I like the lens flare effect, it's pretty well hidden in the texture as it subtly leads the eye to the more important, shiny bits! The detail on the gold pile is nice as well, with the different shades of yellow that lets you discern the coins from one another very efficiently.

However I find that the rainbow is a bit wobbly, not in the fun slide way, abruptly ending near the pile instead of fading out; not sure if you intended to have it be a solid thing or not though. The symbol on the pot could also have been more symmetric, which would have given the impression it's on a round surface - seems like it is bulging out to me otherwise.

Overall though, it's a pretty comfortable picture to stare at! I'm assuming the texture was used to make it seem like it just stopped raining too, rainbow and whatnot, which is pretty soothing.

Hey thanks for a very nice detailed review this was just something I played with the rainbow was a tad bit wably thank you for the review.


Nice work and always very dreamy! However, I think that the dark green spots on the grass make it look like the pot is standing on a line and the colors of the sky should be more vibrant and contrasted !! Overall really great piece, gives off a happy vibe!! :D

Thank you for the review


I remember when you uploaded this, I was at a motel.... anyway, you have good textures and the light really helps the pot of gold come off as a happy place to go. I like this. My fav part is the small coins on under the pot, it made for good detail.

Iconic image, so many meanings... Nice! ^_^
