Geisha by BrokenFayth Geisha by BrokenFayth
Half-way through this piece I lost my inspiration and my ideas for it. There had been a lot more I wanted to do with it, but I couldn't remember what. So, after waiting a week I decided to stop here.
I'm rather unsatisfied with it since in a sense it is unfinished, but I decided to submit it anyways.
Probably gonna scrap later. (or maybe my inspiration will return and I will be able to finish it)

Model- ladydove7-stock
Background- Auhyzalz-Stock

I think it looks beautiful just the way it is. If you add anymore, i think that would make it look too fussy and lose the simplicity.

Hi sorry for the late reply, but i really like this image, she looks well situated in the image, your outlines are very clean around the model, looks very realistic, actually one of the best pictures done with my stock images, the simplicity is awsome, some people over do it, like my self sometimes, but well done

Oh how pretty! I really didn't realize how popular these shots would be when I went to photography =ladydove7 (she's the one that sent me over here) and it's just blown me away to see my kimono used in such gorgeous works like this one. It really is an honor. +Fav ^__^ You are so talented.

Ohh I do so love the arrangment of the composition. You've managed to line up the model and perspective perfectly! To help bring emphasis to the figure, perhaps you can make the bg slightly cooler toned and darken it a bit so the Geisha stands out more?

Another option might be to pull the figure over to the left so the shadowed half of the umbrella overlaps the bright area of highlighting on the building, as the highlights on the Geisha and on the building seem to be fighting for emphasis in the image.

Either way, it's hard to find good photomanips where the differing elements actually look as if they were made that way, so I definitely think you should keep this in your gallery :nod:
