This picture is going to do horribly- Thats ok, it was purely for my own enjoyment while stuck immobile sick with the stomach flu.

Its supposed to look like an woodcutting I have of a cover of Paradise Lost. Except that its Dice and as far from looking like the Garden of Eden as I could create (thats actually Alcatraz in the background).

Cropped, dodge, Cartoon filter, cloned out some reflective crud on the background photo.

I am truly sorry this came out so low in rankings. It was a superbly executed foto. In the top 5 of those I rated. (Gave it a 9.)

Both my mom and fiance "awwwwed" when they saw it. It garnered one of the best reactions of all the entries I showed them. Be proud. DPC does not always accept very creative shots.

In fact, I bet if you made this one available as a print you'll see more success than many ribbon fotos.

Bit too grainy for my personal tastes, but bumping up one after second look for creativity and originality.
