What I Like About It: 1. The looks on the penguins' faces. 2. The seamless blending and splicing of photos into one image. 3. The way watermelon was integrated into the picture. 4. The little fish attached to the penguin on the right's hand by a string.

What I Like About It: I love this photo / manipulation. I don't know the original intent of this photograph, but it definitely tells a story. My interpretation of this photo is: There's an artist who has become bored with normal forms of art, so he has decided to create a new life/personality as part of a cultural art experiment. That would make an interesting story. Anyways, this photo has some great elements: the drawings in the background, the photo collage, the mess around the room, and of course the artist taking off his costume. These combination of elements make for a cool scene. To see some more of Stefan's work and see the process behind some projects, visit his site here.

What I Like About It: There's something about these photo manipulations I really like. A few of the things I like are the way the word dub was incorporated into the city skyline, the blending of the space like background with the woman's face, and the colors and texture of the background. I personally like the red one better, but they are both great. All the elements fit nicely together and make a great cohesive design.

What I Like About It: At first glance, this image looks like an illustration, but in actuality it is made of many different photos/images. The impressive thing about this picture is the varied sources used to create it. The images were grabbed from various places and blended seemlessly into one image, which means the idea was conceptualized before creating it. I also like the film noir look mixed with sci fi elements. It gives the design a unique look.

What I Like About It: For all the design and photoshop nerds, this is a great image. Any time someone takes the Photoshop interface and incorporates it into a design, it becomes really popular, and this is no exception. I like how the Photoshop elements are hand drawn, and not created using Photoshop. There's a kind of irony there. The eraser effect is well done, and the hand holding the toolbar adds a nice touch.

What I Like About It: This piece by a Russian artist tebe_interesno from live journal does a great job of taking a real photo, and putting a monster / creature in it. The lighting is done perfectly on the creature, The top of its head is highlighted from the right angle, and the shadow plays off perfectly. I love the expression on the creature's face, it is one of curiosity and wonder. It makes you want to go hug it if it weren't such a giant.

Title: Mixed Fruit?
What I Like About It: I'm not really sure who created this image, but whoever it was created a great photo manipulation. The creator of the image took great time and care into blending different fruits/foods into the lemon. The angle and perspectives of each slice are also pretty well done. If you know who created this, leave a comment below.

What I Like About It: There is a lot of implied action in this piece. The police car seems to be evaporating, liquifying, and shattering apart. Even so, they are so well blended together that none of them stands out more than the others, and they seem to create a cohesive affect. The birds in the background create a nice affect. They appear to be cutting the car into pieces.
