Excellent artwork on its own. The use of the source is a bit subtle on the first look. Wish the elements from the source took more central place and bigger space in the composition, in the light of the contest
It took me a moment to find the source, anyway good try.
I like how you changed the shapes & sizes of the bird as well as the colors
Clever idea though coloring needs more work to look natural. Usually the shadow areas do not have colors as intensive as they mid with the shadow colors. So a natural color spread on an object under light and shadow is spread not so uniformly
Ha, ha, ha. The only point is what will women think about it.
Nice job, you deserve credit for doing the traffic lights from scratch in photoshop. They do seem to be floating in the air though, and I would try to find a photo source for them to go with the photo background.
The photo for today's contest was taken this Saturday near the Sydney Exhibition Centre, where the science-fiction convention "Oz Comic-Con" is held. That explains the astronaut on a pedestrian crossing. "That's one small step for man... hold on Mission Control, I see the stop sign!"
Photoshop this photo of a traffic guard any way you wish.
Traffic lights as we know them today have been following the international standards set in the 1950s - the red light above the green, with yellow between. While the traffic lights for vehicles remained the same since then (only added countdown timers on them), many specific forms of traffic lights were introduced through the years - for pedestrians, for cyclists, as well as for public transport. These additional types of traffic lights differ quite a bit from country to country.
Redesign existing traffic lights any way you wish - re-shape, re-color, re-number them, or design traffic lights for any specific groups of traffic or commuters (for trucks only, for rockets, for pirates, for women, for children, etc.). These are just some ideas.
Many thanks to lucianomorelli for the themepost.
The situation in Ukraine keeps getting worse. Putin got the authorization from Russia's parliament to deploy Russian troops into Ukraine, to "protect its interest in Crimea and protect the Russian population there". While, formally, no Russian troops have been deployed in Crimea yet, Russia used its troops stationed at the Black Sea Fleet base to gain total control of the Crimean Peninsula. The local Ukrainian troops defected, joined Russian forces, and pledged to the Crimean authorities who demand independence of the Crimean Peninsula from Ukraine. Russian military units are freely moving on the roads of Crimea with noone to stop them. Do they have to follow the traffic rules too?
Photoshop traffic/road signs designed for military units (for infantry, navy, or air force). The signs can warn of the dangers ahead, show info, or show some restrictions and rules for military units to follow.
You are welcome to show your signs at some scenery or just on their own.

The Republic of San Marino is the oldest surviving sovereign state in the world, founded on 3 September 301. It separated from the Roman Empire and remains one of the smallest countries in Europe with the population of about 30,000. San Marino is surrounded by Italy and its official language is Italian. Despite the small size, San Marino's economy has been thriving since its foundation - it has the lowest unemployment rate in Europe, no national debt, and high budget surplus.

The Syrian army keep pressing an offensive against rebels, bombarding and destroying a lot of Syrian infrastructure, including roads and traffic signs. Experts say rebuilding the Syrian infrastructure will take considerable time, just like it took to rebuild Iraq. Meanwhile, until this military conflict is over, perhaps Syria needs new traffic signs designed and installed?
Design new traffic signs for streets and roads in Syria which will reflect the new "traffic rules", warnings and dangers in everyday life in Syria.
