Seeing the original, it doesn't really look like you did anything too drastic in the edits. The colors in the original are great. I would maybe desaturate the blues in the sky just a bit, and maybe recover some of the shadows on the T-rex head. Not sure if you have children, but I can certainly see this hanging in a kid's room.

Other than being accused of being a dinosaur myself I know the T-rex doesn't live today. That plus the other issues mentioned leads me to go with fake.;-)a

One comment I would make about this shot, is to keep an eye on subject separation when composing your image. This shot is spoiled by the head of the rear dino going into the neck of the other one. If you had just circled around to the left a couple of feet, the dinosaurs would be separated and give a much better composition.

i totally see that now,i was hoping to get the further dinos head to come past the closer ones neck so u could see both heads,it was super sunny that day and i had to watch where the sun was,i will go back for sure,its not far from my place

You definitely have developed a style that encompasses a lot of saturation and clarity bumping. One thing I do know, is photographers HATE people bumping clarity and saturation too much but the general public LOVE it. This is evident in automotive photography more than anything.

That said, most photographers will shun you for over processing your images whereas a normal joe will think you've got the best camera of all time.

Tilt aside, I just find the sky is too overdone and distracting. Tone that bit down and I think it "works"

I think this could easily be taken a lot further off the reservation in terms of "over the top".

I really like the processing on this!

for me the main thing that it very distracting is the sky. It's actually darker than the foreground, which is awkward to look at. I think you pushed a little too far in the HDR effect and clarity, and the tilt is dizzying. Other than that I really do like how you cant help but go "woah" when you see this because it's not something you see every day. Very intriguing!

Yeah, personally I think your images are a bit "overcooked" for my tastes. But at least for now, it seems to be your thing. At least you have a style. And it's not like you don't know what you're doing. Your images clearly don't look like that due to accident, you're obviously making deliberate decisions to get your images to look exactly how you want them to look.

So, if that's your style, I say go for it. If you're working intelligently and working with intent, then just stay true to your vision and learn how to make it work for you. Don't try to be something that you're not, realize who you are and then find out how to keep taking advantage of that.

Having said that, don't shrug off your critics. Because this kind of style isn't gonna work for everything. That style isn't generally to my tastes, but I don't think there's inherently anything wrong with it and it certainly has its place. But sometimes it's just not what the image needs. If it ain't working then it ain't working.
