That's a special image.

Got the glow to a T

I heard somewhere a long time ago that the effect was got by smearing a thin layer of vaseline on the lens. Life is so much simpler now...

That's one of the loveliest burlesque-esque photos I've seen in a long time!
Here's a thought on glowing with a period look in mind and I can't tell whether you have of haven't at this res... Once you add glows and blurs in post production it actualy destroys the natural grain quality and makes it look 'modern'. I think the old soft focus filters would have been used on camera, thus leaving the film grain intact. So... have a play with re-adding a minute grain once all processing is done. If you've already thought of this, I shall place my head in a bucket of water Tongue

Great image and B/W edit, it would seem that portrait, and studio work is your forte from your PF pics. Not sure if the glow makes the shot?, but have to agree that a little grain can add to the Burlesque theme if doing another edit? Congrats on your awards, well deserved. James Wink
