<<< o >>>little planet #2 35 comments + add yours

Yesterday, I said that I wasn't especially happy with the first 'little planet' I put up. I'm much happier with this one :-)

And again, it was constructed using the instructions on daily dose of imagery.

Update: just a quick note to let you know that I won't be posting anything new today (15.10.07). I'll get something up tomorrow.

They are both great, but I agree, this one is top notch.

incredible ball! You can insert a tennis racket.

comment by Ash at 05:56 PM (GMT) on 24 October, 2007

You were right Dave, this one is far better I feel. Not that yesterday's was bad by any means, but you're right to prefer this one!

You're getting the hang of this ;) This is spot on with the tower dead centre - very Blackpool. Can't wait to see th'illuminations version!

Fort me it looks like a guitar.
Crazy things you are doing :-)

Pretty neat!. This reminds me of the flash game from a while back "Grow" http://www.albinoblacksheep.com/flash/grow

Very cool. I'm going to try this with a roll of film & a scanner & photoshop.

I have checked in for a couple a days and when I saw this picture, I actually said outloud "Oh my gosh, what is it?" Very awesome. :)

comment by Gavin at 01:23 AM (GMT) on 25 October, 2007

Both of these are incredible! I'll have to give them a try sometime. I'm not sure why but I think i prefer yesterdays one. Theres something about the distortion of the pier that really makes it. I love the positioning of the tower in this one though, it's perfect!

comment by birgit at 10:15 AM (GMT) on 25 October, 2007

hi david, this one is truly outstanding! I wonder how much time you spend on this piece of art ?

you got this one right!

comment by Steve Tainton at 12:42 PM (GMT) on 25 October, 2007

You know yesterday I thought to myself "I wonder what it would look like with the tower more prominent? . . . "

Now I know ! - makes me think of George Formby, His Ukelele (Banjo) singing "With my little stick of Blackpool Rock"

comment by Chase at 01:22 PM (GMT) on 25 October, 2007

The huge blue spaces makes it for me. The color blue is so unreal and it just lefts this rather odd image feel good.

comment by Alex at 02:15 PM (GMT) on 25 October, 2007

I like the previous one more!

comment by Jorge at 07:47 PM (GMT) on 25 October, 2007

Mario Galaxy anyone......

comment by jelb at 10:10 PM (GMT) on 25 October, 2007

Well done...Odd photo..Bravo!

comment by Alistair Digiphotology at 11:36 PM (GMT) on 25 October, 2007

Hi Dave, I could not believe my eye when I opened this image, you must be picking up my magnetic waves again or vica versa! I was just about to post one of these creations but having seen this and yesterdays effort I don't think I will bother, these are quite superb. I shall make a note to myself..... must do better!

comment by Rv at 12:55 AM (GMT) on 26 October, 2007

This would make an unbelievable poster.

comment by Saito at 03:25 AM (GMT) on 26 October, 2007

This pictures is amazing! I agree that it's more eye catching than the first one, probably because of the amazing cloud stripe and the bold red tower. This is amazing. I could see it used in an advertisement or maybe a CD cover. Or just fantastic art on a wall.

comment by Mohamadreza at 05:34 AM (GMT) on 26 October, 2007

Nice shot, well done,

comment by csj at 01:45 PM (GMT) on 26 October, 2007

Amazing, I must give it a go.... altho I dont have a huge tower to include. I need to find another equally as large upright object...... ho hum.

comment by Katch PHOTO at 04:05 PM (GMT) on 26 October, 2007

wow ..Fantastic ...

comment by djn1 at 04:49 PM (GMT) on 26 October, 2007

Thanks all :-)

comment by Alice at 07:45 PM (GMT) on 26 October, 2007

Makes me think of a bizarre electric guitar...

comment by chiara at 11:21 PM (GMT) on 29 October, 2007

That's incredible. I can't wait to try this effect. Thanks for sharing :)
