While I love the image, and your work as the model, the motion blur and what I assume is lense flare is too distracting to really appreciate the finer details to it's fullest.

That being said, the outfit is brilliant. There's so many layers to it that the viewer can look at it multiple times and discover something new, like the pattern, the long flow of the train, and the feathers.

It all perfectly accentuates the you. The darkened fabrics and accessories, the dark trees bring out your amazing features of your face and hair, allowing them to shine without distracting.

Aside from the foreground noise, it's an amazing shot!

"Who is this Goddess and what the hell is she doing in my Garden. " Well you could be forgiven for asking such a question. The fact that we have a few little light flares on the lens and she's at a distance, so we don't get a clear look at her, works in the photo's favour. I can imagine the gardner, toiling away in the late-afternoon, thinking of knocking off work and sinking that first beer. He rounds a large hedge of flowers and out the corner of his eye, he get's a glimpse...He trips over his feet and stops in his tracks..."Who is this Glorious creature? It's broad daylight, so she's not a Vampire. She's a little too well dressed and she's not cavorting about, so she's not a wood Nymph. Can't see if her ears are pointy....could she be Fae? She's certainly Beautiful, richly attired. Though she'll have to be careful with the train of her dress, it might get caught on something. OOOHH, those leg's! I'd better be on my best behaviour, she may be a friend of the Lady of the House." Yes we could be forgiven for asking ourselves such questions. But who could blame us when confronted with such Beauty.

Wonderful fashion sense, glamour, bodylanguage, photography.  Ah you present a damsel no mythical beast or legendary warrior could resist. :)
Love it.

Breathtaking, stunning, I am nearly speachless by this photo. You are gorgeous, you could truly cause Aphrodite to doubt herself in jealousy. The entire content of this photo blows my mind, the entire scape seems like it was spirited straight out of the mythical Elysian Fields.

I cant even properly put into words how much I like this shot, It reminds me of what I picture Persephone returning from the underworld would look like. All of the colors and contrast  & lighting work and play off of each other so well this is a really amazing piece of Art.

I am a fan of your work. That being said, I am not a fan of this shot. The composition doesn't read well for me. The glare effects don't work for me on this work. They fade the colors and dull the shot. You have such vibrant colors in the garden as well as your clothing, I would have liked to see the colors pop more....
