Grace and Beauty Review

GraceandBeauty.com is a softcore site specializing in tasteful nude photography of all-natural amateur girls. Much like DOMAI (also reviewed here at QAP), Grace and Beauty offers up photographic content (over 16,000 pics) of amateur models (95 of them) with an artistic flair geared toward people who enjoy admiring nude women and not just checking out a chick's tits and ass. As the principal photographer, Jay GreenMan, states on the main page: "This site is dedicated to the fact that female form and sensuality are gifts to be cherished and appreciated". Since my last visit, it looks like they've also added in a handful of videos, which is cool. All of the material looks to be exclusive to the site, although I've seen some of the models on other websites. Anyhow, if you're fan of this genre and are looking for a new site to check out, read on...

The members area of Grace and Beauty has a very simple layout. The main page contains big graphical links to the latest updates to the members area and several links at the top hook you up with the archived content. If you scroll down to the bottom of the page, you'll find a link to their model index which lists all of the models on the site, gives a brief description of them and provides links to their content. Incidentally, Grace and Beauty updates weekly with new material.

Checking out the photos first, they've got a nice-sized archive here with 95 models, 300+ photosets and 16,000+ pics. Navigation is a bit dated here as they have everything set up in frames displaying thumbs down the left and displaying the selected image on the right. Size-wise, the earlier pics are right around 600 x 800 or a little smaller (525 x 700 or 400 x 600), but the more recent stuff is pretty large, weighing in at around 768 x 1024 or a huge 2000 x 1200. The photography here for the most part looks good, although I did find quite a few sets that looked a bit grainy. I think the newer stuff looks better to me than the older sets. As far as subject matter goes, all the pics here are (of course) softcore. You can get an idea of what the models look like by checking out the headshots I mentioned on the free side of the site. For the most part, the girls are young and pretty attractive, although I did see a few that looked to be perhaps late 20's or early 30's and some that I thought were just average looking. Also, the girls here are very natural in their beauty so don't expect any fake boobs or a lot of makeup (some are so natural they don't even shave their armpits, in fact). The galleries have an artistic flair to them, which means you'll see some artsy elements like black and white galleries, soft lenses, and interesting lighting techniques. Sometimes this seemed to get out of hand or came across like the photographer was trying a bit too hard to be "artsy". I noticed some photosets where the artistic elements seemed to actually detract from the model and the photo as a whole. There are some straight-ahead photosets here as well, but the majority of the archive has this artistic feel to it. You'll also find a nice mix of settings for the photos, including both indoor and very pretty outdoor locations (in the woods, by a stream, etc.).

As I mentioned, a recent addition to the site are videos...they currently have 11 available. The clips are all in WMV format and offer a full-length version only. These come in at 640 x 480 at 500K. Most of them look just average and are rather pixelated even at 200%. The newest vid weighs in at 480 x 360 at 1000K and looks quite a bit better than the older stuff so maybe that's the wave of the future, which would be cool. Other than the pics and vids, there a few Grace and Beauty screensavers but that's about it.


Bottom Line
Grace and Beauty has improved quite a bit since my last visit. Although the design is still a bit dated and clunky and it'd be nice to see more frequent updates (most of these erotic photo megasite seems to update daily), they've still got a nice-sized archive of pics to take a look at here. The price here is pretty damn reasonable as well which is always a good thing. For a bit more dough, there are several other sites that probably do this sort of thing a bit better (DOMAI, MET Art, Abby Winters, and Hegre Art to name a few) but if you're a fan of this genre and more specifically, JayGreenMan's photography (take a look at our samples and the samples on his site and see what you think), you should check out GraceandBeauty.com.
