Return of the Vikings - weekly challenge

This week’s theme was "Vikings with a hint of upcycling" picked by VKnO. I’ve wanted to try making nature collages for quiet a while now and thought that this would be a perfect opportunity to do so. I decided to "upcycle" two of my Nature shots and combine them with some digital drawing which resulted in - "Return of the Vikings". I still have tons to learn about collaging but I think it came up rather believable for a newbie :) or what do you think?

This photo was used for the sky. I took this picture last summer, up in the Northern Sweden, very close to the Norwegian border.

This photo were used for the sea. It was taken on one of our vacations in Egypt :) I only had pictures of the northern sea when it is stormy and I wanted on this collage for a weather to be relatively calm. So I chose this shot...

The rest of the details such as sun, mountains and boat were digitally drawn in Photoshop. It took me several days to do that (probably because I'm a newbie) but I'm rather pleased with the results... for now :)

Your collage pic is awesome, I think it's a fantastic job for a newbie! Do you give classes, (as I am apparently digitally challenged!)
