I have never really been a fan of still life..I don't shoot such things, but I thought I would have a go at 'constructing' one........
All the images used are my own... (5 years and 2246 days ago)
Nice shadows, nice construction... There is a black outline around the flowers, but other than that, this is a very nice image. Good luck!
Edit: Author, it's your image, and it's great, you don;t have to change a thing
Pretty combination of colors, but when flowers are 'flipped', shadows should be changed.
>artgirl.thanx......forgot all about that bit, I have made some changes now. > Ponti......yes, I see th edark lines, but when I was looking at the pic in cs, it looked like they might pass as light / shadows from the lighting above..
overall nice image, the flowers in front of the vase throw it off a little bit, maybe show more stem or more of the top of the vase? it just kind looks like it's jumping out..other than that nice image
Great image!!! nicely done!
Very nice, great representation of your idea.
this is a lovely image
Maybe not the most original use of source...but very nicely done! And some sort of a conflict in shadows...the vase is throwing a shadow behind while the flower and the ring box have a shadow in front. Also the shadow of the vase is less defined than the rest, it almost looks like just some dark spots! Best of luck!
> nellista...the position of the shadow would depend upon where I intended the light to be coming from.........however, I do agree with you about the density of some of the shadows. My intention was that the shadows from the buds would not be to heavy, so as not to take over the shot. I deliberately made the stem shadow a little heavier, to give some impression of the shape of the stem itself. As for originality........it is original to me, as I have never done anything like this before. Thank you for your input...;
>Nator....strangely, I considered this option, but when I looked at it, it looked bare and lacking..........hence the stemmed bud and the ring.
Very cool work, almost looks like a picture.

I don't do chops, but I thought I would have a go at this one........please rip it to pieces if you will, it is the only way I will learn...:-)....the picture in the background is my own. (5 years and 2258 days ago)
Great work....Nicely kept the shadow according to the image...Superb work....Liked it a lot...The angle of the jump is also very much in sync with the image...Good one....
Very good, GL
I don't know, I'm a beginner, but for me it looks natural! And very beautiful landscape!
Very good job, good blending, this is believable (y0
Congrats for your third place, Ade! And a great start with doing chops!

Seems like the lines would follow the curves of the mushrooms more...
thanx, I altered it a little, it is not so easy is it...
I think there's a lack of curves in the stripes, it seems like the mushrooms are flat... Warp!
If there only would be some original mushrooms right next to them or some other alterations.. nice idea, but just a little bit too simple. Still could use some warp or inner shadow or similar to make them appear more round and 3D.
@widiar....really!.....your opinion, but for me, a newbie to this, I think that it is not too simple!!....anyway, I have altered it once again........a little more shadow, and some careful use of liquify.......thanx for the comments peep's....
It's definitely better now. I know for a beginner it takes time to make a good picture, but also if you wish to succeed, you need to be creative as well as to work hard. I'm glad you took the effort to alter it o/
Looks better now than what you had. GL!
good idea... better execution
the gravestones are from a shot of my own....... (5 years and 2338 days ago)
you then need to upload the untouched version of your own photo... its in the guidelines.
ok, this is the first time for me, how do I do that? I have only entered this as a try out. I don't do photoshop, only to edit my shots for color and stuff.
Go to MY STUFF, MY CONTESTS, EDIT ENTRY.
It high res, it looks like it needs a little work. I would suggest maybe pattern stamp some of the leaves over the base of the headstones to create a better layering. Iâ€™m not really sure what you were trying to achieve with the front headstone. It just looks a little out of place. Thereâ€™s lots of useful information in the rules and guidelines as well. You also may want to consider the forum for some help on the site. I understand you are new and we are just trying to help you get better when we make suggestions for improvement. Welcome to PXLeyes author.
> jawshoewah.......there are a few of these dark stones in the line, I think maybe I should take this one out. I didn't put it in seperately, it was part of the original.
It's all good.
Would have been really nice to see a high res version of this. I really like the feel of this.
GL with your entry author, you can only grow from here. Image presents an interesting feel
I'm sorry, I thought the hi res was with it............too late now.
Nice Entry....G/L Author.
