Love it, except for the bike sign, looks too photoshopped in there. That's due to the sign not looking real, texture wise. Would be fine without it. I also like the 2nd varation better.
To be honest Mark, you confiding yourself in a box, you're always doing the same thing. Start with a stock photo: Add Balloons, planes, and/or signs. Do some sky work, up the gamma (digital vibrance), add a planet or moon, some clouds and it's another release. Don't get me wrong, I love your releases, but I think you can break out of the box and start doing more creative artwork besides the usual touch up/wallpaper work.
The bike sign hasn't been photoshopped @ all - it's in its original state so your observation is a mistaken one.
I haven't included balloons, planes and signs in my work for AGES now (aside from the release the other day) - back in the day yeah. Planets/moons haven't always been in my releases and neither have clouds.
It's my style and a style that I continue to show variation in. You're outline of what goes into my work doesn't hilight ALL of the work I do so it's a shame to see that's what you think goes into the work. A LOT more work goes into that. So you're getting bored of seeing my work and my style. I didn't always do space elements in my work so I already changed that. Balloons used to be common place but I've basically eliminated that.
I do appreciate your criticism though and I shall give it some thought.
