No comments about this one. Just use your imagination; dream on...

I worked with 2 layers:
1. I load the photo in ps, selected the background + body (feather 25x), cut it out and pasted in another layer.
2. I desaturated the second layer (background + body) and added a silver glow (very little)and reduced opacity to 85%
3. Back to the first layer (the shawl), I saturated a bit the colours and added some contrast.
4. Flatten image and voila!

Beautiful picture,I like the contrast between the the skin witheness and the coloured shawl.
Also the position is very tender and feminine.
I look it with great pleasure.

Very impressive work Stefania. Beautiful soft effect you have achieved. Your pp work is exceptional and has certainly made this into a wonderful picture. Well done.

Right clicked - saved. Now... need I say anything more? It is sensuous and absolutely feminine. You are good.

Mademoiselle Stefania !
A beautiful shot and a lot to dream on ...
Your hair in your neck are so delicate. BTW, is that you ? ;)
Congrats for such a soft, tender, sensual image.

Very original and creative portrait! Bravo! Amazing picture!

Nice shot and very good PP. The silver glow brings something special to this body, like I would imagine an angel's skin.

Hello Stefania,
I like a lot the pose of the woman, very sensual but misterious and soft in the same way. Nice touch of color with the shawl in an almost white composition.
Very well done!

precious! wonderful graduation of brightness, colour of pareo and, over all, very sensual atmosphere....great!

Wow, fabulous photo! Your PP work is sensational, could you post the original as a WS? Very sensual photo of your friend with a lovely celebration of femininity.

Beautiful is the word for this image. The spot of colour under the waist and the soft hair at the nape of the neck give it a great power to stir desire and memories. Doesn't matter how you achieved it -- you have created an exceptional photograph.
Wish I had more points to give.

A great photo. It realy looks like I'm having a dream. Exelent PP...

Good Work...
