Thanks again to my wife, without her this shot wouldn't have been possible because as you can see my hands are busy drawing ;)

I had this idea for the camouflage challenge, but I have been getting bad numbers for thinking out of the box... this might have not been counted as a camouflage example so I decided to go for the Single Light Source.

If there is interest I will later post a how to... hope you like it, hope it makes above 6... Time for a ribbon? pleaaseeee.

Second thoughts... decided to shoot again, my wife was very supportive at 7am, this is my best choice. After 50+ shots this is what I think Escher would have done if he was dying for a ribbon as I do ;)

Very nice execution! An Escher classic. But it seems there are at least two light sources (based on shadows of pencil points).
  Photographer found comment helpful.
11/22/2005 10:11:31 PM
There is no need to validate this image. Very well executed.-

Very clever idea, nicely executed.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
11/22/2005 02:57:52 AM
The idea is really clever. Maybe if you had waited for a less restrictive challenge you could have taken the absolute best shot. Maybe the 'single light source' limited your options a little. Still a great shot, though.

11/21/2005 11:56:31 PM
awsome photograph!!! congratulations...M.C. Escher it´s proud and happy...(wherever he is) l.o.l...definitive a blue one

11/21/2005 10:57:43 PM
Very clever idea. I would like to see the darkarea at the top lightened a little.

Nice crativity and great use of light...I had to really think on the score for this one. I leaned for a 7 because it doesn't blow my socks off but the lighting you have on the hands is incredible to me so I'm going against my own better judgement and giving you an 8
  Photographer found comment helpful.

Creative idea. One of my favorite photos of the challenge
  Photographer found comment helpful.
11/18/2005 08:16:42 PM
the only thing that really annoys me about this is that there is a left and a right hand, insted of two right hands mirroring each other.
11/18/2005 03:57:02 PM
There is alot going on in this picture. it's alittle busy.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
11/18/2005 03:30:58 PM
my favorite in the challenge. great job
  Photographer found comment helpful.
11/18/2005 02:07:19 PM
I like the shot although to me it looks a bit too much USM
  Photographer found comment helpful.
11/18/2005 02:00:30 PM
Original shot.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
11/18/2005 01:34:42 PM
Great idea, especially since it looks like you didn't have the luxury of two models, guessing that both hands are yours. Dramatic lighting, good color choices, very well conceived and executed.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
11/18/2005 03:19:20 AM
You just stay and watch for a moment... I like it !! There is a slight disturbing shade on the lower right corner.... a little bit too much shade on the upper side... the idea is great !
  Photographer found comment helpful.
11/18/2005 02:09:16 AM
This is really good. All the way down to the pores in the skin.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
11/17/2005 05:23:54 PM
Great subject and brilliantly lit (I've always liked that picture). My only 10 for the challenge. I hope you win, my photo pales in comparison.

Definitely caught my attention... pretty bizzare!

Very creative, very well lit.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
11/17/2005 06:09:34 AM
This is a very interesting photo.
I'm intrigued as to who Escher may be...
  Photographer found comment helpful.
11/17/2005 02:22:45 AM
A very creative idea which I felt has been wasted on this 'perticular' challenge. Sorry. But like I said I love the idea and gave you a 7.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
11/16/2005 08:24:55 PM
nice idea but this looks over-sharpened to me
  Photographer found comment helpful.
11/16/2005 11:48:19 AM
Great idea, I think you want a ribbon with this creative display ... 8
  Photographer found comment helpful.
11/16/2005 11:24:30 AM
Might just mess around and get yourself a ribbon with this great submission.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
11/16/2005 11:22:30 AM
nicely done, good lighting
  Photographer found comment helpful.

This is ultimately the most clever entry. Great shadow and the use of the paper and drawing and the artist's reference. BRAVO!!!!!! (clap clap clap)
