Thanks for all your comments on my last upload very much appreciated.

A change of century in terms of outfits in this one. Lots of great textured walls around in the place, so had ot use them.

There are more Victorian theme images to come but just like the soft tones and textures in this one.

Model is Fredau H.
Light: a single off camera flash fitted with a beauty dish and a half CTO gell to give a bit of warmth

Thanks for looking.

Regards Richard

Tremendous shot once again, Richard. Flawless technique and lighting as always!

My only small niggle is that the shadow of her shoulder is just slightly cut off at stage left. Perhaps it could have been better to include it? Just a thought...Wink
