The End of Mankind
The End of Mankind
In the post-apocalyptic world, no large rivers exist, major cities are ravaged, and man is near-extinct...only small bands of survivors exist, fighting for remaining water sources.

You really nailed it, Mason! The blast and the jets are exactly what this pic needed to complete it. Congratulations!

Thanks for all the votes, everybody. I was fearing that everyone would have done the same thing. I haven't seen the others yet, so hopefully my empty river is unique. :)

Anyways, just some things I'd like to point out. The riverbed is a blend of two shots, the original curved around. I had to make those big, square concrete supports out of a black and white pic of a wall, so I was pleased at how they turned out.
mason4300 mason4300
Now that I have gone through them all, I can't believe that I am the only person that emptied the river! There must be something wrong with me! ;)

"Feral Hamster the river bed is excellent. nice work. a bit more damage to the glass building would've been cool, but this is good stuff." I totally agree, but I didn't think the damaged glass looked very good, so I didn't add any more.

what about monkeys? images always look better if you add monkeys.

Feral:I had a monkey in yesterdays contest and my pic TANKED!
mason4300 mason4300
Dammit! I forgot the monkeys!
Cambria Cambria
Monkeys?? Hmmm... pssst... moderators, Feral is scaring me.

Maybe they're powered by methane or something, Tofu. ;)

you know, I'm kind of dissapointed, really...I only got 60 votes out of an estimated 653 views?! that makes me sad... ;)
Cambria Cambria
mason... we can only vote once! Doesn't mean we don't want to take another look! Awesome chop! Don't be sad!

Mason don't confuse the votes with views. I voted and yet I've come back to this at least 3 times. I re-look to figure out how you did it and to read comments. The views stat is pretty much useless (IMHO).

You completely owned this one. Great work on emptying that river and all the small details. Big congrats on your breakthrough win.

This is really awesome... I'd like to be able to grasp something like this.. Futuristic type reality...
