I particularly like your version as well as Steve's.
Steve, did you use any non-Photoshop plugin for yours? Just curious...
Sylvia
Most of the time I use layering and a plugin or plugins. I think I used Buzz and sketching mainly on this one. No non-Photoshop plugins.

And thanks.

Re: stairs

Used "best of" individual color channels (layer masks, blend modes).

Stretched the right side of the final image a bit and cropped so the stairs would not be "right in the middle."

Looks like Seamless Droste is a GIMP trick, true? Pretty neat!

Re: stairs

steve, i really like that. simple, clean and really brings out a nice old world flavor.

and alex, i really like your 2nd one, the dark one. i had considered doing a dark also, but now that i see yours, no need

palms, very moody, gritty. i like it

jordan, nice. hadnt even thought about giving it a worn look. nicely done

peter, also moody, but with a colored pencil sort of look. nice

that 2nd looks like a polar coordinates, lyle. havent seen any of those around here in a while.

Re: stairs

Thanks for the comments Danny/Craig. Yes, Droste preset in Mathmap (a special GIMP filter though a stand-a-alone version is available for the MAC's) was used. Make Seamless is a GIMP filter too. Also, for the Amazing circle, the recently made a Script-fu (much better even then the Action that's available for PS) for it.

Mathmap filter: http://www.complang.tuwien.ac.at/schani/mathmap/
