Welcom to DT. Your first three photos are technically great. You obviously know lighting. One suggestion for you is to leave more space around your models. Cropping so tight limits the use of the photos. Leaving more space gives designers more options. Wishing you continued success.

Yes you are right, you are going to Transilvania. If you want to "hunt" for Dracula portrait, you must go to Bran Castle (near Brasov). Here is a photo of Bran castle made by Achilles: https://www.dreamstime.com/bran-castle-romania-rimage5167153-resi902269
And here is what Wikipedia can tell you about Dracula's Castle:
P.S. Don't forget to bring some garlic whit you :)

You should try also Sibiu, it's near Brasov, and was the Culture Capital of Europe, an old town whit a lot of historical landmarks.
Most of my pictures are from Switzerland but I have 3 from Romania (Valiug Dam and Alba Iulia's Cathedral)
