I find this an overall an exceptional image. The colors all seem to flow into her face which has prominence in the photo. The only thing I do not care for as this is a critique and there is always something that could be done better, is the shadow behind the chair and the chair has some glare from the flash that distracts. Both of these should be easily corrected in PS or whatever you use to edit. I find this image extremely pleasing and am jealous that I did not take or think of this myself. The green color scheme really works for me. If the model had red hair, then it would really pop for me.
What do you think?

Magnifique, une Reine sur son trône, une photo qui fait rêver. Très bon choix des teintes mordorés. Et quel regard. Bravo!

I find these pieces exceptional. I was wondering what do you do with your pieces? I do a version of this type of artwork, and I show it and sell prints. I wonder if there is a better way to utilize my art? Do you simply do it for the art of it?

thank you!
well, I do a lot of work for designers but this piece here is just something that I always wanted to do and I made it for the art of it. one day I might sell prints but am a bit too busy to think about that at the moment...

Love the expression and beautiful materials. The contrast between the beauty of the model and the gauntlets is a wonderful bit of deadly edge to her. The colors are great and composition exceptional.

The lighting is fantasti in this photo! This was obiviously thought out well in advance. Everything comes together perfectly!
She is beautifull and intimmadating at the same time.Not someone you would want to cross.
The Queen issomeone with a lot on her shoulders. She wants to be alone with her thoughts.
Fantastic work! To everyone who had a hand in this series.

The gloves are comically big on her hands. Still very good though.

Auch ich finde es sehr gelungen. Wahnsinn!
Faszination Esmeralda:)
Eine Frau, 1000 Gesichter!
Da zur Zeit ja Games of Throne sehr im Gespräch sind, eine Neuauflage von Merlin gemacht wurde und natürlich Der Herr der Ringe immer noch präsent ist, triffst du mal wieder exakt den Trend und den Ton, der angesagt ist!
Das ganze Styling, die Pose und natürlich die Bearbeitung sind wie immer exzellent und klasse gemacht!
Und zu guter Letzt, ich finde Krone und Handschuhe geben dem ganzen die nötige Schwere, untermalt wunderbar den fantastischen Blick!

Grüße:) und :+fav: natürlich auch

*Deep curtsy* My Queen have a melancholic look today, should I bring musicians and jugglers to entertain Her ?.... or perhaps bring Her the pretty bunnies Pearl and Zelda, they always seems to comfort Her!
