Default Venice Carnival

Here is a photo taken in a 15th century palace in Venice at the time of Carnival a few weeks ago.

I like the use of the mirror to frame her and the reflection as well.
Not my field but the light looks a bit flat.

David.
I do agree that it is flat. This was taken with natural light. The palace was dark and had to use 1600 ISO. The picture below is in the same palace but, I used a softbox to the left of the model. Is that light better?

Very interesting!! I like 'em a lot, especially your use of mirrors. The shadow in the second one kind of bothers me a little unfortunately I'm not sure what I'd have done differently. But overall I love the feel of it. Like a classic painting.Nice.

I think both of these are really quite lovely. I like the costumes very much - how fun! - and the setting is perfect!

If the light in the first one bothers you, perhaps you can fiddle with it in PS?

The second picture is the kind I always want to do in a session with a model. Very nice.
