    Default Challenge 132 - Recreate an image

    The title is Recreate an image. Choose an image that speaks to you, it could be an old Flemish master or a contemporary artist, it could be an image from a photographer that you admire, it could be a still from a film, or it could be something current that has appeared in the news. The choice is yours, let you imagination run wild, but whatever image you choose be sure to put your own spin on it.

    When you post your entry be sure to put a link to your reference image in your entry as well, as we all need to know where your inspiration came from.

    I'll be looking at not just how well you managed to replicate your image but also how you made it your own.

    Please abide by the general rules:
    • The competition subject shall be selected by the winner of the preceding competition who will also judge the competition.
    • One picture per person; images should conform to general image posting rules.
    • Please use an EOS Canon camera - DSLR or M series.
    • Posted images should be taken during the running period of the competition. Any images submitted that were taken before the competition started, or after the competition has ended, will be deemed invalid.
    • Images 800 pixels widest max (to help those with small monitors).
    • No Photoshop frames and borders.
    • Include a link to your reference image
    • Please, NO comments on images- on this or another thread- until the round is over.
    • No canvassing e.g. “I’m thinking of posting this image for the challenge, what do you think?”
    • I will pick 1st, 2nd and 3rd favourite images (please don’t PM me to discuss my choices).

    Closing date for posted entries this time is Midnight BST on Sunday 6th August.

    So please, get shooting and I look forward to seeing the entries.

    Egon Schiele was thought of as controversial, self-indulgent and pornographic during his short but productive lifetime. History has dealt kindly with him and his "Seated woman with bent knee"- is now considered a masterpiece

    My model has none of the youth, suppleness and serenity that Shiele's model seems to take for granted.

    Didn't work out as well as I'd hoped, but thought I'd post it anyway if only to raise a smile at schadenfreude. My attempt at the album cover of probably the greatest album ever made (in my humble opinion, of course).

    Dark Side of the Moon:

    I bought a prism specially and was rather hoping that I would shine a light into it and a beautiful spectrum would burst forth like you see in the illustrations. In actual fact it was a very muted set of colours. I have pushed the saturation to the limit to make it visible which has degraded it somewhat but hey ho, it is what it is. I could of course have drawn the colours in PS but that sort of seemed against the spirit of the Challenge.

    Andy Warhol debuted his "Flowers" set of paintings in 1964 (the year I was born). They were all based around a photo he had originally seen in a magazine called Modern Photography, so it seemed quite apt that we've gone full circle. All of the canvases were square and consisted of four flowers, although there are many variations in colours. Mine is based on a single head of a Cosmos in my garden.

    With the dead line quickly approaching, this is a gentle reminder for Chris J and Daisy M to provide links to their reference images, if they wish their entries to be considered. I have no intention of hunting through Google Images no matter how well known the reference might be.
