So very nice!
I see you put on some jewelry and make-up :)
Looks like the bird is seeking shelter for an upcoming shower??

This is great, especially the bird. The sky is troublesome for me. It looks like a really foggy day, but it is all clear sunny on the maiden. The skill you have shown cutting all of this out is impressive!

Okay I'm following the destructions and have to Critique your pic (although this is going to be REALLY hard lol),First off, I love how the bird is a Cardinal and blends in well with the background and the maiden's dress, although i only see two things a little off (now I could be totally wrong since I'm still a beginner so feel free to hush me lol) on the bird, you have the lighting on it's breast whereas it is on the front of the maiden and to the right side of the column that it is standing on. Also It's legs look kinda weird, although it's standing on air..perhaps move it a tad bit up so it looks like it's standing on the eave of the column more:)
Again, if I am off base, PLEASE don't hesitate to let me know..it truely is a lovely picture!:)

Thank you so much for your comments. I was totally baffled by the bird, and hoped someone would give me some helpful advice. I'll go back and do a little alteration. :hug:

Thanks for your comment. Would you mind telling me how the perspective is off.

It seems to me that the woman is just a little too tall when you take the backgroung into consideration. The top of the columns goes almost to the roof of the building which makes the woman look just a little too tall because the wall is not far enough away from her in the background.
