This is the original photo of Antelope Slot Canyon. It just screamed 'whale' at me.

This is the modified version. Whales frequently have carbuncles and scars; it's the way they're identified. Graffiti was the first thing I thought of about this whale sounding in the moonlit waters.

I find the first photo very beautiful, the second to me actually looks like a fish, with a big eye, small mouth and goldfish type tail. A very deep sea fish, dark and mysterious.

Ross,
Your response reminds me that each piece of visual or written expression brings a very individual response from the reader or viewer. That is one of the purposes of art, is it not? Thank you so much for commenting.

Slot Canyon
 
I couldn't agree more. This immediately made me think of Aron Ralston (I haven't seen the film, but I remember that a slot canyon was what he got stuck in !) So, for me, this looks beautiful but claustrophobic...

Those slot canyons are one of the great mysteries and the great wonders of our earth. I wouldn't want to be stuck in one though! Makes me think of those ice structures in Iceland.
