Started to make a turntable and ended up with this instead. Go figure. 20+ layers, 7 sources, and a brazillion edits. Used lotsa masking, airbrushing, burning, dodging, blending, etc. Sources: [img]

I like the setting and the water pools at the inside edge of the fence. I also like the composition and the tranquility of the scene..

Thanks for all the votes and comments! mrwolf707: I thought the same thing about the bird. Check the source and you'll see it even bigger. The source's true size is huge and titled "cheezedoffseagull.jpg"

Michel: Maybe it's a baby whale that's strayed too close to the shore after separating from its mother.

Holy crap! This is one of my favorite chops that I've done. I'm glad to see it do so well. Currently it's my 2nd highest vote getter with about 5 minutes left.

Little additional tidbit about this chop. The lighthouse is made from the 1/4 mile marker in the original source. The sizes of the marker and the lighthouse are actually identical. I just moved the marker to the horizon the rest is illusion!
