beautiful picture. nice angle you've chosen.

did you like the book? I had to read it back in school and found it pretty boring...maybe I should give it one more try...

Thanks :) I actually liked the book alot.. Most people didn't, but I did. It reminded me alot of what my grandma is going through, so I guess I could relate to it.

Pretty :D I really like the composition. Although I think some smoother brushstrokes would have been better, but I'm not too good at that :P

It looks wonderful but it could of course be better.
I wish the shadows were deeper. Right now it looks like it is lit by a streetlamp right next to it rather than moon a thousand miles above. White statues sometimes seem to be "glowing" at night, don't see it here.
Mayhaps you should've used the moon as primary light source and added another lightsource somewhere aside.

I give it 8/10

ohmygod. Amazing! I would love to see it cropped.

Thanks! :) It's so hard taking a picture of it, they never turn out right (my camera's shotty :P), and this was the picture that turned out the best, except it was on an odd angle :/ Maybe I'll try again someday, to crop it better :]

I know how that is. I have a hard time taking pics of my paintings too. But oh well, this is still beautiful :)

Great painting with a very serene and peaceful vibe. I would probably try to reshoot it with less glare and crop it tighter, but its lovely nonetheless.

Very nice painting.

The actual photo is a bit distracting though. It'd be better if it were cropped more so that only the painting was showing and not the room it's sitting in. :)

Yeah I should take a better picture of it and crop it better.. It wasn't taken with a very good camera for that matter :[
