Thank you all for you great votes and comments. It was really funny to create this photo. My kids enjoyed a lot, not only during the posing, but mostly when they could eat all the sugar landscape ;-). Using Photoshop to create the final composition was a great challenge for me, as I'm just starting to learn how this amazing tool works. Regarding the title... yes, in Spanish "snail" is spelled "sneil"... I've been soooo may years talking and learning english and still make a lot of mistakes !!

Great photo. It amazes me that people will bump a great image in points because of a title misspelling. This site is not just for people who's first language is English.

Too many people try to find flaws that don't exist to justify scoring lower.

Again great image and congrats.

Great job, what a wonderful and imaginative image. As a nitpick, the candy cloud doesn't seem to work for me. I suspect it is because it is too sharp and doesn't fit with the depth of field you created on the mountain.

i love the fantasy and originality in this. the kids look like they had a lot of fun shooting this, and i'm sure they love the finished product even more!
the colors are vibrant and engaging, the sugar-land looks real enough to eat (and hopefully it was enjoyed after shooting!) and the light in all areas is equally applied (from the screen-right, with the left being darker).
Fantastic job on this and I hope you are as satisfied with it as I am seeing it!
