Really nice work Richard, and a very unusual model. My only (very picky) thing is that the wood of the chair is almost the same colour as the model's fantastic hair..... but it's still an exemplary image.

Lovely bit of lighting,great colours.Think it would have been better without the back of the chair behind her as it seems not to 'fit in' with the model & props somehow.
I'm not getting Greek Goddess though...Wood Nymph is springing to my mind,especially with the greenery in her gorgeous hair.

I really like this imaging projection and having a MUA/Hairstylist always makes such a difference.
However I don't think it looks remotely like anything Greek but more like something from 'Orpheus In the Underworld' or 'Midsummernights Dream'. The greek style of hair was always high on the head for the rich/ruling class. Everybody see's in their own way and that was mine Smile and I still like it.
Thanks 4 the share...hope I can do shots half as good as this when I evolve from the neewbie cocoon Smile
