I can tell you put a lot of work into this deviation, but i do have a few of suggestions to make this a better image. First of all, I had to really search to see the leopard. He is too dark and looks likes he's part of the dark areas in the background. The only way I saw him was the eyes. Try to bring out the leopard more by putrubf another layer on top of what you have.

Another problem is the palm leaves. Palm leaves are large, and not only that, but they are also in the nearest foreground, so they should be much bigger than they. Remember about the lesson in atmospheric perspective? If not, you need to read it: [link]

Also take a look at my latest to see what I mean: :thumb252312513:

The same issue is with the butterflies. I get the feeling that she's standing against the elephant, so that is not a baby elephant. Yet you have the butterflies above the elephants head. Butterflies would be closer to the ground.

Sorry if I sound a little harsh, but I want you to present to the judges your best work. Hopefully you can take care of all or some of these little errors
now before the judging begins tomorrow.

I made a couple of changes you suggested. I hope the leopard can be seen easier. I have a feeling that it may of been a screen issues, as he was very clear on mine but hopefully you can see him now.

The palm leaves look a whole lot better (I've had a variety of palm trees in my yard once, so I know how the size can also vary). I didn't even notice them because they looked so natural in the image. And the leopard is easier to see also.

It's not what makes me happy, it's according to the laws of atmospheric perspective. Now the image has a little more illusion of depth than it had before. :D

I was actually just in an indoor asian rainforest this weekend with actually plants. There are palms that are actually pretty small and the size here is actually pretty acurate. But I can make them bigger if that will make you happy. Also the butterflies were always over head, very few hung out the ground. This is because most flowers are higher up in the jungle due to the flowers being high up due to the lack of light on the ground. So it would not be a huge stretch for them to be around the head level.

I will try and bring the leopard out more. I believe that it is the texture that is overlayed that is makin him dark.
