Well, my last attempt to submit this broke the submission page... Lets hope that doesn't happen again.

Anyway, as part of my mission to practice photomanipulations more, I decided to look at the Manipulation Challege group's current challenge, and uponreading the theme, "Long Lovely Ladies" I... well I couldn't resist. I'm a sarcastic person. The challenge was that it had to be a fantasy scene and you had to use at least one of the provided stocks. I chose this one:
delainestock.deviantart.com/ar…

I am going to try to join the group/submit this, but I don't know if it meets all requirements, though. I'm going to ask. If it doesn't, I still had fun with this, imperfections though they may annoy me. Honestly, there was more I could do/wanted to do, but that's my overambition kicking in again and... if I'm being totally honest, I really don't want to look at this again for a while.

Done somewhere between 8 and 12 hours yesterday.

Adobe Photoshop CS4

Thank you!

I added the stock because I could see myself using it at some point, but don't plan to use it just yet. I did have an idea for it though, so we'll see!

Wow.  One of the best photo manipulations I've seen here.  You've not only come up with a wonderful idea, you've executed it spectacularly.  Sometimes, it's pretty easy to see where the various pieces have been "glued" together, but you've done this seamlessly, from the color scheme to the lighting, to the balance and "flow" of the image.

So, my question here is, who is seducing whom?  ;-)

Beautiful, eerie and powerful!
