Please let me know what you think of this composition.
Compositionally, it has one big problem: the glass and the churchkey are just so ever slightly "kissing". Edges of things should either overlap or have space between them.
Additionally, the perspective of the churchkey is off. It's a small enough object that the end of the wooden portion and the hilights on the metal should be just about parallel.
You did a good job with the colors of the glass, and the shape. There's a little distortion of that bottom ellipse, but it can be chalked up to distortion from seeing it through the glass. The lighting on the church-key is nice and accurate. And the wooden palette looks loke a nice, scratched wood. Overall, however, the palette of colors is kind of umpleasantly saturated. As a rule of thumb, the more saturated a color, the less real-estate it should cover, in order to give the eyes a place to rest.
Overall, I bet you learned quite a lot from making this.
I think you are awesome, and I wish you the best in your endeavors, but I am tired of repeating myself, I am very busy with my new baby, and I am no longer a regular participant here, so please do not contact me to ask for advice on your career or education. All of the advice that I have to offer can already be found in the following links. Thank you.
