This is a discussion on New Member within the Critiques forums, part of the Photography & Fine art photography category; I am posting my latest image for critique. It's a different style for me, so honest, constructive criticism is solicited ...

    (I hope the photo shows up, as I have never uploaded one in this manner before.)

    Great! The image worked! This is a composite of three original photos that I took, heavily layered in Photoshop. Again, constructive criticism is solicited and most appreciated!

    Here's the link to another site where the original three photos I took for the composite are.

    I'm not sure why you would add that in, nobody suggested it wasn't your work.

    Either way here's my critique.

    I really like tis photograph - nice work!
    My main criticism is the dark line running through the center. Since this was photoshopped, I would definitely get rid of it. As well I find it a bit (just a bit) too light on the left side. If this were my shot I'd bring back up some detail.

    But this is a really nice shot, and a nice technique.

    I'd love to see more!

    LOL! I got that comment on the other two sites that I've posted it to. People thinking it was a photograph of someone else's art! So I just added that straight away after hearing it two other places!

    Anyway, about the photo and your critique, thank you. I must say that I burned the line on the right in to that degree because it gives it the authenticity of a folded (or unfolded) piece of paper. Any less burn (and trust me, I tried) doesn't give it the same effect. I will try your suggestion as to the left side of the photo being too light, and try to burn it in a bit and see what happens. The tree, in my most humble opinion, is perfect, so I can't change that and still be happy with the photo!

    Thanks again for your critique!

    I think marco is correct about the line. It takes away from this beautifull photo.
