oh no , I got it was a mirror ;)
From your last 10 photo posts, this is my favorite. You have achieved a look of your own. With the smooth textures and tones of your images. Congrats on the top5. ' . substr('//www.dpchallenge.com/images/user_icon/21_F.gif', strrpos('//www.dpchallenge.com/images/user_icon/21_F.gif', '/') + 1) . ' Silverfoxx also has the delightful smooth textured look but different tones, which are also wonderful but they are her sort of trademark and the warmer ones here are most of the time, yours. Beautiful lighting, setup and PP here.

Great atmospheric image. Love the softness lower in the shot, and the sharpness of her features. Not sure that the bowl with the giant marshmallow in it adds to the shot much.

This is a great shot. Like the soft feel to the shot. Lighting is right on and the sharpness is right on where it needs to be. Great composition also.

Oooh. That certainly is beautiful! Enchanting. I love the antique feel to it. It's very old world and striking!

Pretty, soft image. The whole scene is very nice. I think I'd prefer to see less of that mesh material on her it's a bit to much, perhaps just draped around her shoulders and not all the way down the front.

That's really lovely. The lighting and softness are flawlessly done.
