All of the comments here are really kind of sad and mean. That's not what DeviantArt is for guys.
Personally do I believe this should of been a DD, no, but by no fault of the model (except for the right hand on the bottom image, soften it up a bit, it takes away from the fluidity of the rest of the body) . For me the photography is a bit flat and I'm not so into the lighting and composition choices. As an image I see where its going and I really like that, but I don't think that a DD should be chosen by potential of the image but rather the image as a whole.
This in no way is an attack, but seriously Laura, don't even feed the trolls. If you feel that they are wrong, don't even bother. Chances are that they are not professionals, not in the industry, and not really going to affect you in the long run. So don't sweat it.
why would I pay for something I never had any intentions of getting in the first place? Its not a contest you submit to, a photo I uploaded over a year ago randomly got chosen by the person who runs the fetish DD.
Like I said I always check out the DD. Even if it contains a category that doesn't interest me much... For example; I also don't really see what people like about modern art, I still look at it. Every piece of art deserves at least that much. If it's not to my liking, well that's just me, doesn't mean other people don't appreciate it. I simply look at a work of art. I'm no professional, so my opinion is simply that, my opinion. And yes, I will always first ook closely at a work of art, even if I don't like it, before forming my opinion.
And you have to admit, the amount of crotch shots on Devart have nothing to do with art. The piece in question was merely suggesting something, and thus much more tastefull than most of the nude art posted on devart.
The artist of whatever category did bother to make a piece of art for others to enjoy, so I will always make time to look closely at a work of art. Even art that's not to my liking.
