Well i'm glad you think so! Well as it's a manip there are lots of source images, mostly from sxc.hu but the girl for example is from here on dA, and some of the grass textures and sky are my own photography.
Oh, cool. I think it turned out beautifully. Also, I downloaded the trial of CS4 and tried the content-aware scaling. Your artwork served as a wonderful tech demo of how mind-blowing the feature really is. Do you happen to have a link to the house pic you used?
