One of the best images I've seen on here in ages. Had I not given a user award earlier this evening this would have received it, I dare say I will be back!

I love the use of strobes, the heavy shadow areas, the rim lighting, her expression, just superb, will take an exceptional image to beat this, this week.

So beautiful. The black costume is gorgeous and the lighting superb. A reclining swan. I love the detail on her back.

My favourite photo since 00:00 Monday, didn't even see your name before I voted - no favouritism involved, honest! Well worthy of a GE to add to your mases of User Awards...

Excellent shot, and a beautiful pose. I'd prefer to see a little more light on the side of her head, rather than her back, but sometimes you can't help things like that. Well done.
