Facebook? For the latter two, success is often NOT measured by the positive or negative, but by the number of comments or responses a particular post generates. If commenting on Met Art IS about getting a response, then Kira and Natasha both come out huge winners.

Beautiful new model, Caramel, welcome! Terrific opening set. Paramov managed to give us every curve and angle with very little impression of posing and no props, which is very hard to do with new models. And the high level of eye contact is impressive. Nice job. Thanks!

Adel is another international-level model that people from 100 countries would say was born there, regardless of the British Isles look. Clearly, her beautiful red hair, green eye's, freckles, wonderful smile, perfect figure and casual, open nature place her among the top models in the Met Art network and one of the most beautiful of the amazing redheads here. Thank you for sharing!

Amalie is always OMG smoking hot and I think it is the eyes and the lips that do it. It gives her what may be the most sex appeal of any model on the site. I imagine that she can use that power to seduce any partner or partners she wants. Oh what lucky men or women they must be.

Let me define world-class model. A world-class model is one whose beauty and grace transcends borders and cultures. They are very, very rare in this industry, but I'm sure we are looking at one here. You could show a clothed image of Serena to anyone in Europe or North America and they would identify her as a native to that country or state. Her expressions, movement, conservative make-up and, thankfully, lack of ink help make her a citizen of the world and one of the best things ever to come out of Ukraine. She may not understand the countless number of languages people around the world use to describe her, but it all translate into two English words. Wow! and Thank you! My keyboard doesn't type Cyrillic, so I'll just say that and hope it comes across.

Well, some people don't seem to mind it, but to me the strong back light and soft focus/glare detracts a LOT from this set, which happens to include one of Met Arts most perfect models. Just because you are using natural light, that does not mean you can throw all the lighting basics in photography out of the window. I get that this is artistic license, but you have to be aware of your set, your subject, your lighting and your audience. This member of your audience is not thrilled with the emphasis on environment over subject. In spite of the ungodly beautiful Candice as the subject, I'm disappointed with this set.
Monday, May 1st, 2017 on Dojadi
So....what is it about this set BESIDES the hair and eyebrow color that is different? The set seems competent and it checks all the boxes, but something is missing. Lucy looks OMG awesome, but.... Is it that Lucy doesn't give us any of the little smirks or pouts that we sometimes see in her sets? Is it the warmer tone of the set? I can't quite figure it out. Does anyone else have any ideas?

Sometimes it takes a special photo set to make a model stand out among the beauties here at Met Art. Galina is a beautiful girl and I see several prior sets of her but none that are as seductive as this one. Perhaps this is the break-out set that will put her up there up there among the top models here.
Galina looks ravishing fully clothed and the entire sequence is really spectacular! Thank you!
Monday, April 24th, 2017 on Hevad
Excellent set of Emily. I am especially impressed with how this set reflects a more mature sultry look and how it provides images that include all of Emily's spectacular figure. Image 121 is one of the very few full-body images on this site where you see Emily in a perfectly natural standing position. Nicely done! Thanks!

Very pretty model. Welcome! Now....most of the time, the rear and spread shots are great, but a little more visual foreplay would have been nice. I'd like to see miss Angel from every angle. ...it's about appreciating her curves. Images 19 and 23 are very alluring and image 98 shows she has a wonderful figure with absolutely nothing to hide.

Very nice new model. Welcome! Don't change a thing.
Saturday, April 22nd, 2017 on Presenting Mirabelle
I love this This model, as do many others. She is simply beautiful. But there is a slight problem. In 18 sets on MA and nearly 2000 images, I could find only 3 images where she is genuinely smiling (showing teeth and smiling eyes). Then why doesn't she smile more in these sets?
Although I agree that the pensive look is more appealing than the dumb grin that many new models constantly have, this model is no nervous newbie. Bad teeth? Nope. Shy? Clearly not (thank you very much!). She is very alluring when she smiles. So what's up? Is it a facade? Is she being arrogant? Does she hate Albert Verin? Does he tell her not to smile? Does she just hate nude modeling?
Or.....is her smile the one asset she hides from us so we continue to wait in anticipation to see it? If so, that is pretty smart, but 18 sets is long enough to wait.
Somebody, PLEASE, let this girl have a little fun!
Tuesday, April 18th, 2017 on Drioma
I think the smile thing might be because of the impossibly high standards Americans and some western Europeans have about teeth. Skylar has a very nice smile with very white teeth. Many of these models don't have the greatest teeth and a few have braces. Rather than detract from the set and attract rude comments, photographers choose not to show them. As a result, you see a lot of close-mouthed grins. Skylar, unlike many other models, has very nice teeth.
Monday, April 17th, 2017 on Presenting Skylar
Holy shit! Look at her EYES! Oh....wait... I first thought they were multi-colored, but image 46 reveals the blue-hazel look to be colored contacts. Oh well. Is that a thing? Skylar is a very pretty model, though.
Girl on the sand or in the ocean is fine. Beach on the girl, not so much. I grew up a block from the beach in south Florida. Sand on or near private parts makes me cringe for very good reason. It can be VERY uncomfortable. Probably why they make sandpaper out of it and use it for sandblasting...
Wednesday, April 5th, 2017 on Teneza
Well..the set starts outside. Her nails initially seem OK. She is practically on-point in several of her outside shots so maybe she scraped the ground then. I'll bet they did some other shots outside and then moved inside without noticing how dirty they were. So you can't fault her for that but the photographer/crew should have noticed. Very hard to un-see though. Bubble burst.
Tuesday, April 4th, 2017 on Presenting Jilian
I'm always happy to see Candice. She is one of the most perfectly shaped models anywhere and she knows how to walk the line between not enough and too much.
Overall, this is a great set....but there are two things I'm going to comment on. Feel free to disagree with me. I'm sure many will.
First, there are some minor image issues. Many of the images are very soft. I attribute this to the indoor natural lighting and the need to push ISO to get the shots. The natural light also creates a very narrow depth of field that sometimes sets focus at the wrong place.
The second issue is the bra. Candice is 100% natural as far as I can tell so the pulled-down or shelf bra look is not at all flattering to me. Nice, lacy, transparent or interesting bras are great but pulling an underwire bra down like this reminds me of the far-past-prime american porn stars that do this because they sag or have enhancement scars. Candice's breasts are SO much better than that and there are much, much better ways to tease us with them.
I totally get that some like the bottomless first thing, and I even get that this might be one of Candice's own bras. (It is certainly an interesting bra when not pulled down.) But a pulled-down underwire bra should not be part of the set when the model has perfect, perfect, perfect breasts.
I don't like ketchup on a Filet Mignon or ice in my wine and I don't like the super-cheap wicked-temptations look on gorgeous Met Art models.
I hope this was helpful.....

One of the great challenges in any type of modeling photography is capturing grace in movement. Frankly, I prefer still images because often as soon as many girls move, the lack of grace somehow distracts from the beauty. Great photographers can convey grace by carefully posing models, but I have a feeling this is not needed at all with Kika. She is already one of my favorite models, just from her photo sets, because she seems to have a natural grace about her you can see in every image (Over four thousand images....zero awkward poses). The videos of her do a spectacular job of confirming that she is truly as beautiful and graceful in motion as she is in all of her photo sets. (Sadly, there are no videos of her here on Met-Art, but there are on other Met-Art sites.) The Met-Art universe includes thousands of models that are among the most spectacular in the world. I have been a member here long enough to enjoy viewing nearly every one of them. I am not embellishing when I say that Kika is among the top 10 most beautiful models ever to grace the Met-Art universe. Thank you very much to everyone responsible for these wonderful sets and videos, including, of course, Kika!
Monday, March 27th, 2017 on Kika
You have a good point...but. I have been a permanent member here for over a decade now and what sets this site apart from others is the incredible photography and truly beautiful models. Although there is probably a preference for more explicit sets, there are times when the right girl in the right setting need not be explicit at all and still be amazing to see. I think what we all are here for is to enjoy the SHAPE of the female form. Every curve, every angle, every vantage point, from top to bottom, head to toe. I am constantly in awe of the female form and this is simply the best place on the internet to see it. I come here for my daily does of "WOW, that is a truly beautiful woman!"
That said....I can't SEE much of the female form in this set. There isn't a single image of her just standing without being draped in a curtain or lit in a totally obscure way. There are a couple of images that show most of this model's fine physique (20,31) but she is kneeling on a bed for almost the entire set and the 80/20 side/back lighting for most of the set highlights some curves while completely obscuring others. The techniques used here are often used on other sites to hide bulges, bruises, bumps, bellies and tattoos that the model or photographer want to de-emphasize. But this model is spectacular! Why do that when you are shooting somebody as special as this? Tell me, without looking at any other sets, is Kira a fit model or a soft girl? What do her calves look like? How about her butt? What about her back? Does she have any dimples anywhere? Don't know. Can't tell. I can't even tell what color her eyes are because the red curtain is reflecting in them. There is absolutely no need to open a bag of photography tricks at all when the model could be standing in a completely empty studio and blow us all away with her beauty.
THAT is why I don't like this set.
This model, without a doubt, can stand in an empty, well let studio and make us all go "wow!" Perhaps that can be her next set.

I'm going to throw a couple of cents in here. I have written nearly the exact same thing about other photographers in the past, but I think the difference probably boils down to setting and model more than photographer. Dave shoots nearly all of his sets outdoors and/or poolside. It is very, very difficult to make these settings up close and intimate and they are not always comfortable for the models. Often, you have to shoot from across the pool using a long lens and something is always lost when the subject is 30 feet away. The lack of objects to lean on like a bed or chair also means that the poses can be limited or somewhat strained and that many of the beautiful curves and perspectives we all love simply aren't possible. And Dave's models themselves are a little less frequent here, meaning they may not yet be the best at understanding how to pose.
That said, there is always room for a photographer to improve. Some of these sets, for example, use a formula so similar that you can see where two shoots are almost identical, shot for shot....or at least shot style (i.e. full shot followed immediately by close crop.) This set doesn't make use of a single piece of furniture, any props or even a towel. I'm not a big proponent of props, but the towel in Dave's shoot of Elina makes the model much more confortable and the set more inviting. The use of a chair or chaise lounge would help a lot, too as well as switching lenses and getting in a little closer...not just shoot zoomed in closer, get closer. A few of these models have been shot by Arkisi. Arkisi shoots all indoor shots and is simply a master at lighting, perspective and presenting a model in the best possible way to show off her curves and positive attributes. Often, these are the best sets taken of some of these models and there are usually lessens to be learned from them for both the model and the photographer. If there is one thing I know it is that there is always somebody better that you can learn from. Never stop learning.
Tuesday, March 14th, 2017 on Loddie
I actually really like this set and think the color choices are spot-on. The tan background colors complement the tan and white color of Veselin's skin, showing her off as an active, sun-loving girl. The open positions and eye-contact with the camera convey confidence. But the nicest play that the photographer made was that in all this tan, cream and brown there is a small, private, personal touch of pink. Nicely done!
Saturday, March 4th, 2017 on Matolia
Oh crap, I wasn't going to comment but after dozens of remarks, I have to chime in. First, the girl is probably barely 18 or 19. You are ALL confusing thin in a 25 year old with normal in an 18-19 year old. You are also confusing an A-cup with skinny. There is a very popular girl on this site that has the exact structure as this girl except she has full C cup breasts. NEVER ONCE has anyone accused HER of being too skinny. At this age, a LOT of girls are thin. She is tall. She is slender. She has about 17%-19% body fat and a fair amount of muscle, which is within the norms for her age. Do you see any ribs? No. Any bony limbs? No. How about protruding hip bones SO common on this site? Nope? Wow. NOT too skinny for her age. She is perfectly healthy and just right for HER! And although we have the ability to comment, SHE decides and has clearly decided. Not us. You want to ever see her again? Want to watch her mature as a model like so many other beautiful models here? Then don't discourage her by your misguided sense of body norms. We are on a site full of petite girls and the idea that somebody leads the discussion about this girls size is a little hypocritical considering why we are subscribers to this particular, many-girls-here-are-very-young-and-slender web site. 'nuf said.
As for the photography, I do wish that we could see her a little better. The high contrast and pushed ISO wash out any detail. I can appreciate that the photographer keeps his/her distance if she is truly a new and uncomfortable model, but please make sure the next set, assuming there will be a next set, is in a setting where that allows us to confirm that she is as beautiful as she appears to be.

So....here we have a popular, attractive, talented, well known model/porn actress that has been seen on Met Art alone at least 36 times. So...what's with the weird lack of eye contact like she's some first-time model who is nervous as hell? She is looking away from the camera in 90% of the shots here. That's ridiculous! Every other model since the early days of Voronin, especially the popular ones, make eye contact with the photographer at least 70% of the time that her are are in the shot. I went back and saw that many of Katherine/Anjelica's sets are like this. It has a significant negative impact on the allure of the model. Is she difficult to shoot? Is she being aloof? Does she not like the photographer? These distracting thoughts come to mind when I see this set and should be thinking of nothing other than this beautiful naked woman in front of me. Fix this in the next set of her, OK?
Tuesday, January 31st, 2017 on Lemyta

There is beauty and then there is allure. Nearly all of the models here on Met-Art are beautiful. Kika is simply one of the most alluring models I have ever seen. In describing how much I enjoy seeing her, I could use words like the sun, wine or chocolate, but there are no words in any language I know that do her pure beauty justice.
Wednesday, January 18th, 2017 on Frejate
I'm sitting here reading some of these comments and laughing. Don't you guys have anything better to do than complain about sets? As I've said before, you can see many of the Met Art models at other sites doing far more than they do here. Many of these models are bi or lesbian and they do a very, very
good job of proving it elsewhere. Now...complaints about false intimacy? Really? Hello?? These are soft porn shoots. There is FAR more intimacy in this set than you will find on many if not most lesbian scenes (and pretty much ALL of the straight porn scenes) elsewhere.
About the eye contact. The whole idea with eye contact is to put YOU into the scene. When there is no eye contact, it places you in a detached, unnoticed, invisible or hidden observer role. With two girls, that eye contact is even more important. Have you ever been with two girls? The experience differs depending on whether the activity is for your benefit or for one of theirs. Sometimes, depending on the girls, you have to be invited into the action. This photographer has set up this scene so that if the activity isn't entirely for your benefit, you are clearly being invited. Now, if you enjoy being invisible, I suppose I can appreciate that. There are other scenes here and elsewhere where the girls hardly look at the camera at all. But like Knackers, I'd much rather be a participant than an observer.
Wednesday, December 21st, 2016 on Maldezi
OK, so her name elsewhere is Anjelica/Ebbi and she is a very talented and experienced model. Happy to see her here. Looks like a fairly recent shoot, but it is hard to tell. This is a nice set, but the lack of eye contact deprives the viewer of much of her charm. Ron might have been trying to start her here with a more innocent look. Quit that. Just quit it. This girl could stop a 747 in mid flight with some of her looks. Bring it!
Saturday, December 17th, 2016 on Santhe
I think it is interesting that most men don't consider lesbian scenes hardcore but if there is a guy involved, it is. I've never seen a comment that says "too bad she decided to do a lesbian scene", have you? Many models here do harder stuff on other sites and a few models even seem to enjoy much darker stuff. Michelle is a stunning model and if she wants to take things up a couple of notches, that's up to her. What none of us want to see is this or any beautiful model...or anyone for that matter...base their self-worth on the opinions, desires, demands of or control by others. Too many models have become addicted to that self-worth formula. So let's just appreciate the amazing sets like this and try not to judge the model's career decisions. There are 136 beautiful images here displaying the most appealing form of beauty on the planet. Look at the images. Feel the endorphins kick-in. No need to get even a little cerebral about it, (I apologize), just enjoy.
Saturday, November 19th, 2016 on Vanola
It seems some folks really has their panties in a wad about this. My two cents.
As a once-professional photographer, I know that in any shoot or assignment, regardless of the quantity of shots taken, there are typically only a percentage of images that are publishable. This is just the way it is no matter how talented the photographer is and how expert the model is. So to require a set to have 120 images means that some 150-300 shots have to be taken, reviewed and filtered. That is a lot of work both upstream at the shoot and downstream when deciding which pictures to publish on the site.
From a competitive perspective, asking potentially freelance photographers to provide more images than what other sites request could put a site at a competitive disadvantage. These models and many of the photographers shoot for several sites. If a high-quality photographer with a collection of good models feels restricted by a count quantity, chances are that he or she will take those images elsewhere. There are ample buyers. Sorry for mentioning other sites here, but I just did a quick scan to see the quantity of images recently on other non-network sites in this genre and here's what I found:
Hegre-Art: 30-50 images (1 set a day)
FemJoy: 80-120 (1 or 2 sets a day)
MPL Studios: 50-105 (1 set a day)
Watch 4 Beauty: 50-100 (less than 1 set a day)
X-Art: 50-100 (less than one set a day)
Digital Desire: 80-120 (1 set a day including re-posts)
I have had memberships on other sites in the past where the minimum number was far less than 80. Most amateur or "18" sites post far fewer than 80 images per set and many, meny sites post less than 1 site a day. Frankly, I am happy that the folks here place all of the images in a set on a single page. Many sites split the sets up into multiple pages so you really can't tell how big a set is. Some even break sets up into multiple releases, which I think is deplorable.
So whether it is 120 images, or 80 images, or some number in between, I am certain that the images presented will remain excellent quality and am thankful that here at Met Art, we get 4 beautiful sets a day.
I have been a member here since 2008 and nothing as silly as a reduction of volume-per-set is going to change my firm belief that this is the best site of its kind on internet today.
For those of you who are mad enough to slather the individual model comments section with comments about how horrible this change is, feel free to go elsewhere for your nudes. That is not the place for comment about this topic. It is disrespectful to the models, photographers and other Met-Art members.
If you disagree with my perspective, that is your prerogative. Don't bother to rebut my comments, though, as I will not be looking at this blog thread again. I've already spent too much time on the topic.

Adel is a beautiful model, but I totally agree that there are some technical issues with this set. Images are soft, slightly out of focus and the depth of field is incredibly narrow, less than 2 inches in some cases. The newer pro cameras produce remarkably detailed images at higher ISOs, so there is no excuse for the "Bob Guccione" style soft images. Please don't screw-up another otherwise beautiful set with poor choices in camera settings.
Friday, August 5th, 2016 on Osike
Well done photo set of a truly stunning model. what makes it so great? Well, to start, Kika has an incredibly warm and inviting look to her that draws you in. But the photo set has a lot to do with it as there are absolutely no distractions or frustrating shortcomings in the images. They are crisp, bright, simple and damn near perfect. The combination provides a visual experience that is exceptional even for Met Art. Thank you to both of you.
Tuesday, May 17th, 2016 on Tercare
First off, Lorena is, um, hands-down one of my favorite models anywhere. Absolutely beautiful. That said, one thing I can never quite tell is how old the set is. On the one hand, she is truly beautiful and many models remain active for 15 years or more. On the other hand, there are a few subtle differences in her appearance between Lucia's sets and other recent sets that indicate they are not chronological. You can't tell from image size anymore because the cameras the photographers have been using have provided very high resolution for many years.
In any case, whether these are new shoots or something out of somebody's library of older shoots, I appreciate the model, the photographer and the excellent photo shoots. Thank you to all involved for providing them.
Wednesday, May 4th, 2016 on Uvena
Candice has developed the most genuine and casual look and smile. Very nice. She's another model that has developed some real talent during her brief, 4 or 5 year modeling career. The whole ice cream thing, which I thought was going to be way too cheesy, came across really well. And I'm sure that Steve Miller and his band will be reviewing this video very carefully to determine whether just seeing Candice in the video is copyright payment enough. (If I were them, I would ask to see her in person...or at least ask for a free subscription.) Nice work to the model and crew!

IF you like Anna and are feeling a bit nostalgic (or adventurous if you haven't been back there), try going back to January of 2010 and checking out the models there. Although there are plenty of beautiful models here today, the volume and frequency of unbelievably beautiful girls in well done sets from that time frame is incredible. Cheers and Happy Holidays to Anna, Eufrat, Jenya, Olga, Mila, Melissa, Nessa and Francine (and many others) wherever you are. And thank you so much, Lorena, Melena (and several others), for continuing to grace us with your beauty.

I'm always happy to see the beautiful, vivacious and endearing Lorena. This is her 91st set on this site alone and I truly hope to see 91 more. She is a model we can all truly be thankful for.
Now...I get the need for holiday props, but holding or placing props on the model is usually something done to keep new and nervous models distracted for the shoot, isn't it? Not needed for Lorena. She is perhaps the most camera-engaging model I have ever seen. Also, I'm curious. If this was shot to be a an American Thanksgiving set, shouldn't it have been pumpkins and cranberries..or can't you get those in Europe?

First things first: Alex is an absolutely beautiful model. Clearly, we all want to see more of her... And I applaud Mr. Lightfoot for responding. That's one of the things that I think is so cool about this sight. People actually respond.
About the images:
I ran some of these images through Adobe Photoshop in an effort to understand what is happening. Short answer: 1 F-stop too high (too dark), probably camera settings that the post-processor was not able to adequately compensate for. These images were not individually processed (i.e. no obvious retouching that I could see), they were probably batch processed from RAW files through Adobe Lightroom or something similar. When you brighten up the first few images, anything with that bright river-rock in the background, turning the image up by one full click washes out that rock. So the batch processor recalculated the brightness for every image to ensure that nothing was washed out. I'm not saying that the images were not shot too dark, they probably were. What I'm saying is that we are seeing them this way because adjusting them would have washed out many of the images and that is something I rarely see on Met-Art. I also want to point out that there is another web site in the Met-Art family, The Life Erotic, that consistently shows dark images. That site is forever stricken from my sign-up list for that reason, but I can easily see how a contract or freelance photographer might not know which site his set would end up on, so he tries different things. If he sells the set, it is a win. If people complain, it is a learning experience. Chances are that Mr. Lighfoot shot all of the "dark" sets we've seen before he got the first comment. Clearly from his comment, he gets it.
So, if you actually want to see Alex, you can open the images you like in Photoshop and go to image-->adjustments-->exposure and choose "Plus 1.0" in the presets pull down. Lots of photo programs allow you to do this, some for free, and you can batch process in Lightroom or a few other image editors. Do this, and you will be able to see just how beautiful Alex is.

There is a "look a gift-horse in the mouth" joke here someplace but it might be considered disrespectful.....she is a gift, though.
First-off, her face is in a shadow in all of the shots where teeth show, so that probably has some negative impact. Her teeth appear perfectly straight, both upper and lower. That says either she has great genes (which is clearly apparent elsewhere) or somebody spent money on them. Oh, and Hello!? Eastern Europe! You have to remember that she may not live in a country that thinks bright ultra-white teeth is the norm. (That has only been an american/Westerm European thing for the past 30 years or so thanks to successful marketing tactics.) Go look at her other sets. Although there are only a few images where you can see her teeth, they do not detract from those sets in any way.
She is a beautiful girl! Just enjoy it!

Melena is another great example of how spectacularly some models mature. Her early sets and videos always struck me as kind of "tart". Cute girl, very young, comfortable, not afraid to stick it in your face, but a little immature and not quite 100% aware of how to use the camera to full potential. Early sets show her with hair pulled back and a very teen look with some kind of smile in almost every shot. I apologize for saying this but, genuine smile or not, for a while it almost got monotonous. Nice, but not quite top-tier.
Not this set. This set is a perfect example of what a great model and great photographer can do. Yes, clearly it is Melena but there are subtle but very effective changes. She's toned it down with the facial expression. The smile, once a toothy grin, is now a sublime, knowing look. Her make-up, lipstick and eyebrows are just perfect, infinitely more polished than her look just a few months ago. There are many shots where she has a new, smoldering look that has just recently developed (i.e. 31, 57, 72. Image 31? The gravity of 1000 suns could not pull me away from that look). And her hair! Wow! That full, long, wavy, look is completely new and simply amazing! I've never seen this from Melena before and I really, really like it. And kudos to Antonio for doing such a spectacular job of capturing it! Thank you both!

Totally agree. Great set. Great model.

So...I didn't look at the name and was half way through this set before I realized this was Lorena. What I saw was a beautiful girl with a dark look, terrific figure and an interesting landing strip. Oh, wait! It's Lorena! Yum! Pina Colada song suddenly comes to mind....

This is really cool. In this set, Arkisi, through a combination of skill and good timing, created what is probably Emily's best set ever. He captured Emily's pale skin, flawless body and now longer, freshly curled and highlighted hair in a way that no one has done before. Emily gets major kudos as she has perfected a smoldering look, a haunting smile, killer poses and the use of that amazing body and hair to ascend from mere playful nymph to powerful, confident woman. Damn that's impressive. I look at image 7 and I am reminded of some truly great actresses from back when they were very, very young. Lauren Bacall and Katherine Hepburn come to mind almost immediately. But something tells me that both Arkisi and Emily knew what they were doing when they shot the initial pin-up images in this set. They were trying to evoke that kind of film-star aura. Well, it worked. Emily is absolutely stunning in the first dozen images in this set. Of course, she is OMFG beautiful in ALL of the images here, but on a site where nudity is normal and incredible beauty is common, some of the first, clothed images in this set rank up there among the top images on this site. So....if Met Art is consistently ranked among the best web sites on the planet, what does that say of these images? Terrific job and thank you very much!!!

Thank you to both Carmen and Rylsky for this set. Well done. Something tells me we have another "nude model most often used for celebrity fakes", this time for Selena Gomez. Carmen is prettier, of course.

Excellent set! All of Ardelia's sets are nice, but the last few have just been ungodly beautiful. Make-up, lighting, the look, everything just comes together in this set. She looks more comfortable. More mature. More in control. Perhaps even in command. Very nicely done. Thanks!

Amalie has always been one of the most alluring models on any site. I hope I can get used to the new tattoo...

Lorena is one of the most beautiful and endearing models of all time. She always makes these shoots look so natural, so easy and so fun. Thank you!

Luca, as good as he is, is just not Erro. And if the set was shot after the corresponding video, the lady might have been a little tired ;) Just guessing here ...
I'm tired of hearing this same bullsh*t excuse about how all of Catherine's models must have bad teeth. If that's the case, then you are saying that Catherine seeks out models who not only have the same builds, hair and other attributes, but who also have bad teeth.
How is it that all of the other Eastern European photographers manage to find plenty of Eastern European girls with perfectly fine teeth? Yes, some even with braces (which has never been a detriment here on MA).
Your comment smacks of prejudice and stereotyping, and has been disproven time and again. Believe it or not, the former Soviet Republics that these girls come from DO have modern dental care. Plus, girls with bad teeth would not be hired as models for long, if at all. That's part of being a model.
Wow. Talk about over-analyzing absolutely nothing.

I like that "beach on the girl" distinction, that's well worded.
Totally agree about the bra. Candace needs no underwiring. It does like a cheap, old-fashionedd American insert job is being hidden.

I couldn't have said it better myself. Well done sir.
hmm, I like it that way.

Tuesday, January 31st, 2017 on Presenting Shannon
You're absolutely right.
... and sometimes the look of her eyes make me believe she's deceased.
I think "beautiful" is a much higher compliment than "alluring".
I find some models alluring who I don't feel are necessarily beautiful. But we can agree Kika is truly beautiful. And alluring.
One more important point needs mentioning.I often 'wander in the wonderland' here,and having quite a number of favourite models,I create 'supergalleries',that is,compilations of shots of a particular beauty,Being compelled to offer some appreciation to that particular girl,which is courtesy to do so,there is always the view of other comments.and there are many occasions where the most witless and offensive remarks are presented there. One recent shocker was the word 'crap' - just that, no names mentioned here - the model is one of the most beautiful and delightful Met models presenting a very lovely set,one of my top sets of her,and this sort comes to Met to upset and offend.Let's face it here - anyone can get in to MetArt.There is no vetting process,and to assume that all are civilised and intelligent people is certainly wide of the mark.It is just not so.
Add to that the strong probability of envious rivals and spiteful mindsets...
I have lived long enough to arrive at the clear understanding that only a small percentage of folk are in their right minds,with much experience to underline that as fact,and the eminent psychologist David R Hawkins has it that in the worldwide population 78 percent of people are not in possession of integrity.I fully agree with that.

The voice of sanity from a professional standpoint! Don't get that very often do we? And backed up with facts also...will anyone posting negatives even take a look at this? I fully agree with this fellow,and my own excursions into the world of girl only erotica going back to 2007 reveal the fact that MA is not streets but miles ahead of its rivals both in terms of quality AND quantity.As posted on Site Feedback from myself recently,there was a day when there were three girls that really appealed to me - I did a quick calculation and the number of 334 shots came up on the calculator.I paid 73 GBP for my last sub,and that is,per day,the grand total of 20 English pence.Given that a decent loaf of bread costs over 5 times that amount,we are talking bargain in anyone's language.
There is also the fact of the immense and labyrinthine MA collection of videos and photos going into over a thousand in the first case and over a million in the second,which anyone is granted access to.An aspect of infinity.Anyone sitting down with the intention of merely viewing all of that on a 24 hour basis would be there for weeks on end.And still there is talk of short measure.It would be fair to say that something is not adding up here,and the fault is not in MetArt,but in the distorted and unreasonable view of the perceiver.I have noted there is a certain individual or perhaps a group that set up a self appointed complaints department that 'have a go' when it suits them to do so,and I often wonder about their sanity or rather the lack of it.
For my part,I have a deep appreciation for the MA operation,and am very thankful to have found my way here.I have found some of the most beautiful girls on Earth in this fantastic and amazing place,and would say that in terms of actual worth,I get between 5 to 10 times more in value than what I pay for.Never would I be tempted to go elsewhere,for the best is here.
Well! Too bad she decided to do lesbian scenes!

Yes, MetArt offers great value compared to other sites. But I've spent a lifetime working with the public & one thing I know as a fact: Regardless of how great of a bargain something is, if the customers are given less for the same amount of money, they feel cheated.
This is a great comment. Very insightful. But... it references numerous other sites. Support team, is this ok to do? I just read the guidelines and it seems no?
The "in-camera" settings and undereducated use or knowledge of what you're doing has been the downfall of many photographers - digital or chemical. And higher ISO is not the be-all or save-all for photography.
The "Bob Guccione" style of soft images _might_ just be what Alex (and infamously, Lightfoot) was going for in this set - we'll never know.
Nessa? Plastic tits Nessa?
no, you won't. Just brightening the pics will not remove the high iso noise. It will not bring back all the details lost, it will not make them sharp and in focus.
The whole set is fucked up and there is nothing to save it. Sorry.

BTW, I totally agree with you in every way, I was just speculating as to how (perhaps) Hipshot had jumped to the conclusion that Sienne's a smoker, even though we have never seen direct evidence.
Well said,keep jumpin´!
