Re: Surreal still life....

The image opens up really small. It's hard to give feedback cuz I can't make out any details.

Re: Surreal still life....

I thought it was a floater till I looked very close and found there was a background and base w/reflection.. which was totally missed at first look.. maybe they should be brightened a little to provide definition

Oops! forgot to say I think it is a nice, clean and crisp piece!

It's good but it doesn't look real, why?

the reflection.... the lights coming from background but still you have light in front? this doesn't work like that in reality you need to figure where you wants light to fall from. if you want lights to come from background and front like this picture, the shadow should not be there.

Re: Surreal still life....

it doesnt look real beacuse of the process in which I made it, using photography and different mediums like scanning.

as for the 'shadow' its ment to be a reflection, on a really reflective surface..... you know like how in itunes the cd covers are reflected underneath them? bit like that i suppose
