..
1st: Remove the bottom (cleavage).. & see how popular as art this is then.. ><
I don't like the dead eyes ..expression .. colors.. hand position.. odd black eye against the normal one..
I don't even like the filter/grainy effect which is probably the main point to this picture right?
I'm sorry I honestly can't find anything I like about it.. I'm not sure why this received a DD..

I was merely saying why I didn't like it. My last sentence: "I'm not sure why this received a DD.." I added because I wanted other opinions/replies as to why maybe it received a DD, what people like about it. I wanted other perspectives. I have my opinion. I never said the model was ugly or anything to put her down because she isn't ugly and there isn't anything wrong with her. I said why I don't like this PICTURE not the model in it.

As I said I want others opinions on why they might think it got the DD... If I just sent a note to DistortedSmile then no one would have the opportunity to share their opinions as replies to my comment..

All I am sorry about is that you have to go through a number of comments by kids with issues.

You deserve a DD, so people can discover your beautiful gallery (That's what a DD is all about)

Kids just get jealous :)

I can tell that she is not even naked. Basically, I believe that the focus of the photograph was a decent portrait of a woman's face, or bust, which is from the head to chest. I can see the dress she is wearing, so why people claim that she is nude is beyond my understanding.

Here's a shocker: GIRLS HAVE BREASTS.
Keep your horniness to yourselves and just look at other things in the photo besides the fact that she has bloody bosoms.

May be people won't look at em if the artist didn't make them the center of attention or as you may call it, "the SUBJECT"

They are not. There are other aspects of the photograph such as the face of the girl, the detail caught by the camera on her glasses, the fine lines in her hair, but nope. Folks seem more interested in criticizing the work for the little bit of space at the bottom of the photograph that are the girl's breasts.
Might as well not shoot the picture at all nor ever because no matter what folks are just going to focus on the breasts and nothing else.

"They" are the subject of the photo.
50% of the image (bottom half) IS in fact boobs. And it is the main focus, and it is the main focus on purpose. People will look at boobs
first because the whole bottom of the image is a big blank white space, with a boob crease only viisible. The photographer new what he/
she was doing. That is why the model is naked. She didn't go there like that and said "take my picture now".

And I think your giving the photographer a little more credit then necessary~

"the detail caught by the camera on her glasses"

I really don't see anything striking or well thought out displayed in those glass's reflection...
Anyway, there is nothing really to focus on on top because the whole image is blurry and saturated, sooooo, where else is there to look? The boobs.

I'm sorry, I didn't see the shirt at first :/ "half naked" I guess
And sorry for the unnecassary commotion on this piece...

If I may ask real quick...why did you pick this photo rather than another?
Why is this picked over the other photos in her gallery?

No problem. I choose this one as it looked completely different to the rest of her gallery.

It's an unassuming, understated shot. And I thought it brought her features out in such a beautifully simplistic way.

I understand it's not everyone's fave, but it wouldn't do if we all liked the same :aww:

Oh alright, thank you very much for answering my questions.
I thought even if a deviation had a mature warning and/or was an artisitic nude it could still be featured : /

I was simply saying that folks nowadays tend to focus on the boobs in pictures and nothing else; it comes off as rather strange, though I meant not only in this photo. There are photographs of females out there that are gorgeous but only the boobs are focused on. There are drawings of women that explode in detail but if the breasts are a size D then that is all the commentary is about. You know what I mean?

Yes, that is definitely the truth. That is how society is though, they put emphasis on a women's chest always.

I will be honest, I did notice her face and the upper part of the work first. Then I wanted to see why it's in DD, what's so special about it? I scrolled down and went "aahhh! There they are"

And stop making it sound like there is something wrong with looking at boobs!

There is nothing wrong with looking at boobs. It is simply rather crude to only focus on the boobs.

Ouski Featured By Owner May 25, 2012
I think it's definitely stretching when you try to think of things to look at besides the boobs when the boobs are clearly the whole point of the piece. I won't argue against it being crude, but I'm just saying. This is a fairly unremarkable photograph with a fairly unremarkable filter applied, and a fairly unremarkable 'message'. The only remarkable thing is the gorgeous woman who is the subject, and the fantastic chest she has.

What makes it clear that her boobs are supposed to be the center of attention when it is just a shot of her?

Nothing in particular. I apologize, that was poorly phrased. I meant that the boobs are the only noteworthy thing about the photograph.

She's pretty but- (No, not Jealous- Have a fiance and a house) I feel this got a DD because she has huge breasts and is nerdy looking, I don't know if those glasses are fake, but if they are that's a turn off for me. I actually wear glasses and I don't get the fashion obsession over something that helps me not run into walls. Plus, this is just cheaply edited and I could do this on Corel in like 5 minutes. It's too bright.

I both agree and disagree with you.

Let's clarify: Everything is art. Art is life. Life is everything. Therefore, anything of any subject matter is "art" if viewed in the right way, including (but not limited to) photography. While photography (especially photography of a woman that may or may not have breasts) is usually looked down upon, it is worth just as much merit as any other piece of artwork in its own category. Artwork is not, nor should it EVER be, measured in effort nor time: It is measured in subjective pleasure.

The DD award is, as a certain user responded to you in the comments of this submission, not exactly a reward nor is it reserved for any specific achievement. It is simply a means to give someone more attention for an art piece, of which is determined solely by a single moderator. Thus, it can't be considered some sort of prime award: There is no deliberation or discussion on who receives the DD.


So, I disagree with you in that the DD is not an award, nor is DeviantArt responsible for the DDs given out. I also disagree that the artwork is simply a woman "displaying her chest with glasses". Coming from a Graphic Design perspective, there are a great many things the image can be used for. Stock work comes to mind.

However, I do agree with your disapproval in the moderator's taste. The artwork, while having merit, is barely deserving of recognition. There are far more talented photographers of far greater merit throughout DeviantArt, and this image (while having potential in stock work,) is basically Facebook wall material.

FAQ #873: What do I do when I disapprove of a Daily Deviation feature?
a daily deviation is not an award. It is simply an art piece that caught the attention of a mod. Let me repeat: it is not an award, nor does one have to deserve it. Next time instead of leaving nasty comments on the artist's page, who had nothing to do with it getting a dd, contact the mod who featured it. Or make a suggestion if you know of something that should be featured. Whining about it not deserving a dd just makes you look immature and jealous.

So basically you're proving what I was saying earlier. Big boobs = DD. That's all we have to do.

Yes, I'm jealous, I'm jealous of her "moneyshakers." Like someone here comment earlier, Photoshop outta make some Boob brushes.

Immature and Jealous?

Of course, when ever someone doesn't like something it automatically
makes them immature and jealous. I mean, is that all you have. I have
the right to express my disdain for something THAT DOES NOT DESERVE
PRAISE OR RECOGNITION. Especially a DD.

I do agree, I could of not posted on their deviation, because yes, they
didn't choose to be nominated, BUT I still think it is NOT art, it is
quite frankly a little of a "cam-whore" shot you would see on any myspace
page.
