    Took this shot today, a really simple idea that hopefully has worked out.

    Went to WHSmith and bought a set of coloured pencils, placed them on a white piece of A4 paper and took a few shots all from different angles trying to see which would give the most 'striking' picture.

    It has been sharpened up a touch and a slight adjustment on the brightness and contrast to give it a bit more 'feel' Also, a bit of cloning work on PS as the tips of the yellow and red pencils were damaged.

    Added text and a border.

    Comments welcome :)

    I like your lateral thinking! (Why didn't I think of that!)

    Tend to agree - can we see it pre-cloning.. might have a nice character damaged or not.

    Also feel it's slightly over-sharpened...

    Favorite picture so far as I had the same idea as soon as I heard the theme was Colours although I never got round to it, and I would have arranged the tips in a circle :D
    But hey enough about what I would have done :D
    Superb Steve
