So this was my take on the 'Dark Knight Rises' movie poster--as editing goes, I was mostly happy with how it turned out, but I definitely wish I had more time with it. The 'fuzzy things' that were pointed out were supposed to be chunks of rock falling from the buildings. I think I overdid the motion blur a bit... It's funny that I didn't even notice it as out of place until someone else said something, now it's all I can see :) I also wish I had more time to edit myself in the photo. I basically just put a Topaz filter on myself and added a CTO overlay. Ha ha--oh yeah--the fact that I'm kind of flipping the bird with my left hand was completely unintentional! I didn't notice that until about the 3rd day of voting!

I'm really happy that this got a ribbon, thanks so much for the comments and votes!

P.S. I don't know if anyone noticed, but the hole in the sky is supposed to be a DPC ribbon--in the movie poster, the hole in the sky is the Batman symbol. I probably should have added some more rubble up there to define it a bit better...

I really like this. However, could someone please explain what a CTO overlay is.
