    Hi Toad

    I like the colours of the sky and the skeleton tree. Is this creature in the middle howling at the moon? For all I know the composition is not quite right for me : too much empty space at left, the stump and the lying creature are a bit out of the image. The glowing eyes could be more glowing, even green or yellow to complement the purple-blue. The mountain colors suit the picture but they are there and not there (too low?). You only know what you wanted to end with so take my comments with a pinch of salt and no offense.

      I should clarify what I am going for with the composition as everyone is remarking on it. The composition is intended to establish a triangle of tension - a fairly classic theme in symbolic art (eg: The Lovers Tarot Card).

      The cowled figure stares at the creature on the left - the creature on the left stares at the creature on the right - the creature on the right stares at the cowled figure. A closed triangle of tension or a Mexican Standoff.

      The creature on the right is intended to be only slightly visible - to give the impression of an indeterminate number of creatures. I experimented with many positionings and I was most happy with him/it being only faintly visible.

      The empty landscape and low mountain is intended to establish the empty blasted heath look that I thought was important for this shot.

      Thanks for the feedback.

        Sorry guys

        It's of course the space to the right that I was talking about.
        The right side of the picture

          Another Baker shot
          by Ken Rogers
          Here is yet another picture of Mount Baker from me. I like this shot very much, because it was a gorgeous sunny day, and I seldom take such sharply focused pictures. I would like your critique/help with the foreground terrain especially, and anything else you might feel needs work.

          i have worked on this a good while and think i am done, but i would appreciate your input.

          i am most concerned about
          1 whether it appears straight,
          2 the two trees - there was not much in the original but fluff - do i need to do more (or less?)
          3 i know you're not...

          Hi everyone, I'm back again. I've received so much helpful advice on this forum that I would like to present another image for your criticism.

          How Did I Do On This One?
          by Jon Foster
          Here's a restoration I just spent a few hours doing. The original is some sort of lapel pin measuring about 2 x 2.5". The picture is glued into the back of the pin which is about .25" deep and can't be removed without destroying what's left of it. I tried to scan it but of course it didn't...
