Vision & Impact: WOW. WOW. WOW. Hahaha. That's how I wanna start. This work is something. Real something. First, great conceptualization on this one! You hit the jackpot, as many would say. Great job dear friend! <img src="…" width="20" height="20" alt=":clap:" title="Clap - :clap:"/>

Originality: This is well-thought of idea. As I've said, very conceptualized work. Though not really original in the sense that the battle of mind versus heart is already a cliche, but putting it into art is the one that made this very original. Great job! Awesome thinking! <img src="…" width="15" height="15" alt=";)" title=";) (Wink) - ;)"/>

Technique: First, I like the main composition of this. The battle of the weight is a nice idea. The colors are perfect as well, and it blended well with the background. The position and the orientation are perfect as well. AWESOME!

OVERALL, THIS IS A GREAT PIECE. Congrats on the DD. You deserve it! <img src="…" width="20" height="20" alt=":clap:" title="Clap - :clap:"/>

Wow, this is an amazing picture. I love the concept behind it.
Sure we all must have thought to ourselves about whether listening to our heart or our mind. But capturing that ideology in this wonderful picture is just 'awesome'.
I coudnt help but fave it the second i saw this as i just love the concept.
I would have loved it even more on a darker background though and maybe perhaps you could have used better looking objects to display.
Overall, this is just a great picture and the concept is going to make a lot of people wonder about who they truly listen to.
Their hearts or their minds.

Thats awsome to have people backing you!

Thanks a lot for writing the critique!
You are right with the objects, it was a spontaneous idea and I only took what I had at home without searching for nicer objects :)
For the white background: I know many people do not like it, but I do somehow, maybe I should think of an alternative :)

your welcome,
i just got my premium membership 2 days back and i plan to become more of a serious critique than just random commentor! :P
i love the picture anyway, once again i must say..amazing concept! :D
im glad that you thought it was fair!
oh! i would have loved seeing this in something darker like gray or maybe black. you could always experiment :D
laura242's avatar
I also should write more critiques, it is actually an amazing feature, but I am so lazy :p
I made the picture more than half a year ago, in the meantime I have taken more colors in my backgrounds, this was like my white period :D But you are right, I have taken a black one only once, maybe I should get it out again :D
Xx-black-lite-xX's avatar
i just started writing! its a lot of work huh! :P
white period eh! tht sounds cool :D

id love seeing the black ones!
i tend to like darker colors more often
nd, woah! lots of people agree with my critique!
which is quite satisfying :D
laura242's avatar

I think this is the most direct image I've ever seen, when measuring heart and reason in one's decisions. I loved the way how a simple composition managed to get such an impact on viewers.
I also liked the idea of balance in decisions, and the fact that neither heart or reason are weighing more on «the scale».
The «cartoonish idea» in the concept of this work was also very well achieved, as it seems the objects may come to life at any time! Trully a great work and valuable lesson for people who may be trying too hard to carry out a message.

To me, this is one of your most delicate and thoughtful concepts. While the background is just plain white and thus appropriately minimalistic, you've put a lot of work in the main subject. The model of the brain is very detailed and I can only imagine how hard it is to get that shape down.

The idea itself is both cute and thoughtful and picks up a very old problem well know to most lovers.

I am not a big fan of the whtie background, but I guess it works here and is, as I said, appropriate.

Keep up the good and creative work!

Firstly, thank you very much for writing this :hug:
I know that you do not like the background, but I think it is perfect to bring attention to the subjects and by that to the meaning. I guess it is simply a matter of taste :D
Oh, and this was not only for decisions concerning love but also life whether you choose what you love or what you should rationally do :)

Naja, genug Englisch =P Danke, dann weiß ich auch mal, was du magst :D :smooch:
