Lilian is very, very lovely, and I enjoy her galleries quite a lot. Thanks for sharing so much with us!!!
As to the whole sand issue, while sand is not a problem for me personally, I would agree that it certainly adds nothing, which at least raises the question, "why bother to do it". I think perhaps it's a thing some photographers do because they've seen other shooters do it and they think perhaps it must be a good idea simply because they saw someone else do it ... sort of like those ridiculous straw cowboy hats so many American photographers put on otherwise incredibly hot women. They add nothing, but somehow, from some people's point of view, it became a "thing we're supposed to do" with attractive women.
In the end, I guess I look at it this way: (1) I rarely if ever hear people commenting "GREAT use of sand on the model's intimate bits", (2) I OFTEN hear people complain about it, and (3) though I'm rather neutral on the whole topic itself, if it annoys more people than it excites and perhaps actually excites no one ... maybe it's a practice we would be well advised to let go.
A very lovely young model with a fresh and natural beauty reminiscent of a young Demi Moore (before she got into the bodybuilding and big hair). I agree however that the sand is unnecessary – as are the sunglasses which partially cover her gorgeous face.
Lilian A, wonderful girl.
Shaved or not shaved, please, trimmed it 's never nice
Lillian: two thumbs up.
"Casual" cute shots fully clothed, both thumbs up because it gives us a better "feel" of how the model is in real life, and besides, she's just so damn cute!
"Bringing the indoors outside" by using a lacy teddy rather than a bathing suit on a beach shoot, two thumbs up because it's fresh and novel, the photog is obviously changing it up a bit and though I'm no big fan of outdoors shoots, I like the originality.
And besides, the teddy's so damn sexy on Lillian.
Sand on the strategic bits?
Two thumbs emphatically down.
I'm sure it happens all the time in beach shoots, but I don't want to see it -- the thought of the feel just jars me out of my pleasant reverie and makes me physically wince.
Just one more reason to dislike outdoor shoots, IMHO.
(This is no negative reflection on Lillian, just on this particular aspect of the shoot.)
It would seem that no one at Metart is listening to comments about sand and they are made every time a model is portrayed anywhere near the damned stuff. For Gods sake, LOSE THE SAND!
Well with the sand and her stubble we know there was no photoshopping. One of the problems I had when I was doing this type of photography was that with a darker haired model who's collar and cuffs matched, any stubble was obvious. That is one reason waxing has become derigor. And the closer you get to gyno shots the more obvious it becomes. Sometimes the camera sees more than the naked eye observes. And in most cases the lens is closer than my eye ever was. On one hand we bitch if the photo's are enhanced, on the other hand we bitch if any perceived flaw is exposed. I personally had my makeup, in my case, woman check and have the model re-shave, if she thought it was a distraction. Believe me thos shots aren't as easy as you would think/or fantasize.
It's unfair to the model to subtract points from a rating due to choices made by the photographer. If you don't like something, you can say so. But the ratings only tend to reflect on the model's overall rank in these pages.
I give Lilian A high marks for her beauty.
Sandy labia has to be mentioned, though: please don't mix sand and tender bits...
I would love for Alex to give us his opinion on this.
I rate the set on a variety of things with how well the model is portrayed, not really with her beauty. Much of that is due to photog decisions with location, background, lighting, poses, and even sand in vulva. I'll admit that general appeal of a set is an influence, but I try to keep separate my opinion of the set from my opinion of the model. The model's expressions and general state are things that the photog may not have much control over and vary from set to set, should be considered here as well.
The model has her own area to rate, when you click on her name above it takes you to the model's page with a separate scoring.
That said, I do enjoy Lilian, but don't think that this is her best set. And the sand in her vulva is only one reason why.
Ok Kilroy I am wondering this. We are a one member-one vote site on both the model overall and any set. I would assume most members give an overall Model rating either after the first published set or at least early on in a career. Do you ever change your overall after your reaction to the newer sets. To give an example the "presenting" set gets say an 8 from you. Her next three sets are fabulous and you give each set a 10. Do you then go back and change the overall vote to a 9 or 10.
I have done that before, yes, but not often. Some models have had a slow start (IMO), some just start hot right off the bat. It may sound weird, but sometimes a model's standing with me can improve ever so slightly with a different photog.
BTW, thank you for your comments under Catherine's Nastya set the other day. I added to it if you wish to go back.
Did as requested, Good addition. Thanks
Scored lower due to outdoor setting.
Some nice poses and perspectives in this set. I like the interplay of sunlight and shadows when Lilian is lying on her back in the sand with her legs wide open and her knees up and no sand on her moist labia! Nice!
A lovely lady but please don't cover that delicious pussy with sand.
SO GORGEOUS LOVE HER NATURAL BEAUTY
