Of all his stock, this one is my favorite. I could just never figure out what to do with her. You did and you did it beautifully. Adding it to my favs. If I could add it twice, I would.
it is amzing
Wow it's so pretty..I love this kind of work...high vote and fav
Beautiful image, well made SBS...mucha luck, author!
very nice piece of work !!! love how you've made spilling water ... GL!!!
Derdevil, the water was the first thing I saw in my mind when I looked at the contest source, imagining "waves" from the curves of the power supply. It took a bit of work to make it look more organic in form, but I'm happy with the way it turned out, thank you for noticing!
I think that the water was an especially subtle and creative use of the source image. This is a really wonderful piece of art!
Fantastic Work........ Love the concept. Good Luck Author.
Awesome Work!!! Love the SBS, certainly a teaching tool for me! I am learning as I go through experimentation and I don't have photoshop so this entry just amazed me. Then to see the SBS...all I can say is WOW! Good luck, truly a fantastic entry.
The concept is nice and the SBS is very helpful.
Adding it as one of my favorites. Very nice job done.
All the best for your future works.
Beautifully done. Your SBS are very informative. Good luck!
beautiful view, love the ancient Greek mood, good luck
One of the best and surely a winner for me. Instant fav here author.
Wow, it looks great. It reminds me of Aquarius image and the effect is brilliant. Two thumbs up - well done
This work is beautiful, and good
Good job showing something recognizable from the source in an artistic way.
Appealing, but the slightly colorful background, particularly the pink roses, grabs my eye before the water maiden's muted tones.
Although the roses may grab your eye before the maiden, I doubt your attention stays there, since the maiden is in front of the roses...This then pulls your eyes to the maiden, her hair and the pouring water, which then makes your eye go to the circular pattern containing the source image, which is echoed in the water, directing your eye back to the background roses, and your eye begins the journey again...Notice that the pale roses (which match the maiden's dress) are at the bottom. The roses were deliberately rotated to place the colors that way...
That's the concept behind the composition, and why I selected the roses as well as the pink tones - to keep the focus from settling upon the maiden with the background as an afterthought.
Really nice work, author, good use of source image. I especially like how you made the water.
Great clean work....should of been top 3 in my eyes.,

Well done, high mark. Only one thing that I noticed, there is a weird green spot on her head (top right), seems like it needs some retouching.
Yup, I see it...NOW. Thanks!
It's late, and my eyes are crossing tonight. Will fix it in the morning. Thanks again!
U did great job author...with few minor tweaks this can be perfect...Mikael is right about upper right part and maybe u could use smudge tool to create few hairs that out of the hair line to achieve more natural and realistic look...also just an idea maybe u could create thing that Japanese woman do with the lipstick just in the middle of the lips...
I contemplated giving her the "full Geisha" makeup, with the snow white foundation, and Geisha "experience" shape (did you know that the size and shape - top, bottom, or both) signify the age and experience of the Geisha?), but felt that would be too far from the "ethnicity."
Hair is SUCH a complicated thing to chop well. Too smooth and it looks cut and paste...I gave her some loose hairs on the RH side, but the ones on the left just didn't look natural...I'll try again.
Thanks for your comments!
Great transformation & SBS...GL author!
Wonderful creation author! greatly!
wow! great job.
great job on the girl love it! It I want to be picky I see that the background looks a bit unnatural. First of all there aren't any shadows under the trees and secondly, more important in my point of view, the very closeup of the face does not allow the background to be in focus. It's unnatural to the human eye, if I look at somethin that close, I see the background out of focus.
It's an "HDR" (High Definition Resolution) shot, so the focus is the same near and far, and the photographer was using a strong umbrella reflector light, so the trees had no shadow...
I do appreciate your comments, thank you for taking the time to point these things out. I learn things I need to improve with every entry, thanks to fellow members like you!
uhm, HDR has nothing to do with the focus, it simply means bringing out details in the very dark and very light areas, thus producing an image with rich details in all light levels. Just for clarification.
Thanks for the clarification...
Don't deal with a sense of humor much, do ya? lol!
c'mon, are you kidding?
Pretty good , right side of the nostril is puffy and there is a lack of definition around the eye tear section.color is slightly washed out but I think I still like it. good luck.
This is well done... but... Asians usually have brown or black eyes...
I know, but then it would not have been much of a manipulation, as I could have just replaced the face with an Asian one...
Great work ! Good luck author !
Congrats, very nice work
Animated SBS - To explain it all would have taken longer than it did to make it, which took long enough! (5 years and 903 days ago)
Sweet looking image! Just wish the SBS had some explanation along with the images. GL author!
It had a LOT of color adjustment, cloning, and painting, with a bit of "sketch" layers added for detail. About 40-50 layers, all said and done.
simply nice............ meow!
but i dnt like the background author, looks weird.
It's meant to be somewhat "impressionist..."
Not bad, buggy seems to be missing a handle knob judging by the angle.
Actually, it's a side view of a handle that runs horizontally. There is also the slightest bit of a vertical along the left edge of the buggy basket. If you check the source photo (#1 in the list), you'll see that it's the angle of the photo.
I really like the impressionist feel, it adds to the surreal atmosphere! Very good choice of animals, love the fish!
High mark! Good luck
What a baby!
He's a bit big for his age, but has a face you gotta love...lol!
This is just lovely! Amazing work!
The Hi-Res version of this entry shows the anisotropic details much better. (5 years and 303 days ago)
Cool—which also describes the color palette referenced in your title. I think having the top brickwork being exactly in line with the top of the image and the bottom step perfectly parallel with the bottom edge of the image could be more compelling (i.e., in your face/"here I am". Given the clear falseness of the image, I might exaggerate the contrast and saturation a bit more.
Thank you, I vacillated with "how much fake is too much fake?" so it is nice to know that it is clear enough. I decided against going too stylized with a harsher contrast, although I did like the high contrast step in the SBS...
I really like what you did, just wish there was a main subject on steps....anything.
a calligraphic precision, very special. bravo
