        • truely a summer look!

        • Wow! Seamless blending. New additions are perfect!
        • I know!! I was very proud of this one..Thanks!!
  • Morning Mist by the Sea

    Morning Mist by the Sea
        • the reflection and color balancing is done well. (on my own opinion).
        • Very imaginative, but the tree & sandbags seem too faded. They should have just as much if not more deatail than the boats & houses, as they are closer.
  • Women Feeding Fish Near the Sea

    Women Feeding Fish Near the Sea
        • Seems to be in 16:9 ; 4:3 might be better.
        • The aspect ratio looks better now. The masking on the standing woman could be closer or 'softer' to match the painting.
  • Man Painting a Beach

    Man Painting a Beach
        • like this. very good idea on the source given.
        • Great idea & well executed. Totally believable! Nice job!
  • Huge Octopus at the Beach

    Huge Octopus at the Beach
        • looks good. Maybe a few splashes of water around the octopus would make it look more real.
  • Tall Ships at the Beach

    Tall Ships at the Beach
  • Wave Rock Formation by a Palm Tree

    Wave Rock Formation by a Palm Tree
        • Very interesting concept...but, the palm frond should be on this side of the rock wave.
  • Shipwreck at the Beach

    Shipwreck at the Beach
  • Water Slides with Dolphins

    Water Slides with Dolphins
        • Perspective is a bit off. The dolphin compared to the diver, is much too big.
  • Girl Looking at the Beach Through a Window

    Girl Looking at the Beach Through a Window
        • This would have looked so mush better without applying of filters.
  • Riding Bikes on a Street Next to a Beach

    Riding Bikes on a Street Next to a Beach
        • the shadows you added are - compared to the bikers' shadows - too bright and blurry. also their strong shadows indicate a very sunny day what doesn't match the cloudy sky.
          wonderful entry though. i love the colors.
        • I removed the shade, was valid for the tip
        • The edge of the sandbag wall is too straight. It should be more contoured to the different shapes of the sandbags.
  • Man and his Rowboat on a Beach

    Man and his Rowboat on a Beach
        • His bags are packed for a 3-hour tour...a 3-hour tour.
  • Painters at the Seaside

    Painters at the Seaside
  • Couple Relaxing in a Hamock at the beach

    Couple Relaxing in a Hamock at the beach
        • Very good idea! But, the trees are further back in the respective view, which makes the people & the hammock look huge!
  • Mermaids at the Beach

    Mermaids at the Beach
        • Nifty, but the light on the mermaid on the right is coming from the wrong direction.
  • Man Taking Photos Through a Fence at the Beach

    Man Taking Photos Through a Fence at the Beach
        • Very good concept but, the hands & the camera are too blurry. They should have sharper detail because they are close up.
  • Godzilla at the Beach with a Baseball Player

    Godzilla at the Beach with a Baseball Player
        • The masking around your elements needs some work. There are rough edges, and bits of their old backgrounds still there.
        • Nothing says summer like Godzilla, snakes, jets and baseball. Janna is right. Masking is rough at best.
