Museum collage

Post by pop511 » Tue Aug 21, 2018 2:03 pm

Not sure where to go with this.

Building is the Art Museum
The statue is located near the front steps
Portrait is one of the exhibits

May bring in more portraits and place them into the background as a faded element and perhaps rotate
Your thoughts?

I like it...maybe critique next time I dunno..since you did ask for thoughts mine would be some desaturation of the color lower right to better blend with the rest of the image..not having tried that I don't know if it would help or hinder.

I really like this which will probably come as no surprise since most folks here know I dabble in this kind of stuff for my fun. You've assembled some nice components that work well together and a great background. I like the way you've masked the edges of the components very much. Some things I'd consider if it were mine which it's not:
-go back and straighten or at least align the verticals of the different components so that they don't confuse my eyes, the one on the left is the most troubling visually
-slightly mute the colors of the figures on the right to fit better into the muted color scheme
-paint out the column part that's intruding on the face of the statue on the horse
-adding more portraits doesn't seem necessary but if you want them, I would make them fades/transparent and in the background
-instead of portraits I might consider something with text like the museum program or ticket faded and partially invisible
-when you get done, a texture over the whole thing can help give extra unity to these things.

I think these elements are doing better.

I think it's to color, or maybe lack of, more than anything else, that and there is color and there isn't.

Basically, the image would hold if were bi-color, but the color in the portrait throws it out of balance. S-
