Looks like Her Majesty could do with a hand down the stairs! I mean, My God what is that incredible dress your are wearing? It looks like it was painted on!Heart

It is a latex dress and does't only look like being painted on but also feels like it :)

I've had this in my favourites for a long time, and going back to it, I've finally figured out what's wrong with those stairs.... I believe this was taken with a very wide angle lens and then post processed to remove distortion to make it a portrait shot (and rightly so) however it left the stairs on the outer most part of the image distorted beyond being repairable. This is not a criticism, as the lens was most likely needed because of space. I'm just glad I finally get it now since owning a fish-eye lens myself and having this problem. The fact is I have had this in my favourites since forever and I still appreciate it. Never delete your old work :heart:

Overall a great picture, I agree: an amazing dress, you look fab. I love how your pose reflects the curve of the staircase. My personal issue with the picture (if I may be so critical! :D) is the use of the texture/the lines that overlay the picture, I think it works well but not how one pattern has been applied to cover both the stonework and wood. My thinking is that if the filter was applied to the two materials separately with masking then it wouldn't be so obvious as an after-effect :)

thank you very much!

actually, if you'd see this photo on canvas the effect would be that the canvas looks old and scratchy which is pretty cool - the photographer uses this technique pretty often and I really like her way of editing ;)

Congrats to Darkview for a wonderful composition, and just what is going on with those left hand stair legs? Are they built like that? The way you lean into them makes this such a wonderful mind bending shot, and the flow of curves throughout this photo is genius :clap:
