Yo to all.
This is not my normal style of work so I was looking for some crit, please...The piece in question is a 10x15 print, to be sold to a friend. The subject matter is a post processed high speed photography image.

I generally hate blatant Photoshop filter applications, but, the pop art vibe I was going for here seems to work and the general feel of the image is more provocative with it. Do you think? Bare in mind this is not high art and it intends to sit just above the usual stock/generic/stretched canvas lounge hangings that you can buy on the high street.
i would like it more if the bottle of bud were removed. the background is better then the foreground.
- < reminds me of that old B-Movie ant film (the little ants that eat everything)....what was it...!!!??sneakybadger
- i think that was a mcgyver episode- the one where he goes to south america...

Evokes a pretty flatline response from me. Both emotionally and formally. It would have been better if I outright hated it.
too much noise - looks too much like a product of your tools rather than a product of conscious effort. smooth that shit out some.
The label has come out very nicely. I would keep the label as it but build up a layered vector using the colours currently there for the rest of the bottle and the background. Clean it up a bit.

Okay, good words so far. To be honest, it's not that I'm creating something I like, it's more that I want to cater to what my friend wants from the image...
So we started with this...
We started playing with it in photoshop, and I interted it out of curiosity, and it blew his mind, the dudes never even heard of photoshop before.
He liked the concept of hurting global brands/established corperations and also, in the invert, that the water was black, and impure? and I think that it was just generally messing around with his perceptions. As an inverted image is clearly just an inverted image, and some of themes he was extracting are pop art related, I thought I'd try and post process it to pull out that sort of feel.
...if he likes it- and is paying for it.... i like the original photo best.
I hear you, but
'...and it blew his mind, the dudes never even heard of photoshop before'
should not be an excuse and instead, you should show him something good and introduce him to better work (not saying your poster is bad)
I'd sell him the invert, it's just I want to pass on something with a bit more complexity.
I spent too much time in the interwebs and this is coming from not a designer but the 1st thing that came to my perverted mind was this picture ->
No offense! it's just the first thing that crossed my mind, you professionals can carry on with the discussion I move away now.
I dunno. To critique the image formally there's a lot lacking there. The original is nice. Captures the shatter decently. Compositionally maybe not the most exciting thing.
The photoshop tragedies all just scream of "filter".
I guess it's hard to critique it further without understanding any context for the image. It really just looks like something you'd find on deviantart.
I like that it's very early 90's
