I like the mood, the use of selective colour and toning, the eye contact, the whole composition and the inclusion of the birds a lot. Not quite sure about the hair over her chin - maybe a little more of it would make it look more natural (though it may be natural!). I think I would definitely darken down areas of the right hand side - the brighter horizon lifts the mood in a non gothic way, and also draws my eye away from her face. More of a vignette, maybe?

thanks Sue
the hairs natural-ish and quite red, i think, it could be a wig i never met her before this and she had the cloak on and i asked her to pose for me. it was just has she had it, i think it just happened to pull across her chin when she turned. it wasnt the same of some later frames but the expressions were not right by then.

i agree about darkening down, this was pretty apparant when i did a test print.

I like it, but being familiar with the location Wink I think the scale looks a bit wrong.
