Very stylish image. Well done on your EC.

quality work; congrats; a bit in doubt about the fourth mask at the bottom; keep on having the feeling there should be either more, or less of it. But quality.

Thanks Nikki, Peter, Nic and Koen. Koen I know what you mean, but I think any more and it would become distracting (cos of the gold) and any less and it wouldn't be recognisable - just some feathers. Just my thoughts.

The fact that I've only just come across this image tells me I should be spending more browsing the galleries to find out what I'm missing out on.

As has already been said, this is a beautiful shot. The colours and lighting are just spot on in this version which is definitely my favourite of the three. But it's not *just* the technical side that makes this image stand out for me. It's the little things like having the model wear a pair of gloves which for me helps ensure the viewer's eye isn't drawn by the model's otherwise bare hands agains the dark clothing (which I would never have thought of Smile)

A belated *click* and thanks for sharing.

Thanks Chris, it's generally the shots towards the end of a shoot that I'm most pleased with, this was pretty much the last shot of the day!
