This was really wonderful kind of light that have came in! That woman looked like despair but yet beautiful to glow her soul. I loved her dress and how she looked. It was like a bride in the chao and similar as you described this picture. Wonderful color of contrast like a little sepia along with golden warm colors. You do have an amazing skill as a photographer!
this is an awesome shot. a friend of mine and i talked about doing something like this recently, with like a beautiful perfect bride and some tragic scene behind/around her. it's a great contrast. excellent work.
