Wonderful portrait. A great example of the beautiful and tasteful vision of La Esmeralda, the model, when she is designing a concept for a picture. I like a lot the angle of the shot. I think that it helps to increase the impact of the photograph. The selected location is elegant and spectacular, definitely it gives the proper ambiance for the effect. The wardrobe is nothing less than extraordinary and when it is used by a model like La Esmeralda, its visual value increases at maximum. Each element of the picture was carefully chosen and all together make a masterpiece of art.

The outfit is very well done. The black lace was used to the best effect without being over used. The choker is a nice contrast; being more straight laced than the more intricate brocade on the bodice. However, the parasol does need to have some sort of lace accent like all of the other pieces for it to work. The tiara adds a very refreshing sparkle to the otherwise matted effect of the satin(?) skirt. While it would be nice to see a more vivid coloring to the roses in your hair, to contrast with the rather subtle colors of the dress, I like how the current coloring of the roses matches the gilding around the painting and the sash inside of it.

As far as the photography work goes I am not well versed in that medium, so the only thing that I can recomend to change is to make sure that the mirror is clear unless the green thing in the mirror was intentional. As wonderful as the outfit and the scenery are what makes this truely intriguing is the offset of the camera angle. What would have been a merely pretty picture became beutiful when that technique was employed. Cudos.

Teuerste, würdest du mir verraten woher du den schönen Rock hast? Ich bin seit ewigkeiten auf der suche nach einem bestimmten Fishtail Rock und der sieht so aus als ob er der wäre den ich suche *g*

Den hab ich mir von meiner Freundin *Aurelia-Isabella geliehen, ich weiß aber leider nicht woher sie den hat =/
Auf natronundsoda gibts aber eine einfache Nähanleitung für nen Fishtailrock, vielleicht wäre das auch etwas für dich ;)

OK, everything here is gorgeous, but how is it even the umbrella is possibly the most beautiful I've ever seen, too?! Great work modeling here, you look wonderful. Such an amazing job on the makeup and hair.

hihi thank you very much:)
Actually I had the impression that this umbrella was just as old as the whole castle but I really like it, too :)
