omg my first attempt at Photomanipulation... I looked at a few tutorials, but it still feels so basic... ^^;
Oh well, I guess you gotta start somewhere...

The entire piece is quite an introspective beauty. The moon in the background is well executed, the water gives you that flowing feeling, and the colours fit together as one. As a whole, it moved me; it's almost as if I can feel the melancholy violin music playing.

One of the things that made me a bit confused was the central focus. Was it the moon, the woman, or the violin? It would help distinguishing it if there were more contrasting effects, such as making the violin shinier, adding shadows to the woman, or giving the moon a bright glare that shows bounced light off of the woman.

Lastly, I just wanted to add a note that the hand and bow positions are a bit off. It doesn't detract the picture from its impact, but I advise you to look at references in the future. Anyway, great job! It'd be a few millions years before I graduate to your level, but I hope this helped!

I am in love with this great artwork you've done. It is truly a wonderful beautiful masterpiece. She reminds of that girl who plays the violin on YouTube, Lindsey Stirling, she's a great violinist with a awesome Dubstep beat in the background. I love Dubstep! You put a lot of effort into this masterpiece.

I truly love it very much. It deserves a lot of likes. And I love her hair and I love the background it suites the artwork if you know what I mean. Moonlight Symphony is a name that suites the artwork very well. I love it so much. And I love violins. I just love they way how they sound with certain type of music, truly amazing.

The subject fits perfectly (clothes, makeup, equipment)! The moon looks so powerful, and the stars look like glitter. The subject is rich in determination, feeling, and beauty. The ocean looks so natural, and large. I wish my dad could do that. XD Also, lighting is excellent, I can see everything perfectly, I guess you would have to have light stronger than the moon. The left side of the moon looks powdery, plunging into water, etc. Also, I like how the girl doesn't smile, it really looks like you just snapped photos like they weren't really planning it. Really great. Keep up the good work!

Very good style and setting, the use of the moon and water is very well used. However, as much as it is a good idea, too many people have already done pictures at night of playing instruments. I like the title as well, not many people think of the music and only the instrument or background, in this you can tell you spent time working on, or at least thinking of what you would do with it. Over all; very good vision, blending, colors, and over all look. But beware doing things people over use and do too much. Good luck. :3

The Picture is Beautiful and I Love the Way you put so much Detail Into the Girl, The Background is Very Colourful. The Girls hair could maybe have been a little bit longer and I really like the Violin She looks Like a Siren and Its a Very Eye Catching Piece of Art.

The background is Very Detailed and The Moon makes the Picture Complete as well as the stars
The girls Outfit also completes the picture.

You have great Talent I would like to see more of these Pictures. Her Eyes and Makeup are very well done in detail

It is truly a great piece that grabs attention and has alot of impact. i love how the background flows with the girl and makes her pop out. The black border works with the piece to bring it out also. great use of artistic elements. the background sets the whole scene makes it a very to warming and elegant piece of work to look at. i love the expression on the girls face focusing on the delight of playing a very graceful instrument. also love how her clothing fits perfectly into the scene. good work for your first attempt keep it up <img src="e.deviantart.net/emoticons/s/s…" width="15" height="15" alt=":)" data-embed-type="emoticon" data-embed-id="391" title=":) (Smile)"/>.

Personally, I see how it is basic, but for me, basic but powerful has always been my favourites! The impact is straightforward, and it doesn't get crowded with useless images. I think it's really good! Thumbs Up
