I have no idea what to call this one so any suggestions would be good
I hope you like it:):)

This was inspired by a photo of my daughter when we took a night walk through the woods out the back of where I live:):)

How about a title like:
Night Red Morning

Leaves it ambiguous and highly energized, from
"Red Sky at morning, sailor take warning. Red Sky at night, sailor's delight."

Great image. Very very magnetic. Has a bit of a historic feel with that lovely red drapery.

Beautiful girl.

Pretty red sky and she is not that happy about it ... as it seem to me... Pleasant picture...

Red, red and red. Her blond hair really is emphasized. It's a moody creation. Well done!

Can't think of a good title, but it's most certainly a great painting! Well done.

It's a very beautiful painting with a lot of atmosphere and mystery notwithstanding the substantially warm tones.:):):)
Your daughter likeness with You is also impressive. Actually she would rather seem Your sister!:eek::)

Awesome! When I first saw the image, I had scrolled past the point of seeing your avatar initially, I thought "whoa, that looks an awful lot like someone's avatar image I've seen!" Sure enough, it looks like the spittin image of your avatar image! Great job

Fire thank you very much I really appreciate it your comment also made me smile:):)

Excellent job Mannafig. To improve it I would make her hair a different color than her skin. It could even be a slight difference. Just my take. Good work!
