I always find La Esmeralda's portraits visually pleasing!

The combination of excellent photography, moody, melodramatic editing, stunning costumes and the gorgeous La Esmeralda make for a breathtaking piece!

I think that the title of this piece is very appropriate, though, I would have select something a little more melodramatic. Something with a hint of modern Gothic mixed with steam punk with a dash of the Victorian era...

Also, I find that the pose that La Esmeralda is in makes me rather uncomfortable... I don't know whether this was the intention? I would consider having her leisurely sit in a wingback chair... Or why not change the environment entirely and have a photo taken with a black horse out in the forest?

A wonderful piece! Congratulations! :clap:

This is a lovely portrait, quite distinguished and stylish. The dress is delicate and refined. I like a lot her pose, it gives me the feeling of dignity, of aristocracy, sure of herself to the world. A simple but correct background with the objective to giving enough light to the model for showing her dress but avoiding to get attention from it. A remarkable work of make-up. I love the whole concept of making like a circle or oval form around the model, in that way she look even more impressive and beautiful. Extraordinary combined work of the whole team to obtain this artwork.

Mylady, ihr seid wahrlich eine der schönsten unter den dunklen Blumen!

Mir gefällt das Bild super.
Abgesehen von deinem Hammer-Outfit finde ich mal wieder deinen Ausdruck toll gelungen. Schön, geheimnisvoll mit diesem Quäntchen Gefahr!
Auch den Bilderrahmeneffekt mag ich sehr, da er wundervoll zum Gesamtbild passt und die Eleganz deiner Pose und Kleidung noch einmal betont.
Und da ich detailverliebter Mensch bin, muss ich doch noch den Nagellack hervorheben, der durch das Schwarz um ihn herum sehr schön zur Geltung kommt, die Farbe ist echt schön:)
Dass man deine tollen Haare hier nicht in ihrer ganzen Pracht sieht ist in diesem Fall zu verschmerzen, denn die streng hochgesteckten Haare passen diesmal einfach besser zum Gesamtwerk! :thumbsup:
