While i am stunned and find this a very good and sexy photo i wonder, why must a woman expose herself to be represented artistically. the female form is something special indeed but i would go to say women deserve more than this. still, art is the expression of the artist and we are simply beholders of those expressions.
This is an ideal "model" for figure drawing: the shadows give form to the body in such an elegant way, and the lighted planes really pop from the background. It looks like it came straight out of an old art instruction book.
