Hello I am from and I am here to provide you with a critique, remember all critiques are subjective and we will be completely honest and we hope this helps you out in the future.
Okay to start off the piece is very beautiful with nice vibrant colors, great contrast between the warm yellows and the cool magenta. The piece has a lovely serene mood and great atmosphere.
You did an amazing job blending in the braid, the roses and the windmill with the piece so much that I assumed that it was part of the photograph itself. So well done, but the suggestions that I and the other admins have for you is that subject needs to be unified with the background more. Because at the point it looks a little like two separate images and this is really just do to the color. A suggestion by co-founder
“she needs to blend the background color with the subject matter. For example her right side is softly over painted using 'Soft Light' brush mode in photoshop with tangy orange and the left side softly painted with magenta.
Since the major light source is coming from behind, the center region of the subject if dimmer and the use of rim lights is warranted. Meaning the edge of the subject glows and the center could dialed down on the 'Exposure' settings. To paint light without over painting the details: Open a new Layer on top of everything, scroll the Layer's mode to 'Soft Light', then used soft round brush to paint the glow effects. . The use of 'Bloom' light where the light source from behind disperse partially onto the subject is begging to be used, this unifies the subject and the background. Use the same technique like above by creating a new Layer.
To spot errors, she needs to look at the art with fresher view by flipping the canvas horizontally frequently in Photoshop; this techniques has been used by painters since the Renaissance era by viewing their paintings in the mirror.”
You have a really beautiful piece, the only major suggestion is unify the subject with the background color. You are a great digital artist and I hope this helped, if you wish for further critiques then please don't hesitate to note us or submit
