Thanks. So what do you think of the edit. Do I ditch the clouds/sky and go back to a plain black background...or is this better.
A beautiful entry and great edit too...
i love it soooooo much more now... its richer in colors-its perfect.,,nice...
I agree BG makes it much more richer, though it does bring out some masking probs on my screen, it was easier for me to show you here.
Thank you for the help Kellie. Image edited again. Couldn't see that on my monitor till you pointed it out.
Gorgeous. (Of course, I'm partial to lions.)

I'm not sure I agree with others on the sky...I liked it better before. I think the sky detracts from the other glorious work. Not that you are going for realism but, I don't think you see many skies like that in Africa. Yep, definitely liked it better before.
I liked it better before too Dream, but maybe if the whole background was sky or the bbottom was Earth. But either way, even though there is 6 hours left to vote, I am going to go ahead and congratulate you on the gold.
...and amazing that you did all of this with those sources.
Besides being an incredible image, what really astonishes me is your creativity. I mean how someone could even think of something like this to me is just AMAZING... Anyhow an advanced Congratulation on the gold trophy is in order... Great Job…
.... Look at all these comments... Thank you so much everyone. It's a record amount of comments for one of my entries. There's a bit of a story behind this image. I first drew it on a huge piece of newsprint paper back in 1989 using colored pencils. Not realizing when I started how cool it was going to turn out I was sorry I drew it on such yucky paper and swore one day to re-do it. Then last week I got this brilliant idea to re-do it using my photoshop skills and photos. It was a lot of work and a masking nightmare (), but it far exceeded my expectations and I'm very happy that you all like it too.
Congratulations, Deb - this is one of the most amazing entries I've seen.
Congrats Deb, very nice Tony the tiger would be jealous and Tigger too, woo hoo hoo hoo.
