"Sometimes you meet a love that not a thousand armies can break apart." - or something like that.. It was a quote from "Dinner for Schmucks- 2010",it was really funny in the context and it also inspired me in creating this.
It represents people or forces that by trying to break apart a couple they only manage to tie them stronger, together.
There is multiple-light source, just like in the original and I tried to create it as realistic as I could, calculating bounce light reflections and blurry shadows, but that doesn't mean it's perfect.
I think you should CHECK Hi-Res since it's really cool. There might be some minor masking problems but who hasn't? (except Waz!) (5 years and 1652 days ago)

Ooh this is a great concept and really well done too, author. Softer edges for everything would help and maybe create a bit more depth by softening the focus of the army hats and pins furthest away and closest in the foreground.

author says:

Thanks, I'll try that, The sharp edges are an effect made by the high pass filter, I'll lower it's oppacity, and work on your suggestions.
...and done!

Thank you, but I don't think I deserve 100, I really wish I did.
You should vote between 45-70, otherwise your votepower might drop considerably or the vote gets removed.
If you vote lower than 20 mods think it's a hate-vote. They might think it's a friend-vote if it's over 80 on just one entry.
I'll PM you the details anyways, welcome to pxleyes .

An original entry and well executed and put together.

I saw a trailer for that movie but I'e not watched it yet. I just hope it's not one of the movies "Steve Carrel" doesn't suck in. GL!

author says:

The trailer didn't impress me either, but there was a weekend night I've spent with some friends, we had nothing better to do so we watched it- comedies are best enjoyed with friends, cause laughs are contagious = more fun.
Thanks for appreciating and favoring my entry.
