If I had to use just one word to describe this shot it would be sumptuous, I don't, so I can add a few more, firstly, what a beautiful woman, skin as perfect as a peach and her veil adds to her oriental mystery, the statue/face in the background complements her face perfectly, beautifully photographed and an essay in getting the tonal balance just right.
Just one tiny tiny flaw, would be the blemish on the woman's forehead, above the right (as we see it) eyebrow, a tiny touch of the airbrush tool could remove it in a second, though whether it would be desirable is another matter.

A very, very well composed shot, Seb. Congratulations. My only remarks would be there is a bit of obvious smart blur used on the lovely woman face (I assumed she's your wife :-)).

What really draws my attention here is the face in the top left, "veiled" by the black material. It looks like a ghostly apparition. I love the contrast here between the black-clothed lady in the foreground and this ghostly white face in the background. Perfect exposure. Beautiful.

Excellent shot! I love the contrast between the lady and the statue. If I were to make a suggestion - try using Contrast Masking to get a little more detail out of the dark areas in the image... Definitely your best shot so far - well done Seb :-D

C'est merveilleuse. J'aime beaucoup comme c'est compose avec la fille vivant et la masque. (Excusez je ne parle pas francaise tres bien).
