For first time I am in a challenge.

Done using MS Paint and also MS Picture Manager to impact tones and contrast and crop. Mostly good old Paint. The apple is at the bottom right and the rest done just with apple image and some typing - that may also break a rule.


Here are some of the background images assembled and then nit picked from:

Ha! are these two beady "eyes" belonging to some pencil-pushing bean-counting insurance drone? Love it! give me a bit more time, and I'll start catching up with everyone

Your work is so recognizable, it couldn't be mistaken for anyone else's. You have a pretty unique way of presenting your subject matter. Now it is amazing what you have done with the apple, which has all but disappeared, but there we see it clearly in the reconstruct.

It is very clear that you do not want things to look like they do and I guess I don't either. We only want them to have the memory of what they looked like, I suppose. It is good to see where you started from. It gives me some frame of reference.

It's amazing how a clear glass apple can have the 'stall effect' no numbers, colours etc to bounce from. It's different too when you work with an image your given as opposed to one you chose. Good on you for entering the challenge, I am sure it will be the first of many.

Sure Eve is confused... Adam crunched the numbers instead of the apple ;)

The text stated "an apple a day keeps the bill collector away."

There I said it - no more secrets - thanks for your comments.
