Johanna asked about the lighting. It's all natural. The setting is a barracks room in a reconstructed fort; the day was bright. She is facing east; I'm shooting west. Behind and above her is a narrow, horizontal, slot window (about 12"-15" high and a good 10' long). Behind me is an open doorway and another open window, this one more "normally" sized and shaped. She was sitting well back into the room - probably about 2/3 of the way back from the door. I did lighten her face in post.

Thanks for sharing how you did this. Itís truly an exquisite portrait! One of those times when nature just makes everything perfect! No surprise that it is a ribbon winner. I was thinking it would be blue. Congratulations.

I'm not voting in this challenge -- because I have an entry here, but this should clearly be the winner! The light, the composition... it's exquisite!

Marvelous.
It seems to me that I saw the girl before; such a lovely, lovely gentle soul.
You gave justice to it
