    I'm intrigued as to what #2 is. There's the whiff of a bordello in these shots. I'm seeing seduction, passion, mystery, and I think #2 is an egg.

    Excellent shots.

    From the same stable as this, which is still one the most outstanding images I've seen. I love it, both for its simplicity of idea, but also its style and execution. And it, too, reeks of seduction, passion and mystery. Apologies if that seems a sexist remark. It's meant to be a constructive comment, albeit from a male perspective, and not something salacious.

    Donald, that is actually my all time favourite by a mile. It just works for me and I intend to get it framed. Clothing can be very seductive and suggestive but I wanted to try and prove that it can be these things without the cumbersome human form. A female member of another forum found these images seductive so it works both ways.

    Rob, the ball is in fact a miniature space hopper (some promotion or other). I think you are meant to squeeze it to relieve stress...ohh, err madam. Red (particularly this red) and black are suggestive and the roundness of the ball meeting the cloth was inspired by my wife's frontal feminine attributes whilst sleeping on her tummy. (I may be a northerner but I am not crude enough to use the vernacular)

    Very nice focusing and color contrast.

    Seduction and passion are two-ways streets. The jeans & jacket above show that quite clearly. If you are male, you no doubt "think" a female out of them and vise versa. Unless you swing the other way, of course, but the principle is the same.
    Photos are meant to arouse emotion in us, unless they are destined for an engineering catalogue, and these of Steve's do that for sure. My only tiny change would be to have one of those shoes lying down, suggestion a little more abandonment.
