Lijep rad,ideja je odlicna.Bravo!!!
Mada ram za ovu kreaciju nekako mi ne okviruje rad kao cjelinu,vec mu daje suprotan efekat.Dali zbog odabira boje ili vrste rama...prije bih rekla zbog odabira boje.Naravno to je moje mišljenje s obzirom da volim kad je na radu postignuta harmonija boja...A u ovom slučaju boja rama ostaje usamljena nad kompletnom slikom.

Srećno,ideja je zaista zadivljujuća!!!

It's wonderful!
I really like the background and the little girl in the foreground :3
Also it's wonderful that the fairies all have the same wings and the fairy on the left looks sooooo wonderful!
Something I don't like? Well, thats hard to say .. only a little shadwo on the stone with the fairy far below would be nice :3
Very good job ! :heart:

OMGosh dear. you did a wonderful job on this. your choice of stock is outstanding. there are a few things i have noticed but they are very minor. the composition is a little bit to crisp. i don't know if you have any old BW photos but if you look at them they are soft and blurry. if you use a little Gaussian blur and maybe a little grain it would make it look older. i have noticed the fantastic border you used. if you would have taken a bit of the yellowed color and seeped it into the photo it would have looked like it might have had a little water damage. oh wait i do see a little of the yellow seepage. sorry. maybe if you added more it would have been more pronounced or it is because it is on DA that messed it up. anyway that was all i could see my dear. this is for you :clap: :clap:

I actually have a lot BW photos, and they are different. One kind is blurry and grayish, and other kind is sharp, with high contrast. I tried to make this blend of those two stiles but maybe I should have stayed with one stile… Thanks for the advice!!!

Lovely!
Great model you find in that girl, picking that flower, still innocent; thus the fairies are not shy at all.
The way you added the fairies is very well done, walking the pebbles and half hiding between the reeds.
I think the overall picture is a bit too sharp, but that is just my opinion. I do like the tear or crack in the left border. (I've tried that, and could not get it done...)
