...or how about making our psd files available after the contests for others to discect and learn from?

That really would be great.

Again, I'll be happy to put them on my site if someone else has bandwidth issues.

The PSD files would be awesome.

Good job both of you, can't wait for the next contest.

Kai for sure deserves 1st place. The lake trick was really cool. Not sure how he got the reflection of the mountains. Maybe a mirror image in the camera filters to a selected area and then adjust color and saturation.
What I did is look thru several hundred photos until I found a deer that had the light and shadows that would match the photo. Once I got the deer into the photo I kept tweeking the colors and contrast/saturation until it appeared to match the slight blue haze of the valley.
I breifly thought of putting in a river and small lake but did'nt think I'd be able to make it look natural. I'll leave that to Kai.
