So Serene

By Lillian  
Even the sunshine here has given a shimmer

Taken last week in Venice in the good company of Jenni & Bob....Alison & John
a really great week with so much going on sadly though at moment cannot
process all my photos as cannot sit long on computer, really painful!

Thank you all for your caring messages yesterday...really appreciated
special thanks to Kathryn, Carol, Steve and John for your User Awards

"Wow" now that is a quite special costume. The soft pastel green hues working beautifully with the fine golds and silvers.

I love the image on a whole.
I do find that Red brick work a bit distracting.
May be tone that area down to a mono or a hint of colour.
Every thing else is spot on.
Magic work.

Such a beautiful and humungous costume. The sun shining on it looks like gossamer. Do hope your back is better soon, how awful for you.

Bit of a weight to carry round all day on the top of your head! Must have the neck muscles of a pro wrestler!
De-saturate the red brick a tad and its perfect, Lillian.

A beautiful costume. The light is a little harsher in this image which gives the dress so much vibrancy. I was going to suggest de-saturating the brickwork but I see Graham beat me to it.

Silvery-gold and blue, what a lovely combination, far more subtle than a lot of the others.
Her headdress reminds me of a Victorian sofaGrinGrinGrin!
