3 -- the model :-)
5 -- a very cute potential mother duck :-)
8 -- almost no airbrushing -- yay! :-)
In fact I would call this image a classic :-)
10 -- great combo with 8 -- wish you could do this with u-know-who :-)
Are you taking note, KL :-?
14 -- Astrud lookin' good :-) 15 -- never looked better :-)
21 -- reminds me of the first time I encountered Astrud, named something else by Femjoy... a very lovely face, a disappointingly chopped bush...
31 -- it would look better untrimmed my dear :-)
Less like a plucked chicken (or should I say Yeti? :-)))
Too much sameness. Is Astrud too conscious of her beauty to simply be?
We might see some real life then -- something surprising :-)
47 -- more interesting. When you give 'em something to do, they forget themselves and are more revealing :-)
49 -- coffee, tea, or me :-?
51 -- you've got a better shot when you get it way up there! :-)
53 -- careful, Astrud -- you're splashing it on your birthday suit! :-)
58 -- I'm sure that Rylsky would like a bit of that :-)
60 -- honey, you would look fab with that thing grown out! :-)
62 -- now thaz the kinda coffee bar I want to go to! :-)
63 -- and I thought Rylsky was the coffee-fiend! :-)
64 -- that'll get her goin'! But not a drop on the saucer! :-)
65 -- perfectly pretty :-) 67-8 -- pool by the pool :-?
70 -- Astrunomical! :-) 71 -- reflection... :-)
72 -- she's a character... -- and you can let your eyebrows "feather", too :-)
73 -- verrry inte-resting! (especially with the sexy shoulder :-)
74 -- xcept for that disproportionate bush...
Honey, it's better as a delta V... :-)
77 -- we knew she was a Yeti in disguise! :-)
If Astrud can get hair in her mouth, you guys can get it in yours! :-)))
Or, call it the Abe Lincoln look :-)))
78 -- comely lass :-) 82 -- nice background (among other things :-)
85 -- nice detail! 86 -- nice airbrushing! :-)
89 -- W-E-T! :-) 91 -- flattering :-) 92-3 -- she feels it :-)
96 -- getting towards Brett Weston :-) 98 -- a beauty :-)
100, 101 -- water nymph :-) 103 -- enchantress :-) 106-7 -- Indian maiden :-)
108 -- one last splash :-)
110 -- better than 109 :-) 113 -- the real Astrud (is preferable to airbrushed :-)
120 -- in the light. Should have left her second belly-button :-)
121 -- the magic butterfly! Very warm :-)
122 -- almost fully disclosed :-)
123 -- thatz what coffee'll do to ya! :-)
She's a major model! :-)
"major" -- what does that mean?
I think in terms of beauty, in expressive range...
There are a few here I would consider "major" models, of the ones I have looked at closely.
Emphasis on "a few" :-)
Beautiful girl. I usually find pool shoots a bit boring, but this young woman riveted my attention. Very lovely. Where do you get the references? #123 #165 etc. ?
Hide comments ... :)
I stopped looking at "outdoor pool" sets... Nothing "erotic" here.
You are free to stop looking at whatever you don't feel you like. We all have many likes and dislikes and no set can satisfy everyone. But I must differ with you on this. I find this set very erotic and not because of any fetish for water or whatever but because I feel Astrud is one of the sexiest women here. The set is not what counts. That is merely decoration. The important thing is the model and the way she communicates with you through the camera. If you limit yourself to only a certain type of set you are cheating only yourself. As long as the model spends most of the set out of the water I am a happy camper!
Actually the important thing is that each of us has his own opinion... Do our opinions always have to be challenged by someone that has a differing opinion? Are we all going to turn into doug eventually??
Sorry if you felt my comment was a challenge. It was not meant to be. When I said the set was not important In meant setting/location. Our own reaction to it is what is important to each of us. It is a very personal thing. As you say we do not have to agree and as for Doug--- He will never change his ways and he will never get me to think his way just as I will never get him to think my way. I think we are all too sensitive at times.
Come on, go ahead and be challenging -- just like Rock! :-)
BTW, hipshot, I'm not tryin' to change your mind -- I'm just tryin' to get a little more diversity on this site.
A thankless task, especially when you're up against the Shave-a-saurus as well! :-)
Come on girls, think of it as a new style!
Who will be the first, the second to try it out :-???
Doug -- the future inevitable! :-))
maybe my own turn-on will never be a pool with naked goddess, maybe I hate water because I swim very bad. it's always personal, once we made sex in a forest and if it was with insect sucking your blood from the ass - I'll hate forest photosets forever because my ass will remember this as worst minute in a lifetime
Maybe you are more than a bit sensitive about criticism after all...??? I only give my opinion...not final judgement ;o)
OMG, where do you see my response as for criticism. i only said that maybe something that we dislike based on our experience. NO offense, just a thought in FUNNY* way
*funny became boring or stupid after describing what was funny.
Sometimes you gotta use psychology! :-)
1. this is "indoor pool" set
2. is it also "nothing erotic"? link below:
Reminds me of walking through an art gallery with the artwork scattered across the walls - only this time they're all Astrud!
Stopped me in my tracks when I got to #68 though. Never realized Astrud had those very cute freckles across her nose until now. Was way too busy staring deeply into those big, brown bedroom eyes. Really nice head shots in this series.
One thing I missed was the classic "wet hair whip" shot. Maybe a couple of tries there but not quite. Maybe next time?
Thanks for the nice work - and thanks to Astrud.
Please to excuse my mistake..."indoor pool" it is! Still not erotic...;o)
Two girls together not erotic also...
Two girls together not erotic also...
final verdict. understood.
i think you'll change your mind after video footage of this photoset will be online on RA.
Rylsky, would it be rude to ask approximately when that video will be posted? I've been awaiting it eagerly ~ and kinda patiently ~ since the photoset... ( :
I just answered on RA, copy here: July 2014 on RA
Thanks, Rylsky, I appreciate the information. ( :
#123 is my favorite- with her cute little nose all crinkled up, she's just adorable!
She certainly IS! No arguing THAT point!!
If I could choose any girl, It would definitely be Astrud A. Her beauty is not just on the exterior, but comes from her soul.
Photoshopping is offensive.
she s wonderful, fascinating. I love her. She s the top. My everything, I'm serious.
Astrud is an incredible beauty, and Rylsky has used directional light and shadow to bring it out. I haven't seen shots like this since Voronin did Mixos with Jenya D. Caravaggio must be cheering in his grave, wherever it is.(He died in the swamps of Italy, no-one seems to know if his guards bothered to bury him)This is so beautiful that Astrud(ladies first,and child-like Met members) and Rylsky both get 10+infinity.
P.S. I don't see any airbrushing in shot 59. Astrud is one of those smart girls who wax the undercsrriage and only shave the pelvic area. It advoids a lot of the nasty razor accidents that send young women to the hospital every year according to the CDC
Would you believe waxed AND photoshopped :-? :-)
I don't wanna see either.
Astrud darling, grow that baby out!
When it's smaller than your eyebrows combined, it's too small! :-)
It would look great nice and full, like the hair on your head.
I know, I know -- absolutely impossible to imagine! :-))
like the hair on your head.
My goodness you'd call that a MONSTER bush! :-)))
let's call it Yetishism
)) )) )) ))
She's a sexy little Yeti from the tropics :-))
Sexiest damn Yeti I've ever seen! :D
Some of the young females are pretty hot :))))
Call it her long dark locks :-)
Seriously, she would look great with a real bush.
But I fear the lady is stuck in her ways! :-))
A dyed-in-the-wool bush-reducer! :-)
BTW, I think trimmed hair of Astrud's vertical lips must be my own "Hall Of Fame Trimmed Lips" champion of MA network models.
Astrud's close but my personal favorite is Lorena B. THAT's what I call a well-manicured front lawn! Too bad you don't have her under contract.
Lorena B has more than enough photographers in contract
Yes, I agree, I like her "hairstyle" too. And it's not really the Cup, we easily can let many ladies be champions.
Trimmed Lips = Trimmed Lips Hairstyle
sorry for funny typo. it's Friday and it's Stanley Cup Playoffs games start soon on my TV...
let me say I love her. If to love means to change things and follow only my own opinion by saying "I will love you more with full bush" - then answer HOW she will trust me that I loved her???? If she COULD change it by herself and present - I will gladly approve it as some gift, but not reason to love her MORE.
DOUG, finally, just say you love her (or maybe not), no need to fix on pussy hair, you will spend 99% of your time (minimal) with NO PUSSY near your face if you love her as a woman.
Good point -- I'm looking at most of them as "sexual objects" :-)
More later. I've gotta go check a baseball game -- it's nearly summer! :-)
Shame on me, looking at these girls as sex objects! :-)))
looking at lady as object is no shame if lady agreed. BUT looking on pussy hair all the time is real shame. Hey, Doug, so many parts to love and to enjoy: from her smile to her shivers or warm soft skin... or hands... you know
Oh it's just that she and most of these girls cut off their sexiest feature -- seen objectively :-))))
But agreed. Especially when you know them in person -- as real people.
Lucky you! :-)
Uh Doug ... that's "subjectively" not "objectively" I think you mean to say. Subjectively is based on personal feelings, tastes & opinions. "Objectively" is based NOT on personal feelings, tastes & opinions.
That was meant as a play on words, since we were talking about "sexual objects" :-)
WHAT!!!!, their sexiest feature???
Now I know you've lost it Doug:-)
He's got hair on the brain (kinda like an ingrown hair - bothers the living S#*t out of him). Maybe he doesn't realize how much high maintenance the female reproductive tract is and some women have just taken to remove one obstacle - or maybe he does. Dunno. Always liked a nicely groomed front lawn e.g. Lorena B, but it's not a deal-breaker for me personally.
I know you're into fastidiousness, Arkie, but that hair serves to protect and keep clean that reproductive tract, among other things.
It wouldn't be there if it wasn't a good thing.
And I suppose you're sure to keep your pubic area clean-shaven. I wouldn't bother, tho :-)
Oh, and talk about bein' bothered! :-)))
Not spoken by a true bush-lover! :-)
More than a woman's face, eyes, lips, breasts, derriere, legs, overall shape/proportions, and female parts?
......you find her pubic HAIR the sexiest part of her anatomy????
Doug my friend, you need some serious help:-)
Keep reading :-)
When I'm looking at strangers a lot of things hit me, and if they're not too bad-looking and it's visible I am very interested in their body hair.
It sez a lot to me about them :-)
Among nubile naked female strangers yes I would say their bushes get my primary attention.
Blow your mind? Let it! :-))
Blow my mind???....NO!!!
I pity you.....you poor fellow:-(
Your obsession is troubling:-(
As with all addicts you are in a state of denial, but I fear you need professional help:-)
Doug, "it" doesn't say a lot about them, "it" says a lot about you.
The narrowness of your mind and humanity is troubling to me :-)
Obviously you don't know much about human sexuality!
Keep studyin'! :-)))
....or, goin' where angels fear to tread:
a female-body-fur-lover wanders into a den of depilation-demanders, many of whom are petrified of getting pussy hair in their mouths! :-)))
Off with that loathsome thing, my dear!
Oh, and while you're at it, lop off an ear, pluck out an eye, sew-up your mouth, bust a leg!
Your wholeness is a deadly threat!
And to the Gilette economy as well! :-)))
How come I always misspell Gillette :-?
Doug, Doug, Doug.....why don't you just join a hirsute site?
Instead of all the time and energy you spend on your "crusade" you could be enjoying each moment with your eyes glued to your computer monitor basking in a sea of fur.
You seem to forget that I too like pubic hair, I'm just not obsessed with it.
I love beautiful women. Redheads, brunettes, blondes. Shaved, trimmed, waxed, or natural. Eyes of blue, brown, green, or hazel. I love the entire female and don't fixate on any one particular area of her body.
I believe your efforts are in vain.
While there may be a few who care as much as you do about pubic hair, they (and you) are such a small fringe group that their (your) feelings are inconsequential to the vast majority (and the model also).
I'll try to come up with a better response later, PD. But for now if you like women's pubic fur you should be glad for and support my campaign to see more of it here.
Wouldn't you like to see it on one of your faves who is always shaven?
Wouldn't it be interesting to see her both ways?
That's what I'm pushing for :-)
If my favorite model were on a hirsute site, I would join it.
But she ain't. She happens to be here.
I've always liked women's sexual hair, but I'm obsessed about it here because of how it is disrespected and unloved.
Efforts in vain? Who knows and who cares. I'm just doin' what I gotta do. If people just gave up when they were told their efforts were in vain, nothing would ever change or improve.
The status quo/powers-that-be want people to think that. Fortunately that doesn't stop everybody :-)
You call half the male population (at least :-) a "small fringe group" :-?
Who knows what that number really is, but I would bet it would not be considered "fringe."
The fringe is this place here :-)
Once again Doug, I commend you for your ability to remain civil.
It is quite possible that half the male population is fond of pubic hair on a woman, but I highly doubt there are many who are as fanatical about it as you are.
....and that is the "fringe group" I am referring to:-))
arkie, I also am fond of the trimmed/groomed look such as the one Lorena B. sports in her set "Millora".
Well, who's to say how many are "fanatical" :-?
As I said, I'm having to be fanatical about it here, for political reasons :-))
We all cathect certain things -- I happen to "cathect on" female body hair. Its not all that unusual.
As far as Lorena's trimmed lawn goes -- it's not a lawn, it's a bush. It doesn't have to be cut! :-)*
Interesting too that they're now concerned again about humans "disinfecting" things at their peril -- the natural bacterial flora of our bodies is essential to keeping us healthy.
IOW, being too "clean" can be hazardous to your health.
When you kill off the "good guys"...
So long live hirsute girls! BTW, bad word to describe those who don't shave. These beauties are anything but "hirsute" :-)
*aesthetics aside -- the hand of women is no match for the hand of "God" :-)
I meant photos as well, not real life only. Lucky me? Shame on me if you feel nothing and see nothing to be happy...but on the other hand if you angry and unhappy and said "lucky you"...hmmm... wow, i made you envy me? Great, it means that you feel something and think I save the best for myself and made set of photos public without those golden part which is my private collection?
I mean that when you know or think of them as persons and not merely sexual objects, other things besides bushes come into play :-)
Seriously, tho, everything about the girl I love is sexy to me. Not just her bush (which is sometimes shaved off! :-)
I don't know too much about your golden collection, but I am sure you've got some very interesting stuff in there! :-)))
I really like collaborations between Astrud and Rylsky.
Astrud is so beautiful she makes my heart ache. Beautiful photos of one of the most beautiful models that I have had the privilege to look at. Astrud is the woman that lights up my life.
Can't say enough about her...
Shots 63 and 64 remind me of the "drinking problem" jokes in the movie "Airplane."
Quick first-look turn off:
59's airbrushing. What happened to the pursuit of "photographic quality", Mr Rylsky?
Taking up painting :-?
Another unsharp pussy shot: 109.
Skills can deteriorate! :-)
Bet the imagery of her face is better :-)
True, it's post-production used in this set. True (#59) that it isn't perfect, it is my fault to accept this from our retoucher.
But take a look at yourself, Doug, the only thing you discuss is some photo and not good "photoshopping" in this photo "makes u unhappy"? I understood, but this is set of photos, set means you can see it as a collection. Sometimes it is a some story, sometimes it is just a posing to show to you 10-20 poses...
I am happy that in the final part you did remind yourself about her face.
if the quality of pussy closeups photos was the reason for reviewing this set - I totally agree, this set is not a Maxim's Restaurants VIP menu.
But I hope you once again will look it as a story about some girl and about your time you spend with her. See the difference? No smile on your face? No feel of her happy time with (and FOR) you? Then you can ask for moneyback.
You didn't see my following comment, made 3 hours later?
Scroll down 4 or 5 comments.
Still haven't nearly gone through it all, but so far some very artistic images. And she is looking good.
I just jumped to those pussy shots to check on the progress of her bush! :-)))
I just jumped to those pussy shots to check on the progress of her bush!
Oh, you're naughty! playing "dirty Doctor", right?
I can see it's still there -- neatly shaven.
Hey, at least she didn't kill it all off like I thought! :-)))
All good points you make. From experience, I can tell you Doug will continue his criticisms the way he always does, so really, you can save the time typing and spend your time finding and photographing the most beautiful women on the planet.
Let me tell you that I appreciate Doug's opinion, it was some good inputs from him, maybe just sometimes and somewhere you know another Doug, but I find him mostly friendly and interested in improving.
Constructive criticism! But Red ain't buyin' it! :-)
exactly. the photoshopping completely ruined #59!
Hi geckoman I still only see that astrud waxes. I agree the photography could be improved, but since Astrud is smart enough to entrust her ladybits to the day spa and avoid razor accidents,razor burn,ingrown,rashes etc,I think the problem is mostly in the viewer. So we could sharpen focus?
And don't forget, Astrud is doing this for the money among other things,so naturally she caters to the fact most guys and gals want labia at least,a god hard-on is better(Yes girls get hard-ons,and I worry about girls who don't keep track of the money.
Not keeping track of their money could compromise their hard-ons! :-)))
You can tell when areas of an image have been airbrushed/photoshopped when suddenly texture and detail disappear.
That's what happens to the right and left of her landing strip in 59.
Rylsky acknowledges it.
If it doesn't bug ya, no prob -- you've got a great imagination! :-))
I've seen worse-looking jobs btw -- ones you would have no problem seeing.
Seriously, I don't know what the thinking was there. Maybe to provoke us anti-airbrushers :-?
I'm going through the set from the beginning, and finding some very nice shots, however...
In every pose, Astrud holds herself with such dignity and confidence... one gets the impression she is very aware of just how gorgeous she is. ( :
....and when she breaks out that killer smile... ka-POW!
Astrud certainly does have a KILLER smile:-))
"My baby shot me down"
Yes, another femme fatale! :-)
Aren't they all! :-(
Funny thing is... some of 'em know it... some of 'em don't!
Battle of the sexes/can't live w/'em, nor w/o 'em etc :-(
Yeah I guess I prefer the innocent ones :-)
Usually I would say if they are a femme fatale they know it
and use it if not abuse it :-)))
Astrud is one classy lady! There is not a thing that upsets the balance. Those standing poses are a spectacular show of her lovely firm body. Her legs & butt are absolutely mind boggling and her hair, breasts and overall body tone are top drawer all the way. I love those classic poses on her toes that show off the perfect lines of that superb body. This is a body that was made to be admired and is always perfectly groomed and immaculate. The Greek sculptors would have fought over the rights to carve her in stone for the ages. Luckily we have Rylsky to immortalize this Brazilian goddess for us so we don't have to wait years while they work the marble. I don't think I could ever tire of Astrud. She is our only South American lady but Brazil should be proud of this lovely dream.
Astrud is magnificent! A masterpiece set of images of this gorgeous woman.
Ever since she came onto the scene several years ago she has been one of my top models.....and looking at these photos it is apparent that Astrud has been taking great care of that fabulous body she was blessed with.
Many thanks to both Astrud and Rylsky for bringing such a beautiful sight into my life on this Friday morning.
Astrud has the most peaceful,beautiful face,so relaxed and natural.Looking at her is like listening to Bing Crosby. She enjoys the moment and transfers that to the lucky viewer.
Yikes!! You MUST be 100 yrs old!! LOL
looking at her is like listening to Bing Crosby.
it is mostly A.C.Jobim's Joao Gilberto's and bossa-nova. Music for sunny people even when it is sad as "Desafinado" or "How Insensitive" .
Thank heavens she's far prettier than Bing Crosby. ( ;
"for whom how":)))
Well, for that matter, she also happens to be far prettier than me. :D
nobody knows it. no way to measure what "pretty" is for everybody. Ah, yes, history lessons... somebody tried many times to kill those who disagree what "perfect and one and only", Religion as simplest example: "believe in MY God, or die". Simple, but not working for a long time.
On "pretty" ~ don't worry, I was being facetious. ( :
On religion: I totally concur. I should specify: those religions that claim that they and only they are right and every other way of life is wrong, for everyone.
["nobody knows it, no way to measure what "pretty" is for everyone]
Very true Rylsky.....but certainly Astrud is "pretty" to the vast majority of men (and women) worldwide.
She is GORGEOUS!!! You are one very fortunate man to be able to photograph such an incredibly beautiful woman as Astrud.
You have photographed many beautiful women, but in my opinion, no one is finer than the glorious Astrud:-)
I thank you for this fabulous set of photos:-)
Have a great weekend for all!
In image #106, does anyone else think Astrud resembles Marisa Tomei a little?
I always though Marisa Tomei had a gorgeous smile and I think most of would agree that Astrud surely does too:-))
Objectively, I must agree. Subjectively, I find myself trusting fer_realz judgement on the matter.
Make that two of us Magwich:-)
You two are VERY wise. ( ;
