This is my youngest daughter and a hat the belonged to my great-great aunt. The hat is roughly 30-40 yrs. old. I tried to use some lighting effects when shooting this photo. Adjustments in brightness/contrast; desatuation, levels, slight curves, and cropped.

Not sure about the texture on the wall. Since I am so familiar with that sort of wall texture and associate it with mundaneness, it spoils the illusion a little. But otherwise a fantastic shot. Congratulations on a 6+ score (that's quite high where I come from :) ).

Not sure the title says anything about the picture: with all that make-up she looks far from innocent? Like the composition though.

nice, only thing for me is the shadow and the brastrap. it's little details but they do determine my vote.

Love the classic net hat. Wish it were a little lighter.

Just a little lighter would have been awesome.

Very good focus and crop, bringing attention to her face. The background wall doesn't help much: it's shiny and rough, oposite to your subject matter, portrait as shy and delicate.

Beautiful soft lighting and wonderful textures. I especially like the interplay between the weave on the veil and the wall.

wish the background was different ... the textured wall is a bit distracting ... great photo though ...

This is a beautiful idea. I would scoot her away from the textured wall, intensify the lighting, as the existing is making the overall shot flat. I'd have the strap slid down so that you only see her shoulder.

great shot...Horrible background!

A little too dark I think. There are no details left in the black at all and the wall, which I suppose is white, looks more like gray. Besides that I like it - and the title fits perfectly.

...oh, a minor detail: You should have had her take down the strap on her shoulder to get it out of the way.

Unusual and very nice. The model resembles Britney Spears (hope that's not an insult ;-), it's certainly not meant to be).

Ooow I love the model and every thing about her...but that wall.....

the image has a dark feel to it. I think a brighter background would have helped.
