congrats on first... honestly, i would have to say your lighting is a bit horrible, but your structure, and execution is excellent. also could be sharper.... (i give hard critiques to quality work... you can handle it, im sure...besides, you got first! congrats!)

all in all, good stuff!

my suggestion would be to add a slight blur on the beetles, and do a levels adjustment and bring down the lightness (the slider underneath the shadows/highlights/midtone slider section) so that the blacks on the beetles match the blacks on the rest of the image... then make the entire image black and white, so that its all quite uniform, instead of 1 colored beetle. lol

wait, theres a band called butthead? lolll!!! and its your favorite?!

EDIT: oh hahahahahaha! sorry, i must have been confused on which page i was on! my bad... lol

ANOTHER EDIT: if that were true, all you gotta do is re-upload to the proper contest and flag your image as being misplaced, or inappropriate for the guidelines... simple fix

nicely done author my favorite... not only is the quality of the image great but unfortunately (for most of the other entries) this doesnt appear to be flat like most of the rest. which is great! honestly i dont see much competition here, and if you dont get first, or second, i will be stumped. lol... great work! even the foreground pops out, or in, which ever lol!

yeah, when i look at this and i cross my eyes, it remains looking flat, not 3D... (i feel silly asking this) are you sure you took 2 pictures, and if you did, are you sure you didnt just use one of them and shift it??? theres nothing 3D here

it does look good, its a nice picture, but in the SBS i cant really see where you restored anything besides just really changing the color of the image and raising the contrast... can you explain what else you did? just curious cause i must be missing something

i think its fine dark... its night time with no lights really... its supposed to be dark. i wouldnt lighten it up any more... if you must go that route in one way or another, instead bring out more details at the focal points to make them more pronounced, and bring in a little more detail in the darker parts to keep it balanced.

The Tree Of Colosseo

bddesign says:

would look better i think if you removed the grass texture on the very top where the arches are, and if you lowered the saturation on the rest of the grass, and darkened it a bit. would make it look less fake.

THE GRASS

bddesign says:

lol! whats with the water??? and why is it so deep on such a flat surface? just saying. no offense but is the use of water a lazy way of making the legs look more real- you dont need to work on the detail+footprints+shadows? dont get me wrong, its not a bad entry, but im wondering what the reason is for the water? its like it just came out of no where...

blue lagoon

bddesign says:

woah nice!

something i would do with the strings that hold up the swans... maybe take your pen tool and draw out some lines that tightly wrap around your wires so it has more of a rope feel to it using a brush size of about 1 px with some shading in parts... will make it more dynamic and real looking... it would be a shame if you kept this entry the way it is being that it looks great, but the wires look pretty crappy. they could use a lot of improving. but over all i like it alot. its a small detail, but it kinda stands out like a sore thumb.

The Rain

bddesign says:

your overlapping step on the left, it drops down, on top, making the motion from top left to bottom right (to the middle) un convincing and kills the illusion, unlike the crossing section on the right which looks good. not sure if that makes sense, but if it makes it easier, try spotting the difference between the two overlapping step sequences and fix the bit on the left so it looks more like the bit on the right.

wow, your cloning skills need some "brushing up" lol... looks good, but its really patchy! try masking in a new wooden texture, instead of this one.

bddesign says:

its easy, just open your psd (if you still have it) and just reveal each layer and describe what you did for each new layer you revealed. simple. thats what i do... sbs's arent tutorials, they are to showcase the authenticity of the techniques used, and so that we know something wasnt ripped off... if you have progress pics, then we know you did it.

bddesign says:

no, quite the opposite, you should emphasise the shadows more... shadows and lighting are key, but shadows need work on the bottom right of the ball.. just make it darker so its not all the same lightness
