As a connoisseur of art I can say this looks like some victorian era painting, this piece of art is unlike any other I have come across deviantart. The originality of accessories and dress is breathtaking. Also the model has the classiest look compared to excuses for models who pose almost nüde trying to draw attention. Also the halo is a very important detail with a depp meaning. Superb attention to detail and hard work surely made this one of the best pieces of art I've seen on deviantart by far, kudos to both the artist and the classy lady.
What do you think?
The Artist thought this was FAIR
19 out of 20 deviants thought this was fair.

Almost mono-chromatic, with a cool palette of colors. The lines combine 3rds, interlaced with a Golden Ratio. Center-line from eye, to neck, meets a pop of metallics. The pale skin is given depth garnered from the soft clothe.

A good placement of light from front to back, further enhancing depth with great consideration to the eyes. Halo for dramatic effect giving awareness to etheral, yet, angelic qualities.

5 to the vision, as the composition is rendered intelligently.
3 to the originality. I do feel the entire model and wardrobe missed out.
4 to technique, based upon the standards of close-model photo ops.
4 to impact, because it was a masterful composition of elements.

This is beautiful. I love your work, and it's all so beautiful that it is difficult to identify favorite pieces. This piece made me stop though when I was catching up on my stacks and just... my draw literally dropped. It's so classical in composition, but there's just something about the image that draws my eye and keeps me entranced. Lovely!
