Spectacular close up! If you ever doubt that La Esmeralda is a queen, you can be sure now watching her with a crown ;) This is a great close up. The angle of the shot is extraordinary. There is no questioning about the remarkable photographic work here, since as you can see, there are blurs where the right call is to have blurs there, and you have a clear views of the details where the right call is that one. The pose and facial expression of La Esmeralda is priceless. A real warrior queen, beautiful, strong and powerful. Excellent make-up, the precise job to obtain the visual effect. A masterpiece of art.

I looked into your eyes and fell...:faint:

This is a truly stunning portrait; the costume, the jewellry, the lighting, are all impressive but they are but details--your gaze is what makes it all real! I have sixty words left, but they will not do justice to this magnificent image, unless I put some of them in verse:

Ravenna, Esmeralda, Queen
Of Midnight Beauty; cool, serene
Enchantress of the Faerie Realm--
Upon thy head a crownéd helm
Of dragon-gems that glint and gleam
Like starlight from a distant dream...

Needless to say I am going to go straight to your gallery!!!
