Beautiful, I love the softness, too red? I dont think so, being picky I would consider a tighter crop - just off the top but otherwise its just lovely.

Beautiful, stunning shot. The colours are great. The photo looks like an old painting which is truly amazing.

I was using an ISO of 1600, hand held in a church where the only light source was the windows. Fortunately for me, the biggest window was right over the font. Many thanks for your comments.

Normally I would say too much red but for some reason it works on this shot to its advantage. It gives it a feel of the old master paintings and this works a treat.

I agree that a little off the top... would help it. Just a side note, if that button was not there you couldn't tell what century this picture came from for me Smile (PS not saying remove it, I like it as it holds the bottom right for some reason well)

OK enough for me, suppose you got the idea I like it Smile

Beautiful image. As has already been said many times it has a timeless old master look to it which is very appealing.

Her coloring is gorgeous & looks like an old masters painting. Did you have a lot of noise to remove at such a high ISO?

Hi Hazel, I didn't remove any of the noise. I think that's what gives in the painterly quality that it has. My 5d performs well at 1600 ISO which always helps. Thank you, and thank you everyone else for your comments
