There's something strange about the background; it may be because of the darker neighboring shadows, but the light on the right tower looks brighter than the left side. That's not to say it's unrealistic or that there's something wrong on a technical level (because of the heavy clouds and angle of the sunlight, you could have all kinds of shadows playing with the light on the hill), but it feels like the eye is meant to be drawn from the man to the left tower, and probably follow the stairs back to the foreground, and due to the higher contrast on the right tower, the eye instead travels from man to left tower to right tower, and then kind of hangs.
I think this would work better if you had left the right tower mostly in shadow, and let some light spill on those ruins and the lower stairs on the hillside, which would draw the eye to the cliff, back to the man, and so on, leading the eye in a loop and not allowing it to leave the painting.
In any case, really beautiful painting. I was filtering through my daily pile of watches, and this caught my eye.
Thanks for the input! I do believe the effect is caused by the higher contrast on the right between the clouds and tower, and that fading the light cast from left to right would ease that misdirection. Good catch!
Hello again, my offer would be only a cover for a comic own noncommercial left alone in my hands, the idea of the cap would be a cowboy standing with the back field and a woman hugging him from behind but like a fantasma.desde and to inform you that as you would do in business is no silver heart by medio.Mis greetings and thanks for answering.
Like the comment above, I definitely thought "EPIC" when I first saw this. It reminds me of scenes going on in my head for some of the recent books I've read or maybe I've been playing Assassin's creed too much and i'm dreaming shots like this... .
The perspective draws you first to the figure and then to the castle, making you think: Is the castle the goal? Or is it the scene of previous carnage by the figure under the arch? It works well to inspire the mystery of the lone figure.
I think enlarging the figure/arch section to give a sort of over the shoulder kind of perspective could be cool. But the overall epic shot works really well.
