I wondered downtown one morning with this challenge in mind. I took pictures of several tall buildings. When I looked through them I thought they were decent but nothing special. However, I didn't realize at the time that this was an extended editing challenge. Once I figured that out I tried to think of something to do with them. When no clever ideas came to mind, I just looked for any interesting images that I could combine with it. I wasnt sure how people would react to this blend of a woman blended with a 98 story building. Thanks for the votes and comments.

Did i mention the building is Trump Tower? I opted to clone out the giant TRUMP on the side of it. I thought the juxtaposition of a young woman and the word Trump in 30 foot letters gave the image a whole different tone. If I had left the letters I might have been tempted to title it something that might have alienated a number of voters.

I did some standard processing to black and white of an image of Trump tower and an image of Jada. Then, 90% of the processing was taking the tower as the base layer and adding the image of Jada and setting the Jada layer to "Lighten"

Congrats on the ribbon! You did a fabulous job with this and your model has a gorgeous, interesting and strong profile. Good idea to erase Trump. Really, can you do it some more.

Congrats on the ribbon, Mark. My equal top pick with the winner. Beautifully done - I'm glad you got rid of the Trump (oh, wish it could be that easy).

I knew that was a Trump tower. Somehow I always thought you were in NYC. Now I'm questioning everything. A beautiful image against some good competition! =)

How very interesting. You made me stop and look.... then look some more.... then look again. You made me think and puzzle and wonder.

This is somewhat "weird", but I very much appreciate how much it drew me in and that it does fit the challenge.

Well done!
