Good idea sergio. I've just posted a low quality one (11KB). The reason why I posted the link was let the thread load quicker. If everyone posts their image in the thread it will take a while to open.
I probably noticed the coloured lines because I was zoomed in for editing.

I've taken the liberty of doing two more. I hope that is ok. Again, low quality images posted. To see the better versions click the images.

Pasted original into PSP8
=
Pasted my last entry into PSP8 as a new layer
=
Set opacity to something like 80%. I'm sorry but I've closed the window.
=
Black pencil filter on both. Detail - 100, Opacity - 15





Pasted original into PSP8
=
Turned to negative image



So stupidly simple, yet I think this one is the best so far.

I agree - I like the last one best - and quality of viewing on these really doesn't matter, so you're OK, ferny - it's equivalentto us taking someone's photo and roughly sketching our ideas over it for them to see ourthoughts and opinions-our renderingdoesn't need to be perfect - just a thumbnail of oursuggestions- because in the end (and in the beginning and middle, too), the photo is theirs and whether they choose to use any of our suggested tweaks or just dump them all in the wastebasket is their decision. :-)

Nice ones, ferny !

BTW, monkey143,ferny set up things in such a way that if u click on them you will appreciate a bigger version with all of the details included.

The idea of the pen has yield something very intersting which could be in turn a new starting point.

Funny how the inverse one looks like being a normal shot when the light is off !

PLEASE forgive me. This is what came to mind when I saw the lamp. Of course, pizza is in my mind quite a bit. It should be it's own food group :-)
This is not a serious entry. I spent about 5 minutes in Photoshop for this...obviously.

Sorry again,
mactek

Mactek - fantastically creative! I love it! Every entry is a serious one; that's what a free-for-all is about!



Here's mine:

Why forgiving you ? Why sorry ? Why not a serious entry ?

That's definitly another version I never thought of when I shot at the lamp.

So, fantasy still exists then and this is a good news !!!

The idea iscool and the crumbs you intentionally put are GREAT !

Two suggestions, if Imay :

- maybe the "pizza" should have been vertically flipped in order for perspective to be consistent

- just try playing with antialias and feature as well as contractwhen selecting : the selection borders will become much more smooth ( I'm mainly talking about the chopping board) and realistic.

Hey, I would like to partecipate to the challenge in an active way : nobody posting ? It doesn't need to be neither a bad nor a good shot : it can just be a shot were you want some more hints or it can also be something that youthrow into the "arena" just to see what will happen ! C'mon, there's really nothing to be shy at all !

Oh, Ohhhhh, monkey143, that's a real artistic entry !

Wonderful, and I appreciated you picking the original lamp colours as a base for your gradients.

Yeah, I loved mactek's crumbs, too - you can tell you're a pro, mac!

I'm about ready to post one for you, brtsergio! Thanks for testing the water. Hope it's not too cold. Even if it is, I'm jumping in, too! :-)(PS - glad you caught the gradient colors. I had fun playing with that, thinking I was spending too much time on some minute detail. Like when a woman buys a new pair of shoes that she doesn't need and cost too much - worth it when someone says, "are those new shoes?":-))
