It was so much fun putting this shot together but much more work than anticipated. It took me an entire day to make the water, crochet the hammock, make the trees and backdrop.

pp - a bit of contrast and a small amount of blur
removed a few imperfections from the Vegs

I'm very excited about my ribbon, it's been awhile since my first and only.
Thanks everyone for the votes and mice comments.

Big cheers and a congrats with the ribbon.
I find this photo very interresting and funny. I am especially curious about the blue ocean and the backdrop. I would love a notice about how You accomplished those. It looks like oil painting, but am I right?

This fun image was well worth all the time you spent on those details!
Especially those trees. Slicing the carrots made the trees all the more "realistic".

I LOVE how creative this is! Great idea to cut the carrots into slices so it does look more like the trunk of a palm tree. And the Bell peppers! Never would have thought of shaping them to look like the tops of palm trees. Potato 'islands':-) That little ducky is sitting pretty in the hammock:-) Love the imagination and the way you put this scene all together. Hope to see this in the top 5!
