Melon composite in Shake

It has been a while since I was busy with my school's final year project. I made the decision to use Shake as my compositing package so I had to learn it. I decided to take my old melon render passes and try compositing them with a different look in Shake. Here's the result:

The color correction nodes are slightly different than those from Fusion so I'm still trying to get used to it. Also, I find myself slightly uncomfortable with the masking tools. In Fusion, I could use an elipse mask tool to create a vignette and it was that easy easy. In Shake, I had to create a RGrad node and use that as an alpha channel on a black color node. I don't know if there is any other way to go about doing this, so if anyone has any suggestion, do let me know :)

I've also set-up a YouTube account for my final year project:
