Not an easy shot with the lighting but I think this is stunning.

Another image of an angel..the light pose / warm color of the dress / light in the hair / and an expression that longs for a kiss.

Great lighting and pose from the model. I do feel however that the branches behind her head look a little silly, i would have either moved the model to another position or tried to move the branches.
Congrats on the HC

G6DDs,

The model was moving doing pose after pose and I was shooting fast. I got various shots I liked and this was one. I didn't put her there. I didn't even notice the background until somebody mentioned it. I really don't care for comments like this because I upload photos that are finished pictures that I like. If I wanted it differently I would not upload it and say it's done. I don't know why lately everything I upload I get comments like "great but it's a shame about the stairs. crop that out and it would be fine." and "nice but too bad it's ruined by the eyes try again" I don't have money for that. I upload pictures that are finished pieces for people to enjoy not tell me how they would have done it differently. If you want to do it differently get a model and try it. Sorry, but I've had so many comments like this lately I was holding that in for a long time.

freybird,
thanks

I was having a similar problem while setting up for a show i did a number of years back. I too was a bit frayed by several "this is NOT the way it should be done" advisers . A good friend ,now departed, took me aside and gave me this bit of wisdom.."YOU are the artist--if it pleases you all is well. If others happen to like it-so much the better" I have never forgotten her or her words
