The photo below needs a subject, placed in the lower left hand third of the image (imo).

Your mission, should you decide to accept, is to place something in the water, making it look as if it were there when the photo was taken. Neatness counts, as does originality and anything else I think should count. *grin*

You may modify the original as you see fit.



Good luck.

Jerry


THE ENTRIES:

OK Jerry, you asked for it!

So I bent the rules a little.


Please see below for the edited version, thanks.

Ummmmm.....

Jerry.....

You SAID our challenge is to place something "in" the water... Your own example shows a bird "over" the water.

Clarify the rules, sir.

And what's the prize?

Robt

You are correct - I violated my own rules. 'In' the water, if you please.

As for a prize (other than the knowledge of a job well done) - I'll think of something - perhaps a gift certificate for lunch at some chain restaraunt? (I can buy them here and send tot he winner).

BTW, Robt, I've tried contacting you by email and yahoo with no apparent luck. Hope your get-together with Michael went well.

p.s. It's a Klingon Bird-of-Prey

Hi - just wanted to make it clear that it's Jerry issuing the challenge and offering the prize (I like cash Jerry) not Eratosphere.

Jerry:

The fault's all mine, I am a million miles behind of everything. Visit went exceedingly well.

As to your challenge, the real problem here is we're looking straight DOWN on that ihnlet, so it's going to have to be an image that's also seen from above, and those ain't easy to find....

Doesn't anybody have a good shot of Nessie? This seems to be a perfect Photoshop opportunity to create legend as well as an image.

And there's also an opportunity for a new contest. Name the Location! Looks vaguely Adriatic to me, but knowing a bit about Jerry's travels I'd guess Maine or Norway.
