This is a beautifully constructed manipulation and it’s clear much thought has gone into the use of source images and colours. The tiger being the central focus, has been masked well and some of the water splashes have been cleverly carried over from its source image to the manipulation; adding to the effect of air bubbles under water. The sea stretching out to the horizon and dramatic sky are captivating and draw me further into the scene.

The light from the sun, illuminating from the top right (highlighting the sky and sea) appears to be in disagreement with the lighting on the tiger, which is lit from the left. If desired an adjustment to this would produce a more realistic impression.

The well-constructed underwater environment, which has been convincingly lit and colour adjusted is enhanced by the addition of the sea bed, fish and air bubbles, which all add depth to the experience.

Overall an inspiring and wonderful creation, good job!

I like how detailed this picture is. From the wet fur to the shadows and manipulation of the water; it is all perfect. The look of the tiger's face is remarkable, and I'd be quite suprised if you didn't need a reference or two for this kind of perfection. It looks surreal, and realistic at the same time; an indescribable kind of balance. It truly is beautiful. Having the "camera" half above and below the water gives it a kind of beauty that you can't get by just seeing either side by itself, and it gives the picture both warm and cool colors that keep everything interesting. I love it!
