Boy and dog

Critique by FeatherFlighte
This is a really great piece of art. I love the expression on both subjects' faces, and I really like the peaceful emotion it evokes. If there's one thing I think could make this piece better, I would say to maybe add a soft color to the background. It could be maybe a very pale green or blue, but I think that might put us in the scene a bit better. However, overall, I think that this is amazingly drawn and really puts us in the minds of both the boy and the dog, just being together. Thank you for posting this!

Postcard from China 16

Critique by maximilianobianco
I really like the composition here and overall I think its a great job. I would have probably cropped a bit more on the left side. The end of the dress is lost, that would have been nice to see but since it is not there I would have opted to crop it a bit closer on the left side. Just a bit more room on the right side would, I think, have given us just a bit more impact. Having the couple give a bit more of a turn toward the camera, so more of the bride's face was visible might have also added something special, like catching the corner of a soft or tentative smile maybe. The red really stands out here. I see that the background has its flaws but a bit more luminance in your yellows would have helped there I think. Also could have isolated the couple and and toned down the browns/reds in the background only, just a little bit to make the couple pop just a bit more. Opening up the shadows in the groom's clothes might also have helped push the couple out a bit more. Still it's a very nice shot. Hope they got a print, its a nice moment for them. By the way I hate the star rating system, I don't think its a good gauge for any of these points.

Is the meaning of a work of art that which the artist meant it to be, or what it means to the viewer?
