Nest painting, Tuesday, June 30, 2009

OK. I don't like this. Asking for c & c on this one. I took it a few weeks ago, but am just now working on it and I can't get it to where I like it. There is something wrong. I think I would be a lot happier with it if the huge brown blob of a leaf bottom right weren't there.

I think I applied the pencil effect because the leaf blobs were so bare and calling so much attention to themselves, but it didn't help. I did do a version with just selective color on the eggs but I didn't like that either. Still something wrong. The eggs didn't stand out enough, although I did bump them up in that version. I think the shot is just off and no processing will fix it b/c it is the bottom right leaf that is the big issue. C & C please?
