This is my entry for Over The Horizons Contest!NEWS
Hello everyone and welcome!
We Start Our Contest TODAY!
:)
I know that the information below seems like a lot, but I only do this to be sure that ALL of you are doing the same thing to give you more chances to win in your skill level. I really think "open" contests are not fair; usually, only those with advance photomanipulation skills win. Not here! You ALL have the chance to win some great stuff!

:bulletred: BEFORE YOU GET STARTED ON YOUR ENTRY: Let Me Take This Time To Remind You Of Something VERY Important :bulletred:
There are more and more pre-cut out stock for us to use now; AND there are a many more stock accounts that have 3D Rendered stock.  
We at ManipulateThis are Traditional Photomanipulators who use photo stock, unless I say it's a 3D Rendered Challenge or if it's okay to Mix Media; that is, use Photo Stock with 3D Rendered stock.
You will find many good looking 3D Rendered stock that look like photos, so BE CAREFUL! ONLY Photo Sto
held by :iconmanipulatethis:

So, this is my first time manipulating a landscape. I saw the contest and thought it might be pretty fun even though I've never done anything like it before. Usually I'm terrible at creating a full background, and when I do it just with a couple stocks. This one I used 10! And that doesn't include brushes!
What do you think? I like the way it turned out.

Inspiration: Landscape Premade by Whendellby :iconwhendell:

Beautiful. I love the atmosphere and mood that you created; great fog effect. You created a nice illusion of depth and space, but I do have a suggestion. On the area of the waterfall in the nearest foreground, it would be nice to see the whitest areas sparkle just a bit more with highlights. There should be water droplets brushes available to help pull that area even more forward with more detail. Also, the area of the falls that is directly in the next level, which could be consider the beginning of the middle ground, could be just a touch sharper and brighter; that's why it's important to bring more detail into the nearest foreground.

The rest is perfect. Good job!

Yeah, definitely out of my comfort zone for this one. I'm actually really thrilled with all the faves I got on it! :la: I wasn't expecting to get half as many!
I kinda copied Whendell's idea for turning the beach into a lake---I even used the same stock, I think, lol I hope that's not stealing! :blush:
Anyway, I'm glad you like the way it turned out :heart: And thanks for the well wishes. I need all the luck I can get!Stardew face

Epicness attracts the crowd obviously as you can see you are epic :D.
Okay, enough with me being a fanboy honestly I have no idea who
Whendell is but still the idea is great. No, it's not stealing silly lol or you'd
probably get trolled by a bunch of people on DA.
You're welcome :).

Lol, all you need to know is that Whendell is a much more epic artist than I will ever be, and I despair of ever having anything worth viewing when I see his stuff, but despite this fact, I never tire of trying to steal all his tricks and fans and use them for my own foul purposes :rofl:
No, but really I just like to get inspiration from people like Whendell. I would give you a link to his profile, but if he sees it, he would... actually, I don't know what he would do. Probably nothing. Ah! I'm raving on now! :lol:
You're right, if there's know trolls, then it probably isn't stealing. Inspiration is a different thing. Besides, I credited him in the description anyway...
Awww, at times I feel like such a good girl! Maybe I won't take over the world after all! Maybe....

I am sure I have come across his work but did not really realize it. So it seems you are a fan girl
of his lol. Lol, you don't have to link me I will probably come across him eventually.

Wait a second, you think you're a good girl at times?
