I like your concept very much. The lighting is very good as all the colors and blending. But I feel the addition of the fairy should be left out and just have all the animals, the impact would be the same. And I would also move the bird over as I didn't even know what it was at first until I read your credits. I like how the squirrel is peering down at the fox. I hope you don't mind my input and my critique, remember it's just in my opinion only and others may find the fairy a great addition. Good job overall :)

Great composition of very different stocks.
Could be a photoshot.

I also want to say that initially I agreed with =LoriVintage55 about the fairy not being there, but I don't like the bunny nearly as much. I think that same colour as the fox still needs to be there. The fact that the fairy blends in more works better in my opinion. The bunny just takes the focal point away from the fox. It's too bright white.

I suppose I could've found a better bunny than the one I did :D But it was so cute and black and white that I couldn't resist. If you like the idea of a bunny over a fairy, I could find a more blendable one :D Again, I really appreciate your input :hug:

I'm not sure the bunny is the right creature for the piece. It's a bit too domestic looking. If you actually wanted to try another picture, something like this would be better - [link]

(I don't actually know if that picture is good for manipulating, but I thought it was a good example of a cute little creature that would add something to the piece by it's curious nature... and the colour was right. :) )

Saying all that, your original picture is lovely.

I never thought of porcupines as cute until now! :giggle: What an adorable picture. I'll probably leave this picture on the back burner for now, but it's always nice to have ideas to work on when I'm coming up dry for new pictures. I really appreciate all the time you've taken to comment and give suggestions :glomp:
