This almost looks too good to be a cell phone photo! A bit of a halo over the shoulder on the LH side, but really good work, here!

I still don't understand what your comment means within context or without. Ask What of the Admins? Your statement makes no sense, MossyB didn't ask a question only made a nicely poetic statement and complimented your work. So I ask again what do you mean by :"Ask that to the Admins on here . They are so busy looking for copy rights. I do this for fun thats it."

You're the author, whatever you think looks right for your creation is all that matters. The suggestions given are meant to improve your work based on the realism of the piece. You commented "In the source photo there is a lot of yellow and the absents of light will not turn it blue or purple." Actually if you look at the visible spectrum: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Visible_spectrum , you'll notice the chart of spectral colors. At the top are violet, blue and cyan. These are high frequency low wavelength colors, the lower frequency higher wavelength colors are less visible when there is less light so in reality even a bright yellow flower will lose its color when the amount of light is reduced.
I don't understand your comment "Ask that to the Admins on here . They are so busy looking for copy rights. I do this for fun thats it." What does Administration have to do with your entry or any comments made. Moderators look for copyrights and see that rules are followed among other responsibilities as well as assisting members with problems. Apparently we even comment on entries (I just did), so what's the problem?

There is a very old song by the Moody Blues, "Nights in White Satin" with the lyrics:
"Cold-hearted orb rules the night,
Removes the colors from our sight.
Red is grey and yellow, white,
And we decide which is right,
And which is an illusion... "

Your lightening of the ambient light has improved this quite a bit, lifting it from the ubiquitous black void so popular in too many entries.

I agree ... this is a lovely effort and definitely moving in the right direction!!!

Could desaturate it some or give it a more "night" colour (blues & purples work well for night). Except where the lamp is (as Stowsk mentioned) the lamp is fine casting a soft yellow glow.

Other than that I will leave the shadow comments to those with more skill in that area ... I think you are getting pretty close (but as I have said before, shadows are not my strong point).

Overall this is looking to be a very lovely image ... I think I will wait to vote as I think this image could get better and better!

Only a stronger light would cover that much ground and cast that shadow. Yelow is fine for incandescent light, the fringe of the image should be cooler or neutral...simple rule... light = color...less light, less color....if you want a realistic look. Should have a strong set shad at the base of the feet casting off gradually. This image has a ton of potential..nice effort....whoever you are...i'll vote now.

Too dark. All I can see is some yellow ground with a couple shadows walking on it. The lamp isn't illuminating very much...

Too much yellow for a night scene...night would be more blue.

Hmm... I'm not sure if you achieved the effect, because you selected and isolated the subject you wanted to be focused and blurred all the rest, when the right way to do it is to isolate a part of the middle and blurred the other parts.

I wonder that too... I also wonder why did you show some teared parts upside down.... Looks more 'dramatic' that way... :P Well, if it was really teared like that before the restoration then you did a great job making it look like it wasn't. No sign of it at all

Did you actually tear this image into 4 pieces to make for more of a challenge? Just curious.

ok, I see your point, but it is still a color conversion, and not a bad one at that.....

I'd add a vignette and bring up saturation a little bit since it's kinda washed out. Also, the coat of the boy on left is not very good. gl!

looks like a good rebuild..........but you had an opportunity here to alter the lighting and shadows, so why didn't you?
