It’s no secret that there are some truly gifted nude photographers on 500px. It’s not for everyone — seriously… you might want to put the kids to bed — but a quality nude photograph is a work of art… and a lot more than a simple snapshot of an attractive person naked.

The mood of the photo, which can range from playful to steamy sensual, is shaped by the photographer’s skill with light, composition, posing, and so much more. Additionally, the photographer has to be able to keep her or his model comfortable in front of the camera — a more challenging feat when few, if any, clothes are involved.

The photos that make up the Top 10 Nude Photos of 2014 on 500px each offer something different. From the suggestive, not even technically “nude” photographs, to the intensely sexual, there’s a bit of everything. If you’re not at work, go ahead and scroll on down.
