Author, you may have to rethink the Globe Projection.. I think it falls under the realm of Illustration. (Not a hard thing to replace) If you repeat the disk and stack it a bit it will give it more density, becoming more disk like instead of a sheet of paper. IMHO. Good luck and cool idea.
Double check with a MOD to find out if it's okay to use the Polar Projection as a source, but I think it's not allowed.

When overlaying an image with textures be careful not to destroy the resolution. (Unless that was your intent). In photoshop, you can see how the tail of the dragon is INSIDE the Castle, but the distance is funked up and gives the feeling the Dragon is flying INFRONT of the castle not landing on top of it. (In my eyes anyway). If that was your intent you may want to burn the edges of the castle where the dragon landed to give it more of grounded/holding the tower feel. Again, this could be caused by the texture overpowering the image and making the detail blur. Only a suggestion as always IMHO.
The Castle source is incredibly blurred in the original source and that adds to the difficulty of matching up the landing effect. Trying to match up the resolution of the castle with the incredible detail of the reptiles cause a lot of the blending issues.
Don't get me wrong, it's a great design, I'm just looking at it as how it could be improved for the overall effect and crank it up a notch.
The calm color scheme is well thought out, but be careful as that can make it a bit bland with no punch. Not a bad thing, but in photoshop there is always room for a little more WOW. GOOD LUCK.

great chop (burn the leg against the body of the bear might make it blend a bit more.. just a shade, but I think it would help) IMHO of course

Good concept, but too "busy," visually. Check out some of the other entries to get a better idea of the minimalist concept.

Perhaps just the DNA strand with a break in the middle, rather than the somewhat complicated composition you now have...

I like this very much, excellent minimalistic approach in both image and copy! Just one correction, the line should read " This Summer", summer is spelled with two "m's". You should also move the line so it doesn't get covered by the pxleyes logo.

Naaah, fr33rider2, it's blurry, but NOT in a motion blur type of way. It's blurry as in not as focused as the rest of the surrounding image...
Consistent focus is part of the criteria of a successful chop, not just the concept.

I think you're just trying to hard MossyB. It's blurry because it's running... I think the only problem is the lighting on the rhino. otherwise, it looks sick!

MossyB says:

The rhino image is too blurry, and the edges are too sharp. It looks very cut and paste. You also need a shadow that corresponds to the bullfighter.
