Nice, The water ripple under the swan is to distorded. The waves are a lot bigger there. I guess it's displacement map? If you place the swan lower in the image and than apply the displacement map you will get the bigger ripples. Good luck!

nice work -- background is especially good.

author says:

Thanks Ressiv , I have made some adjustment in swan and its reflection and also cropped image from bottom, which was showing distorted waves.

Now you make another masterpiece, congrats! The only thing I complaint is maybe one of the grass layer is in the wrong place, the one near the center of the image, at the same height with the head, it shouldn't be in front of other ones, and now it's levitated. I think you could remove that layer or put it to somewhere else. Good luck!

avatar gamemastertips

Wow...this is beautiful. Excellent work!

author says:

Thanks langstrum for your comment and nice words. Much appreciated.
Unfortunately I have merged all grass layers except painted grass, which is on its on layer. Anyway I have manage to hide the one, which you pointed out.

great work author,details are just amazing...i like grass a lot,contrast between and coloring...work on a water is great too,i like flow that u achieve to create...Only thing that i would change is to create whole image a bit lighter...any how this great work goes to my favorites...well done

Ressiv says:

You could make it even better if you used the ZigZag filter underneath the swan. Select the reflections layer, select with the circular selection tool a big elipse underneath the Swan and apply the filter (in the settings use the away from center option). After that you could straighten out the rippled circle on the back side of the swan. That way it will probably look like the swan is really moving in the water. Good luck!

author says:

Thanks Ressiv, for great tip. I have added ripple with zigzag filter.
Thanks erathion, I have made image a bit lighter.

avatar Ressiv
Ressiv says:

That's already better! Did you filter the water too? It kinda looks like you only did it to the swans reflection. You could do it with the water itself too, that way you get real waves. But very nice image anyhow!

Great execution.... very nice scene!

I love the swan. IMO reeds and grasses seem pretty busy and flow of grasses go in different directions and pull my eye away from the center of interest. But it's still a beautiful composition. GL

avatar dustfinger

Well made, nice composition. I like the subtle colors.
