Yours looks good Clare, not sure what that is coming down from the ceiling but cool nonetheless. I may have to work on another one.
What's coming down from the ceiling? Why, it's an architectural element supporting the drape of course. Darned if I know. Ask the inky guy! I tried making a waterfall come out of it, then I tried a stained glass hummingbird, but neither worked and only made it look busy and distracting. So I made a couple minor changes and reposted it.

Hoops, I like the humor!

Here's my lopsided sense of humor. Using that same thing coming down out of the ceiling, ha.

Spooky, curious piece of art work there smoke. It gives me rather a queasy feeling though when I consider the word "feminizing" in conjunction with this image. Or for that matter, try to find the feminine . . . alien life form perhaps. But I do like the syringe, ingenious.

thanks mate , i couldnt come up with anything with one of the original images so i thought id join two and see what it looked like and i saw a cross and a possible sword handle so i thought of the sword in the stone , happy with the outcome it took a bit to get it merged together

pretty good and welcome , whats my sword handle doing in your image :cheesygrin:
Hi egosbar
I only saw your image just now when a I read your comment...very nicely done, I like it a lot.

But please believe me, it is just a big coincidence, and I feel rather silly about it.

When I started with my creation I copied the original picture and mirrored it on a new layer. I saw then that I had a "female symbol" as an idea for my picture to create. The "male symbol" followed, then I arranged it with the background picture from St. Petersburg in Russia.

I'm a PS user since 1994, mainly in printing business...
...I' brightened up the left side of the image deliberately to give it more depth and simulate an artificial environment.

Welcome to the forum Chris and SITM! I'm really glad you chose to join in the challenge. Nice work both of you.

SITM, for not having much PS experience, bravo. Keep up the good work.

I have noticed that most of the work using this form has a very visceral quality. Initially, I would never have thought such an architectural element would lend itself to such organic imagery. Not so.

Really good entries everyone.

WOW.. this has now took off i see.. beginning to think it was the wrong type of challenge to put forward...

I like them all.... fantastic work by all.... can't wait to see if anyone else comes up with what you can do with that image, didn't expect such good workings of it..

The winner will be a tough one to choose as they are all so good... Keep it going ...

Thank you.
