This is more art than photographic skill & I didn't even do the 'art' part very well! I made this in about 90 minutes from several sheets of construction paper after seeing something roughly similar in an art book. I thought about making a 'paper splash' type reference in the title but obviously went with the canvas one instead.

The fact that this placed 4th just reiterates how much DPC is not necessarily about the photography itself but everything that goes into the image. IMO, this one doesn't exhibit great skill in any area, it just happens to be a neat idea which obviously has a strong first impression!

Thanks for all the very nice comments & votes!

Very nicely done, and congratulations on achieving 3rd highest K10D score so far (you knocked me off third spot. What a heady few weeks that was. ;-Þ )

Lovely! The background looks washed out though.
Just kidding. 7 It would have been a 5 if you had centered it with a square crop. Nice job.

this is really cool. what a fantastic idea!!!
i wish the border of the subject was a bit more defined though. not a big issue enough to affect the score though :)

I think you'd have had a 10, if this was a really tight, upclose shot. Like the colors pouring out at you. Great concept though!!

This is a cool effect. Looks almost like an airbrush painting with it's crisp lines and smooth gradients.

I've seen this before; there's an artist who creates these colorful things out of cutting paper. You've done a nice job of recreating the effect. I like the use of negative space on the right side too.
