Her hair is B-E-AUTIFUL! And her overall physique is beautiful; I like the...is it a sheet? Well, whatever it is, I'm glad it's in the picture because it would look like something were missing without it, I think.

The image is divine, but I'm wondering if the posterisation effect seen happening to the background was intentional or an unintended consequence of the workflow? I'm personally finding it a bit distracting.
