A more traditional type of manipulation, used Amida's Gammon Head Beach for the base. All photoshop work, a special thanks to my dad for giving me the extra viewpoint on this. Comments/questions welcome 8•)

Wow ... girl ... is strutting her stuff.

This is beautiful. And such a thought provoking, and at the same time, a very tranquil image for me. Love ... love your title. Apt, doesn't even come close. Perfect? ... yes.

What an incredible manipulation. Without the benefit of your narrative, I would have thought that this was pure cgi. And that ... that is the highest compliment I can pay you.

Caveats ... a little more illumination on the right-hand portion, simply, because you leave me wanting to see more of this in its' best 'light.' Really nice work Cat. Really nice.

You've done a great job of portraying my favorite time of day: twilight. There's a hint of Maxfield Parrish in this: just a touch of his blues...a bit of his hyper-realistic details...a feeling that I can't describe. Beautiful work. Good luck.

Thank you all for the great comments. Know what the only problem w/doing this right before the contest deadline? There's about 14 things I'd want to fix if I'd had an extra day to look @ it. lol. (Have I mentioned I'm a slight perfectionist?).

Anyways… my carpal tunnel is happy I'm done now, and between the masking job on this and the hair of creatures on the other… *goes off to find icepack for the wrist*

P.S. Les… turn your monitor up! *snicker*

Well this is for me the best manipulation of my capture. . a lovely balance between not loosing the original and yet adding so much more to the subject. Well done and I hope you win with this one!!!!

Okay. So you're in the Heart of a Storm. Everything is perfectly calm, right? But you know that at any minute that calm is going to go away, and everything is going to be in chaos, and the world around you will literally blow you away. I want to be there.
