Greetings from the Critique Club... (better late than never!)

I think the light and warmth offered in this image is extremely nice. It tells an interesting story of a young girl getting lost in her own world of dress-up and make believe through the clothing, doll, and other associated elements within the field of view. Images like this one aren't easy to do on a compositional level. The complexity of this photograph reminds me a lot, oddly enough, of some landscape photography where there is so much going on within the image that the viewer is just allowed to get lost and enter the world being offered by the photographer (or painter or whatever other kind of artist might be involved). The difference between your image and others that I consider to be overly complex is that the detail comes together in this photo to support the overall theme and idea being presented. This photo really does remind me of a lot of victorian-age paintings that I have seen. It's really nice work... Keep it up :)

A really beautiful shot, even more so considering the minimal processing. You really did paint with light.

I just realized I had not checked on your picture.
Congratulations to the new PB. It certainly has the attributes of a classical painting.

Very nice period piece. Feels Rennaisance to me. Good use of light and dark to focus attention.

Absolutely lovely, gorgeous deep rich reds, she looks like a princess and the lighting adds so much to the mood of the shot. Could be a painting either way a work of art. A 10 from me.
