My entry for the iconic photo challenge - It's my version of The Pond - Moonlight by Edward Steichen, famous for being the most expensive photograph ever sold in 2006.

I stayed true to the challenge rules and didn't look at the original while I was working on it - end result is a bit messy in places and could probably do with a couple more hours work but I got bored and the deadline was looming...

It kind of looks like an old Sierra adventure game background to me.

The reflection looks absolutely brilliant, and i love the colours you used

Great work :>

Cheers everyone!

FlyGuy: I wonder if the whole thing might have benefitted from straight lines, the near and far shores as well, not just the tree line... Something to bare in mind if I ever do something similar.

Indeed it does have on old Sierra look to it :)

 Sweet work:)

The only correction I would advise, is to make the tree line flatter. Yours seems to bend upward in a semi circle manner. The original was a straight line horizon. Good work otherwise.

Very nice work here. Really dig the colors you used.

Shiru: Yeah, the reflections at the edges are definetly off - I added more trees at one point and then I forgot to mirror them in the reflections... Maybe due a revision at some point.

Looking good overall, but reflection in water differs from source, and it's noticeable (thus reflection looks strange).

Wow! You really made a very cool version of it!
