The only images I used that was not my own are the seashells which are credited to Emma-Frost-Stock and the Starfish provided by Pxleyes.
The other six images were mine. The end of her tail was a fractal I created in Apophysis.

*Update: I attempted to add adjustments offered by jawshoewah and greymval and Erathion.
I added several layers of colors to fix the overall feel of the image. Very curious to get more opinions.

Nice chop! And kudos to using your own stock photos! My only nitpick would be maybe the edges around the starfish you turned into a bra. They just seem a little hard. Other than that, well done!

Make a blue overlay over the model, so it blends better. ( create new layer of solid color - blue- right click on it create clipping mask so it only affects the model, Mode: Overlay Opacity-20%- more or less) You could make 2 clipping layers one blue on green so that you have a turquaz overlaying your model.
Your background also has some noise that should be present on the model, so you could either lower her opacity -95-98% or add a noise over.
There's also a masking problem on her hip, use some clone stamp to cover over her human skin :P

Thank you very much for the suggestions I'll start working on them right away.

Water is always hard to work with...This image have a great concept author and u could turn it in fabulous entry...I would like to give u few advices because i had similar problems when i created my underwater entry's...For better blending,solid color layers with different blend modes are always good thing to do. Val gave u advice to use blue overlay layer,and that is good thing to do. I would gave u advice to use dark blue overlay layer,with opacity set between 20-40%. Also in this case u have to make whole scene a bit slighter and for that dark brown layer with color blend mode and goldish layer also in color mode will done the work. Play with opacity of course. And now magic stars,add on top of these layers,dark green soft light layer,play with opacity and u will get crazy blue-green water color,and goldish layer will gave some nice mood.And finally u could add on top of these,blue/gray layer,blend mode set to color,with a low opacity max10%. And thats it,great underwater scene. And u could create some bubbles behind the purple thing to achieve better depth...Sorry for this novel author...

I see that no-one comments so i would have to ask if do you need any feedback on how to improve, or you already know but can't really since you've lost the psd or smth?
Anyways, here's my opinion:
1. Background is blurry, a more clear source would do better.
2. Her right hand could use some change of hue to look more blended in the water.
3. Those are soap bubbles, water bubbles look more like this : http://www.elrst.com/wp-content/uploads/2008/08/water-bubbles.jpg
I know someone who just liquefied the soap B.-s and they looked good.

GREAT!!!

great choice of images -- may be a more defined line between the girl and fish would improve this

avatar MossyB
MossyB says:

The fish half is side profile (the top fin away from the viewer), while the woman half is facing upwards to the viewer...The angle just doesn't work, and the blending is very rough, looking like an uneven blur erase. The woman half's skin will need to start turning the color of the fish half (Gradient) before you erase blend it into the fish, and the fish needs to either be a bit more "belly up," or the woman needs to be facing downwards more.

THANKS NATOR BETTER THIS WAY

Light rays are kinda funky, and I think the one at left should be behind the sub...but that's just a nitpick. Everything else is great!

nice work -- another water layer on top with lowered opacity can be used to make the light appear to be over your sub

author says:

Thanks for the tip Alan2641! I'll play with it and resubmit. Cheers.

author says:

Thanks for the FAV Nishagandi!

author says:

OK Alan2641, I added another water layer on top, and played with the opacity and layer styles, but couldn't get it to look quite right, so I added a few beams with the pen tool, stroked with soft white, and gave them a blue-ish hue. I like it better, so thanks again for the tip!
