This is beautiful! I love how it looks like a combination of a modern photograph and an old fashioned portrait.
You have really great attention to detail, with the color of her fingernails and the title of the book.
I also love the way she's standing. It makes it look like she's just stopped short. Her hair is still moving behind her, but she's not moving any more, almost like something hit her in the stomach. And yet, although the way she's standing seems like she should be distressed, her face is very serene and resigned.
Overall, it's a very powerful piece and I really like it.
What do you think?
The Artist thought this was FAIR
3 out of 3 deviants thought this was fair.

Simply an outstanding image, everything about it is clear, defined, "Classic". The colours and textures are superb and it's narrative is beautiful. I love Photographs that use props, in this case the book, "Goethe's Collected Works", it gives the Photograph a timestamp.

I especially love the backdrop to the image, it makes the image more detailed, a simple background would not have been the same. Even the frame gives it a historical feel.

I would not change a thing about this, the model is naturally beautiful, her poise slick and pretty, her clothing attractive and well designed. Her hair flawless!

Well done!
