Shot after dark, lit model with headlights, converted to B&W in CSPS3, added a starrry sky layer.
Model is Tiffany in her wedding gown, looking beautiful :)

Had to do a little re-edit. Thanks to Nikki B. and Datha T. for the suggestion of a larger moon! :)

I think this is wonderful, Jean -- the pose is lovely -- especially like the rippling shawl. Great moon, too :) #8948507

This is my favorite of your October entries, Jean. It is romantic and dramatic all at once. I also think your portrait of Ella is just adorable -- great light. Good luck in the contest. #9034250

The body of your model is in a perfect 45 degree angle to the camera and is the way that all women should be captured as it is THE most flattering position. That, along with the lighting and clarity of the image, is the reason this image is so stunning.

Well done, Jean!!! #9078717
