A quick view of sabretalon's recent activity.

  • Blossom

    Personally, I prefer shots like this where the blossom is shown on a branch with no other blossom behind i.e. against a blue sky. Of course this is a personal view. I just feel the rest of the tree behind just over complicates the overall image.

    OK here is a little feedback from me.

    The one on the left as you look at the image is pleasing enough but for me the one on the right is just a little bit too much severe. Sorry if that offends but the facial expression does not suit her.

    Also the one on the right lacks a defined catchlight in the eyes.

    In a portrait like this the eyes need to capture you and the smile needs to make you feel it is genuine. The one on the left has got that and that is why it works best for me.

    Most would also be tempted to have hidden the ear behind the hair on the one on the right. Maybe a touch of healing brush on the marks on her cheek as well.

    Hope that helps?

    Take a closer look at those eyes, you need to spend a little more time on them to give them a little more depth.

    The outer area of the iris should be a shade darker, just try burning the edges slightly.

    I can see a few grey areas in the eyes, which make it look like you missed a few areas with your colour.

    You may also want to tone down the area under her left eye (right as you look at it) Don't over do it as it will look false. Duplicate the image then use the healing brush to sort it out, then reduce the opacity of the layer until it looks more natural.

    Good pose

    Pretty competent animal portrait, not much else to add other than, you do realise you will get less people responding since you chose not to add any information to the description. For all I know you could be wanting an opinion as to a certain feeling the image gives?

    In future, consider taking some time to put more info in the description and you will find that people will take you seriously as well.

    It sort of does work. Personally I would have done a dark vigenette around it first and then the acid edge effect you have. This would make it look dark and patchy near the edges. Maybe selectively adjust the contrast on the walls to try and make him seem to stand away from the wall, his face sort of blends in at the moment.

    You may not get critique!

    In most situations you should always provide as much information about the picture and what you expect back as critique. For example, what was it that stands out in the photograph for you? Do you like it? I only say this because you may find that other will not critique due to it having no descritpion as such. Think of it from our point of view as well, if you can't be bothered to put in a description, then why should we spend time with critiques?

    I will leave some feedback though;

    I would personally remove the one on the right, as for me it does not add anything to the image.

    It does look a little blown out near the top where the lump of rust is and the end of the pole closest to the front of the image. But that is not too off putting for me.

    This may not be a critique you will like!

    I see 3 cats with their eyes closed or partially closed and the red could do with a touch more saturation to give it some impact.

    You have a diagonal in there but the whole picture does not have any real depth to it.

    Personally I would have cropped out the rest of the door on the lower right, and possibly to the wall on the left.

    It would have been nice if one of them was looking directly at the camera with its eyes open. I am guessing there were others around at the time?

    A lower point of view may have worked better as well.

    You have done well to keep all the detail in the whites and darks on the image. Try a quick saturation boost and give impact to the colours? Unless you are trying to represent a drab environment to show where they live etc..? I don't know what you are trying to achieve, due to no information about the picture.
