    It's over processed - for my tastes...

    However, it is quite awesome anyway, and looks like it should be a movie poster...

    Very nice! It has an grunge-steampunk feel to it.

    One of the hardest things about mixing various elements into one is getting them to look like one and not pieces. I did notice a shadow missing for the red cylinder thing on the right side.

    It took me a very long time! Probably 20 hours editing in total (the Photoshop file was over 3GB.) There are a number of reasons it took me so long.
    1. I am not exactly fluent in PS - my guess is that someone decent at PS could do it in 4 hours or so.
    2. With a photoshop composite you have a lot of opportunities to put things right - it just takes time. With a photo you are basically stuck with what you shot.
    3. You have infinite opportunities to add, subtract and rearrange images. I actually took quite a lot of stuff out at the end because the image was becoming too crowded.

    Anyways it is a great learning experience!

    BTW you can see a larger version of the image in my Flickr account (see signature).

    Hi Robbie,

    Well done! I think that you should be very proud.
