Firstly I'd like to say I really like the idea and that it looks real (I dunno if you did photomanipulation or if you did the whole thing yourself and just used references) Buuuuuuuuuuuut I'm a dancer it's driving me nutters that she's not turned out properly!!! And her shoulders aren't down and back! I'm guessing this is prolly the model and not you, maybe she's never really studied ballet, but her body just seems veeeeeeery relaxed for a ballet pose. Ballet is an artform that takes immense discipline and every musle to make it look right yet appear effortless and I'm just not getting that from the model! Otherwise it's beautiful though...the comments about Jesus and the fact that she's actually standing on a pebble and that Jesus didn't need a pebble made me crack up! Some ppl are so silly =P

Yes I know, that whas just the model yeah. My sister is a ballerina for 12 years now and she told me the exact same thing. I just laughed at the Jezus comment, silly people and their imagination is even bigger than mine!

hehehe yea it was like she imagined your whole point was that Jesus needed a pebble! =P It's like uhhhhhhh......no? It's a girl in a ballet outfit! Not a guy from the ancient middle east!

Hmm I don't know, I think you're on the right track. Conrats on the DD.
I really think you have a long way to go before you can do this as well as possible though.
The background and the girl seem completely seperate to me, so it doesn't look very believable.

This could be because the lighting on the girl and the backgrounds lighting are completely different, or maybe you should overlay a colour filter to make everything blend in unison.
As it stands now, it looks like the girls been cut out and stuck on, which is regretfull since the idea and symbology are beautiful.

I can't wait to see you progress further in this area, I hope my ideas are usefull to you. Good luck!
