Ah well, took more than 5 minutes to do this but seeming as i am a n00b at most of the features on Photoshop i dont think it looks too bad.

What's the rules regarding including other people's work? If I remember correctly from the "create-a-composition" competitions, all images that weren't created by you personally had to be from a stock site, or free for personal use etc. Do we have similar rules for these types of comp?

Hrmm SB though it's a great entry, I see that more deemed as a photo entry with text. This is a digi art entry, I think we'd want users to create everything FROM SCRATCH or completely edit a stock image.

Yea don't use unauthorized images. Either they have to be taken by you or from a stock gallery.

Here's mine. I just call it "Spring Thaw".
I rendered it with Terragen at 3200 x 2400 and added the lens flair in PS.

Yes...i knew that was wrong. I will scrap that and work on something else. The more i look at it the worse it gets so its just as well you picked a flaw.

Correct. Terragen is a landscape generating program. You start by generating a terrain and add a surface map (which simulates the ground cover). Then you can add or control features such as water, atmosphere, clouds, camera position, target position and zoom, and a whole bunch of other goodies. It took about a half hour to get a landscape that I thought was interesting. I actually "over smoothed it" on purpose which is why the sides of the mountain are overexageratedly smooth. You don't normally find that in nature and I thought it was an interesting effect. Then the render took about 4 hours to produce the final image.

I like his too. Makes me think of many greeting cards I've seen for Easter over the years. I like SB's too, but it makes me think of work (reminds me gardening time is just around the corner *lol)
