Standing around, with Garand
This shooter is just lounging around with a .458 Garand in hand.
The picture isn't too terrible: it's in focus, the colors are vivid enough to represent reality and the pose is relaxed. Somehow, I get an impression that it would get less attention than the next photo, though the latter is rather less plausible.
Why do you, the art connoisseurs, have such a preference for images showing just a little more of the human subject -- so long as the subject is comely and not a leper?

I can only speak for dirty old men, not art connoisseurs.

А вид дамы спереди будет? :о)

The rifle on both photos looks a bit too heavy for the girl, her soulders are little bit unnaturaly tensioned :)
But the photo is realllllllly good - fine colors, nice girl and interesting garand.

Bring on the lepers

Probably because we don't see much of that type of art these days.
And the subjects are comely...

This would make me think twice about sneaking up on her.

I don't know... Lepers sound rather interesting as photography subjects. I'd be really intrigued by them to say the least.

possibly because full or partial nudity in public, combined with commonplace activity, represents a sense of freedom that most feel is being eroded.
or we just like bared flesh.

Восхитительно упирает приклад в бедро :)

second is better :)

First, sex sells. Second, neurotic preoccupation with nudity and sex is mostly American phenomenon. Nudity in America has the whole new dimension of inappropriateness and tension.

yes...thanks to our Puritan beginnings, we go all buggy-eyed when we see boobs.

Needs a third photo: No pants, either.

Тугая тёмная майка с длинным подолом здорово подчёркивает бёдра и портит фигуру, на мой взгляд.
Поэтому вторая фотография лучше. А вот если бы на первой фотографии дама была в свободной белой рубашке...

The stance is more relaxed in the second picture. I think I'd like it more even if the clothing was switched between the two.

The stance seems more relaxed in the first picture to me. A hand on the hip is not an indicator of tension in my mind.

Beauty is good. Sometimes clothing can accentuate beauty, sometimes it just covers it up :)

I don't think the first photo compliments her very well. Shows off her hips great, but I think the angles are making the rest of her curves go away. Also you can't go wrong with some good side-boob shots.
