    Default Straw Spiral

    Final round of a print competition coming up in a couple of weeks and I always struggle with stupid themes, which for this round is plastic.

    So I bought a pack of plastic straws and turned them into a bit of digital art

    I very much like that Stan.

    Focal point in the perfect place, love the spiral and I suspect a lot more work in this that than might be initially imagined. I am thinking if vibrant colours where necessary, fading out to pastels and do I detect some superimposition to fill the space?

    Either way, if I were still judging, that would attract very high marks. First for the initial idea, implementation, impact, composition and wow factor. That should be a ten in any judges book for that competition .................... though you can never pre-judge a judge. Let us know how you get on.

    the basis for this was a shot of a bunch of straws looking straight down on them and then in photoshop using my trusty "spiral action" to turn it into a spiral before cropping for composition
