Taken indoors using natural and artifical light. Painted my daughters feet and decorated them in the fashion of an Indian bride. Think some people may not consider this \"footwear\", but I do think it is within the challenge boundries.I love the weirdness of the picture and think it may appeal to the senses. Cropped, resized, hue, sepia, lighting, noise,usm.

cant make out the colors but an Indian bride will never paint her nails black. Infact very rarely you will see any indian wear black to a wedding.

nice take ... I really loved it.

The process of applying the Henna is called the Mehndi ki Rasam. Its a whole day affair ... one of the many ceremonies before the day of the marriage.

Congratulations, this was the clear winner (no offence to the others). Your daughter should get a present for being such a great model...sensational!
  Photographer found comment helpful.

Thanks to everyone who voted in this challenge and especially to those who voted for mine in a favourable way! And to everyone who commented - a big thank you.
Also big thanks to my daughter who at 12 was very patient as I spent 2 hours doing her feet up.
I decorated them as an Indian bride would do on her wedding day. I used liquid eyeliner rather than henna and jewellery.
It's fantastic winning my first ribbon!
