    Terrific lighting and capture of the model, love the costume and makeup. A really great image. And since you did ask, and since I don’t know what the background was before, may I say I feel it’s a little too close to the figure for my taste. If she’s going to swing that crop (not that that’s what you intended), she’ll hit the ‘canvas’, but in any case I feel there needs to be a little more depth behind her. What do others think? I might be completely off the mark here, so please don’t alter anything on my account.
    :) Cheers, Carol.

  • Hey Carol, I always appreciate critique so I do thank you for taking the time to comment. The previous background was more of a misty plain and she seems to be floating so I decided to create a ground for her to stand on. I started out with a background further back but it connected with the top of her boots so I decide it is better to drop the back line lower which does make it appear closer. :)

    P.S. I like the ‘floor’ and stripes. They’re a great off-set against the skin-tones and deep burgundy of the outfit.

  • Thank you Carol, I do appreciate your time. :)))
