national geographic photoshop collage

Objective: To use a minimum of 20 photographic assets to make a collage in Photoshop. The subject should be fitting for a cover for National Geographic magazine. I chose to make an environmental statement about species extinction by making the photographic images of animals appear carved into the tree stump between the tree rings. If the number of tree rings is supposed to determine the age of the tree I thought the idea of the vanishing species could be represented by their ghost-like form in the wood.
