I have way too much fun with challenges like this! The sand is a mix of brown and white sugar, the sky is blue craft foam, the beach umbrella is a cocktail umbrella (stuck into a smaller piece of craft foam, buried under the sand), the cows and camera are actually 3-D stickers and the palm tree is also 3-D, came from a craft kit. The water is some weird yarn, and the sun is red/yellow bits of craft paper stuck together and taped to the sky.

It probably won't do that well in terms of score, but if it makes people laugh, it makes it worthwhile.

pp: rotate, crop, shadow/highlight, curves, brightness/contrast, saturation, warming filter 85, crop again, flatten image, resize, usm, sharpen edges, save for web.

Cows in brown sugar! What a whimsical idea - you clearly had fun doing this, no need to even say it. :) Love the little added details - the rollicking in the waves, the sunbathing, the camera!

And laughing again, 6 weeks later!

Very creative. I like everything except for the unneeded space for the sky. Maybe a little more of the picture should be the beach/ocean?

Suffers a bit from overall quality with some blur and noise issues but a fun idea and a well composed scene.
