The motion blur is bad. When you isolate your characters to be blurred, you also need to delete the original guys from the background. The way I do this (I say I because I only know how I would do it) is just to use the clone stamp to erase a large amount (usually around 50%) of the character around the edges, so that you don’t have sharp edge bleed-through.
And yeah blah blah don’t dupe on the focused characters yadda yadda I actually like the random light, makes me think maybe there’s like a flashlight on the floor or something :iiam:
Oh yes, also, I have to add to what Ghostwork just said, the criticism I never thought I would get on some of my own shit was the most valuable. That is to say, the unexpected crits are usually the best, or at least the most insightful. Usually.
Also, everyone has their own set of eyes and life experiences, so different people will see different things in the same image. (just to add to my addition)
