Here's an interesting still life called "Clutter" from www.pdphoto.org
Hope you enjoy it.

Nobody likes this one? Maybe I have weird taste!

Buzz, seriously increase saturation, sharpen the heck out of it. Nothing more. Looks much nicer at full resolution.

Amy, I like yours a lot. Yours is good, too, Jaykita.

For mine, I optimized contrast & saturation using PSP's built-in tools. Then used Mehdi's posterizer (available here: http://www.selwane.com/mehdi/). Next, Adobe posterizer, followed by edge-enhance more.

Cheers! & Happy Thanksgiving!
Jeff

Ha! You think YOU have "weird taste"!! Here's "Clutter - playing baseball"

Now that's weird...

I like the image -- it's just the kind that let's you visualize your imagination...

Cat, now this is a picture to hold interest for a long time. The composition and coloring are great. The flow isn't static nor boring. It is one of those abstracts that makes one feel good.
