And thus her beauty fades by lorrainemd And thus her beauty fades by lorrainemd
She weeps as her uncultivated inner beauty

external perfection of youth.

Resubmit because DA was behaving badly.
Lighting: 2 point flourescent
Model: me
Going for the ambiance of an oil on canvas.

Oh My Goodness, it has been ever so long since I have seen such a brilliant picture, decorated with such striking colours, that leave me awestruck in front of my screen and full of wonder :wow: :faint:
The use of lighting and composition in this photograph is absolutely amazing, and I really love the soft curves of her dress.
She looks ever so lost :kiss: I adore the creepy feeling it has.
Extremely thought-provoking :blackrose:

piqueassiette Featured By Owner Nov 17, 2003
This is my favorite picture in your gallery. Mainly because of the colors I guess and the strong impression of lost hope. This is a very expressive picture.
s-a-i-n-t Featured By Owner Nov 16, 2003  Hobbyist Photographer
beautiful, sad and full of emotion. Her right hand seems limp but still grasping for something. Wonderful tones and the red dress definatley catches the eye. Good contrast. :+fav:
toxicdevil Featured By Owner Nov 15, 2003   Filmographer
Wow, what a beautiful peice! I simply LOVE the red gown; it works amazingly in this photograph. Where ever did you find such a place to shoot this? The floor is perfect, just the over all composition of this is really impressive, I think it really does express the title.
