Nice idea for an image, couple of thoughts though, Very glary and bleached out, I understand what you were trying to achieve, maybe a few layers one for the mono image of the model with a bit more definition in the tones and curves of the models torso, one layer for the Ace of Diamonds this could then be treated seperate and contarst adjusted to make it really standout (at the moment you are losing clarity due to the harsh light/contrast), and similarly for the poker chip on another layer. I Think it would benefit from the chip being in colour as well, at the moment image looks flat and washed out.

Hope this is OK and haven't offended Smile

I like the idea Pablo. I would prefer to see a little more contour in her body so it has a little more definition; and the card would look better with the colour more intense. I would also suggest the background at the sides be darkened slightly.


I have loaded a mod to show what I mean,



Hope this helps

The Ace is a bit wishy washy, also the skin has no life in it, a high key shot to me only works on a face.The chip seemed to need moving to the left. In the mod I have cropped so the centre of the Ace is on a third. The idea of the image and the composition is not bad.
Hope this helps.

The idea is excellent. I, too, would like things a little less washed out with more density, especially the red on the card. I would have picked the ace of spades.
