Wonderful result, and an excellent use of the source! And even though the concept of a mushroom house is a little dated, this entry looks amazing.

From your SBS it looks like you spent a lot of time on the mushroom guy you created, but he's not too visible in the final image, i suggest brightening that up a little to make him pop out some more.

Great job

author says:

Thanks Spaceranger; nishagandhi... (thanks for the fave by the way!! :p)

Ponti55, initially I wanted the mushroom man to be there as something you 'just' see coming into the light, overlooking his house ('coming home')... but... after the jpeg save... he did look a little darker than the psd... so I lightly erased the vignette to boost him up a little... it's only very slight but anymore and ill have to illuminate the foreground more which I'm trying not to do.... however I'm sure you don't want to read the explanation... just to know that I took your advice LOL!!!!...

Good suggestion ponti55, slight change really makes a nice enhancement. Author your explanation is most helpful in understanding your thoughts in creating this fine work.

Very cute, but the mushroom house is too angled on the hill.

Cool little 'shroom house! I like that crooked chimney, very Tim Burton/storybook looking. Very nice work, author. How the man fits in there? Why, I'll bet he eats a little bit of the 'shroom and "gets small"........

Love the whole image ... your Mushroom guy is wonderful and I noticed him and got the whole feeling of coming home. The atmosphere you have created with a few mushrooms and some magical lighting is ... well, magical! Extremely excellent work!
