I literally had to take 10 seconds to fully absorb this picture. The broad view showing both above and underwater always fascinates me, but the secret, of only our knowledge, of the octopus being the island itself astounded me in its originality and vision.

I don't often - if ever - write critiques, but this piece made such an impact, I had to write something, so I could applaud you on your creation. I love the whole story behind the approach of the ship to this Octopus Island. It makes you wonder how things will turn out for the sailors…

The dolphins, the bird, the lighting all adds a very paradise-like, euphoric aura, if you will, to the above portion of the picture, while the bottom is foreboding and dark, foreshadowing the fate of the approaching ship perhaps.

Generally I'm not as big a fan of photomanipulations as I am traditional art or photography (mostly unedited), but this gives me a true appreciation for the art behind photomanipulations.
What do you think?

Great work, send me shivers down the spine. I always fear the deep sea, and this makes a perfectly gentle tropical isle seem so much worse. That being said, there are some minor things I think you could do better. The first is that the ship in the background is accompanied by two 'modern' sailing yachts in front of it. The two sails in front are actually part of them. Secondly I think the dolphins jumping out of the water are a great addition to the empty space in that part of the picture, but I wouldn't let them jump out of the water on the 'edge' of where the water hits the above/under water, if you know what I mean. And thirdly I think the birds are a bit 'random'. Either make some more or make them appear with less in the group. That's basically what jumps to mind on looking at this. Keep at it!

This is great, and I'd like to use it for a school project about the sea and dreams in film (and your skills are far beyond mine, so it'd just save me some time). As I need (even if you didn't care) to credit everything that isn't mine, should I do so to PSHoudini, or you'd prefer your name?

That's an amazing picture. But also kind of terrifying, especially the way it gets gradually darker the further down it goes.

Totally awesome, fascinating work! The only thing I noticed is the edges of the island; the sand, where the beach actually ends, looks like its just floating on the top of the water as the head of the octopus isnt quite large enough to look like its completely holding it up. BUT its still amazing! I love the lighting and the depth of the water <3

Fantastic, your works are always awe-inspiring. I love the steps to this one, there is much more needed than just a well known software - one gets the impression you know right from the beginning where you want to go and how to achieve that.

Thank you for sharing!
