Great idea and well executed. I'd make the tail more opaque and the man's head more opaque so the fish's head doesn't show through.
Thanks guys, took your advice pcrdds and made those changes, it does look better with the man head not having two eyes - .
after reviewing the rest of the pics in the contest i can say so far this is a first place picture. although i'll say that the only thing i can see that needs improvement is the face of the fish...it is lacking the detail that the rest of the picture gives...making the face of the fish like an eyesoar. maybe its just the detail of the eye and/or the nose of the fishman but there definately needs to be selective detail put into certain parts of the face to make this picture a 10 in my opinion
yeah looked into this particular piece longer than i have with any other piece on this site....definately needs more detail in the face of this pic and its definately a first place pic because the rest of it sure is
Awesome creativity here.Hats off.
Brilliant, a really clever idea well executed, even to the sign.
This Tuesday would have been the 101st birthday of French undersea explorer Jacques Cousteau who co-invented the Aqua-Lung, a breathing device for scuba-diving in 1943. He also became famous through his books and films and whose hawk-like figure became a ubiquitous TV presence in the 1960s and 70s with the U.S.-sponsored television series "The Undersea World of Jacques Cousteau." Former naval officer, Cousteau tried to show us the underwater world in all its beauty. One of Cousteau's friends later said about him: "Jacques was a rare French man who loved the sea as much as he loved women."
To pay a tribute to Jacques Cousteau's invention of the Aqua-Lung, take any famous place (tourist attraction, city, landscape) and photoshop it underwater. Here's a good example by TiredTom.
Last week Google paid tribute to Jacques Cousteau on what would have been the French undersea explorer's 100th birthday. Google homepage had a drawing of a scuba diver, which revealed the phrase "Happy 100th Birthday Jacques Cousteau!" when placing the cursor over the drawing.
U.S. lawmakers also rendered homage to Cousteau last week with a resolution honoring a man who became famous through his books and films and whose hawk-like figure became a ubiquitous TV presence in the 1960s and 70s with the U.S.-sponsored television series "The Undersea World of Jacques Cousteau."

Australian Geographic magazine sponsored an unusual project - the construction of an underwater house where aquanauts may stay for weeks without leaving. The first underwater mission was successfully completed by a trained aquanaut and lasted for 13 days. The 8 by 10 foot under-sea home is constructed from the metal parts and maintains healthy air pressure and oxygen levels to recreate living conditions in the atmosphere. The special chambers supply oxygen to the room, and filter out the carbon dioxide produced from breathing. Last but not least, this sea house has a supply of food in the fridge and is equipped with a bathroom.
Photoshop underwater houses one way or another. Show how humans would live underwater, but your entry must include the underwater house somewhere in it. What housing construction elements will be needed to maintain a good life style underwater? We will also accept partially submerged houses in this contest.
On Friday seventy-four scuba divers danced simultaneously underwater at Sydney's Olympic Park Aquatic Centre and set the new world record for the largest underwater dance class. ]
If 74 scuba divers simultaneously jerking underwater is called "dancing", you might as well call simultaneous screaming of 74 monkeys "an opera performance", and call it "a record". On the other hand I think I might just have discovered what caused Tsunami waves this morning.
In this contest you are asked to photoshop people dancing underwater. Any dance styles and dance outfits are good enough as long as they are SFW (safe for work) and are underwater.
