drop dead gorgeous of a drop dead gorgeous lady. Superb work. I, like others here, would have given it a Spinal Tap 11...

Oh, BTW... I'd love to know something about the lighting set-up.

Can't find a thing wrong with this and find it refreshing.
She has a very nice smile, and though posed, seems very natural.

Very nice composition. Like the angle of the hat paralleling the sweater.
