Different and I can see where the idea has come from - I like the poppies and the base - not too sure about the curved vase - might be worth giving it a try without the vase and see what you think.

Hi Osie, you have certainly taken this idea and made it very much your own. I like the choice of a poppy as your colour splash and the shape you have chosen adds interest, however the success of a minimalist composition such as this is entirely dependant on where the weight falls and this feels a bit top heavy to me. I would drop the main poppy down to the level of the two little ones (keeping the picture shape the same) then lose the two little ones which I feel are a bit of a distraction.
The other suggestion I have is more technical but you may find it useful. You have used Drop Shadow or Outer Glow to surround your 'vase' shape, I find this horribly restrictive to work with and a bit mechanical in appearance. Try making a black copy of your shape on its own layer underneath the white one and adding a lot of gaussian blur. This gives you complete control over your shadow allowing you to move it, distort it and even rub it out where you might not want it (like maybe under the table).

I wouldn't normally be so critical of a piece of creative work... but you did ask. Smile But when all is said and done it is your choices that make it your picture and you have ideas in here that make me want to return to the subject afresh, so cheers for that.

Eric

Eric...Thank you so much for taking the time to look at what I created & giving me your thoughts. I have taken on board the ideas/suggestions you have passed on to me...I found Nothing you said, critical in any way. I am now going to the playground...I will take "Photoshop" with me... armed with more info/ideas than I started with, hopefully the end product will better than its predecessor... I would have never thought of using a black underlay to work as my drop shadow...so that is one of the first things I will look at...I hope you don't mind Eric, if I give you another shout when I think I have bettered my previous effort...so you may cast an eye over it for me...once again many thanks for you help...Smile
