        • Nice look and overall feel . . . he's not quite looking at her though . . . he appears to be looking straight forward at the viewer . . .
        • Silver Congrats . . . here's looking at you!
        • Congrats! Convincingly atmospheric Great work!
        • Thanks thanks thanks!!
          Qtrmoonshop, yeah, I'm okay with that, because I feel like he's looking at us as if to say "can you believe she's bitching at me again?" LOL.

          COOL, doing a big happy dance!!

  • The Hulk in an Air Raid

    The Hulk in an Air Raid
        • First off, the picture is awesome! But to my US History knowledge....the germans weren't in that battle in the Pacific,Japan was?? (I could be wrong) All in all, Great work on the image!!!!!!
        • Good work. I guess photographs like this don't exist, thus the illustration?
        • cool, i think it would have worked better if you had desaturated hulk though
        • You are right with the Germans. I slipped through my attention. Sorry for the confusion
  • Superman Attacking War Planes

    Superman Attacking War Planes
        • Wow! So much action! So well done! But is it a photograph source or an illustration?
        • The original photo was the war planes in ww2 then i chopped the Hulk & superman into the photo . Thx Diamonds & Icyalleyecan !!!!
        • I also used a shadow tool , blur & a topaz filter to get this result .
  • Batman Bike Patrol in Germany

    Batman Bike Patrol in Germany
        • perfect sources, love how the driver looks at batman
        • Thanks for the comments Mirolocus. The soldiers are wearing bulky helmets and batman is leaning forwards...Also batmans shoulders are proportionate .
          But thanks again
          Thanks rarely.
        • Nice job . . . the size looks ok to me, the lighting and shadows match well . . . it just needs more of the grainy look the original photo has . . .
        • Thanks Rajeshstar and Boulpix. Now a bit more grainier, seems to work better, Thx to Mirolocos and qtrmoonshop for the tip!

        • Nicely done on blending, lighting and shadows . . . though, Superman looks a little too much like art in this photo . . .
  • Ben Grimm with Abe Lincoln

  • Kratos in the Second World War

        • really thought this would have ranked higher! would be interesting to see the sources
  • Catwoman in Vietnam

    Catwoman in Vietnam
        • She is desaturated , I used the black & white filter in CS5 but adjusted it a little so she will stand out more.
        • Great pic! Just desaturated would look good too, Well done!
        • Nice idea with great action . . . she doesn't match the photo though, it looks like she's been intentionally isolated against a separate background image . . .
  • The Joker in Vietnam War

    The Joker in Vietnam War
        • Well,your right he wasn't a SUPERHERO but the joker was a Super character in the movies he played in. One must think out of the box when it comes to Superheroes !!!!
        • The Joker is a super villain or arch enemy, the opposite of a superhero ... there's nothing outside of the box about that ...
        • Well everyone has their opinion Gtrmoonshop . I've seen other contests here where one must see out of the box .
        • I'm sorry, but disregarding the rules is not thinking outside of the box . . . coming up with an idea within the rules, that is totally unexpected and unique and not within the realm of common thinking, that's thinking "outside the box" . . .
        • Check the latest forum out , i'm not the only one who thinks that Supervillains can be in this contest . I'm an extremist when it comes to photoshopping , i have no bounds & always take my work to the edge . Its the old Hippie in me !!!!

  • Nick is Furious

    Nick is Furious
        • Nice job blending and matching the lighting and shadows . . . he's a bit too big though, especially in comparison to the man directly in front of him . . .
        • Thanks, Qtrmoonshop -- I put his head over that head for comparison, but probably should have factored in the hat on the other guy.
  • Ghostbusters in the War

  • The Joker in Clinton Family Photo

        • One must think out of the box when it comes to Superheroes !!!!
        • The Joker is a super villain or arch enemy, the opposite of a superhero ... there's nothing outside of the box about that ...
        • Well everyone has their opinion Gtrmoonshop . I've seen other contests here where one must see out of the box .
        • Out of the box is good but as far as heroes I disagree with joker imagination wise yes but the heroes part joker is not a heroe
        • I'm sorry, but disregarding the rules is not thinking outside of the box . . . coming up with an idea within the rules, that is totally unexpected and unique and not within the realm of common thinking, that's thinking "outside the box" . . .
        • You read my other comment on my other chop that you said the same thing here . Diddo on what i said too !!!!
        • Hes a Supervillain hero , which puts him in this contest . Read the latest forum !!!
  • Superhero Illusion

    Superhero Illusion
        • Incredible! I LOVE it! Doesn't quite follow the rules, but it's very good.
        • Thanks IcyAllEyeCan, sorry that it's not a photo, I had trouble finding one . . .
          It does have a superhero though, and unless I counted wrong, there are 15 images submitted with no superheroes in them . . . "The Joker" is a supervillain or archenemy . . . he's no more a superhero than "Jeannie" . . .

        • Leonard Nimoy aka Mr Spock of Star Trek is on the left. The ears, Star Trek logo on the shirt and the Vulcan hand signal (for LIVE LONG and PROSPER)should give it away. In this entry I was trying to say that Star Trek fanatics are geeks.
        • is this a band that you used and who was it? curious
        • I think he qualifies as a super hero (obviously).Not a Comic Book Superhero--But an alien (Vulcan) with powers that humans don't have--who sides with the good guys.
