Lingering Elegance by lorrainemd Lingering Elegance by lorrainemd
This was shot for a store of a friend, Ana, who has a store in Philly.
I loved this shoot! The clothes were amazing, the house was perfect, the model elegant and my team extraordinary.

It's all in the details. Styling is everything.
Romance is not is just hiding.

the furniture, the clothing, everything compliments the other so well in this photograph. The colours are divine, and the way the model is sitting is beautiful.

It looks like her fingers are taking her down a sensory stroll down memory lane... it reminds me of something... perhaps a song...

Lovely work. The muted, subtle colors look really good. Great set-up and detail. The gentle lighting looks good.

Its a great shot. I'm jsut another old soul who wished we lived 'back then', but neh. I would have added more...maybe it would be more mysterious if it were in black and white...I dunno but its missing something.

shelikesnice Featured By Owner Oct 9, 2005
I love this shot. I feel like going up to her and telling her it's ok, and he is coming, eventually, just so her heart doesn't break.

Although, she already looks content and reassured.

Very graceful shot.

I would also love to paint this one day. Please get back to me soon. Every Wednesday is my painting day, and right now I have nothing to paint!
KristinaGehrmann Featured By Owner Jan 1, 2005  Professional Digital Artist
This is a wonderful photo... You don't see things like these often here on DA.
Anything seems elegant - the woman, her dress, the candles, the piano, and even the composition and the soft light from the candles.

This is worth a favorite.

This is, my dear, one of the most beautiful photos I've ever seen here in dA.

So emotive and so delicate... sweet... pure.

As a classical musician I absolutely love the feel of this portrait. The colours and tones are lovely and she's got such an elegant look on her face but she's relaxed in her settings. Very nice :+fav: I just can't take my eyes off the photo!

oh my god... that outfit is amazing. lol. VERY nice shot. This is one of my faves.

This is gorgeous! The colors and composition are perfect.
C-Novack Featured By Owner Dec 10, 2004  Professional Photographer
All the details in the objects and subject really make this photo wonderful. The dusty pale rose color of the subject's dress summon the ideas of delicate femmine innocence/beauty and the cut of the dress invokes the movie star glamor of the 30's and 40's (Jean Harlow and Rita Hayward [link] come to mind). The single lock of hair that falls down to frame the face has always been a signature that projects innocence and beauty; why that is pychologically that is I don't know. Her fingers casually linger over the keys as if reminiscing over the lingering music/music of a bygone era. Her expression is calm and serene but she has a slight smile on her face that makes you wonder what little joy is she smiling about. The lighted candalabra on the piano also invokes the imagery of "timeless elegance". Well done photo.
goddessofthenile Featured By Owner Dec 8, 2004
Wow. Thats all I have to say. Love the elegance, the softness of the textures and colors. That dress! That piano. Great job.

Beautiful. Even that KKK guy on top of the piano is pretty, and that's scary!

So sumptuous and feminine and gorgeous. I love the limited colour palette, which gives such class to this. And the model is just :drool: drop deap gorgeous. My favourite thing is the sheen of the silk. :heart:
