Nice background information.
Normally I don't name my shots because I want to let it to the imagination of the viewers, for me I never heard of this goddess before (sorry).
But I love the way you tell it

And I love the way you appreciate the piece of information Frank. I find your technicality quite impressive.Especially the way you use light in dim environments which has always offered great challenge to me. On the other hand, I think someone who deal with goddesses as much as yourself should definetely know about them more than they do!! Now let me introduce Lilith Ishtar in my way and my words: Hers is a cool pose of divinity, a sarcastic reminder that any vanity of the individual would eventually reduce to a restful shadow of a cypress tree. And she wispers thousands of years before:''you too, will come to me and taste death'' while, over her voluptuous nudity, displaying the circular instruments in her hands representing birth, procreation and death. In short, sexuality and death, Frank... a close and dramatic link.

Hi,
The rework on pictures is always very personal.
I never claim to make photo's out of the cam (although sometimes I do).
Especially with this kind of shots I love to go more for the painting/airbrush look than stay with the photo.

I believe that making a good photo is step one.
Using PS is step two in my process
