wish she look into the butterfly and her hand stand out more of the bg . Just two tiny things which imo not really make any different of this gorgeous mood of work Martynas.
3 Cardiff   (8/7/2007 4:32:54 AM)
You took Joe's advice and found something. Beautiful and intriguing!
4 Martynas   (8/7/2007 4:44:48 AM)
#3 Cardiff: I did it long before Joe's advice Cardif. And I like the previous pic as much as this. Question of taste, you know. The mood of traquility, silence, near to "dead planet" mood was the point of yesterdays pic - any subject would distract. This is different pic and different mood. And many pics yet to come - bad and good, dark and light, colourful and black, pop and not.

I like this image very much, excellent tone and absolutely beautiful.

Excellent PS work on your yesterdays wonderful picture!
Like the blue shiny colortone and mood in this image, though you did a great job here.
For my taste I would clone out the butterfly for a more stronger image and the lady stands a bit high in the upper frame in the composition. But nevertheless love it!!
7 Martynas   (8/7/2007 5:12:15 AM)
#6 Wim Lassche: thank you Wim! Yes I was thinking about it - does the butterfly add something or not? At the same time it is a bit distracting, but at the same time it softens a bit that very dark mood. So let's see what others say......
8 Gaga (Dragan Babovic)   (8/7/2007 5:23:37 AM)
Beautiful and poetic work.
9 jank   (8/7/2007 5:41:10 AM)
Nice mysterious mood. I think it's better without the butterfly, or the opposite: make it stand out more.

Lot of potencical but actually this one doesn't work for me. Maybe you could fix some "noisy" areas. The image seems very spottedto meand that might hurtthe shot, IMO. Regards.
18 Geralyns Creations (just plain ole me! )   (8/7/2007 7:51:07 AM)
Artistic, creative, beautiful, it is you! But for me the butterfly seems to be distracting and out of place.

I love the little butterfly.
22 Rick Seufert (? )   (8/7/2007 8:45:39 AM)
Leave the butterfly. That's what makes it art to abstract. It's the last thing you would expect in this picture.

A very Ruud-esque image!!!
Only might not have been too centered here, and also,I don 't like some spots in the sky! They really look too distracting!!!
Spot on mood created here!!!
Great, Martynas!!!
25 CherylB (I only lie when I do not like your pic)   (8/7/2007 9:05:00 AM)
I would like to see her lower and a bit smaller, I like it but liked the original maybe more.. :)..agree to lose butterfly

26 CherylB (I only lie when I do not like your pic)   (8/7/2007 9:05:35 AM)
..or change the tone of the butterfly to fit..

I love the mood here..absolutely great...but forgive me, will be picky;-)...sorry, have not read the above comments deliberately not to be influenced be, if some of my remarks were already made above-I am sorry...Do not treat my words as the words of critique...treat them only as my suggestion-as I truly love the idea of this image, and would like to see it perfect...
1) the lady-she is great-just she is either too big, or placed a big too high as I definitely miss more space above her head
2) butterfly-love it...and love it tone differnt from the overall tone-just she is not looking at him-which this image somehow asks for-thus I would place this butterfly on her dress, eg somewhere here..and maybe even would flipped that butterfly so he was somehow facing her...I just see her looking at her dress with such natural jewellery;-)
3)there is some small problem with her left hand, thus I would remove these cloudsas they interact with that hand too much..or maybe put a butterfly in that hand(?);-)
I truly encourage you to work on this image a bit more as this is absolutely great idea, and with your skills- "fixing" may take not much time...Warm hugs, Jolanta

Truly love the mood of this image...needs some more PS work, but the idea itself is great, thus my top ten recommendation...Warm hugs, Jolanta
30 Joliveira (Rick Xavier)   (8/7/2007 10:09:49 AM)
My feeling: just a crop and Cheryl´s thought about the butterfly (orange or red tone).
Great image.
Thanks for sharing! ;)

Agree with Rudi, cheryl and Jolanta here.
Is this dust?

PatriciaP (Hope pb aliases will stay off other sites)   (8/7/2007 1:23:40 PM)
I like Hassan's crop which off-centers the lady more for a nice composition. I like the butterfly but think it could be a bit smaller so as not to compete with the beautiful model. Wonderful tones and amazing work...we could all learn from you! My fave so far today.
38 ELLI DIMITRIOU   (8/7/2007 4:00:05 PM)
Everything seems to have been said already. A wonderful idea. I also agree with the extra space on top and off center crop. Best regards Elli.

42 Elisabeth   (8/7/2007 4:36:11 PM)
Very interesting and very creative work with a great mood in the result!
I like Hassan's crop too and I could imagine this pic without a butterfly to concentrate the impression more to the lady.
But a picture as it is!
