||-2500 models (no silicone), 24750 photo sets, 2,690,000 photos, 7835 videos. -80% exclusive (see bottom line).
-Many attractive models and lots of total stunners (but I do not like more than 10% of the models here or anywhere else).
-10 softcore photo sets per model per photographer per shoot plus some hardcore.
-Many repeat visits from models.
-Photosets in three resolutions (Not all on older sets): 1024, 1500-1600, 3000 with full and custom zips.
-Updates: 5x12 photosets (80-200pics each) and 2x14 videos (10 to 20 min ave 15min each) videos per week. i.e. 60 photo sets and 28 videos per week,
-Videos in several formats, inc "HD mp4" (1280x720 @ 6Mbps. 1920x1080 starting to appear) and streaming.
-Good model directory and search facility.
-Opt-in for newsletter and promos.
-Customisable for viewing sizes etc.
-Works with Firefox and DownThemAll and FDM (see Reply #1).
-Bills via CCBill - no regional pricing
||-Links time out after a few hours.
-Some technically flawed colour (but most is good).
-Size not indicated on video download links. So, if you go for "HD mp4", you do not know if it is 720p or 1080p until you have downloaded it.
-Pages can be very slow to load, especially the thumbnail pages, but zip download speeds are good. It is best to choose 20 thumbs per page rather than "all".
-Although download managers are allowed and work fine (tested with FDM), see Reply #1 for some cautions.
- No "mature" models (but site does not claim to have them)
-"Themes" such as "Lingerie" or "Uniforms" are incidental, not central.
-Some non exclusive content for some photographers such as Fred or Defrancesco.
||ATK Galleria (ATKG) has been my "gold standard" for about 12 years and it still is. There are a lot of statistics in the pros and cons, above, so it might be more useful if I explain here why I like Galleria so much.
I collect photos and I see it as primarily a photo site, despite its huge number of videos. Nubiles is stronger on video quality. If you prefer softcore teen video, with masturbation or toys, and are happy with 4 vids per model, Nubiles is the place. You might come to ATKG to add to those.
As far as photos go, ATKG operates in the same general genre as KarupsPC, KarupsHA and Nubiles but it has generally better quality and a very much larger quantity: four times as many images as Nubiles, twice as many as MetArt. It seems reasonable that signup gives you access just to ATKG and not to the ATK Network.
One thing I really love is the many repeat shootings for a lot of its models. You get 10 softcore photosets whenever a photographer shoots the model. If she is shot again, and she often is, you get another 10 photo sets. Those may be from the same photographer a year later or from a different one. Hardcore sets, if any, are on top of that count. Riley Reid, for example, has 43 photo sets and 9 videos here. That is 13 hardcore photo sets plus two separate shoots of 10 softcore sets from one photographer and a 10 set shoot from a second. Her videos span the same two photographers and include toys, hardcore, lesbian, behind the scenes and a camshow recording.
All photo sets for each model go up between one day and a week apart. Videos are less predictable and not all models do them.
Of the nearly 25000 photo sets, photographer Fred's 1600 sets and Denys Defrancesco's 1000 sets are largely not exclusive. But the rest are, as far as I can tell. So I guess 80% exclusive overall.
ATKG is nothing like MetArt, Femjoy or any of the artsy sites. Shoots are amateur in style, professional quality but not glossy. Girls are committed and enthusiastic and engage with the viewer. Some toy use but most sets do not involve toys. Almost all start clothed, if sometimes scantily, and end full nude but sometimes get there after 20 images of a 150 image set. The journey is less important than the destination at ATKG but you do get some tease in most shoots and explicit shots with direct eye contact, provocative facial expressions, minimal looking down or away and plenty of finger spreading pussy.
There are "themes" such as Uniforms, Lingerie, Upskirts and Panties, Babes, Amateurs, Coeds, Masturbation, Toys, Foot fetish, Nudism, Lesbian, Watersports, Action. But some of those are pretty loosely defined. I often cannot even tell what the softcore theme was when I look at the downloaded set.
Take lingerie. The girl may be wearing some under some everyday clothes or she may start in it. She strips via a short tease but without the emphasis on the sensuality of the lingerie that you would get on a fetish site.
ATK's tour gives away a massive amount of actual content. Click the "visit site" link from this PU page, go to the bottom right of the page you arrive at and click the ATKingdom thumbnail. It takes you to their free site on which you will find about 80 full size (3000x2000) images from Galleria, 80 from ATK Hairy and some from Premium, all from their most recent sets and changed every week. There are no sample videos there, suggesting a bias towards photos. At the top of the page from "visit site", you have the whole model directory, which shows how many photo sets and videos every model has.
ATKG shows the work of 97 photographers from around the world. Its women are shaved, aged between 18 and 45, but most are young. There are only 15 models aged over 30. 1300 aged 18-20, 1030 21-23. Some models have tattoos or piercings but there is no silicone here. Most are Caucasian girl-next-door types (only 5 black and 11 Asian) and there is a separate site for ethnics - ATK Exotics - with a separate subscription. Some of the Galleria models also appear on the other ATK sites but without duplication of actual photo sets or videos. e.g. she might be shaved here but have hairy sets on ATK Hairy. Note that, if a model is on ATK Petites, membership there gives you her Galleria content too. But not vice versa.
I highly recommend ATKG as a large and high quality source of explicit softcore photo sets, in overtly sexual and amateur (but not amateurish) style. It will specially appeal to anyone who wants everything they can find of a loved model. I believe 96 is valid for what the tour area makes clear you will find.
But if your main thing is softcore video, score 86. There is bg and gg but it does not come over as a hardcore site. If you prefer those, score 80. And there is none with a story line here. It is plain sex. As I am not interested in bg, gg or video, it is hard for me to evaluate them. If you want fetish themes, score 76.
I have joined many times over 12 years. "member < 1 month" applies just to this join.

||-- Extremely large amount of photo content.
-- High-quality photos/videos.
-- Outstanding site layout and user interface.
-- Custom features--user-defined zip files, preferences, settings etc.
-- Daily, high-quality updates.
||-- Could use a little more diversity in ethnicity(latin, afro, etc.)
||I would classify this site as tastefull and traditional erotic nude photography. There are hardcore photo and video sets but the main emphasis is on erotic/nudes and exposing the model's natural beauty. No extreme stuff here and everything is in good taste.
Most of the models are of the young, early twenty-something variety. Although the majority fit a cerain profile--thin, well-toned etc, you can find a large diversity of model types spread around the very large number of photosets, once you discover the search feature. This is one of those sites that could keep your interest for quite a long time. There is no way you could manage to get through all of the content in a one-month period.
The only thing lacking is a more diverse representation of ethnicities. If it wasn't for this, I would not hesitate to give the site a perfect score.
The site layout and design is about as good as it gets. Serach utilities, custom zip downloads, and a number of other features are available. Everyting seems to be where it should be and you won't get lost in the large amount of content available.
The videos are of high quality and available in HD, but the emphasis is on photography. The quality of the photography ranges from semi-pro to professional, with most belonging to the latter category. The technical quality of the photos themselves ranges from eye-popping, HD quality to so-so, depending on the skill and experience-level of the photographer. There were times I was thinking, 'I would love to see this or that photographer shoot this model.' It is hard to classify this as a negative, however. It is unrealistic to expect every photoset and photographer to meet one's own personal demands regarding tastes and likes.
The number of photographers is also pretty diverse and you get a good range of styles. You can use the search function to display all sets from the photgraphers you like. In fact, there is so much content that, after a while, you can pick out the photographer just based on poses, settings, lighting, etc.. Most of the photographers seem to be into their work and are not just running around with a camera, trying to churn and burn content.
You will come across a few poorly-done photosets(blown-out images, overexposed, poor lighting, etc). But these are usually older sets and are the rare exception, rather than the norm.
The content is mostly unique. Although you will find a number of professional models here that you have seen elsewhere, the majority will likely be completely new to you.
The only people that probably would not like this site are those into extremes, either in model types or images. There is hardcore action, but no action like atm or other in-your-face kind of stuff.
This site is definitely a photography-lovers gem.

*Newbie reviews and ratings don't count toward a site's overall score/rank until the user reaches the Rookie status level (5 points). This rule is needed to help prevent fake (or heavily biased) profiles and reviews.
