Hey Marek,
good compo,
great image although a bit scary,
you could've framed the legs to the border, here the look independantly dangling,
great detail never the less :)
Cheers TFS,

Isn't it so true that the world today de-humanises the female form so often. I feel like this is a tribute to the way we look at women... I too am so guilty...

Or perhaps this was just a fun shot... which ever it is you have done it well. did you do it in photoshop? With a large saw and then have to clean up the mess first? Or just use some shot dumbies legs?

Hoping to know more both about your motivation for this picture and your technique...

HI MArek,
Great legs, great B&W, good POV, but I think the sudden cutting off of the torso takes away, like it is missing completion, flow or continuity. BUt well worth a smilie ....TFS,

Hi !
I donít know how to express what I felt by seeing your image. Itís really remarkable. Itís unnerving and unexpected. Itís at the same time sensual and terrifying. Congrats for the idea and this superb result !


czesc Marek! zdjecie pozwala na wiele roznych interpretacji. podoba mi sie pomysl i samo wykonanie. milego wieczoru! E.

fantastic compo, bit strange and scary but beautiful.

Jak dla mnie rewelacja:) Pomysł, kompozycja - świetne. Pozdrawiam,


That's wonderfull work here! The effect is a punch :) Surprising and original! Well realised! I imagine with 2 photos? Excellent montage! It look natural :)
And if it is... Where is the rest?

Some people seem to be missing not just the WOMAN but actually the POINT... 8)

I think this is very funny as it is... the sexy&commercial cliche of sexy&gorgeous legs in sexy lace tights is just completely subverted by the prosthetic effect of having no woman to continue the thighs... But then when you (or I), as a man, see a sexy female bodypart, you (or I) often ignore the rest anyway, whether you (or I) admit it or not...

Becoming courious about the rest of the body may take long seconds to develop... and becoming interested in the personality often takes years if it ever happens, sad as it is... Mind you, I am not saying this is good, I am just saying it happens all too often...

Great, ironic, nice capture! Good compo, blah blah blah. The bedsheet is a bit too grainy maybe. But very original and fun idea delivered very well. An eye opener! 8)

A bit surreal abstract. I like it how you have avoided the centering of the legs position. Very nice b/w.


Swietny pomys? i wykonanie

Excellent work! I'm full with ideas now, thanks for the inspiration! :)
I like your composition, the way you used one leg for vertical frame and other one for the diagonal line is very powerful, as well as placing the invisible part on the upper left third. B&W just helps achieving the mood, and it's done in a great way, congratulations!

Very nice work, TFS!

Pleasant and disquieting picture,great impact indeed.

amazing work Marek.. a masterpiece of mood and slightly disturbing sensuality.. everything here looks great and the soft light particularly strikes me.. you've done a really wonderful job :-)

excellent image,

Good composition, intelligent PP work and a striking pose (or should that be half a pose?)
Thanks for sharing
