Thank you for the nice feedback. Hmmm I don’t think I could ever call myself a digital artist. I certainly use Lightroom and Photoshop to colour correct and retouch skin etc but more than that I unfortunately can’t do. I’d love to know how to composite and really play with colour.

Hello there Ruth,

                          Very pleased when I arrived on your port.

One thing that immediately stands out and that I like personally, is that you have your own style. 

It's not generic and if I had known you before, I may see one of these images and think, yep that's one of Ruths.

It's obviously decorative and pretty and something that appeals to your own sensibility.

The images are well designed and created. I like the port very much.

All I would add is they are all a definite and particular style, so if you wanted to do something else or diversify, it might be an idea to add a couple of images that show something outside this type. Even something else that is close to what these are already doing, like for example, Headshots or Beauty

If you are happy to stay and work solely in this style and genre, then there is no need to add anything. Think it works very well as it is.

Thanks for the invite to look at and discuus your port. It was a pleasure.

Thank you for the kind feedback. Yes you're absolutely right that I probably should try something a bit different. I just do love the feminine, pretty style and almost always lean towards that. The image below was unusal for me (more down the glamour route which I never really do) so occasionally I do try something a bit different!
