Where art thou

Max Aureli 12/7/2008 9:01:18 AM

There is a lot of drama in her!! The expressive pose, the wonder look in her eyes, wound in a mantel and the backdrop really excellent for the scene!!!

It is another fantastic work, Jennifer!!! Great photography well done orchestrated!!

Congratulations to your work.
