        • Try making the underside of the pineapple just a little bit darker to give the image some depth.
        • Thanks guys, I tried shadowing the underside I still need to work on that, using CoralDRAW, think I need Photoshop.
        • I used to use CorelDraw, but I find Adobe Photoshop much more user-friendly and encourage your acquiring it ... Good job and I agree about the shadows; light and shadows make the difference!

        • Welcome to FN
          The top of the pineapple is intergrated well into your source image. I would have adjusted the bottom [near the chin line] however to match the skin tone so that it wasn't such a definite finish.

          For future entries, try to use much larger source images so that everyone can get a real good look at all the detail of your hard work.
        • Hi... I liked it...your job is a good job!
        • Killer first and Welcome to FrEAKING NeWS!

        • Fair composition. Some shadows would help.
        • I agree with NewsMaster; light sources and shadows are immensely important. Interesting Composition
        • Yes, I agree that shadows would have made this composition much better. Sorry that I didn't have the time to correct this.
        • But you can still edit your entry any time till the contest ends.
  • Pineapple Stop Sign

    Pineapple Stop Sign
        • A good effort but when you use text within an image, especially when English may not be your first language, it can really do more harm than good to your work. Your chosen theme really didn't allow you much of a choice when it came to text as one would expect to see text on this type of a product. In terms of layout and with the exception of the text around the circular path, the remaining elements are well positioned.
        • Well, you have replaced your previous entry entirely so please disregard my previous comments.

          I'm not sure what you are trying to achieve with the overall composition but the text on the top sign needs distorting to align with the sides of the sign.
        • Clean work, but the pineapple seems levitating.
