Bonjour Romain,
Je suis surprise qu'une telle beauté en suspension dans l'air n'ait pas encore recueilli de suffrages !!!
J'aime beaucoup les tons et la composition.
Toujours ton style ...
Bravo !
Sylvie

comme l'indique Sylvie, le style Green... C'est beau et très bien réalisé... Peut-être qu'une compo différente aurait plus attiré... J'aurai peut-être placé la statue plus sur la gauche... à voir :D
