Literally. All of the images that made up this seascape were taken today in New Mexico, no where near the ocean. No painting or anything, it's all images - oh, except for the birds. Not even sure how to write the directions, it was pretty complex...

Easy part, this was the overlay I used
' . substr('//images.dpchallenge.com/images_portfolio/70000-74999/74559/120/Copyrighted_Image_Reuse_Prohibited_793218.jpg', strrpos('//images.dpchallenge.com/images_portfolio/70000-74999/74559/120/Copyrighted_Image_Reuse_Prohibited_793218.jpg', '/') + 1) . '

my mess of layers
' . substr('//images.dpchallenge.com/images_portfolio/70000-74999/74559/120/Copyrighted_Image_Reuse_Prohibited_965383.jpg', strrpos('//images.dpchallenge.com/images_portfolio/70000-74999/74559/120/Copyrighted_Image_Reuse_Prohibited_965383.jpg', '/') + 1) . '

I took a bunch of images today thinking they might be useful as overlays. When I started layering them together it started to look like a seascape to me to I changed blending modes, resized, rotated and masked as necessary to create the seascape. The birds are a brush from Obsidian Dawn. Here are the images used:

Oh wow. GOOD GRIEF. OMG!!! I am just stunned and awed. So gorgeous. Seriously, this needs to be a 6 X 5 foot canvas over a huge couch or in a modern office. Absolutely stellar. FAV? You bet.

I feel like I'm in the middle of a storm!
I love those tendril lightning thingies above the birds : )

Great creation of something from elements unrelated. Looks like there's a storm coming in. You've already copped some drops on your camera, time to make a run for it.
