You raise me up, but I refuse to turn back and look at you

My eye goes immediatley to the center figure...which is quite centered

The imagery is effective

I think the horizon line might be straightened (or it is the photo)

Colors are subtle...perhaps a bit more darks or lights? It seems middle range

agree with pampe
all except for the horrizon line
straightneing it may detract
there are enough ideas of straight lines here

worth playing with

since the figure is so centered
I think that color emphasis is needed to draw away from him/her
he/she will be noticed...and maybe more lost in the image
would help convey the lost feelings I think you mean to portray for him/her

always imho...g

when I am down, and oh my soul's so weary when troubles come and my heart burdened be. Then I am still and wait here in the silence until you come and sit a while with me.

you raise up so I can stand on mountains, you raise me up to walk on stormy seas, I am stong when I am on your shoulders, you raise me up to more than I can be.

Amen.

I love the palette - it's so warm and full of hope despite the desolation and hardness of the surroundings. But I agree that perhaps the emphasis of it should draw away from the figure somewhat.

Good message.

You already received good advice.
I just want to say that your message is beautiful and this has a lot of potential.
I would also like to see the person less centered.
