I want to vote for this - the pose is good, the lighting is good. But...the way the stocking sits on her knee spoils the whole image for me, sorry. It's like it's too small for her and doesn't fit around her knee, but stretches between her calf and thigh. Maybe if you clone that bit out it will look better, but it doesn't work for me as is. No offence intended, I love the image otherwise
It would have been wonderful without that bright streak of white in the ruin. It draws the eye and makes it hard to concentrate on anything else in the image. If you paint that out it would be an outstanding image
It's a lovely portrait Si, but the focus seems to be on his hand, which is reasonably sharp, while his face is quite soft. Maybe sharpen his face a bit and perhaps increase the contrast just a touch? I think that would improve on this lovely image
I want to like this, but... Her face is very orange compared to the rest of her skin, and I would have smoothed out the stubble in her armpit and edited out the red spots on her arms. She is also very cramped in the frame - I think a bit more space around her would improve the composition. Hope this doesn't offend, just my opinion . Very good lighting though
This is a fantastic image, I love it. The only thing I would say is to maybe darken the strawberry in the bottom right hand corner a bit, as it draws my eye away from the centre strawberry. It's much lighter and brighter and automatically draws the eye
His eyes are really sharp and look great. However, to me his face is quite soft, and in comparison the eyes are too sharp. I would have sharpened his face a bit to better match the eyes. I hope this makes sense . This is just my opinion and others may not agree with me
Classic and classy - I absolutely love this . I would possibly clone out that faint dark vertical line/smudge under her right eye, but that's a small niggle and doesn't detract from the beauty of the image.
This is lovely . I would maybe just crop out the blurry rock at the bottom. It doesn't add anything to the image and distracts the eye from the flowers. Cropping would also place the flowers nearer the bottom third and not in the centre of the image.
Beautifully done . I would maybe just move the horses a bit to the left though, so they're not in the centre. That white cloud on the mare's back makes it look a bit odd, as it blends in with her colour - moving them would also solve that.
I really like this, eggcellent texture . IMHO though, I would give it a tighter crop at the bottom, to just under the top of the centre egg. This would eliminate the noise showing in the bottom eggs, and I think also improve the composition. Just my opinion
Great image in principle and so cute . However...I can quite clearly see where the layer in PS hasn't been finished off/deleted properly, and the image seems 'stuck on' the background. There are also 'chips' in the hand where it looks like the brush slipped and took some of the layer off that wasn't supposed to come off. May I suggest, if you still have the image saved with the individual layers, to tidy up the painting, and maybe go over the outlines with a feathered brush to 'blur' the edges a bit so it doesn't look as flat and 'stuck on'. No offence intended, it's a lovely image otherwise
I want to love this, it's an excellent portrait, and the processing on the bottom half of her face is good, but... I feel it's been very over-processed on her forehead and around her eyes - it looks very plastic. Sorry, just my opinion
