I understand they were unaltered or at least not suposed to be. But when you put the new sky in, they must have gotten a bit masked over.

There is clearly a sharpness diffrence.

Sorry Bob. I gotta agree with the others.. I wasn't looking for a fake. I only glanced at the images for eye appeal. If you want a hard critique on masking skills, please ask for that. Anyone taking the time to look closely can certainly tell on these images... nothing special going on there.

A real test would not throw up two for comparison. Just one.

I don't mind doing another, as long as we know that is what you want us to do. And then, we should critique it for technique, pointing out what we think are telltale signs... so you can improve your skill sets.

It's hard for some to accept the comment, but you need to be honest about yourself how good you really are in blending this photo...

I just take 1 second look and can tell this photo doesn't look real. But good try is a good try
