Well this is beautiful, has that realism in spite of fantasy which is always tricky for photo manipulations. Good show,

The mermaids are smoothly blended into this picture and give a dramatic affect to this piece. The sitting mermaid is by far my favorite, but seems too different from the other mermaids. I can tell she has been photoshopped into the picture. The only other word of advice I have for you is that the doves look very out of place. The doves are copies of each other in different sizes. They don't blend with the whole picture and seem very unrealistic because they appear to have been stamped repeatedly on the picture. If you continue to work on blending you can rise to great potential and become an even better artist than you already are! Overall good job! Well done

Thank you very much for all the comments.

I can see what you mean, this art was made when I was a beginner at photoshop, last year. Luckily I am getting better bit by bit.

Thank you for your input, obviously it really does help and I completely appreciate your input and time that it took you to write this.

Thank you very much :)

THis is very nice and interesting exploration of multiple images presented in a single scene. THe collaboration of images from various talents and merge together here is interesting and the way you've used your talents to create teh setting works well. There are certainly a lot potentials here with the way you've created the idea, yet it feels that it is missing a certain level of magic to make it truly shine. The way some of the design appear in the water certainly feel unfinished and that if a little more time was spent and experimented with they could have certainly stood up much more than what is already shown.

You do show potentials and a good know how, yet it just require a bit more time toying around with effects and options within the program. There is certainly a strong story telling element and mastery for this genre found within the project, but it needs a little more to make it work.
