Wonderful. Has a dreamlike feel to it. Is it worth darkening the sky top left a bit as the highlights compete for attention a little with the girl. Just nit-picking, because this is great.

This is a very happy image for me. I wonder if a tighter crop or one that has the shadow in the lower right would work. Still, quite good.
Best, Bill

I like this a lot, except for the fact that it is giving me a crick in the neck as I want to mentally straighten the walls of the buildings.

I guess using the perspective tool would completely lose the building on the right, so would probably ruin the rest of the image. Would be interesting to see one as a comparison though.

absolutely lovely, what you would like to see in a good wedding book, a bridesmaid on her own.

thanks a million!
interesting how a holiday shot can bring out emotions in people who were not there...nice.
mission accomplished!
I had her running back and forth a few times, because the warm evening light was kind of was one of the hottest summers in recent north Italian history, but lovely!
beautiful place

Wonderful shot.

I love the intensity of the light, the way it illuminates the way forward and yet still gives good emphasis of the subject. I love the subjects casual over the shoulder glance and the spring in her step. For me the angle of the buildings works brilliantly adding a strange almost quirky fantasy factor and all the while the subject is perpendicular suggesting that it is the surroundings that are not as they should be...

All in all a very magical capture... the sort we all dream of taking !

Great work.

riverspidey: thanks! this is natural light yes, the hour before sunset in this area is beautiful....
the darkness you refer to is an added vignette, to further enhance her path, and into her face.
