Just a bit of fun...don't think it would go well. I had so many fantastic ideas for this challenge but the weather and my busyness prohibited me. I put this in for a laugh!

POST: I wanted a kind of LOST IN SPACE theme. Not sure how the '&' happened in the title. I was so glad to finis 19th in such a strong challenge. There are some amazing images above and below me...well done everyone. Hope we can do this again.

This is so totally cool! I giggled so much, plus I read the book (Jonathan Livingston Seagul), so it has a special meaning to me, bonus!

Well done!

Great concept and a nice "lost in Space" feel to it. 9

Il ike the fact that the gull looks sorta unpredictable. Well done.

Nice composite. The BW actually works really well to give it that BBC sci-fi look. The lighting works well between the 2 images.

They're so calm about the whole thing... right until they get their faces pecked off. Stupid scientists!

nice use of tones.. they make the picture look like it's meant to be this way..

Good choice toning it as that makes it easier to pull off. I do wish there was some background to complete the shot and make it a little more believable.

Wonderfully daft!

Interesting idea here, but it seems the shadows don't look right between the figures. Really throws the idea off, as well as flat feet on uneven rocks for the bird.

This is absolutely hysterical and very well done. A welcome respite from the many grossly overworked images, and from the prevailing "alien-futuresque" tone of most of the shots. I hope this does very well for you. Bumpimg

Neat idea. It's fun and brought a chuckle.

I know this is a generous score, but I'm a sucker for wit like this.
I would have taken off a point if you had added "Livingston"....
Given the rest of the composition though, shouldnt the feet have been in clearer focus?

Nice tones and very captivating.

LOL! Excellent photo, too.

LOL, nicely done. Black and white suits the era in which this kind of sci-fi seems to fit best.

I really like the idea of this. I'm missing a bit of contrast in the foreground. I might play with dodge on the shrubs and perhaps a bit of contrast adjustment. Still, it's very believable.

love this!

Excellent detail, I like the tones.

Well done. But I don't think the tone fits the image. color would have been nice.
