Who is that girl I see Staring straight Back at me? Why is my reflection someone I don't know? Somehow I cannot hide Who I am Though I've tried When will my reflection show Who I am inside?
I'm finally continuing with my Disney series! Without further ado, here's Mulan. I thought it was fitting to submit this on Chinese New Year! I'd also like to dedicated this piece to *ElenaDudina and =ForestGirl, as they both have birthdays today and are great inspirations to me.
Very beautiful manipulation! Beautiful use of a range of colors.
The background of this implies a bright day, but the subject does not seem to be at all affected by the sunlight. Maybe you're trying to create a rich contrast by showing that the brightness of the sun does not affect the dark mood of this young woman? In any case, if not even her umbrella shows a hint of a "reflection," it just seems like two stocks on top of each other.
I would suggest lightening up the color of the umbrella to add the depth this picture needs. Maybe some more on the right side (her facing the viewing) of her dress could also have a reflection to show that she reflects that part of the world.
Amazing work! If you make these improvements, the work will look even more splendid!
I'm going to watch you so I can see some more of your fantastic photomanips when you release them!
