I participate in photo challenges. The current one has an entry that has stirred some behind the scene comments. The comments on the site have been positive, but I would like some other opinions as to 1) whether it is an appropriate photo for the challenge? and 2) whether nudity should be allowed?

Your comments either way are appreciated. I would post the photo here, but am not sure if it would get me in trouble. So here is a link the photo.

The Photo in Question

(Note: the link will probably only work thru Monday evening Eastern time in the US.)

If you are going to include nudity in a photo it should be sensual and it is pretty darn ridiculous to try to include nudity that is not sexual.  Nudity need not be pornographic however.  Google Machine Photo for an example of excellent art photography which is sexual, but not pornographic.

In a sense a photo like your example given  is gratuitous rather than photography which is intentionally sensual for artistic reasons, but not pornographic.
