This looks a bit like one of K's shots. Doesn't matter, your take on the idea is quite nice, too. Wink

Thanks Conrad ... I thought I'd seen this idea before somewhere.

No matter as this is a different interpretation of the scene, and very well executed at that.

My one niggle is that the shadow of the banana looks a little "hard" to me. A bit of gaussian blur should soften the edges nicely.

Thanks for the feedback, I genuinely had not seen the image you referred to Conrad, and I take the point about the shadow Dave, I think on reflection you're right.

It's a shadow not a reflection Dave !!

No criticism intended on you mate ... it's just that I knew I'd seen a similar'ish shot somewhere else. Just proves that both you and K have vivid imaginations.

Thought my ears were burning Wink Don't worry about whether it's been done before, I did a picture of a storm in a teacup not knowing it had already been done on the site but both were very, very different.

Spooky ... these moderators seem to see and hear everything that goes on in EPZ Land.

I'm worried now ....

K's version must have taken a lot longer to achieve as she used smaller peas!

Still a good bit of manipulation, like the reflection of the banana skin.

Great idea, well put together. I find the contrast is on the high side but it doesn't detract.

good idea but the shadow needs to be black to grey all the way through.

Cheers Phil (belatedly) and Terry for the comments. I did take on a whole load of comments from this one, and did post a second 'much-revised' version later. Thanks for viewing and commenting.
