Flight by JamesWinslett

While seeing this painting all I can think of is the last verses of Music of the Night were the Phantom wants Christine to submit to him. This girl seems to be floating to another world on the day of her wedding. Where it looks like she is unsure what will happen to her.

I love the use of color in this where it appears a cross of a photograph and a painting. The red hair does indeed contrast the blue background in this giving it a surreal and magical touch to a pieces which appears to be out of a Gothic Style.

Great! I love the Phantom of the Opera and the lyrics you mention really do seem to fit. My favourite version of the story is the 1925 silent film starring Lon Chaney which is incredibly spooky for its time. This photoshoot was actually inspired by another Gothic novel, Bram Stoker's Dracula, so the idea of the bride being in thrall to her dark master is definitely there - it must be a recurrent theme in Gothic literature. Thanks for your thoughtful critique :)
