Hi Lorraine,
I'm sorry but this piece falls short for me for a few reasons. The central figure is very ambiguous and poorly defined. Ambiguity is not necessarily a bad thing, but when paired with the two signs which are absolutely in focus and crisp, the figure becomes just confusion. The elements don't seem to go together. The signs stand out as a focal point and it should be the other way around. Are we seeing these signs through water? It doesn't look like it. Compare the contrast of the signs to the figure.

The use of texture fills and filters is very apparent. These are fine tools but they should be the beginning not the end. Take the water for example, this could be much more interesting.
