Just took my phone apart and photographed each layer. Opened them in one file in PE9 (each one on his own layer), inverted the layers and changed opacity for each layer. Added a photo filter and boosted levels a bit.

Been away from DPC for quite a fair while and just getting back into things....

Anyway, greetings from the Critique club.

This is a well constructed image, and fits the challenge well. I'm a tech/geek kinda fella and I find it interesting to look at, but unfortunately not for long.

Once I'm over the 'Oooo, that's kinda cool, wonder how it was done' aspect I find the subject is quite busy and there's no one point of interest or area to concentrate so my eyes flick around looking for something to rest on.

For the subject and method the central framing is probably appropriate but I wonder if it'd been on an angle, or partially cropped it might have given more interesting lines? It's just not holding my interest.

Maybe adding it into a 'natural' surrounding? In a plastic skeleton hand? I'm not sure....

Great effort though, and well executed layering/alpha/color selection. It's just missing that 'something' to bring it up a bit more.

Cheers, Chris H.
