Great work... I think the 2nd one is a little bit better.

Work on your perspective and lighting a bit...

Color saturation and balance is a biatch when doing manipulations.

Good job though!

Tomasz,

Firstly, sorry for my bad english ;p

1. First i extracting all elements like sheep, road, mountains, clouds from their original images.
2. I'm using Color Balance mask to one by one elements
3. Sometimes i'm using Selective Color mask, but not very often

Have a look at the Masking tool from OnOne.com
Perfect Mask 5 - onOne Software

This thing is unreal man.. you can mask shear fabric when you get good at it.

They have some other good tools I use as well.



Topaz has some nice things as well I use.
Topaz Photoshop Plug-In Bundle



As far as lighting and shading, I actually take the cover off a lamp sometimes and position things the way I want to show in a composition.. Really helpful when doing shiny objects as well as just getting a REAL FEEL to the way light cast on and reflects off objects. ;)



Keep up the good work and best to you and yours..
