Also think cropping the sun out would improve this

Yes think the blur slightly distracts in this one

I studied this in high resolution and it looks much better but it is still quite soft. If you crop it slightly at the sides the shadow aspect would be lost and more attention would be on the path and sun's rays. Remember that cropping is an artistic tool, use it to your advantage. Lovely warm colours and a very evocative image full of mood....romantic mood!

Nice scene, however, did you take it whilst cycling on your bike or a moving car as it is very blurred? For such a beautiful scene you want to show it to us with clarity. The colours are lovely and warm.

You caught a real sweet quality, a tenderness and YES that is part of being romantic. I like the emotive pull this has but technically you need to have a sharp image, good focus on the focal points (the two monkeys) after all that is what you are trying to show us, right? There is also a bit of a mischievousness caught and makes me wonder if that one monkey is really a thief!

I agree with the comment above. But you surely did get a crowd and my curiosity piqued!

As a statue is the main subject,then would have been better without human content,again focus needs to be spot on

You are allowed to replace images, but not delete an image. On this site we all want to learn more, so if someone has a good suggestion, it's OK to follow up on it.

I think you covered the bases, but it's up to the MODs to decide. If you haven't been contacted yet it should be okay (you really did explain everything quite well). In time you will learn how to do it from the start, it's a learning process. Great job and good work... and Good luck

Author..wonderful creativity with the source to create such a modern building. When submitting a contest piece with a LOT of hand drawn accents, try to make them look less obvious to aid to the realism.. OR just go the other directions and make them blatantly obvious (sharper lines less blur etc...) Also.. be very careful using brushes that aren't created from direct photos (no illustrations). I don't know what brushes come with the new PHOTOSHOP versions so that will be up with the mods. (I only got the blades of grass and maple leaf brushes and I use them sparingly here at PXLeyes cause they are a bit frowned upon. In the voting anyway) You'll need to post the sources for the brushes in order to stay in the contest, but I'm sure a mod will contact you about this issue. This is a fun image, but there are many areas of improvement that can be adjusted so you can get a higher score. Good luck author and I love the effort. The blankness of the windows are of issue as well but these are things you probably see yourself and you don't need me to tell you. Nice to see the work.. and once again.. sincere luck on this

really neat textures and bending Just be aware when drop shadows/burn hits the blurred background... but that could be what you wanted, it just causes a floating effect..not a big whoop but it makes it more illustrative (South Park) than a photo.. GREAT JOB!!!

The image size seems to be correct now at 1920X1080, I expect the Contest Moderator will check this again.

This is a nice image but the obvious cloning of the clouds is distracting. It's a simple fix, just clone out the obvious repetitive areas so that no two areas are exactly the same.

The changes you made are super subtle. Meaning, I thought you just placed a plain background into the image, then I looked at all the changes you made and was very impressed.
Subtle:"delicately complex and understated."
