Wow. I thought for sure there was more editing involved than your comments say. This was better than I thought ;)

Interesting, but too much art and not enough photography for me.

uha great work...

Looking at it for the 4th time, love it... it would probably be great in color also...

excellent digital art! maybe a little too much for me. Not quite in keeping with the photographic nature (IMO).

helicopters shooting lasers! 8 bump to 9
  Photographer found comment helpful.
12/18/2006 02:08:01 PM
Wow! If this isn't digital art at its finest, I don't know what is! This just blows me away! 10! I'd give this a 20 if I could!

This is expert editing at it's finest.
  Photographer found comment helpful.

Outstanding work. For me however, the helicopter is an unnecesary element and transforms this from a heavenly image to an oddly surreal one. Matter of taste really but enough that it took away something from this for me. Good is good and this definately is good... :)

I love everything bout this image except the helicopter

  Photographer found comment helpful.
12/15/2006 05:30:07 PM
This looks so cool!
  Photographer found comment helpful.
12/15/2006 04:29:08 PM
Better without the helecopter, IMO, good work
  Photographer found comment helpful.
12/15/2006 03:02:44 PM
Clearly this is an excellent image. The elements all combine well, it has a very good "feel" to it. The one issue that I have with it is that it is very much in the realm of art rather than photo. So I can't give it a 10, but it's good.

12/15/2006 02:09:58 PM
There's certainly a lot to try to take in here.

Amazing, what an imagination!

...and Jack ran from the castle with the golden-egg-laying goose as fast as he could, and leaped onto the rescue helicopter which then fired a tactical nuclear missile at the pursuing giant, blowing him and the castle to smithereens.

Definitely a ten.

This is more PP than I would like to see at DP, but this is very good.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
12/15/2006 12:48:41 AM
Another artistic and creative composite! I am really voting this up `cause I feel this is the challenge to let your imagination and skills fly... And it is one of the finest I`ve seen trough voting... I will wish you good luck, I hope to see this on the front page, but we don`t know how everyone else will take this kind of submissions.. Anyway, have a 10 from me!
