Great composition Jim! However the light angles clash making it a sure give-a-way as a fake cut and paste. Try moving the back ground more to the left and adding an orange cast to the left side of the light house and highlights on the shrubs.

Sorry I forgot to Note : This IS a 2 photo integration ( not over the counter software) . I will be posting many more 2 and some 3 photo compositions - but it will be noted - and none will be entered in the contest. Jim Zell
I agree w/ your comments - And I will take your advice re: the changes.
People that buy the "faux art canvas prints" of this just the way it is -
but you are right - it really should be corrected. Thanks for the comments, Jim Zell #15179
