"Life isn't about waiting for the storm to pass,
It's about learning to dance in the rain!"

Working on this piece was nothing less than struggle, struggle and a lot of real struggle, the idea for this was inspired by my wonderful friend :iconpjenz: who always urged me to never give up. Thank you so much dear!:heart:

I would really appreciate if someone would post a constructive criticism and let me know the areas where I might improve..this is certainly not the best from me!

Critique by A-Wakefield Sep 25, 2014, 9:12:57 AM
My first reaction on this piece is that it is gorgeous! Very eye-catching colors. Blending is on point, as well as detail in the foreground. The only thing that caught me off guard, was the bridge. The amount of blur used in the background seems too heavy to me...as though it shouldn't be quite that far away. I still have a long way to go in practicing before my opinion can be trusted :giggle:, but a good person to ask about blur is :devkushelirmel-stock:. She has an excellent tutorial about the depth of field when using blur.

Even so, I love this work! I think you did a terrific job! :la: :clap:

no way... I know this bridge... I checked the author on shutterstock and compared it with actual photo... I used to live in this city, in Wroclaw. I so loved this place :heart:
Sorry, i just needed to get it out :D What a coincidence! 
Great colours. I also like the mood of this piece.
As for any critique, I'd perhaps blur a bit the lantern in the background (the one on the left). I'd also make lamps dark blue so that they blend a bit more with the rest of the scenery and don't stand out that much. 
Apart from such minor details, I truly like the way you manipulated the model. Plus again the colours... gorgeous :love: Plus the general theme of this work, very uplifting and encouraging :)

I like this very much. Everything just fits so well together. I do have a little suggestion. I believe that the lamp on the left should be tone down a bit since it's at the level behind the first lamp. Do you know what I mean? Otherwise, well done!

Great concept - not a criticism, rather an observation, the sharpness of the reflection of the bridge could match the bridge itself but the reflection and the ripples are fantastic and really well done. The further lamp coumn is perhaps a little bit too big also in relation to the footpath wheras the nearer one looks perfect?

Oh yeah I think your observation is right about the background lamp, I too had doubts as to it being right, thank you so much for letting me know, I do appreciate it!:heart:
