I don't like this one much right now. I was going for a more transparent effect. She's supposed to be a young elven girl who died in an attack on her home by some demons. Her parents were enslaved and she haunts her home and surrounding wood waiting to be reunited with her family. The photos were taken by me, except the picture of the little girl (my niece). I have both the written permission of the photographer (Denise Brown) and my niece's parents to use this photo.

I think it looks good...So sad...I want to give her a hug if she wouldnt blow away...

:-) Jodi K. Shaffner replies: "She does look sad, but even in her hauntings her sweet, precocious nature endears her to all who meet her."

Wow this so beautiful - and so sad. There's such a strong atmosphere in this picture. You're really talented. Well done!

:-) Jodi K. Shaffner replies: "I am glad you like it. I wasn't sure if it really portrayed what I wanted it to, but it seems to do the job."

This pic has a wonderful, mystical quality...if you'll excuse the pun, I'll say it's a haunting image *smiles*...Great Pic!
