Great idea and it looks super. The reflections on the side of the blulb internally are very well worked as is the tree. Perhaps a little moer colour on the trunk to give more impact? I like the inglusion of brids inside and flies outside. I think varying the shape and pose of those creatures rather than just changing size and orientation would help make a brilliant image exceptional. Because the flies and gulls are all identical or mirror flipped they look a bit false and the angle of the flies on the finger and at the top of the bulb don't look real for the surface they are on. The gulls are more obviously identical being bunched but I'm sure it would be possible to use different gull and fly images to complete this. Look forward to seeing if you manage to improve it but as I said above, it's already a great achievement Smile

Thank you for your positive comments. You are quite right almiles in that the flies and birds are copies rather than individual ones, however I have very few photos of the afore mentioned and therefore did resort to copying. Where I disagree is about the positioning of the flies in that to me they do not seem false, still we are all entitled to our opinions and I respect yours in fact I am impressed that you took the time to look at my image so closely so thank you.

You can use a bit of transform to make things look a little different if you are stuck with using the same image? For example, transform perspective - if it's not somewhere where you can see the detail massively, this can work. Great image! But I did notice the repetition.
