This would make for an interesting thread ... even more interesting than the one about breaking the space-time-continuum to submit photos.
FYI: gave this an 8. I would be curious to know how this whole thing was done.

This is really brilliant. Not sure if I like the bit of plant life sticking up from the surface or not. It may not work so well without it but I have a strong urge to clone it out:) Really impressive photo - well done. I hope this ribbons for you. 10
