Just a little constructive thought on this one.

The lighting falls on the front of the woman, but on the side of the tiger.

The thin chain casts as thick a shadow as does the woman's leg.

The light falls on the front of the woman, but the shadow of her right leg appears as if it was lighted from behind.

The tiger's shadow falls directly below the animal, although the tiger's belly and left-rear leg appear to be very well lighted from the side.

There is a reflection of a car in the window to the right, yet from the perceived angle of view, the tail of that car should be visible about even with the tiger's head. #5380856

Thanks Lisa, you can't please everyone. I will say I enjoy constructive criticism. To address the lighting questions I will say there is no hint of direct lighting here. Some of the darker areas on the sidewalk perceived as shadows are more a result of the texture on the sidewalk. Ambient light will be more even and shadows aren't as well defined or directional.

As far as the car reflection, the image was not doctored to that effect so the car is just out of the right of the frame(your angle of view is a little off here). #5405741
