Showtime Storytime

Inspired by the cover of the new Nightwish DVD, Showtime Storytime. I actually had a bit of disaster with this piece... near the end of it, I'd saved and closed Photoshop, but when I tried to reopen, the PSD told me it was not compatible with my version of PS. After a brief panic attack, I downloaded Gimp and mercifully it opened the PSD, but a lot of the layer styles were screwed and the result was certainly very different. In the end, I had to download a piece of software called Irfran View which allowed me to save a PNG of the PSD so I could at least finish it.

Questions for Critique:

1) Is it too monotone?
2) I'm rather proud of how the reflection in the water turned out, but does it look realistic enough for you?

Aww thank you :hug: I'm glad you like it! Do you think it's too monotone? Should there be more colour?

I think it's perfect like this. :) The atmosphere, the light and reflects are very realistic. With more colours, it could be more beautiful maybe, but also less realistic I think.

Really great, the composition is masterful, It really looks like another world, somewhere one would definitely travel to, to escape our world for a while.

Aww thank you :hug: Do you think it could do with more colour? Does it have too much blue?

1) Is it too monotone?

I think that it adds to the mood rather well! I think that the fade in the upper right corner could be a little more gradual and fog-like, but it is cool either way.

2) I'm rather proud of how the reflection in the water turned out, but does it look realistic enough for you?

It looks great, I really like way you did the ripples in the water.

It is not monotonous, its lovely, but it does need a little light

And yes the water is realistic:-)
