This is a truly wonderful photograph that reminds me of the beauty and calm found in Ireland. I could see myself relaxing in this bed of leaves while listening to my favorite Enya piece. When a picture has the ability to pull you in to the point of you imagining yourself as though you were there, it's a powerful thing. This photograph does that for me.
The emphasis on the color green along with the subtly of the brown and white dress is a great combination. The blur effect on the leaves in the foreground is a nice idea but I think that they are perhaps a bit too blurry or the wrong kind of blur effect. The model's expression is that of getting lost in deep thought or daydreaming and it is fitting for this setting.
All in all, this is a rather fantastic piece and I was glad to critique it. Great work! <img src="e.deviantart.net/emoticons/b/b…" width="15" height="15" alt="" title=" (Big Grin)"/>
I enjoy the humor of this artwork. The mustache coach teaching its wearer the proper techniques of boxing is hilarious. And the man's facial expression as he watches his mustache take on a life of its own is priceless. <img src="e.deviantart.net/emoticons/l/l…" width="15" height="15" alt="" title="LOL"/>
The details are quite nice especially in the shadowing and lighting around the boxer's face. Perhaps, though, the right hand could benefit more by adding some darker lines around the palm as it currently looks more like a bulge from the prospective that it is drawn in.
The background is fitting as it's not too busy but not completely bland and empty. It helps keep focus on the illustration in the foreground whilst not looking out of place.
Altogether, this is a well drawn and humorous illustration that will certainly catch people's attention. Nice work! <img src="e.deviantart.net/emoticons/w/w…" width="23" height="23" alt="" title="w00t!"/>
This is a beautiful piece of photography that truly captures the imagination. For me, the rain drops look like little insects crawling their way toward the center of the plant so as to nourish it from within. And the light that they capture really does add a sense of life to them.
The colors are also very dynamic and bold but at the same time not too heavily saturated. And the subtly of the bokeh in the background adds a nice touch to the entire piece.
Overall, this is truly pleasing to look at and was put together quite nicely.
