reggy's not MY little pony:
God these things are awful! I like the use of depth of field and the background stars you've added, but sheesh that pink! LCD monitors even when calibrated can turn this colour into a neon disaster, and this figure in the foreground appears over saturated, it screams at the eye too much for me. Again other than the photo of someones collection, what are you trying to say to me?
flake you have made some good points in this discussion and for the most part i agree, that said i can take some criticism and enjoy knowing why people dont like my images and thank you for telling me why my image only got 1 vote - being told "its ok" and thats nice without knowing the reasons doesnt help.
I will now tell you the thoughts behind my image.
Firstly it is my daughters collection hence the name not MY little pony, my daughter is 3 years old and very "girly".
So i tried to take the colours in the image and make a thing of them, i tried to make the image into something "girly" which being a bloke i know little about but the colours to me are girly and over processed as i think a girl would like a picture of her ponies to be (a 3 year old girl).
It only got 1 vote and i knew it was a poor image but it was a collection of things someone had collected which is how i took this weeks theme not like some of the other entries (no offence by the way)
lord knows how frustrating it is to only get 1 vote i think you managed 2 flake, it sucks to lose and we lost to a worthy oponent in terricks shot (well done terrick by the way)
but what doesnt kill you makes you stronger so they say and i will be back determined to make my photography better and if that means taking more knocks on here then so be it
