I'm going to be honest :devilish: , i dind't like that much this one, the sky is pitch black but the mountains and ground are iluminated and bright and with a weird yellow colour that dont know where it comes, the deers having in consideration the distance and the mountains etc have dinosaur dimension XD.

Of course dont be discourage and keep trying that's how you learn, and of course it's only my opinion and could be wrong.

Cheers!

Hey Crystal,

This isn't right (in my view).
The first thing is not using panoramic views unless it serves a purpose. A 4:3 ratio is the 'photo' ratio or something like it.
Then you need a focus point in the composite, the main subject.
Also make it big enough to be considered the focus point, otherwise it gets lost in the overall composite.
Choose your pictures carefully in order to make illumination fit because that is the hardest part.

So back to the drawing board...:thumbsup:

Thank you so much for that ratio tip as I wasn't sure and got confused which option to choose when I downloaded the file pictures to use.....Anymore tips please list them so I can learn to be better...Back to the drawing board LOL

That ratio isn't mandatory but its easy and nice.
Sometimes a composite needs an other ratio...

Hi Crystal
It' s good if you create your composite with large images. Your image size is 7776 pixel in width.
But before uploading your work to the forum you have to reduce the image size to approximately 2000 pixel.
Save this size under a new filename only for the forum upload.

Reduced for forum upload

I uploaded the reduced size to show that it works.
Generally forum users don't like links, and prefer to click on images.

Everything about creating a more interesting composite is already mentioned by other members, and I do agree with them.
The positive critique from forum members will help you to improve your PS skills, and I personally look forward to see your next creation.

As always art (which is what you are producing) is subjective. All I can say is genuinely my wife just glanced as the screen while I had your composition up and she said "Ohhh I love that!"

Keep plugging away - as you have shown with your colorizations you have the ability to get better and better - I am really looking forward to future postings.

Cheers

John

Thank you so much ChrisDesign, thats a Huge help...... I took a screen shot so I can do just that from now on

Just another thought for reducing a big image so a small image.
I normally reduce the size in 3 steps. This will result in a much better quality.
In your example do the following:

From 7776 pixel reduce to
5000,
3500
2000.

Sometimes I apply a little 'unsharp masking' in the middle size.
Start with these values. Though never increase the pixel value, rather the percentage value.
