There was a big fight in my house, Woody wanted to enter the challenge, Duckie wanted to enter the challenge. But I had to choose... These friens are iseparable, so Woody invited Duckie in his picture.

What did I do?

Bit burning the edges
Saturation (made a brownisch tint)
Yellow line
Canvas size
Noise reduction

Greetings from the Critique Club

Hi Majanka! In my opinion, you did a very fine job with this challenge. What I liked is the seemingly very real emotional bond between these two inanimate objects. You've convinced the viewer that these two are genuinely friends, from the pose you have Woody in and his gentle touch on his friend Ducky. The burning around the edges creates a nice vignetting touch which also adds to the "relationship" impression. Lighting is very good, focus is fine, and the simple composition helps create the simple message of friendship.

As I mentioned in my comment during the challenge, the one thing I did notice was that the Ducky seems awfully big compared to the Woody, but it's not distracting to me in any way. In fact, it creates just a bit more interest because of the size disparity.

Very nice job!

Congratulations on your top 30 finish, San! I like this shot, although I hate woodies and duckies ;-)

I feel the woodie is totaly lost in this image. Overpowered by the duck. Everything minus the duck seems to be very well done. The duck in itself seems to be done very well, but together... the score drops.
