The photo itself i outstandingly beautiful. It reminds me of old gipsy paintings. The light, the colours and th gracefulness of the model all makes this a great photograph. But, the frame must go! It compeetes with everything else in the photo, and gives it a disturbance it doesn`t need. Just my oppinion.
Tastefully done and executed. The grace/expression of the hand combined with the glance in the eyes speaks of a mood that is fathomless and is interpreted by our own minds. The frame to me is not distracting...it adds a level of almost Victorian depth to a very un-Victorian subject. )) A refreshing juxtaposition.
