    I chose this challenge, as most of you who know me, I have a passion for emotional manipulations and I would like to see how you guy's do on the subject.

    Alright Inkz. Looks like the challenge will be in creating a unique expression of emotion. Well, not to downplay the manipulation, the PS part! After all . . .

    I'm looking forward to the entries. Thanks for the very Inkz-Style Challenge.

    I haven't had much practice at all with doing photo manipulations, but I have to say, I really enjoyed doing this! I need to learn more about adding lighting - I just kind of guessed with the shadow. But hope this is easy on the eyes (: Can't wait to see what everyone else comes up with!

    Beautiful color mix Jessica. I actually think the lighting is a bit too much on the lady. Her shadow may be at a slightly different angle than those cast by the grass. But more importantly, when you zoom in, you can see that there needs to be a harder and darker shadow to anchor her foot to the ground. Also, under the folds of the gown you should see shadowing. The other point is the sharpness/blur of the grass and the girl do not match. One of the secrets of a really good manipulation is getting things to blend so that they look naturally part of the same scene.

    And no, I don't think I'm expert at that, lmao. Hardly. But those are my observations. I think it is a moving image.

    Thanks Clare, I will try to fix these inconsistencies. I guess it wouldn't be fair to edit my submission, so I'll leave that as is and just edit it for myself.

    If you want to edit your work, go ahead, deadline is the 15th so edit away or even do more submissions.

    Your emotional manip is beautiful and you can feel the emotion within the picture. Great work. Just maybe blend the model in more to the background. Just lower the saturation a little.
