Anything goes in this game but if you submit more than one entry only one can be considered for judging by the week's host. As it stands right now chemtech is going to have her work cut out for her judging this round!

Thanks for the clarification . I removed my other two entries and decided to go with my graphical interpretation as my entry.

all done in gimp as usual... just tried to warm it up a little and simplify with a lot of cloning around to make it an open pathway for a swan to meander through...

Trying to learn using Gimp more since it has enourmous power but have a bit of a steep treshold.
For anybody interested in using gimp more (in windows or mac), check out Partha's latest build here... It includes a lot of gimp scripts and plugins (my fave being g'mic) and most notably in this 2.8.4 release from Partha, includes a port of v.19 of ufraw... So if you drag a raw file into gimp, it will open in ufraw first for 16-bit adjustments and then export into gimp for 8-bit edits from there.. (Just also note that there is a known bug where if you resize the ufraw window after opening the file, it will crash, so just maximize the window and leave it alone after that).. If you have a beefy system and want/need to do 16-bit editing, I also recommend Partha's 2.9 build of gimp. (Use the portable compile so it's self contained..) 2.9 allows you to edit straight in 16-bit using gimp.. Partha doesn't make linux versions but if you're running linux you know gimp is there for you... ;-)

(Also... if you're into working in LAB, Delaboratory is available on Partha's site, and it's awesome too... 16-bit editor and exports into gimp)

lgt525, After I read about your decision to remove some of your entries, I was concerned, that your enthusiasm for this round might have been affected.
Happy to see that isn't the case.

Thanks Edith No, I just didn't want to have to write a confusing post about which entry was the "official" entry of mine and to try to explain which ones to disregard lol.

Wow, Todd, thanks for sharing all the great info about Gimp and a linky, too! I'm off to check out ufraw and Partha, BTW.

Thanks, again!
