Hey guys! So, I'm hoping to get some feedback on my most recent manipulations and this seemed like the most appropriate place to ask for it. I'm still very out of practice as it has essentially been years since I've spent any time on Photoshop, that being said, I think I'm finally starting to find my style again. Hoping to get some tips and tricks from you more experienced artists, and possibly a bit of an idea on if this is even the style that people like to see on HP. Anyways, any feedback is appreciated! Also, the "Scottish Forest Grey" is currently up for auction.

I think you're really close. The dog and the driftwood don't look part of the pictures though. They look very much pasted on. Does that make sense? I think you will need to blend them in, but I'm not sure how to. Hopefully someone else knows?

im nor a graphic person by anymeans but I would say blending could be better :)

like the deer in the back looks like its supposed to be there but the horse looks super bright and could be a smidge bigger? the rock looks huge compared to the horse

I'm not a pro and far from considering myself one but from my experience, pertaining to the tips listed above, try messing with the curves. That always seemed to help with toning down brightness, evening things out and such.

 They look great though and Partners at Work is a cool concept!

It's missing shaddows for one. When you have the sun hitting something it creates a shaddow and that's why they're not 'sitting' in the image properly. The images you've put in are too bright so they stand out. You need to adjust their brightness and levels when you add them to the background and then the levels as a whole image. If you practise at these things eventually you'll get it and you'll make great images! Try having a look at other peoples work and see how they position their shaddows and then youtube a tutorial for creating a shaddow. It's simple to do but takes time to make it look realistic! Hope this helps :)

i could probably be tempted with an aqh backup since your lines are short ;)
