Feedback please, Tweaked First Final Piece...

This is what I have at the moment.  It's getting there and I'm pretty happy with it but I'm not sure what's missing.  Any opinions on how it can be improved would be really welcome!


  1. okay - I did indeed say 'rich black' for those shadows, but now (groan!) I think they don't have a relationship with the colour palette of your scene :-(

    Are your shadows on a layer? I'm going to suggest you start over, Molly - I know this is NOT what you want to hear, but this scene is working well - the shadows are not; I think you need to do more picture research into shadows - look at their opacity/transparency/diffusion - for instance, the shadow edge nearest the light source would be more diffuse - and everything would feel more feathered at the edges because of the diffuse light source. Don't despair, Molly! Motor through it!

  2. ... still thinking about your image, Molly - are those shadows in perspective? I think part of the issue is they don't seem connected perspectivally (is that a word?) to the rest of the image - I don't know why, but think this image will be useful...
