||+British Columbian dynamite beauty Autumn Riley, a sexy model who has a lot of presence in front of a camera
+Photos are quite professionally done in image quality
+Photo galleries are at least 2000 pixels on the long end, if that’s the only size
+Most shoots are done indoors where the lighting is easier to control
+Videos are H264 mp4’s at 1920x1080, and are downloadable, but see the cons
+Fast download speed for videos (around 4-500 kbps)
+Navigation is easy and intuitive
+Fairly simple and straightforward design
||-No zips for the photos
-Doesn’t allow download manager to grab pic batches
-Photo size selection varies a lot depending on the gallery. Sometimes they’re only 2000 px on the long end. A small handful are only 4000. A few have 1200, 1600, 2000, and 4000.
-Videos are jerky on playback, at least on my system, both streaming and downloaded/offline
-Videos come in only one humongous size
-Updates content once a week; it’s growing slowly, currently with 36 photosets and 20 videos
-Calendar doesn’t indicate when future updates will be posted
-Blog hasn’t been updated since May this year
-Visitors don’t really get enough of a preview of the site content
||Autumn Riley is both the model and, from what I can tell, the webmaster of this site. She’s also really busy, it seems, going to college at the same time. AND she’s a smokin’ beautiful 18-year-old with lustrous dark hair and dark eyes; as for the rest, I don’t believe it’s possible to be disappointed. She’s a got a couple of small tattoos, but they are placed tastefully.
She poses mostly in bathrooms, on living room couches, in beds, in the kitchen, and on a boat. She often gets completely naked in the photo galleries, but not always. Usually, she poses solo, but there are a couple of photosets and videos with a female friend.
For a site that is amateurish and inconsistent in some ways, the quality of the photo content is really high. It is better-looking content than I’ve seen at some of the more “professional” sites, with no shirking on file sizes, either. The 59 photos I saved of her “Blue Tank Top” strip in a kitchen take up 287 megabytes of storage space; that averages 4.86 megabytes each; it was one of those that was only available in the 4000 pixel size. And the 2000 pixel photos will average over a megabyte.
I’m not complaining (my hard drive can handle it), but prospective members might want to know.
So what’s to become of Autumn Riley? Will she continue modeling? Will she start appearing at other sites? (I’d love to see her at TorridArt, for instance.) Will her own site get a new infusion of energy and attention, and start flourishing?
Or will Autumn keep her glasses on, not to take off during a photo shoot, but to study even harder and get through college and on to a career doing something else, and live on in Facebook/Twitter obscurity? Could this be one of those sites that comes and goes, the kind that winds up with that “no longer active” notice at PU?
It’s anyone’s guess at this point, I’d say, along with “Might Recommend,” as long as you don’t mind saving the photos of Autumn one at a time.
