Danf, I had not seen this before. Isn't she just a LOVELY young lady? You did her proud, she seems to fit in perfectly with this nostalgia concept :-)

This really does have an old world charm about it, and I like the processing very much....

Both images are gorgeous! The hair clip was the only thing that gives this away as a modern portrait. Very nicely done! I bet there are some old family photos to compare to these. Might be fun to see the similarities over the generations.

Beautiful, this was my choice for blue but glad to see it in the top 20, I really don't understand how it didn't ribbon though!

Quite well done except for the cropping of the dress (fairly minor) and the hair clip. So many entries tried to replicate an old photograph, but this is the best 'replication' I've seen so far.

Came back to bump this up! Beautiful composition and execution.

1880ish victorian nailed it. Great pose too.

Excellent! I'm almost fooled into believing this is an antiquated photo... but the hair clip.

Finally!! someone who actually read the challenge description, instead of just turning any old shot into a brown picture!!

Quite simply the best image in this challenge. If this doesn't ribbon, I'll never visit this site again. Good Luck

Feels like it came from many decades ago - nice. Well lit and with a suiting pose. Wish there was more depth between the background and subject though - to make it a bit more blurry.

Pretty amazing... she is beautiful and the portrait is perfect!

Lovely shot, great pose, model and clothing! I just wish the background was out of focus as it is distracting. Fook it, I'm giving it a 9 anyway.

Perfect shot for this challenge! Wonderful background, lighting, clothing. The hair clip jumps out as more modern that everything else. Also, I wish the dress didn't cut off at the bottom of the frame. Great shot!
