I think this image would have been greatly enhanced with a blue background. The white competes with the highlights, making the entire image washed out.

caveat: i'm a beginner. that said...i think this image is way too bright.

You turned it almost into a drawing, hard to see 'metal' here. I'll rate it a 4.

This is way too bright.

The highlights are a bit overblown. Maybe toning down the flash or making some post processing adjustments will help.

Seems a bit over exposed to me. Not my fav subject matter....

The wizard looks a little flat - perhaps the stright on lighting did this. A little more side lighting and it would add some depth I think. Good job with the placement on the background, but again, I think you could have cropped with the wizard to the left of the shot a little more to have him staring "into" the shot. Applying the "rule of thirds" here possibly would have made the image more interesting.

Doesnt scream "metal" to me like I think a challenge should. Nice though.

i think a blue or purple BG would have made the wizard stand out in this photo..still a 8 for me

Love the figurine. It would have been a nice touch to place him in some grass or against some natural background. For me the white is too harsh especially with the brightness on the wizard.

wow, at first glance he looks like he is just a sketching! technically smart, but i guess the main subject doesnt capture me.
