Available light portraits at night-time

Hi all,

here are some portraits that I shot last Tuesday night in Lugano (Switzerland). The model (the beautiful Elisia) was dressed with a Victorian dress to create the impression of a person coming from the past and taken to a modern city. I used available light only and I did not correct the color cast of the multiple light sources (on color photos, of course) to preserve the mood.

The photos were shot by using a 5DIII with a Canon EF 135mm f2L and a Canon 85mm f1.8. The first three shots are at ISO1600, the last one at ISO3200. I also have some at ISO6400, but I have not yet processed them.

Please notice: on this forum, with the new visualization, these images (mostly the vertical ones) show some strange artifacts that are not in the original photos. Please, check them on 500px and Flickr (link below the pictures) to see the original versions without artifacts.
