I hope they don't expect to get too far with the old boat.

tad on the dark side.. not a bad thing.. wonder if you could soften up the image to get rid of the sharp lines around the people... maybe just edge blur.. they really stand out(they are expertly masked out.. the work is amazing) good luck (Super HIGH MARKS FOR SKILLS)

I like the feel of this, nice one

author says:

GolemAura, I purposely made the pirates and the boat sharp because they are in the foreground and in focus. I blurred the water behind them. Thanks for the comments everyone.

Pretty bright for a night scene, I'd desaturate it some...

nice work! but still needs some polishing. Ditto on the desaturating CMYK. I'd also add that the light sources are wrong. you have the moon in the back, but no shadows. the pirate on the right should be almost completely in the shadow of the boat as of where the moon is, for example.

I really like your composition, but I have a few suggestions. The moon being full and that bright would still cast some subtle shadows toward the foreground. This would help to really place the pirates and boat on the beach. Also, some lighting highlights where the moon is hitting them (maybe use dodge tool) would really look nice!! Good luck!!

Good job!

Very nice!! Clean, clean, clean. I would suggest a little "disturbance" to the sand under all the feet and boat, rather than smooth shadows only. Wet sand usually gives in to pressure and weight by creating impressions and displacement. Agree with CMYK. menelve and Philister on brightness/highlights and shadows. There's something "pasted in" and a bit isolated about the pirate scene compared to the background, it's not blending naturally. Awesome masking! Perfect!

good work, check the propotions

I agree with elemare disturbances on the sand.. It would help make this piece look real if there are footprints and dents under the characters caused by their weight. The sand still looks really smooth...

avatar artgirl1935

I agree with the comments on shadows and also footprints in sand. I also think the moon pulls your eye away from the pirates. Maybe it would be better more behind them to silhouette them. Like your idea.

author says:

I made changes as suggested, desaturated the main characters and added a shadow. I'll work on the sand if I get time. Thanks for the suggestions guys.

too dark

Too bright, too dark, I give up!!!!

Menelve says:

looks much better now! the pirates could still do with having the dodge tool applied to them to make their right side more shadowed.

good idea but i think the front of the ship and the pirates would be in shadow seeing the moon is at the rear .. but good idea

Haha, poor author . I think it's not too dark. What you càn add is a liiiitle bit of highlight on the left side of the standing pirate and the side of the boat. But not very needed either, only if you wanna try. What I wòuld do is put the moon a bit more to the right, cause right now it's almost against the border of the image, which is imo a bit distracting. Put it a bit more to the right and it's more part of the image. Also, the sea in the background is blurry, but the moon is very sharp. Maybe some blur for the moon too? Good luck!
