If I had to look back on every image I have captured in 2012 I would say that this is my absolute favorite! I am in love with the innocence and the magical feel of this capture. As soon as I saw this costume I knew that this is what I wanted to create. I had the final result in my mind and I was itching to get it captured digitally. Thanks to my mother for suggesting the wings. It just added the extra mystical element to the final result!
This is my entry into Rock the Shot's Favorite Image 2012 Contest. For more information on the contest, visit their forum at www.rocktheshotforum.com!
I processed this image with Paint the Moon's Luminosity & Artisan collection: Deep Rich Matte, Earthen Ruby Vignette, Vintage Vanilla, and Whispers along with some hand editing.
