It is not everyday you encounter art that completely makes you rethink the way you view it and the art that I try to create. This artwork caught my eye instantly! I have never seen the color of yellow used so masterfully before. Its not to bright and over powering and it has a warmth that draws you into the photo. I really like the flower elements that you used. Today I was looking at some flowers and wondering how I could use it in a photo manipulation. Then I stumble apon your beautiful work. Your technique is flawless especially the retouching. I am still learning but getting better everyday. I will certainly look at your work as inspiration for my future projects! I like the flower petals on her eyes and how you got the blue of her eyes to stand out as a focal point for the photo! Your are truly an art master at what you do! Great work and I wish you even more success in your beautiful work!
You've requested a critique on this one and to be honest there's not much to criticize. The only thing I can see in this picture that is slightly off balance (so to say) is the kind of odd position of the left hand. The position of the fingers is a bit distracting and it looks as if she's picking her nose. The rest of the composition is fine. The styling and this whole sparkling yellow theme are quite stunning - nothing to say here. It is clear that the main idea is to look as if the model is a part of the flowers (and as such - glowing among them) and that's achieved pretty well. All in all the picture is really good, I personally like it a lot. Cheers!
