Views, opinions, critiques?


Thanks!

I like the fun of the first image, and you've got light ratio on her face; however, you have some really obvious cloning issues with that print. The tree branches over her head and the clumps of flowers near the bottom.

The second (imo) is your strongest. I might (might) take a bit off the top, not much just a little. I like the color harmony. Maybe vignette a bit. The upper/middle part of the right has a brightness to it subtly taking your eye away from her. Maybe if you did Painter on this one you may have a winner?!...

The third has some really cool leading lines and with the right title. The light overhead is competing with the bride for attention, can you tone it down a bit?

Hi Marc, Do you go to bed really late or get up really early, or just never sleep?

I agree that the cloning is bad in the first one, but maybe you weren't finished. Light sweater could hold it back.

I like the ballerina, but wonder if there were some way to create really dramatic lighting. Painter also as suggested above.

Love the bride too, but the lights are really brite. Would it look unrealistic if they were eliminated? Toned down for sure.

Aren't you going right down to the wire here with your case? I went one step further than the "Hail Mary," I said the entire rosary over mine before I sent it off. I didn't get but one response here on the forum so just picked some and went with them.

Anyway, good luck! ...... or post some more.

Hi Auralee,


I was up till 6 (from 11 the previous night) working on the imags. The kid oin the park was the last one I did and by gosh the cloning is bad... yikes!

Oh buggers, yes and sad, I'm gonna have to drive (or fly) these down. Good luck to you also. Oh I don't know if twice a Hail Mary works, but this time I'm gonna have to burn some ancient chinese joss (incense) sticks for good luck!

Don,

Thanks for taking a look. If beginners pointe doesnt hang in regionals then to an artist it goes for artwork. Same with the bride.
