Looks like the orange truck is out of scale, otherwise everything else is great!
Very interesting image just a few things to clean up, just above the truck there is a corner of the barrel image, just to the right of the blue can there is a odd circle
Would be interesting to see 'high res'.
very nice feel
Thanks madamemonty for catching those. You have a goood eye. Also I put in the high resolution shot. Thanks also CMYK46 but don't think I am good enough to change the truck now.
another thing you could maybe fix is the orange colorcast on the water you don't have to remove it just desaturate it a litle it will make it fit with the whole stormy weather feel
You've still missed one corner of the barrel image, it's just above the tree line
floods stink....yeah yeah...floods stink -- your picture doesn't though
I tried what you said slayyou hope I got close thanks. I got it agin madamemonty. This will make me check more closely the next time thanks.
I like it, but some of the objects' colours don't match with the rest of the image, but i know it's too late to change. Good luck!
Congrats for your first place, Norman!
Congrats, really nice job
Congratulations for 1st
congratulations on your win

Yet another collage of DA images....(yawn).
C'mon CMYK, that's not really fair. I think the image is great, there are a couple of parts around the model that makes it look like she's casting a shadow on the sky, but it's a great find. It's a very creative use of a difficult source to work with, so good job on that. G'luck!
It's ok ponti, cmyk46 doesn't really like my style... sorry i can't draw like you o.o so i stick with manipulations... Anyway i think the shadow you're refering to are hairs...
LOL...where would we be without the great folks at DA?
We would get stocks from other sites like sxc?
Sorry, I have nothing against this author. I'm just sick and tired of DA images that have been pre-posed and costumed being used for their prefab WOW factor.
images from DA don't look as sterile as the images on SXC. Images from DeviantArt are pre-posed, but in most cases it's the only place to find what you're looking for.
I think the picture is quite lovely... good luck author... I love how you mapped out the idea and made it come together quite well
I have to admit, DA has made me lazy. I try to use as many of my own images as possible in manipulations (because I can't draw, either), but DA is so tempting with all of its available photos to use. I think that you've done a beautiful job, Author. But I think that you should mask out the "hair/halo" behind her head.
Very lovely idea and beautifully done. Two minor things draw my attention away from the main subject of this work. The power line thru the bush should not be there and if the leaves were toned down a little bit our attention would be drawn to the main subject. I do like this a lot!
Thanks for the help laulei. Removed the light and decreased the saturation of the leaves.
i hear you, downoffthedragon. one thing you can fix: those leaves' shadows look almost like blurry stains on the image.. almost like the healing brush gone wrong if you know what i mean.. pay a bit more attention to them (especially on the bottom left part of the image)
You have masterfully put the sources together, I especially like the way the leaves look to be floating and the transperancy of the lace in the umbrella...nice work
I would have to agree with laulei - that powerline is distracting, use the eraser and chop it up a little, make it look like leaves?? Also your buildings in the background are sharper than your tree? Maybe blur them some more?
What power line? The one down? I remvoe a strong pwoer light at the top of the fence (left). I'll remove the down one too. Might remove the leaves shadows or make them less visible, thanks.
The powerline runs through the tree horizontally.
honestly CMYK46 there is more to photomanipulation than just geting images from deviantart a lot of work goes into it and i find it insulting to all photomanipulators that you would call his work "prefab" especialy since not everyone has a good camera that is capable of taking high quality images to use!
it always stinks when ya get blown away reminds me of Mary Poppins.
Sources for the background and sky etc? The line is running through the tree horizontally.
The background and sky are from he source pciture too o.o
Sorry author: thought you merged in another part of sky in there for depth.. My bad.
No problem, i've enlarged the sky, clone etc came up nicely.
Gotta agree with CMYK....although the idea is good and its fairly well put together, i hate seeing DA stock constantly used by artists that couldnt be bothered searching for the right source pics on Flcker, sxc etc.
@freejay and CMYK... what does it matter where the stock came from. I can find pre posed stock on plenty of stock sites. Your not here to judge where we get the images from but how we put it all together... this is an art contest not a stock site contest. Some of us are not so naturally blessed to draw or take photos. Some of us have no where to go to take photos, our worlds are very different. Author, I think its a nice image, and have to agree the first thing I thought of was Mary Poppins as well lol
Congrats for your second place, Akassa!
Congratulations for 2nd
congratulations on ur win
Roof being lifted, tree uprooted, tractors being lifted away....
All source- used VanDerLee snowflakes plugin and Eye Candy 3.1 motion trail plugin. Alot of cutting, cloning, rotating.
Your 'high res' isn't very high res.
Nice. You should change the direction of the rain. Good luck
sorry thomasms, that was cropped from the original in medium resolution. Palaekman, you are right! I accidentally put an upward motion on it and now it looks like it is going down the opposite way. lol I'll have to fix that.
could happen...nice one
i realy like this it realy does look windy over there!
Great job, i love the image, and i love the realism of it.
wow it looks like really paint .. (:...very nice work
Congrats for your third place!
awe thanks Lelaina
Congratulations for 3rd
awe thank you so much you all!
I have used only the source image to create this.
WOWWWWW !! brillant !! salute !!
I like it! I'd like to see ome numbers on the keys, but good otherwise
Screen doesn't look right, but everything else is good...
this must have taken a while to come up with good job!!
I'm really terrible at those pictures with the dots that have a hidden picture. I honestly had no idea what this was until I read the comments. I thought it was an air filter for a car or something--yeah so I was born blonde! LOL Once I realized what it was though, I thought...COOL
Very creative!! Good luck!
The wind is now accompanied by rain and lightning.
Stock storm image from sxc.hu. Thanks to cdw0107.
Thanks a LOT author.. Now I wanna Move LOL.. (You really got the sky right.. it's exactly how it looks when we're all running for cover down here)
The wind seems to be blowing the tree one way and the rain the other way. Flipping the rain layer is an easy fix.
great observation thomasms.. but during a hurricane.. the wind goes in every direction every split second.. but EXCELLENT eye..(Between you and me... HURRICANES SUCK).. hehehe.. great eye!!!
Thanks for the catch on the wind direction -- completely missed that.
Very nice use of source.. (Haha GolemAura xD)
that lightning realy looks fabulous good job author!!
