Wow!! Almost 110,000 pageviews, two daily deviations, and hundreds of comments, and this is my first journal entry!!  I'm such a slacker!!

Thanks to all those who viewed my recent Daily Deviation, "Some of Its Parts" tom2001.deviantart.com/art/Sum… featuring the amazing model Mandy.  I wish I could respond to all the over 300 comments this image has received in the past 24 hours, but I'd be at my keyboard for days!!  

All your comments were read and appreciated, whether your liked or disliked the image. Most of the comments were overwhelmingly positive. Even comments criticizing my post processing technique were appreciated, and will definitely be kept in mind as I create future images.

I do find in fascinating that the people who wrote the most negative comments (less than 10 at current count) have a tough time explaining why they found the work "disgusting" "inappropriate" "really ugly" or, in one case, think of the model as a "demon." (I nearly forced my morning tea through my nostrils laughing at that comment!!)

Yes, it takes all kinds.

Some technical info for those who asked: Image was shot with a single 3x4 foot soft box positioned over the model's head, feathered slightly forward. Post processing included some skin smoothing, a boost in contrast, a bit of dodging to make the eyes reappear from under the shadow, and, of course, B&W conversion.
