Playing with masks. I really like this one (hope you do) and have put it at the front of my new fashion portfolio, which is building up nicely. As ever please view large.

quality work; congrats; a bit in doubt about the fourth mask at the bottom; keep on having the feeling there should be either more, or less of it. But quality.

Thanks Nikki, Peter, Nic and Koen. Koen I know what you mean, but I think any more and it would become distracting (cos of the gold) and any less and it wouldn't be recognisable - just some feathers. Just my thoughts.

The fact that I've only just come across this image tells me I should be spending more browsing the galleries to find out what I'm missing out on.

As has already been said, this is a beautiful shot. The colours and lighting are just spot on in this version which is definitely my favourite of the three. But it's not *just* the technical side that makes this image stand out for me. It's the little things like having the model wear a pair of gloves which for me helps ensure the viewer's eye isn't drawn by the model's otherwise bare hands agains the dark clothing (which I would never have thought of Smile)

A belated *click* and thanks for sharing.

Chris
