The road texture looks too uniform and has no perspective. I found an easy way to make road texture is to start with the gray color then add noise for texture then use gaussian blur to give some blending to the texture. I agree about the perspective problem. One thing that would help is to angle the ends of the white line, as it is now the lines appear to be viewed from directly overhead. Concept is great worth spending a little tweak time IMHO.

A good idea author. The perspective between the road and bike are way off though. From the angle we see the road at, we should be looking down directly on top of the bike, and not a side view as you have showing. I would skew the road, place it on the lower half of the image and then add some scenery in the background. I think by doing this it would improve the image imho. Good luck

author.. you really should up load a Step By Step.. as I realize that this is a pretty simple chop, this makes the SBS even more valuable to people who are impressed by your work and would like to do something similar themselves.. (this would make and Awesome tutorial).. very good job on this.. (the best way to learn is from others who already know what to do..hehehe.. good luck and good job

i love it. it is a bit hard to tell that it is a snail, however with the lighting that has it. the snail does go in that way, and the angle and perspective in my opinion make the shadow hard to see which to me is realistic

This is a cute concept, when you changed the colors of the cheetah, something weird happened so it looks like it's not native to the photo though. If I hadn't look I would have thought it was pasted onto a new background. It's a little to saturated in color on the bottom of the main part of the body.

This is much better than it was when I saw it yesterday. Did you clone out some of the middle upper? I'm seeing some repeated patterns, you may want to break those up a bit.

The light is silly, and your image is distorted...the orange skin could use some thickness.

if u play more with the reflection of the of cheetah in water and brighten up a little more the opposite side of the shadow wil give it a effect.the source image is having the light coming from behind so brighten up the parts of cheetah having shadow to match with the rest.

hehehehe.. good thinking author..very clever.. I think there might be some remenant shadow on the tail of the cheetah.. but the high res doesn't have that much detail... the composition and message is very well put together.. good luck

well first off to help you improve your photoshop, is that your shadows are going in the WRONG direction, and they arent blue like the real shadow on the top left...

just sample the original shadow color and it will look great! also, change the direction the shadows are being cast because it would be pretty much impossible for the guy in the orange shirt to have his shadow in another direction

The idea is good, especially this dancing shadow. But have a look at the original shadows. To match them to the existing one, maybe you could make them more blueish and maybe also a little bit more leant to the left side, so they look more natural in comparison to the persons shadow with the orange shirt. Beside that... I don't get the duck shadow at all, cause there is nothing, that could cast a shadow. Maybe you could add a dog there, so it'll look like someone is feeding the dog, but the dog casts a duck shadow or something like that. Good luck
