Creating a background

Hello! I am new here and was hoping to get some help!

I have an image that I want to make a background with. I attached a copy of the original file (http://www.retouchpro.com/forums/att...3&d=1315432935) and also the file of what I came up with so far (http://www.retouchpro.com/forums/att...p;d=1315432938). (Higher resolution versions are available but I had to shrink them down so I could post them here.)

I wanted to extend the scene in the picture so it would keep going to the right, but I couldn't make it look as seamless as I wanted it to. I used a clone stamp tool to copy the skyline of the city and also to fill the sky with bats. Does anyone have any advice on how I could make the scene look more natural and connected and less rough? My photoshop skills are limited so please bare with me.

P.S. I accidentally posted this message in the image help section, but it might be more appropriate here.

Re: Creating a background

superman, Welcome to RetouchPRO Hope you enjoy your stay here and make lots of friends. Poke around, ask questions, offer help, have fun!

If you use Photoshop you can post fairly large pictures which are under 100k using the 'save for web' function in Photoshop as described here:
Size, Quality and/or Format your Attached Images.. (Click here)

How to attach Files/Images to your Posts or Threads:
(Click here)

If you want to post a larger resolution that is over 100K then you can host your image elsewhere and attach a link in the thread, but also please attach an under 100K version (so the thread remains useful in the future, regardless of external links).
Other Hosts if you do not have your own site:
ImageVenue.com (3Meg max, free) pixentral.com (2Meg max, free) photobucket.com (1 Meg max free, 5 Meg PRO) mediafire.com (100 Meg per file, free) post a link in the thread to the site that is hosting the larger image.
