Oh my goodness, I do wish you had said something about the art of making this as I have never heard of quilling. Your photographic composition is all encomapssing and shows us great detail. It is too bad you have a hot spot in the upper L corner (our L), remember that the natural pathway of the human eye is to always be drawn to the brightest part of the canvas and with that hot spot on the edge there the eye quickly leaves the print. You want to do everything in your power to keep our eyes inside the image. The patterns of this creation do have a magnetic pull on our eyes and the colour palette of red and green , which are contrasting colours on the colour wheel, further enhance this work.

Woooaaaah, now that is what I call thinking ahead. Great dyptich entry, snow is a bit overexposed with hot spots and the images are soft but the idea is excellent as is the precision of execution.

At that age, ducklings typically follow the Mom. Looks like they're protecting a quarterback. Nice.

I think this is pretty! I don't know if anyone truly understands the intricacy or tediousness of making an ornament of that size.

Really sweet, and I like the warm light. It could use a little cropping. do you know the rule of thirds?
Have a look here:

You want to crop the photo so the left and top line meets in her left eye.
Good luck

I agree this is better, you have cropped it closer so we can really see the girls faces but you haven't lost the lovely surrounding.

I think that the overexposed spots ruin the general picture here. If you crop it closer to the fish that seems to be your main focus, things will improve a great deal. Just a thought
