~ Pretty coloring, but it could have used a touch more contrast so that Kahlan stood out from the background a bit more.

++ Lovely work on the sky; love the clear, bright coloring as well.
++ no reasons given
+ Though I honestly find the Richard and Kahlan portion of the icon to be rather grainy, the sky is gorgeous.
+ Nice idea changing the sky background and apply a sky-texture... it gives more action to the image.

~ The duplicate at the bottom of the icon is rather distracting especially when the focus of the icon is clearly higher up (Kahlan's looking up and you've positioned the text high on the icon). So all the extra motion at the bottom of the icon muddies the focus. If you were looking for something to spice up your icon, try a texture (as opposed to simply white brushing) to create your negative space effect or add a little punch to your coloring by adding more tones to it!

~ Very nice choice of cap. However, all the light in the icon coupled with an indistinct Cara means that there's no clear focus in the icon. Where are we supposed to look? In this case, it might have been better to simplify your composition a little. Choosing something solid for the top (as opposed to more bright light) and/or toning down the brightness of the top so that it didn't conflict with the bottom right corner would have helped significantly. And a little more contrast plus some sharpening on Cara would have helped her stand out from the rest of the icon.

+++ GORGEOUS. Love the clarity of the cap, and I love the weird texture. It all works together so well. Very, very well made.
+++ no reasons given
++ I love the warm colors used here; they really complement the chosen cap.
