awesome photo . awesome light .
she owns her look
November 9, 2011 at 7:56 am
Tell me, is this happenstance or did you ask her to move into that light, because the light is gorgeous on her!
The pattern! And I love how the light fell perfectly on her face. I wish I could see more detail of her bottom, though.

A la Vermeer?? Her face, the lighting, the rich colors. Gorgeous photo!

It’s look like Asian style…great light photo.

OMG JADORE!!! Les fleurettes reviennent comme avant.
She looks old and young at the same time. This timeless look makes me think of an old film that never goes out of style.
Elle est jolie!

This looks like a Vermeer painting. This is the most beautiful image I have seen in so long.
November 9, 2011 at 8:34 am
Such a Beauty! Her outfit is charming, especially in this location! Well done.
This picture looks like a painting. It is amazing.
November 9, 2011 at 8:40 am
Beautiful colours and light. She looks like she’s from another time.
November 9, 2011 at 8:44 am
Delightful… perfect lighting..and her floral print compliments her complexion and hair color.. such a fresh young face..
November 9, 2011 at 8:49 am
What incredible control of light!
November 9, 2011 at 8:50 am
Seems like a french painting…
November 9, 2011 at 8:51 am
This is a fantastic photograph: the light, the person, the black flowery dress as opposed to white flowery. Wow!
November 9, 2011 at 8:52 am
This picture and look look like from an entirely other era… the light does awesome things to the colour of her dress
Such a FANTASTIC photograph! Absolutely one of my favorites of yours. You totally nailed it Scott. Totally!
AMAZING PHOTO!the light is just great! http://styleflakes.blogspot.com
November 9, 2011 at 8:53 am
what a wonderful picture!
i am not a celebrity
Flowers and mood. Spring meets Autum. Delish.
November 9, 2011 at 8:55 am
I love her mix of patterns, mandarin collar, and slightly messy hair!
The ‘unintentionally’ put together….
November 9, 2011 at 8:58 am
She looks like a painting, that’s true..!
November 9, 2011 at 9:01 am
This is India, isn’t it? She has an amazing look, but this is the third time I have seen her on this website. Great image all the same!

November 9, 2011 at 9:11 am
Yeah, @ Lola, definitely the colors and the saturation mixed with the hard focus on her face. This is a beautiful photo. I love it.
November 9, 2011 at 9:12 am
Nice clair obscur that really puts emphasis on the shirt!

November 9, 2011 at 9:19 am
Wonderful light, wonderful portrait, wonderful photograph. Love it love it love it.
November 9, 2011 at 9:23 am
The lighting in this shot is wonderful, very dark and moody. I’d say Dutch School but not Vermeer. Beautifully done.
November 9, 2011 at 9:24 am
she looks like a victorian lady….. Elle est tres belle!
November 9, 2011 at 9:26 am
I love her look ;)

One of your best…..just what you’d dream of seeing on a street called Elizabeth
November 9, 2011 at 9:42 am
Fantastic photo! Love her rings.
November 9, 2011 at 9:44 am
As if she were another century, sort of mystique…
Love her look!!!
November 9, 2011 at 9:52 am
Wow. This light is amazing. It reminds me of a really old painting.

Chiaroscuro contemporized in photography.
This harkens back to the Renaissance.

Fantastic photo. Reminds me of the fascinating photos of Julia Margaret Cameron. The somehow sharp glow of the rings pulls it all together.
India! Oh I love her!
November 9, 2011 at 10:16 am
The pic is nice and the girl is beautiful, but the outfit is awful
November 9, 2011 at 10:26 am
A very well made portrait…..
November 9, 2011 at 10:30 am
November 9, 2011 at 10:33 am
This looks like a painting. I like the shadows and how the light creeps in and illuminates her face.
November 9, 2011 at 10:38 am
She really looks like she s from some old movie. Beautiful photo !

Oh, my God! This is like an Old Master Painting!
The light, the expression, the patterns, the background….timeless moments occur in this fast-paced, disposable world!

It could be the art historian in me, but this photo reminds me of the Pre-Raphaelites…

November 9, 2011 at 10:51 am
She looks gorgeous!
November 9, 2011 at 10:55 am
seriously, when i see this one, I don’t think you do photography > you do art !
November 9, 2011 at 11:01 am
This is really great! It looks like a painting.
November 9, 2011 at 11:09 am
Outfit compliments her skin tone and hair color perfectly. Great look and really hypnotizing photo!
November 9, 2011 at 11:12 am
Fabulous contrasts with the light and her beautiful hair and nice flowery dress!
November 9, 2011 at 11:13 am
So british…in New York :)
November 9, 2011 at 11:15 am
The colours, the light. Like a 17th century Dutch painting!
November 9, 2011 at 11:16 am
Elle est belle, singulière, naturelle… Une beauté intemporelle qui porte sa particularité comme un trésor et vous nous la restituez dans toute sa splendeur !

through your lens you make everyone a star
November 9, 2011 at 11:39 am
Mr Reggie Lynch I think you are correct. I also think it is so very modern too, I love the print and texture mix as well as the Asian-influenced jacket. This is just such a beautiful image.
November 9, 2011 at 11:41 am
November 9, 2011 at 11:46 am
This girl is a natural beauty. Who is she ? I think you’ve captured her in a photo more than once. Her coloring is naturally sublime.

November 9, 2011 at 11:55 am
Let’s face it, India could wear a potato sack and still have that look of unaffected cool way beyond her years. She’s just so stunning.
November 9, 2011 at 11:58 am
Wow, this looks like an olden-day painting. The light and shadows and atmosphere- it’s all amazing.
November 9, 2011 at 12:11 pm
What a beautiful photo. This shirt is perfect for her.
November 9, 2011 at 12:23 pm

November 9, 2011 at 12:27 pm
This looks amazing. It’s like an ad campaign, she has this glowing beauty about her and the florals are just perfect with the look. Lovely!
November 9, 2011 at 12:28 pm
Thanks for a beautiful blending of colours and patterns.

I don’t usually save pictures from blogs, because then, it would take me hours and hours to check out all the blogs I follow. But this time… I just had to save this.

I’ll chime in on the chorus: What a beautiful, painterly photograph. (And what a lovely young woman!)
November 9, 2011 at 1:34 pm
November 9, 2011 at 1:47 pm
What a beautiful photo. The light is stunning, and her expression matches the mood of the photo perfectly.
November 9, 2011 at 1:48 pm
Wow! the light is great and she is lovely.
Beautiful shadow effect, love her dress!
November 9, 2011 at 2:04 pm
agree. this one’s as close to a vermeer painting as it can get. lovely!
November 9, 2011 at 2:10 pm
Chiaroscuro in art is an Italian term which literally means ‘light-dark’. In paintings the description refers to clear tonal contrasts which are often used to suggest the volume and modelling of the subjects depicted.
Chiaroscuro originated during the Renaissance as drawing on coloured paper.
Don’t take my word for it. Look it up.
November 9, 2011 at 2:25 pm
Good God! What a stunning photograph. You really are a formidable talent, Scott. Thank you.
November 9, 2011 at 2:33 pm
Lovely. For some reason I just love her hands.
November 9, 2011 at 2:36 pm
So beautiful photo.
November 9, 2011 at 2:57 pm
This is one of your best photos ever… Absolutely brilliant. I’m speechless.
November 9, 2011 at 3:07 pm
She is absolutely gorgeous! And that color is stunning! Great work :)
November 9, 2011 at 3:29 pm
Sorry, no, the palette of the dress does not fit with the skin/hair colours.
November 9, 2011 at 3:30 pm
This may be my favorite of yours ever.
Reminds me of a raw Prada ad.
November 9, 2011 at 3:32 pm
her hair is so amazing. really amazing photo.

Guau! amazing picture. Colours, light+shadows and flowers among flowers. You are a Renaissance artist, man.
November 9, 2011 at 4:26 pm
this picture is so beautiful. im sure you are aware of the french photographer albert kahn.Well if not check out musee albert kahn in paris next time youre there! im a huge fan of his work…well this photo is so so reminiscent of his style, the lighting, her stance, this lady appears almost to be in costume, a subject kahn was very keen to photograph…very very beautiful.
im very naughty,im so excited by the similarity i came straight to post comment without reading the rest of the comments! i bet i wont be the only one to make this comparison!
November 9, 2011 at 4:27 pm
Love this portrait~
November 9, 2011 at 4:40 pm
now this is *much* more like it in terms of impressionistic images. more please!

What stunning composition and color. Nicely done.
November 9, 2011 at 5:38 pm
Dutch painting today. The girl in the floral jacket. The colors are so fresh.
November 9, 2011 at 6:07 pm
Love this – the light is simply stunning.
November 9, 2011 at 6:21 pm
Fantastic! It really does look like a painting. You just set the bar higher.
November 9, 2011 at 6:38 pm
She’s out of another time….she has a wearily-woeful but beautiful look on her face and in her eyes… she is how I picture an Austen or a Brontë character.
November 9, 2011 at 7:30 pm
i check your blog daily and am blown away but i’ve never dared comment.
but this portrait leaves me no choice -
in my opinion this is one of your most exquisite portraits. not just for her gentle beauty and pretty blouse but for the renaissance painting you’ve created.
congratulations and thank you.

Reminds me of the impressionist era. So beautiful. It’ s like Vermeer.

With her reddish hair and freckles makes it very interesting with the combination of floral blazer..Beautiful

She reminds one so much of Nicole Kidman as Virginia Wood in ‘the hours’.
Beautiful photograph !
November 10, 2011 at 9:16 am
While I love your blog, I’ve never commented before. No picture has prompted me to do so like this one. This shot is absolutely stunning. It’s easily one on my top favorites you’ve ever posted.
November 10, 2011 at 9:46 am
Timeless portrait. The light, color, pattern, and palette is incredible. Great work!
November 10, 2011 at 9:55 am
I’ll be honest; I have been getting less and less enchanted with this blog because of the parade of designer clothes worn by magazine editors and models who might as well be from another planet. I always like seeing one or two of those, because hey, fantasy is fun, right? But that’s not how people dress. This girl though; this is what this blog does best, everything about this photo draws your attention to only what you want us to see about her with no extraneous detail. Its technically perfect. She is captivating. Bravo. More of this.
November 10, 2011 at 10:53 am
Absolutely beautiful photo, Scott–she looks like she is in a pre-Raphaelite painting with that lighting!
November 10, 2011 at 10:59 am

November 11, 2011 at 5:33 am
Looks like a Modigliani’s portrait…
November 11, 2011 at 11:47 am
I love the atmosphere in this photograph, the subtle light and subdued colors. It reminds me of Sargent’s oil paintings of Venetian women loitering in alleyways.
Look at the surrounding architecture in both and the expressions in their hands. One of my favorites.
November 11, 2011 at 3:05 pm
This is amazing! there’s something of the dutch masters about her direct stare and the backlighting. Beautiful!
November 11, 2011 at 4:58 pm
so beautiful girl. amazing picture!
November 11, 2011 at 7:05 pm
Hah! After I posted my last comment, I looked at the shot again and noticed the tags: India M. It’s her! How silly of me not to look at the tags first.
November 12, 2011 at 12:46 am
Her face looks like she lived hundreds of years ago.
November 12, 2011 at 6:37 am
I confess that it’s the first time I leave a comment. But with this one, a tear came into my eye, and I had to write something. So literary, so cinematic, so pictorial, so sartorial… You captured not only the timeless light outside, but also the light within her! You are blessed with a great talent and you bless us with amazing photos. Thank you, please go on
November 12, 2011 at 10:36 am
This is absolutely captivating. She looks like she could be a character in a Jane Austen novel
November 12, 2011 at 12:11 pm
The lighting in this one is just beautiful.
November 12, 2011 at 3:35 pm
