my tribute to his amazed photo and to him.

this was done with a similar technique to his, I suppose... copying the same photo onto itself in smaller versions to create a maze. but instead of squares, I use masking to make it a more organic maze.

the original is sunlight through trees through a window.

This is like those NG images to show how one's eyes are fooled.

Voted earlier coming back to comment.

I guess I'm really with the old crowd that I remember Charlie Baker without having to even look this up at all:-) Never truly did understood his shift in doing really avant-garde compositions. I do remember voting in two back to back challenges where I ran smack into Charlie's new work and spent the next few minutes struggling with laughter and feeling the sting because I my coffee went down the wrong way;-) As a tribute piece, it does emulate some of the lines and shapes of the original, but it lacks that same piercing, hypnotic, eye-straining quality due to it missing those bold yellows & blacks (Oh, my eyes!!!) :-) I think if you had limited the composition to two strong, contrasting colors to strongly accent the shapes the photo would have been better and a stronger connection to Charlie Baker's piece...although, I do thank you for this one is easier on the eyes to look upon than the original;-P
