Re: Creative Interpretations - Mangrove in Skinny

I definitely like what you did here Steve. I have to admit that I sort of got my inspiration from an ad poster that I saw in the mall (sans water ripple of course) of a gradient silhouette of a lady model being contrast with another gradient for the background.

Albeit a little late I shall attempt to rectify that situation now..
Chris, Outstanding Image! A Very Fine Piece Of Work! Awesome looking picture, indeed!

As a side note.. Your Flickr pages contain an impressive body of work!

Lyle and Steve, I hate to be the bearer of bad news; but, guys in my opinion your efforts pale compared to the original
I agree....the original is simplicity itself, and any way you go. it seems to be overdone or un-needed.

Sweetlight insisted that he posted it for us to work on, and I worked on this interpretation for a long while before I posted what you are probably right in terming a pale effort.

Thanks Ikroll...funny how inspiration can come from many sources.

Maybe that's the kind of thing we should have done, just added a small object to it, like a ship in the distance etc. Then just let the original stand on it's own.

Anyway, now we have seen how a photo can be so good as to be nearly impossible to improve upon.

Thank you Sweetlight...

Steve C.

No argument from me OB; just decided that I would play. Can't improve on perfection, and the capture is just that.
