Remove these lights,and it would take on a much more sinister appearance.Shades of the film, The Shining perhaps ??
Nice one.
And an image that can make a very interesting ''play'' with !!

A popular image and deservedly so, but I'm just thinking I'd prefer this in portrait format to place more emphasis on the figure and allow the viewer to see more of the "magical" background above the figure. A bit much "wasted" space each side at the moment.
8 Sep 2009 4:25PM
Yes possibly although I only took this one on landscape and there is no other info. I tried portrait and Mikbees idea of just leaving it as it was, but once I start fiddling I can't stop until I get told to go to bed. Besides she started to pose after that.

This is an enchanting image - closed in space which I think hints at the confines of childhood and having to go to bed etc etc (which I think you may loose with portrait format - which would open up the composition and not keep the backdrop contained and merely hinted at).

If you'll excuse the pun, this is a 'rights of passage' image for me, thats how I read it anyway - but I guess it can be read in so many ways and that's its magic.

A stunning image and just magical.
A tiny thing and maybe just me, but I'd tone down or remove the two prominent sparkles from her cheek and underlining her nose.

Stirs many a memory. Would have been my son with the torch reading through the wee sma' hours. He still recalls it from time to time. Your image is a real delight and wonderfully & artistically created & presented.
