I had intended to do a very different shot but it didn't work so rather I settled for this instead. A small box of eggs (original shot in mod section), much cloning and then some local colourisation.

Eggstremely good (sorry Smile) Like the metallic-look and the colours work really well together.

A click for the PS work alone. I still can't work out how you got the cloning so seemless.

Very different from the origimal shot taken with loads of thought & colour processing put in. The result I think is outstanding!

I clicked on this simply because the thumbnail told me to.

Very surprised that this only received a few clicks, deserves more IMO.

Nice one Pete

Great idea - wonder if the perspective is not quite square on as the image seems to "lean" a little (only a fraction) left to right. Perhaps the egg box was not quite square on to your camera. Love the idea though wonder if brighter stronger colours would improve impact and I would have maybe avoided symmetry between first and last column of eggs. Nit picky sod - sorry!

Coming across like one of these optical games that plays havoc with the eye sight. A hell of a lot of work Pete, but worth it for originality.
Thanks for the Birthday Wishes appriciated, and yes the music was good.

great looking image pete - the opposing egg colour really stands out well against the others. i'm wondering what the chicks/chickens will look like if the eggs are this range of colours - will make for an interesting site =)

keep up the great work - this was definitely worth the effort put in

Very striking Pete. Excellent graphic.

IMHO it would have benefited from either a slight crop on the left to mirror the right edge or - preferably - an inclusion of a bit more of the tray on the right to mirror the left edge... (DOes that make sense?)

My compliments.

Mike

Eggs are relatively boring (though tasty with ketchup) - but you've made them alot more exciting to look at in their original form here. Great abstract.
