Shannon- Beauty to behold. What a fanatastic pose and the work you did is so classy. It elegant, beautiful, and yes even sexy. Love the tones, almost reminds me of a heightened sepia look. Fabulous composion and DOF. I love the slight tilt of the head and the eyes looking up and out to the side. The lighting incredible.
Elegant, beautiful, breath taking work. #6674901
