Award Shortlist   

M C Escher Greek style

By PatriciaWilson      
Re-post of an image I wasn't sure about. Thanks for all your help. I've left the other posting because I couldn't bring myself to remove all the great comments.

Many copy and paste shots of Crete and Santorini, inspired by the artist M C Escher. The only major problem with the composite was to choose shots with the same lighting.
