Nice work. Coloring the jackets was a good choice, they would have looked like siamese twins otherwise.

With a light source that big, the whole hill should be much lighter, not only a small edge. The top of the hill on the right side looks much better. I guess, when the left side would be darker the image would look more real.

I like the mood of the image. It looks good.
One small thing: the waterlevel at the right side of the image looks a little strange.

Very good composition. I like the choice of sources. Small suggestion: darken the top of the hills on the left side of the castle.

Nice composition but the masking needs some work. I had also preferred that you left some color in the sky.

Very good work. I like the concept and it is very well executed.

Good job on the blending and coloring. I'm only curious why you flipped the image.

Good choice for B/W. I like the contrast (and agree with the author about the crop).

City Hall
avatar dustfinger

For me it's a great shot, but not of a balcony. The dear is the real focal point of the image, due to it's position in the frame, lines pointing at it and the color contrast btween deer and background.

Good find. Well composed.

Grilled fish: delicious! I like the repeated shapes in the image.

Good job. I like how the green constrasts with the muted color of the hare.

Well done. Makes me smile

Ah, that's a nice big cup of tea (i only wonder how the strawberry tea would look like).

Nice flowers, only they look a little flat; some dodge and burn may help.

Nice idea, the elephant is well done. It would have been nice if you had done a little more with source (if only using it to create some abstract background).

I like the way the lines work in the image, but i also think a much tighter crop would be better.

Nice job. I like the coloring.

Great job! Well blended, good composition and coloring.

I can imagine a story behind this image, but i am not sure, it will be the same one as you intended. Some parts are difficult to see without looking at the high res.
The iguana should be much darker; almost a silhouette as he is backlighted. There is not that much light reflected from the interior of the sauna.

Nice work on shading and blending. Looks good.

Jabba!!

Good job. The building and fence are well constructed. To enhance the old photo effect you could add a vignette.

Good edit. It's much better now.

Convincing image, well blended.

Chupacabra
avatar dustfinger

Nice image, i like the coloring. It would be nice if you could correct the shadow of the seagull. The shadows on the seagull itself and the skull suggest the light is coming from the left. Light from the back would never create such a shadow on a vertical plane.

Sharp Dressed Deer.
avatar dustfinger

Good concept. Good job on the proportions and composition. I would sharpen the skull and the horns and/or enhance the constrast.

Nice blend of images. I like the coloring; it looks like old photos.

Good idea, only it would have been better when the edges of the couple were blurred a bit.

Nice drawing work, but the image needs a background other than a color gradient.

Cerberus Re-imagined

If you would extend the lines of the tiles on the floor, they would cross at horizon level. This means you would need to see also the upper side of the fireplace.

I like like the setup in the background. Well done.

Elegant image, well made.

seaolin
avatar dustfinger

Nice work on the hairs and the coloring. I would preferred a little more space at the side she is looking to and less space at the top. The image is a little too static now.
Apart from that it looks good.

Precipice of Change

Glad i looked at the SBS, since this is a very good job. Nice work on the constuction of the canoe and the blending of the sources. I think the image would have more impact if you had cropped it to the right and decreased the blues in the sky.

Apart from some perspective problems a great scene. Looks like a lot of work!

Well blended, good pick of sources. The simple division into two planes works very well.

Convincing looking animal. Good job on the blending of the horns and the color matching.

Good job on the blending. It would be nice if you could add a highlight to the tail.

Interesting combination of species, good matching proportions. The background could use a little blur to make the creature more standout.

You need a slightly bigger bowl to keep those in the living room! Great imiage, well blended!

Good find, but the lighting is a little odd. Warm sunlight from the left and moonlight from the back.
