Author, in your sbs above the other source you have written "Old stock", is this a photo that you took yourself, or an image that you have from the net some time ago?

You have achieved a dream like quality to your presentation as the child and snout of bear are behind a mist, the ear of the bear and part of his torso appear clear and sharp as if the clouds are moving.

Good one

You might want to try some color adjustments on the overall image, a good plugin for that is the Google Nik collection (it's free). The Color Efex Pro filter is great for that purpose.
Using that will bring your sources better together and it helps you to set a mood in your image.

I appreciate it. The two skies are blended well. Good depth of field on the birds. Possibly a bit too much vignette. It's a nice shop. I rated it high.

Does the plane land in there and smash the guy? Does the guy get out of the way and live? Or does the plane fly over the building and all is well? So much drama in one Photoshop.

Lots of nit pic work

You can

The problem is resolution. I always work at 200 pxls per inch (sometimes larger). Canvas size 10 X 12 inches minimum size, (most always larger).

I rescale the JPEG usually never less than 100 pxls per inch and reduce the size (dimensions) until I get as close to the maximum 5MB size allowed for submissions. Always make the final size as close to the 5MB max as possible.

In Photoshop edges get softer when they are enlarged so working larger, even with type sizes, will help keep sharp edges sharper in the final JPEG submitted. Vector images as in Illustrator remain sharp at any size but Photoshop uses pixels and the more pixels the sharper the image.

What was the size and resolution (pixels per inch) of the PSD?
What was the final size of the image submitted (MB)?

Very nice job. It really tells a (very nice) story. I think one of the things I like most is the aging of the tree as well, to parallel the couple. I really like it leafless in the final frame.
