When I read the challenge description I checked my dpc profile with all the different objects, subjects, people, places, etc. I’d photographed during my dpc life. There didn’t seem much room for “not my style”…

Here’s the list
Spoons, Knives, Forks, Garlic, Boots, Plastic foil, Shampoo, Bottles, Marbles, Candle holders,
Flowers (dead and alive), Plants, Fly, Lathe, Glass cup and saucer, Fruit (various), Inside and outside churches, Salted peanuts, Eggs, Smoke, Fire, Portraits (family, friends and strangers), Landscapes,
Boats, Paper Clip, Shells, Crucifix, Watches, Ice, Plastic pasta fork, Vegetables (various), Leaves, Water, Grass, Glass cocktail sticks, Glasses (also broken), Mirrors, Gummy bears, Paper, Earth, Feathers, Roll of film, Paint, Galileo Thermometer, Woody, Sugar, Electric lightbulbs, Jars (various), Syringe, Bread, Hairbrush, Dishes (various), Santa, Candles, Dishwater, Architecture, Pot lids, Magnifying glass, Onion and onion skin, Pens, Cameras (one of them underwater), Guitar, Hotel corridor, Wire, Reeds, Straws, Pasta, Slinky, Stones, Baby shoes, Room with chair,Viaduct, Skewers, Chess pieces, Cups, Dandelions, Coffee, Tea, Broken glass, Can of Coke, Pencils, Tacks, Needles, Dice, Bubbles, Coins, Jewelery, Birds,Wire whisk, Sunglasses, Jigsaw pieces,
B/W Photography, HDR Photography, Macro Photography, Infrared photography, Product photography, “In the style” of photography, Abstract photography, Light Painting, Motivational Posters…

…not to mention an extraction hood, my finger, a milky way, a very uncooperative snail and an extremely photogenic, talking sheep….

Soooo… I decided to do an “In the style of” image of Christiane Bubel 21_F.gif bubeltrubel.
I’ve always wanted to do this because I love her work, especially the beautiful, delicate feather images she does. The blue is not quite as silvery as hers.
I see that a few of my commenters think that someone is doing my style. Hmm…
Anyway, it was a definitely a challenge trying to capture her style.
I much appreciate the comments and votes. Thanks.

Well done, and beautiful work as always but come on Irene, not your style? ;) Not to mention #3 in your style.

Congratulations on the blue, Irene. It is a lovely image (but, I would think, very Ireneish.)

LOL. How is this not your style?

Beautiful image!

I am like others and felt this was your style, looks like you like other peoples style that is similar to your own. It's funny, when I saw this challenge I thought about trying to copy your style, glad I didn't try!

As soon as I saw it, I knew it was yours. lol, the reason people think it is yours is because you have feather shots in your port about 11 times and about 4 times they have water drops on them and bubeltrubel only has a feather in about 3 shots in her port. SO that is the confusion I think! Still a most stunning image!

I am sad. I would have sworn you'd do something different, something that isn't 100% your signature style.

Stunning photo, but very disappointing.

Well, Irene, monochromatic rendition of water drop on object seems to me VERY much in the style of you, but what do I know? Lovely image, congrats on the blue.

I love how the light looks to reflect off the surface and create a gradient.

This is such a great photograph, nearly completely perfect in all its possible ways. Nearly, because I don't know why my eyes keep being attracted by the spot in the left middle, near the feather. Just because of this I didn't want to vote from the first moment I saw this entry. But there's too much which is well perfect that I will not look at the spot any more.
