    I don't think you will shot down for your thought lovingnewtoys. You have a right to say how you feel.

    Everyone is in for a chance of winning and even tho I have mentioned a couple of photos I liked over the last day or so. I don't like saying what I like and I feel could be the winners or runners up. What people say on here as there favourites lovehoney could have a completely different view.

    I just ask that others feelings be taken into consideration.

    I am also aware that I have mentioned peoples pics by name but usually just saying how much I like their shots.

    Now standing by wall waiting to get shot down!!

    I don't think anybody means they're better than everyone else when they say there's a potential winning photo, but you can tell some people put lots of time into setting up shots and getting the right lighting and stuff like that and they want to give them credit for it :) I for one, do not mean to offend or cause upset! It may be best if we think about how we word things a little bit better and simply compliment the shot instead to avoid anyone feeling like this.

    Everybody has just as much of a chance and just cause the forum members think a shot is a winning one, doesn't mean the judges do! It's not about winning anyway, it's about showing off the lingerie and feeling good about yourself! I'm glad you've found some confidence to post through Lovehoney, that's lovely to hear :)

    Well that's two bullets dodged - thank you. Xx

    I was actually physically shaking writing my original post - a mixture of feeling 'not worthy' and fear of forum wrath, then I went and hit send!!

    I do understand what you guys are saying but personally it just took me straight back to 'they are so much more attractive you'. Not a nice feeling.

    I apologise if taken in wrong context xx

    As said before I think most people look at the "picture" over the "person" so while I or whoever says: Wow, great picture by xxxxxxx for the most part it's the picture being praised not the model. Kudos to you for posting however, my wife will not let me post her full stop hence the googly eyes!

    Bondage god - aye that makes sense ladt day of the month for last enteries, then the good folk of Lovehoney get time to gchooseo through them properly and pick. I wonder if its a vote or if it's Nicole alone who chooses
    💟xx
    Violet wolf - I agree with about the pics but there's a couple more lasses that I reckon are up there too.
    See, I could tell by your reply. You're absolutely beautiful and I know no matter how many times you hear it you'll not believe it as that's how our mind works with confidence. I reckon you'll gain confidence from keep posting pictures, as the forum will always compliment you when you post them and you'll grow in confidence as others have.
    I know I should just whip him into submission, hehe 😈 😏 He'd be like "take everything, put the pictures up, but whatever you want just please stop ass shopping me lol 💟xx

    +1 that's the nail on the head. That's exactly how it's viewed, it's about the capture of the shot. Not "mmm look at hom/her their stunning". Also I love your pictures they're always good. Also as Nat said nought to apolagie for 💟xx

    No need to apologise lovingnewtoys.

    No problem mummymermaid.

    Nicole left last month slinkyblinky. I often have wondered how it works if it was just Nicole on her own picking the photos or if she gets a few opinions from other staff.

    Wow, I hope you don't think you shouldn't bother- your pics are stunning! They're so well composed, your posing rocks and I love the edits you do. You always highlight the details on the lingerie you're wearing really well too. Your photos do exactly what the MOTM judges are looking for- they showcase the lingerie in a tasteful yet utterly gorgeous way. It's not about the models body, it's about their ability to show the product well, and I think you do that perfectly.

    Although I must say, I think you have a gorgeous figure as well as awesome artistic flair! :)

    Just a note to every past winner and runner up- Congratulations! You've all managed to take some stupendous shots and I've never seen one I thought undeserving of the prize. Keep up the good work! :D

    Coming from someone as stunning as you are I take your comments as a massive compliment - thank you. I do try to advertise the garments as best as I can (they are so pretty after all), as I mostly post pictures at the same time as I submit a review to give prospective buyers an idea of what the garments look like on a 'not so perfect' figure!

    Sorry again, confidence issues raising their ugly head again, and I had been doing so well
