This is really cool! I love the aquarium idea. Don't know that I've seen that one before. Bonus points for you!
The color matching is really solid. The blue light is really cool, and your lighting and shadows are all really consistent. There are a couple spots where things don't quite line up, like the light source on Mr. Statue's chest, where the light is on the opposite side of the trident lightning, but that didn't jump out at me until my twelfth time looking it over (good job with the lightning, by the way! Lightning can be such a pain to get right. Yours looks spot on! Nice job integrating it into the whoe picture!).
As a whole, the composition looks great, and great job making skin look like marble. That's a really solid material change. The head looks a fraction too large for the body, but that might have been your only option to make the other landmarks line up. The blending from head to chest is seamless, by the way. I didn't realize that wasn't his head until I looked at your stock resources. Nicely done. <img src="e.deviantart.net/emoticons/s/s…" width="15" height="15" alt="" data-embed-type="emoticon" data-embed-id="391" title=" (Smile)"/> The perspective of the temple in the background doesn't quite match up with the perspective of the statue (the temple almost looks like it's about to fall over backward). When you select your resources, see if you can match up the perspective vanishing points. I'm pretty sure that Photoshop and some of the other image manipulation programs have a tool where you can skew things to alter their perspectives, but I don't know what that does to the quality of the image, which wouldn't be good for a photomanip... Sorry if that was a useless suggestion. Oops.
But yes. Awesome color choice, awesome composition, and nice touch with the fish. I like the fish. <img src="e.deviantart.net/emoticons/s/s…" width="15" height="15" alt="" data-embed-type="emoticon" data-embed-id="391" title=" (Smile)"/>
