While you got the eye's attention on the mouth, I find the tilt effect awkward. It looks like the dino should be falling over.

Oversaturated Sky.. Check

It's a T-rex...of course it looks "fakeish". You fittingly turned the image into a cartoon. I'm willing to bet this processed image is far more interesting than the original.

I would, however, re-think the tilt.

I think the image is way over processed and the extreme angle doesn't do a thing for it. Sorry.

Yeah, overdone for me as well, and the tilt just looks wrong. The tilt (if you must have it) would probably look better if you rotated the image into portrait orientation, at least then he would look more like rearing up than falling on his face. His head should be at the top of the image to show his size, towering over you, not in the lower right hand corner. It would also have been better to crouch down to emphasize the height, and not have your shadow in the shot so much either.

When doing something in editing, it needs to be done for good reason, and to improve the image. Tilts can improve shots in many cases, but this isn't one of them IMO, it just looks like you randomly pulled effect suggestions out of a hat and applied the tilt because it said "apply tilt".

IMO, changing this to portrait orientation helps a bit.

tough crowd in here today. i'm with this ^^ guy. i think a 90 turn counter clockwise might be better than the current. that's the only real problem i have with it.

well, the shadow of the photographer is a bit distracting, :P
