This is quite a stunning picture. I like the overall grey-dark atmosphaire, the waves, and Death. Ths floating sceletons are a great touch!!
THe scene is made even more imposing by the sheer size of Death - everything else is tiny in comparison.

There are a couple of things I feel could be improved, though. The guitar sounds, for istance. I don't know what kind of music he's playing, but death+guitar brings metal and electrical guitars in my mind. Anyway, I feel the 'sounds' coming from the guitar should be much more violent and fiery, to express fear and death etc. The way the light curves now, if it was eg green color, it could be a melody. Anyway, I just have the impression it should be something more violent, with more zig-zags <img src="…" width="15" height="15" alt=":P" title=":P (Lick)"/>
Also, I feel the lightening isn't neccessary, the picture is already awesome as it is. <img src="…" width="15" height="15" alt=":-)" title=":-) (Smile)"/>

About the technical part, I don't know anything about photomanipulation, but I have to say it looks very realistic and so well -done!
