Very nice work Peyop. Your sense of texture is excellent and I like the way you control the emotional context with color...or rather lack of it. This place feels cold and forbidding. I give you a...

This is nice, but I feel I've seen it all before. Perhaps a different camera angle etc. I do like the paintings on the buildings, like in west hollywood.

To be honest it's a little boring. There are some good references on how to balance your image composition...The castle could be better positioned. There is also a lack of detail. The Castle isn't...

Interesting comment

Tnanx, I might agree with you to a point. I'm thinking about it. The perspective is wrong on the dark wall, but I fixed that behind the rocks. I like the idea of 16x9 I thought about it, but...

Excellent work

I really like this piece. I would suggest mildly that you add back in some of the wake. A ship that size is not going to leave the bay unrippled. But in general bravo...it has a wonderful soft...

I think it's getting worse now --

I think you've over done things a bit. I don't like the green mist, it obfuscates detail in the castle that helps tell the story. The far lion if that's what it is is distracting...in fact I think...

Evening Docking

I'm trying to get a feeling of a lonely outpost in the mountains some time in the future...perhaps not even on this world. I'd appreciate critique. I like it, but something is out of balance and I...

I think this work is outstanding and I want to go there. I can just see a pirate's ship at anchor in the bay...and Jimmy Buffett playing "one Particular Harbor." Did you learn from Dylan Cole? I...

The lighting values on the boats where the first thing that struck me as being off...too bright...then the windows of course. Great sky...you have serious potential.
