Mystical, mysterious and eerie are words that spring to mind when viewing the photo. Very well done. Lighting is also excellent and plays into the mood and feel of the shot. Congrats.

I love the colour and translucence of the veil. Great shot.

Scooter? :D Lovely, moody lighting. I like the flow of the sheet. I think having it go up at an angle more in the corner to fill some negative space may have made it that much better. Something just seems missing that's keeping it from being a good shot to a killer shot.

Haven't voted or even visited the site much in the last few years. This photo makes me glad that I did. Beautiful and a bit quirky and magnificently lit. I hope the blue is a sign of things to come.
