I have a calibrated monitor so your images will look different on my PC.

You really do create an impact here when you look at this piece. The red outfit and the black tights really go well against the white of the model's leg. The soft lighting really give it that atmosphere and feeling that you want in a piece like this.

The only problem with this piece is her leg. The leg which is closest to us to too bright, the highlights on it are clearly blown which any user would focus on mostly, rather than this amazing image as a whole.

Overall, a very good image, except for that one part.

Now, remember that I have a calibrated monitor so this photo might be appearing differently from other PCs!

The symmetry of the piece cannot be doubted of being completely accurate and the position of the model is good as well. Overall the image is fine however the main issue I have with this piece is mainly is to do with lighting. On the bottom right hand said, you cannot fully see where his body ends and the background begins as its appears that it has been merged together. Maybe get a small soft light on the background to try and pervent this in the future. The other part that I find uneasy is his arms, the arms appear very thin, due to what lighting is on it. I'm not sure how you would prevent this but many more experimenting might be a good thing, if you were to retake this shot.

This shot cannot be faulted on the originality of the piece and I can see what you were trying to do. However, I felt that it doesn't work for me, mainly because of the area that it was focused on.

I would have liked it if it was sharp on the bottom of the image rather than the middle to give it a better effect. By that I mean that the rocks, water and the sheep at the bottom to be in focus instead and slowly going out of focus towards the top of the hill.

Overall, a really good try at this shot and I would love to see this type of shot attempted again.

Ah those old versions of dA.... feels like a long time ago now!
