This is an idea i had after the Red challenge had finished. When i saw the chance to go back to older challenges i thought i'd have a go at it. :-)

I like it. What is the background? It looks like a fireworks shot that was posted yesterday.

This is the type of shot that would look good on a promotional poster for the book. I am a Tom Clancy fan from way back but I am way behind in reading his books. I have three at home including two that are around 1100 pages!

Thanks cal. The background is just a mahogany coloured desk. I only started reading Tom Clancy recently after my dad gave me one of his books. I've just started Rainbow Six which is around 900 pages so that should keep me going for a bit. :-)

That is a great entry for the Red challenge and a good photograph in its own rights. You thought about what you were doing and it shows.

You could play with this one for a while then, if you've been thinking about it. How about introducing some lights and shadows? Making it more dramatic.
