Re: Okay, what do you think?

Evalaina,
I am so glad I happened upon your image. For me this is one of those images that grabs a person and moves them for some unknown reaason.

I love the white dress in contrast to the purple gel and it gives me in one way a spooky, haunted feeling because a lot of us relate that color purple (almost a blacklight color) to a haunted house type scenario. In another way, although she in no way resembles Stevie Nicks, I get that whole Bella Donna vibe from her expressions and color nuiasances that can be found throught the imgage. The owl adds a special bit of mystique overall, one reason being that I have some sort of kindered spirit thing going on with all owls (a very long story). If I had one critcism I wish the owl had a bit of a different angle almost like he was coming in to light and the wings were spread open to gather the momentum stopping wind and it is in the process of lighting. Overall a lovely image so keep up with it.

Chris

Nice image, Evalaina. But the out-of-whack perpendiculars disturb me.

I think it looks good. The purple lighting seems unnatural in places.

She's going to get that beautiful dress all dirty!! LOL!

Very cool manip! Reminds me of something sci-fi. Like those bolts are going suck her right out the window if someone comes around the corner. Me likey the purple color.

As far as a critique. I'm not so good at them but here's what I notice.

I would work on shadowing. It's hard to tell where some of the light source is coming from. An example would be... why is her dress so white and bright when the light is coming in from the window? It looks like she has a spot light on her but no shadow to prersuede the eye. Does that make sense?

She also looks a little small in scale compared to her surroundings but that might have been done on purpose.

Keep up the great work! I can't wait to see more!

I tried to blend two images together and it just doesn't look right. I wasn't brave enough to post mine. LOL
