I like what i see, check the shadow and perspective on that incense burner and tone the brightness of the smoke down a little. I think you can do it, even if it is hot man.

I like the idea. Good use of source. Needs work on the shadows, particularly the ashtray (incense holder) and the sun. The sun's drop shadow doesn't fit as it creates light "sources" from many directions. Also maybe the ashtray can be darkened a bit at the bottom so it doesn't look like it's floating. Same w/ the lemon. If you are going to work with a light source, make one side lighter and one side darker of all the objects in the Chop. In this Photoshop, since the objects are already "light", you will probably only have to darker certain areas. Make the shadows (and shading) more of a "gradient" as the ones you have used on the ashtray and plate are pretty solid black.

From the darkness of shadow that we see as hair to the brilliant outline of a female face to the leaves strategically placed and the inclusion of two sparrows to take us full circle to confuse us to show us this is not Elena but branches with birds...and so our minds go cyclically with this illusion. Simply brilliant!

The yellow boat isn't convincing, and with that strong light source both boats would have long shadows. Your idea is good.

As I can see what Zizounai is saying, but I'll tell ya, the statue head merged with the Island is SUPER COOL!!!! (I didn't notice the fish at all LOL)

Very good, but I think your shoals of fish are too repetitive, you should search for other different ones

I really like what you're doing here
Maybe some minor adjustments on the roof and floor can be done (end of the floor texture has a hard edge on the beach. The roof has the opposite problem, this could use a more hard edge IMHO).

A NEW BREED OF ZEBRA

Denlig says:

With the drop shadow you added it looks like your zebra is against a wall, why did not you keep the original shadow by shortening it? there is also a small transition problem between the animal's back and mane.
