    All in all a great set of images which proved quite a challenge to rank, what follows is my critique and whilst I have tried to be objective I am afraid that my own personal taste have very probably influenced the results. Thanks to all who put in the effort to submit work to this month’s challenge.

    Nice work, you have nicely replicated the essential elements of your reference image, the colours, pose and costume, whilst your use of an older male model has infused the image with your personal touch. You could have improved your image with the use of a softer light source to tone down the highlights which look a touch over blown and soften up the shadows. Given that it looks like you’ve used natural light a white sheet used as a diffuser would have done the trick.

    You have chosen quite a tricky image to reproduce, but the results are nice despite the limitations you have already recognised. Not having played around with prisms for a long time I have no suggestions as to how you could have improved your results.

    You’ve manage to capture all the main elements of the original image, and you have certainly managed stamp this as your own take on it. However attention to the foreground detail (ie. comparative levelling) and a more considered choice of back ground could have improved your results

    ctrollen
    You have managed to capture all the elements of your reference image and your use of hyper saturation has nicely differentiated your version from Warhol’s original.

    I can certainly see element of the original in your image. A higher point of view however would have brought your image more into line with the original, and we would then have got more of the reflected sky in the surface of the water as depicted in the original.

    So the results from third to first;

    Congratulation to ctrollen, I will look forward to what you challenge us with for the month of August.

    Well done Chris, a difficult one but well executed & thought out. Thanks Jonathan for making our brains work a bit harder than normal.

    Oh, blimey! Once again I am chuffed and honoured to have my entry chosen above some really good other entries. Well done to all who entered and thanks to Jonathan for a great idea. As Dave said, it did make our brains have to work a bit harder, so thanks go to my missus for coming up with the idea because I was struggling!

    If anyone is interested, this is the original OOC shot, taken in my garden with the 100mm macro lens - and only because that was on the camera at the time!

    I had several different versions for the final entry with varying colours & positions (just like Warhol did) and simply chose the one I liked the best.

    I already have an idea for the next challenge, and will post details a little later.

    Jonathan, thanks for setting and judging such a stimulating challenge. Such a shame that more people didn't give it a go because everyone's different ideas are so fascinating. Well done to everyone who did enter; I did keep going back to some and chuckling.
    So congratulations to Chris and looking forward to the next one.

    Jonathan- thanks for setting and judging such an interesting challenge and I totally echo Alex's comments on the lack of entrants when the scope -and people's imaginations - are so wide

    Congratulations to Chris on his fine winning entry and I see he's already posted up the next challenge. Hmm, thinking cap on!
