This is my third attempt to post this... I hate this machine.
I love your use of leaves! Not only does it make the picture dynamic, but you draw so much more into your pictures with them! You get a taste of the environment as well as the weather. You’ve even turned her earring into a wind chime with that dynamism! Lovely detail.
This is so beautiful. I really love the red backlight and how you have picked out the fur and the features of the woman's face with it. The freckles texture is extremely convincing, as are the shadows and shapes of the leaves that are falling. The colour palette makes this piece really dramatic. Excellent!
