Seems you're one of those compositors who enjoy compositing effects to a photo!
I'm not overly keen on 'Good Night For Zombie Slaying' as it looks noticeably edited, but in a way it does look gamey and just a bit of fun. '007' is pretty good though, although I feel the explosion could be bigger and more dangerous looking. 'The Horde' is by far the best one you've got though, great lighting, and some good attention to detail. You could do with more zombie clones though! Also the smoke in the background seems a bit opaque.
Good shots though! Well done!

I do like my zombies, it has to be said. I agree with poster above that #3 is the best out of the bunch. One tip though: try to play with the blending mode in layers (assuming you used something like photoshop/gimp/paintshop and composed with multiple layers). This will help blending in things like the smoke or the explosion; right now it looks too much like cut & paste. If you would have used something like "screen", or "overlay" it would sell the effect much more.

Also try playing with the feather function. The 3rd image is the best one but the feet on the 2 guys in the front give away the fact they were placed there. It's a little choppy. Also the guy on the left needs some shadowing where his feet are in contact with the floor.
Not criticism but tips for future images!

and the reason he feet were like that is because they were a different picture and a cloud was over them at the time but thanks

Rather than open a new thread, I wanted to see if anyone would care to critique some of my images as well (updated with spring time photos). Anyways, here is the link- http://www.flickr.com/photos/dvdarren/
