A chipmunk floating in a wheelbarrow. calculations on "screen" of red and green channels (I think) to b/w. then I hue/sat/colorized to yellow and to red, masking the leaves red and the chipmunk yellow. Levels to bump up the light. Sharpen. It's a beautiful noise.

This image fascinates me. Clearly I'm not going for the big score here. I just hope somebody else out there gets the shivers from this.

It didn't give me the shivers, but it did bring tears to my eyes. Mission accomplished, as far as I'm concerned.

I really like the composition and colors, and the processing is awesome. You are incredibly creative. I just wish it wasn't a little dead animal.

I gave it a 7. I'm odd. It's sad and lonely, and the grain is indeed lovely.

Poor little guy. it does sort of seem dreamy, in a nightmare kind of way. Cool processing....well seen.

This picture is intriguing. Is it dead and floating in water?

Oh. Poor thing. This image much softer and more height would have been better in my opinion. However it may be just as you wish. Don't mind the toning. Like your title, fits.

this is very interesting art - I wonder how well it will do in the best photo of the month contest.

Interesting, but doesn't quite do it for me. A little more care in you post processing would be better especially on the very prominent boundary line in the picture
