don't know what was your inspiration for this amazing shot but I see it as one of the interpretations of La belle dame sans merci.

Behind The Lens

Location
Taken along the bank of a dried stream, in the village of Aghios Athanasios, on the island of Evvia, Greece. I always choose locations where the light is adequate to create the mood I'm going for. It is also easier for me to focus my model and help her see my vision.
Time
Late in the afternoon, before sundown.
Lighting
The light used was ambient.
Equipment
Sony a350 Minolta rokkor 50mm f2.8
Inspiration
My inspirations come from my visions of self. This photo is no more that a vision of loneliness. The inner existential stuggle of faceless, yet forceful loneliness that starts with life. The pain of it, to me, is faceless but it ceases where the glory of solitude starts. I wished my viewer to experience the agony that can be interpreted in any and every language a soul can speak
Editing
I did some post-processing on Photoshop (tone enhancement and vignetting )
In my camera bag
I always carry my light meter, reflector and another analog lens, namely the Minolta mc rokkor 135mm f2.8
Feedback
I don't know if my piece of advice can come in handy...I truly feel photography is just an expression medium. Whoever embarks on photography, make sure your photos come from within. Whatever is made in pain and agony is usually felt by the viewer.
