    I have been using Photoshop for quite a few years now, but I still consider myself to be a beginner. I started with CS6, and am now using CC2020.

    Here are a couple of composite edits that I have done, with quite a lot of help from @Isac.

    The first one is a combination of the statue outside the Australian Stockman's Hall of Fame at Longreach, Queensland, and a scene of wild horses gathered around a waterhole outside Broken Hill, N.S.W

    The stockman.

    The wild horses.

    The final image.

    The second one is a combination of three images, two of Corella's flying in the park next to my house and a sunset shot taken over the Mangroves at Tooradin where I used to live.

    Thanks for looking.
    Comments and critique is welcome.

    the first one works well, like the added shadow too.
    the birds and sunset does not work in my opinion
    the birds need to be adjusted for the colour of the scene, they look photo shopped.
    tinting them with sunset colours before adding them to the sunset scene will give them the golden glow, also they might work as silhouettes / partial silhouettes.
    very nice sunset pic as well.

    Thanks for the feedback Caladina, much appreciated.
    I still have the PSD of the Corella image so I can go back and edit it. I did put some tint in there, but obviously not enough.
