I do like your image a lot and I can see that it must have taken a long time to compile: an image that stops one in one's tracks.
Look forward to further images from you.
And welcome to the site, Joan.

Welcome to Ephotozine - hope you enjoy the site and many new friendships.
A fantastic image which I can see must have taken a lot of effort.
It's a pity this is your first as it takes time to build up connections who will regularly see your work.
I'd repost this when you get better known.
However I hope some members spot it from the thumbnail as I did.

Thanks Kate for the advice it is kind of you to take the time to contact me Smile.

I have lots of pictures of this nature (no pun intended) so hopefully so hopefully if I keep posting them I might get noticed as time goes by. Thanks again Smile

Many hours very well spent. The backdrop for your portrait is perfect, interesting but without any distracting elements......the model's eyes are beautifully captured and what can be said about that hat.............words cannot describe it.
A fabulous creation and I really like the birds and butterflies escaping from it.
Very artistic creation indeed and can't wait to see more of your work.

You're a true artist, Joan, welcome to EPZ.
I think your work will be very appreciated here.
I was surprised that you call yourself a beginner!
There is so much work in that hat, I keep seeing things I haven't seen before.
I love butterflies and like the way you use them as a trail with the ribbons, with the little mouse watching them fly away.
The backdrop is very attractive, and not intrusive, and your model is beautiful, with nice sharp eyes.

Thanks Tony. It is a brand new image so will see how it goes... I found out it was awarded a HM at Bristol and scored 15 so really happy with that. Fingers crossed for its future Smile
