Re: Aug/Sep 2013 Contest
Delayed...was hoping a few things might come in that didn't. Will see what I can come up with.
Colorization and manipulation
The provided lovely image needs some color to bring it to life. In addition, you must also ADD a sculpted topiary to the image AND a water fountain in the middle! It should not be obvious that they were added.
