Default Lost at Sea - "Rude Awakening"

Here is my final two WIPs for the "Lost at Sea" challenge. I am thinking that I will use one of these two images as an entry. Still working on adding AO to them, but wanted to get some feedback from anyone that would like to give it. Sometimes we stare at an image so long that we miss obvious mistakes. Any critiques would be greatly appreciated. Also, could anyone tell me how to put full size pictures on my posts instead of thumbnails? Thanks.

It`s interesting idea and it look very funny. The guy really has personality.
I make 2 remarks:
In the first, the light of sun it is in front of the guy (look at the shadow of the man). On the other hand, the left part of the ship is blue so it has suggestionig that the light is on right.
Furthermore, everything is almost cartoon, except the sky which it look very realistic.
all the best and thx for your post, also

Default thanks Pinica

Thanks Pinica - very good observations. I noticed the shadow problem, but if I put the main illumination where it should be, the man is in full shadow. Maybe I could use a fill light to bring him out of shadow and not cast shadows in the process. I really like the sky, but I see your point. Thanks for the input.

Photoshop is another solution. you can try to solve the problem of the shadow using a mask. If you rendered in a 3d aplication using multipass, can be much more simple.
good luck
