Greetings from the Critique Club!

Very imaginative and creative image, the pins do a wonderful job of doubling for balloons. The colours are nice and poppy and the woody's pose adds fun and whimsy to the shot. Now for the nitpicky part...lighting is a bit flat with little contrast to add dimension esp to the woody. The surface on which the woody and pins are placed is neutral enough to not compete, but the hot spots of white glare at the top of the surface does fight the balloon/pins for the viewer's eye, esp as the black bg helps to point out the glare. Composition is OK but could be a little more dynamic; I find the white bg constrains the action too much. I want to see a sense of freedom, but feel restrained instead.

Overall a very good idea, but the execution needs a little more thought and work. Hope this critique has been of help, feel free to PM me with any questions and please keep shooting and entering.
