tell me the truth, are all men or lesbians the ones who pick the nude DDs? they all look the same, a dramatic pose in black and white usually waist up and not showing the whole face

Well, I'm the only one who picks the nude DDs, and I'm neither male, or a lesbian. And that's not even vaguely a true statement about what I feature, but...I've given you an option - you're welcome to send me suggestions of work you would like to see featured, and I'm happy to consider it. Otherwise, there's probably nothing else to say here.

I'm not moved on an emotional level or anything by this photo but I can appreciate that technically, it's a very good photo and it shows a nice kind of tension. And it is refreshing to see a male portrait among all this boobery, and a technically lovely portrait in the garbage heap that used to be the people and portraits section of DA.
So please, be respectful. Even if you don't agree or like the portrait you can respect it.

It's showcasing the beauty of the human body, done in a soft and emotive way. If you don't find it particularly moving, then you don't have to look at this photo, of course. :)

Oh Does it? Does it now? It's a picture of a male body. I might aswell make a picture of my own torso and greyscale it and say "I'm showcasing the beauty of the human body" "NOW GIVE ME A FUCKING DD."

Says the person whose gallery is full of content from other places on the internet, or quick doodles.

You're free to disagree on whether you believed it deserved a DD, but it got one anyway, and many people find it to be a beautiful picture.
I find it moving because instead of being in a stereotypical rigid male pose, it looks like he's relaxed and about to do something. Perhaps if you tried to do a photoshoot with a model, you would appreciate the work that went into this more; it took helping in photoshoots for me to understand portraits like these. They take hours of work just for one good shot! :o

(But if all you're going to do is argue about how much you dislike it, well, I guess there's no point in trying to explain it to you :P)

If there's no point explaining, man, then don't even explain like you are.

Also, I'm not a visual artist. I'm a Musician. I just bullshit around with doodling and stuff on dA. And What you said was low.

That actually might be why you don't see the beauty in the photo that other people see (I don't mean that maliciously, it's hard to express tone through the internet.)
If you're more musically inclined instead of visual, then to you this probably just looks like a plain photo of a dude in a towel, and not an amazing emotive portrait.

And if that's the case and you know you won't understand what other people see in the photo, why comment on it and make the photographer feel bad? The people who receive DDs have absolutely no control over which gallery item of theirs is chosen; sometimes they even remark wishing a different piece had been chosen.

This is the best example of artistic nude photography of the male form that I have ever seen here! You balanced this shot very well, the body is not objectified but shown at it's best... a beautiful model and the black and white tones keep the image classy. I have always preferred nudes done in black and white, there is a mystery about it that prevents the cheapening of the image the way some color photography can.
