I love the shots that you have uploaded of her before. This is another superb one. She looks so at home in this setting. Props and clothes fit perfectly and your lighting is spot on. She looks very sophisticated, and so I'm not sure about the fiddling of the beads. Speaks to me of a lack of confidence which doesn't quite fit somehow - but we all see things differently

Love the pose and lighting, the holding of the beads with the slight bend of the wrist is excellent body language, she looks so confident that she could be at home in Buck House.

Perfectly posed for the idea in mind, Rich. The absentminded playing with the pearls, the slightly faraway look and the pale skin of true aristocracy. It's all there, and the setting, of course.
