What an amazing face, and an incredible effect of the lighting as well. It looks ghostly, dreamlike, ethereal. An excellent shot - I like this very much!
Thanks for sharing

Tiene algo de fantasmagorico con esa luz especial y ese gesto desmayado.

Hi gundega
that's just wonderful,
how do you get those beautiful background textures?

hi gundega,
eerie and mysterious. i like the lighting and composition. tfs.

I find this photography really splendid. All is there: a beautiful model, a good framing, an environment emphasized. In short, nothing to repeat, congratulation.


very horrifying potrait. IMHO this is a superb detailed portrait.

Lora Palmer? They found her? Such a sad story ...

Fantastic effect of playing DOF by throwing arms in the background, so the focus is on her plastic, doll like expression. I say doll-like, though you obviously attempted to hint at death. However, keep in mind that dead (or drowning ppl) do not stare straight into the camera. Shifting her head on the side, as looking into emptyness, would enhance the feel much more.


the model reminds me Scarlett Johnanson ; )
In sepia tones, it could be an ad for the Dior's perfume "J'adore"
