A matched set of 2 each what author? The guidelines state : maximum of one (1) child... appears to be 3 children to me???

Edit: I see, one is the mother?....still 1 too many kids according to guidelines, sorry

Nice concept, IMHO colors are too bright, don't look very real, GL!

Try to make details on the boats different, not just the numbers on the sails.

you can colorise the boats' body for adding more variety... or some more variations...

It's very blurry looking. Try using a harder edged brush for cleaner lines.

Good idea, but the B/W smoke has 3 hard edges, and the man & skull are distorted. (When scaling images, hold the shift key to avoid distortion). GL author.

Also it would help blurring the edges of your objects. Easiest way is ctrl click on layer icon to select its contour, then go to Select modify contract by a few pixels, invert selection and apply gaussian blur.
The further an object is the more desaturated will appear, use this to create perspective.

Drop shadow effect is not a good idea for this photo since it makes them look like they are on top of an image, not in it.

Try to use Channels to cut out the fire:
Select the picture layer of the fire, and click channels ( if it's not active near the layer tab , go to Window -channels)
Choose the channel with most contrast and use select color range to select the fire. Use the fuziness bar to adjust the selection. after you click ok and have the selection press Ctrl J to make a new layer out of the selection. Try it multiple times until you like what you get.

Selectiv via channel gives you a more transparent look which blends better in background.

Interesting explanation, author. I'm glad to have it, since my initial answer to your description ("The image tells it all" was "Ummm... no, it doesn't." Maybe it's because I do my own nails. Good luck. MossyB makes a good point about the masking. Expanding your selection by 1 or 2 more pixels would remedy that next time.

**CORRECTION: CONTRACTING your selection (make the selection smaller than the outside edge of the object you want to keep) by 1 or 2 pixels. Sorry! Another way to smooth the edge is to feather it by 0.5 pixels before the chop.

Wow, lots to look at! Only suggestion would be shading where the arms and legs meets the blob. Good luck!

MossyB says:

There's a slight outline where you've cut the feet from the background. The rainbow background you've added also looks very flat, with no shading or depth to match the feet so obviously pasted on top. Perhaps a very slight bit of shadow to correspond with the feet will help.
