Its ok, I read a comment on the contest page saying a staff member said that you dont have to use both images, just the final piece ( and if it was a must around half of these entries would have to be disqaulified, which i dont think they would do anyway). Thanks for the kind comment.
Thanks for the comment and the complement. I personaly think that the current sky would look better because it works well with the shadows and looks like the type of cold sky you would get in somewhere like Antartica.
Yes, true, but in all due respect it doesn't have a very prominent post-apocalyptic feel (in my opinion). It looks like a sunny day in Alaska. I seriously think you should win, with the sky being the only issue.
