Figure needs a reflection, shadows are wrong. Look at the shadow under the chin for original light source.

author says:

There are already reflections in the water. Can't you see them? It has the statue reflection and the starfish reflection and also the cloud reflection in the water. As for the shadows, they are following the same angle as the shadow on the knee and chin. See that knee shadow? It is heading slightly to the left. The chin shadow seems to be going straight down so I figured I needed to use both source shadows to make my own shadows. I made the ivy leaf and starfish shadows aim down and slightly left. The dark area you see above the leaves on the knee are cracks in the statue. Those areas are holes. The ivy is growing through those cracks.
Now if you still think the shadows are wrong, which way do you think they ought to go if not slightly down and to the left?

The light source is almost overhead. I'd make the shadows lower and more to the right. I'd also make the reflection more visible.

author says:

I moved the shadows 6 pixels more to the right and 3 pixels further down and made the reflection more visible for you.

Not sure what the straight lines are all about...

author says:

Where did you come from????? I didn't publish this yet!!! Still working on it!

CMYK46 says:

Well, they're gone now. It was published when I commented, obviously. Something like step 6.

Very nice effect, but the shadows on the vines are too dark in comparison to the rest of the image. They are almost black compared to the shadows of the bricks they are attached to. If you lighten them just a bit, they will look a bit more realistic.

CMYK46 says:

Very good idea for use of the source. In hi-res there are a few obvious straight crop lines, otherwise well done!

author says:

Will get out the toolkit and see what happens. Thanks guys.
Edit: Cleaned up those crops. Wow that was sloppy for me. Also adjusted the vine shadow with bevel settings and shadow layer too.

in the place of gradient effect u have to put sm another background..... so maybe it look more real then now..

author says:

Taking your suggestion. I added a different back to replace the gradient.
Thank you.

Amazing work, and love the Greek and Roman Gods and Goddess. The shading is fantastic, and your use of scrolling is great. I can see myself entering a garden to look at this temple. Looking forward to seeing more of your work.

Something simple, sweet, and actually easy and pleasurable to view... nice work author!

why yr image is removed from competition many times....???

author says:

I am new to this website and did not understand the depth of the rules. I am also new to entering contests. I'm a beginner using Photoshop, completely self taught. Entering contest is something I had never tried before.

Yes the image was removed multiple times by the mods. I had to supply proof of purchase for other images used, an SBS guide and there was an issue with a brush and crediting an author.

I'm still a bit confused over all of it as I see many entries that do not have the requirements I needed to provide. But, I will understand in time with the wonderful help of the Mods in the forum.

The most important point is I am having a wonderful time and very much enjoying this website.

Thank you for asking.

Took forever! Got half way through and accidently closed out everything I had worked on from a long ago save. I think it looked better the first round but there's nothing I can do about it now. I still love the way it turned out.
I created the wings for the bottom reaching fairy in Apophysis. When doing the SBS it would not let me load past 7. I'll try again later.
