Hello.

This is great first attempt! You have made the most common mistake made by noobs in that your image is entirely too dark. The details are hidden by darkness and there are quite a few lighting issues that subtract from the believability of the scene. I like the idea of your composition, but without the title, I would have been lost as to the meaning of the imagery. When I first looked at it, my first thought was that your were depicting a nightmare scene.

Overall a great start! You're on the right track. Practice, practice, practice.............and ask questions!

I understand!

The thread title was an addition to the the image title of "Encounter" which provided some clarity as to what you were going for, but for me, it was in stark contrast with the imagery. A little boy with his hands in his pockets, out in the incredibly dark woods at night encountering a vicious dragon...............that's the stuff of nightmares and not an encounter with a positive outcome. At least if you had stuck with the "Encounter" title, the image would have made some sense and left your viewing audience with some mystery as to what might be going on. We could have drawn our own conclusions. Mine was more like RUN little boy!! You're about to be a late night snack!
