Great image. It somehow manages to look awkward but natural and beautiful at the same time. The selective softening adds a lot of atmosphere too.

This is totally beautiful !!!! Where'd you get that dress?
I'd be very suprised if this doesnt get lots of recognition. Captivating!

Lovely, magical, and a fantastic creation... except for the shoes. I think fairies should be bare foot.

Very nice effect. Almost like diffuse glow, but more subtle.

Thank you, Jouko Smile

Thank you, Bill Smile

Thank you, Ron. Agreed Smile To tell you the truth I thought a fairy would fly out of a tree and not climb down, although Jordan did as graceful a job as anyone given the circumstances (ie me taking pictures and not being at all helpful). Why have wings if you're not gonna use 'em, eh?

Thank you, Gerry Smile

Thank you, Jules. The dress and white corset were both Jordan's own so I'm not sure where she got them Smile

Thank you, Rodd. I agree Smile

Thank you, Geraint Smile

I think I need a whole day to go through your portfolio, I love every single photograph you have taken. I read your 'About' section, and was expecting you to say 'I have been a professional photographer for 10 years (or so)'. I really think you have the gift to go pro! In which location did you take this photo, you have taken so many photos in so many beautiful locations, but at the end of the day, it's how you capture your models in these locations that makes it beautiful.

I look forward to your next photograph.

Thank you, Taya. I suppose I try not to interfere too much at the picture taking stage and just let models do what they like...which means I have to find models who are happy to work like that (ie without direction) and that's often the most difficult thing. The locations are mostly local. This shot was taken in some woods in Horsham Smile

Thank you for replying! I find it very difficult to take photos of people, and I've only directed my friends on three different occasions and I can't say it's easy, it's a but like being a puppeteer with a few missing strings! The locations look very fantasy like!

Thank you, Taya. I'm starting to think I need to direct models more. I also think I need to plan shoots rather than leave everything to serendipity. Of course the problem then becomes one of how to plan and direct without being influenced by others. You see so many portrait/beauty/glamour shots that are fundamentally the same Smile

Thank you, Glen Smile
