this is just a comment on the "human form" idea... i prefer a title such as
human form or figure and not the use of the word nude, because i really
don't want all the people who search the net for the word nude necessarally
dropping in on my site. in my own gallery i've gone out of my way to avoid
the use of the word nude for this reason. i have paintings and photos of
unclothed people on my site. as it is, the photos get more hits than
anything else because they've gotton cross-linked (without anyone asking)
on several photo sites.
just my 2 cents!
