Expertly lit, but for me you have gilded the lily twice over - first with the face-smoothing which leaves her with little skin texture, and second on the framing effect. Sorry Don! It shows great skill, way beyond what I could do, but nevertheless I don't think it quite works.

Looks like something made of plastic, sorry.

I like it but dont think it needs the square frame.

It is very weird, a gothic futuristic mashup. 19th century meets 23rd century. The extreme smoothing leaves a very ambiguous feel, is the subject real or not? And those contradictions are I think the strengths of this image and the reason I keep popping back for another look.
You can see some of my photos here if you are so inclined

Actually you could be onto something there Doctor O.

The image unsettles me, but if that was the intention, it's a success!

She looks like a porcelain doll!! Look out Vogue!!

I was actually contemplating turning the skin tones wayy down to near white to completely get a doll like look, but I have a strong tendency to use warm tones... it was a tough choice but I opted for something I think she'd like more.

I appreciate all the C&C guys. thank you....

She looks more like geisha than goth
Nicely lit though
It's the photographer who takes pictures, camera is just a tool
