The way you achieve such a painterly feel with your photomanipulation is simply astounding. Very impactful piece that's charming and a little eerie at the same time!

VISION:
This is a really beautifully executed concept, but I think the composition doesn't trap the eye like it should for such a beautiful piece. Try experimenting with compositions that are less focused on the center of the piece.

ORIGINALITY:
The level of originality is really in how you approach photomanipulation. I've never seen it done with so painterly a feel and with such warmth in the figures. It's truly beautiful. Girls braiding each other's hair is not unusual to see in paintings, but the way you used the same model three times, each with a distinct personality (the one on the right almost takes on a maternal role, where the one on the left seems critical) elevates this to a higher level. Bravo.

TECHNIQUE:
Your work speaks for itself in this category. The reds- concentrated in the right- through the dress and the faces, carried through in the nails, and taking on a more yellow tone in the left is flawlessly done. It gives the piece an ethereal feel.

IMPACT:
Again, very impactful piece. The only thing that might improve it is a stronger composition.

The otherworldly glow that you've imparted to this work makes it truly stand out. I can't wait to see what you produce in the future.

Critique by illuminantur

Wrong--To my eye I find it refreshing to be not drawn into the depths of the center-the accepted norm---But to be forced to the sides of the image (rather uninteresting(the sides)) by the wedge formed by the prominent  central figure and her hand maids  -- The eye falls to one side and finding nothing of great interest quickly scrolls to the other extreme to find what is not there to see  and back to the center only to slid back to the corner and climb back to the center -- I know you are no longer requesting Critiques --I felt a opposite view of the composition of this fantastic concept should be addressed ---Your chosen title is as ambiguous  as the composition of the image----"The Maid"--the one being  groomed  or one of the groomers (as maids) And than the veil lifted and they are all the same---I frigging love it-----   With deep respect for your talent--Gipgm2
