Hi Crystal

Nice work but there's an issue with the shadow on the stag, also I almost missed the stag in the background and maybe darken the stag on the right a bit

Keep up the good work though :thumbsup:

The edited version is spot on!

An excellent composite idea and a very good implementation.
Love the moody forest atmosphere.

Thank you all for the compliments as it inspires me to do more of them and learn new techniques along with way.

Big thanks to Gedstar for pointing out a obvious oversight so I could correct it and improve the over all composition.
So now to find a new theme and see what develops.
Another credit goes to chrisdesign who spoke of dodge and burn techniques in the past....Little comments like he made stuck with me from way back then to always do a little shading and lightening before calling it done
