So, should I say I am a great fan of Harry Potter or should I say I am a great fan of your work! I haven't been to toay's release of the movie, but your deviation made is so much better! Perfect costume, with perfect lighting. I must say, I am fainting in the horrible prospect of saying whether Death Eater or Patronus of yours is the best. Both are stunning to look at. The background image is superb for this, and reminds me of the grand staircase in Hogwarts. The title, Harry Potter and the Half Blood Prince looks slightly diminished, and not sharp, but that must be because high resolution of the stock isn't available, and can be ignored easily given the beautiful model and everything! The "smoke" of the Patronus is very well made and a bit closer to the wand tip, the lens flare looks very well done. The lighting on the model, Amber's face is also beautifully done, and I must thank her for the beautiful pose. I am slightly curious as whom you are trying to depict here! (giggle) If it is Hermione, I assure you will find many hardcore Harry Potter fans saying, Hermione's hair is bushy, and brown, and to an extent the bushy part is quite well done. Since, Hermione in the latest movies don't have that bushy hair as she used to have, that tiny flaw is negligible. It is true that Hermione has a little weakness in conjuring Patronuses, so the idea is accurate of her with smoke version of it. Given the picture as a whole as a high visual clearity and impact on me as well as others are great, it really looks a character shot poster for the movie! It reverberates with a strong resonance of the good character (might be Hermione, I am 100% sure!) you have potrayed.Crisp, stunning, original and love it.

Oh, and the spell is Expecto Patronum and I know you know it! Happy thoughts!

first i must state im not good at critique since i love you your work oh and Harry Potter well more Hermione Granger.

Love the model in the photo nice costume and hair perfect for this setting. Stairs are perfect background for this shot. Not much into added effects but you did a bang up job. I in fact like where you put the title right at the wand perfect spot. The wand is lite up just right not to over power the O. You choose the right font with just enough shading.

If i must say something bad about the photo then here is goes. i would like to see the wand trail a bit like yellow or white and the end of the wand brighter. last thing that looks a weird. the far right side of balcony is lite up, should it be darker. of course only my thoughts

over all an excellent job with this photo, added effects, set, prop, and model

i've been browsing through this gallery, and a lot of your artwork is AMAZING. I think you could design really good book covers and movie posters if you wanted to.
